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.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
