Looking for a trout/eye report for the Gunflint area.

3 posts in this topic

Hey anyone that has been around the Gunflint the past two weeks or will be up in the next two, I'm looking for info for how the bite has been. I will be up with my wife and doing hiking, fall leaf tour and fishing with some nice dinners thrown in. I fish the Gunflint early June for the last 20 years so I am actually looking to shore fish a few areas for trout, eyes and might have the canoe for a portage or two. I'm looking forewards to just doing a little backroading and checking out some of the out of the way lakes but like it if I could get her on a trout or two. I know the stream trout took a beating earlier this year and I am looking more towards the lakes. Can you catch lakers from the harbour area in Grand Marais? We will be up the 14-17th. I don't want specific spot info just looking for some new terrritory, some scenery and the possibility of getting my wife onto a trout or two for dinner. Thanks in advance!

I was up at pine lake this past weekend (paddle from mcfarland in BWCA) and we did pretty good on walleyes. 5 guys about 30 eyes. 1 nice 6 1/2 pounder. fish were in anywhere from 24-32 feet of water and hitting mainly off colored hooks and leeches. also pick up a few on spinners and leeches.. hope this helps. sorry if im too specific

Was up towards the end of the gunflint last weekend. Walleyes are slow. Lakers are hammering. 40 - 50 fow. white/silver fuzzy jig on the bottom tipped with a chub/fathead.

good luck

Lindy

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
