Grand Marais Area

5 posts in this topic

Looking to make a june/july trip looking for info. We use to stay on caribou lake in a cabin years ago but I cant seem to find any info. Any ideas as far as lakes, cabins, resorts, or even camping? Looking for eyes and maybe some lakers and smallies. Any info would be great being I am not to familiar with the area

Google Gunflint Trail Resorts. You'll find just about every Resort there is on the trail. Most have cabins and some offer camping. Theres a few Forest Service campgrounds on the trail, Northern Light lake, Iron Lake, Kimball Lake, East Bearskin and Flour Lake.

Is the Grand Marais area good this time of year or at ice out, for shore fishing Lake Superior? Can a person fish for loopers this much further north.

Thanks

I've never shore fished up there this time of year but I'll bet you might get into some cohos.

Loopers are stocked on the western end of Superior so you most likely wouldn't find any up there at any time of year.

Once we get closer to the Steelhead run you will find them in front of the river mouths up there.

June is the best time of year to fish up there. Two Island or Crescent lake are the best lakes to camp on, you'll catch lots of nice smallies and eater size walleyes. Greenwood is a really good lake for lakers and BIG brook trout, but there are no accomodations there...Loon lake lodge is good place or somewhere on trails end

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
