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

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
