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)

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
