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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
