Gunflint trail leaves and Fish report for 10/2-10/3

2 posts in this topic

Well I took a trip up to see fellow FMer Gunflint on the trail. Headed up on Mon morning and the colors were in post peak most of the way. A lot of leaves falling the more north I got. Still enough on trees to keep it colorfull but with the rain we got today the leaves wont last long up there.

Fishing was slow both days for us but with the weather and company being great Mon how could a guy not enjoy himself.

I also had the privelege of meeting another Fmer from Milwaukee area. Ken is his name and I believe he goes by Panhandle on FM. I spent this am with Ken and we BSed away the morning in his boat on a small lake he had done well on the day before. As usual though, when Northlander hits the trail either poor fishing, weather or both usually follows frown.gif and we only caught a few small eyes and a snakey northern. Ken it was a honor to fish with a guy who has the same passion for the eyes as I do. See ya next time up or next season. E-mail me if ya ever want to BS.

Mark, (Gunflint) I enjoyed the time in the boat with ya and getting up to that beautiful part of the state. Thanks for all the goodies and the warm roof. I hope to get up there again before snow flies.

For those who havent been up the Gunflint Trail in the Fall its a must do. We saw Moose, deer a fox and lots of birds. Like I said earlier the leaves alone are worth the trip but not for very long this year. Some very nice eating places and resorts for those who want to make it a weekend trip.

I highly suggest Bearskin Lodge on East Bearskin Lake. Mark makes sure everyone has what they need and keeps the guests as happy as any 1 man can. He isnt a bad guide/fisherman either. wink.gif

If anyone is interested in heading that way this month and camping out in the campground give me a holler I may be able to talk myself into another trip up the trail. grin.gif

Northlander,

I'm glad to hear that you had a good time. As you know I left you a message on your cell last week with a couple of days at the end of the month. Let me know if that time might work for you. It should be good and cold by then but hopefully not to bad. My camper has already been place at the cabin for Deer season. So not much hope for an overnighter at this point.

I'm heading out with Pout-slayer later this morning and I'll be heading out with LoonaSea tomorrow to Yellow lake. Give me a call when you get a chance and we can take a look at some dates.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

      when i fish for pike or muskie i use 40-50lb braid and an 80# fluoro leader about 12" that I make myself...never had a bite-off and have reused leaders over and over again...oh, and have caught plenty with this set up

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
