Gunflint Trail Condtions?

2 posts in this topic

Hey gunflint, the wife says shes already sick of me, been home almost a week now, so what are the conditions on the trail now? Water temps must be in mid 40s or so now. Id like to but its a nine hour ride from here in se. wi.Hopefully, Ill see ya in May, Northlander gave me a crash coarse on laker fishing and so Ill see what I can remember about that for next spring in addtion to the eyes.Northlander, I fished the same small lake you and I spent that am on and caught a handfull but they were all small. Jake,my lab, missed ya or should I say missed the Oreos.Nice to meet you and thanks for putting up with all my questions and talking in general. I had been camping by myself, except for Jake, for a couple of weeks and was getting sick of talking to myself.Next fall, ill be up that way again and if your interested maybe we and perhaps others can spend a couple days on Sag. Gunflint will know when Im up his way. Sooner or later your going to get up there and find a decent bite. I extended my camping trip to 22 days, left the trail as the winter like weather was predicted.That cold shot of weather even gave Milwaukee its first measurable snow. Really early for this far south. Have a safe ice season.Hope our pathes cross again.

Water temp this afternoon was 47. We lost 5 days of fishing during the last strech of bad weather due to winds in the 25 to 40 mph range. The walleyes are schooling up tight to steep structure now and are getting fat and sluggish. I'd like at least 2 days of nice weather before ice up but that's asking alot this time of year. The end is near for 2006. We'll see you in the spring panhead.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
