Perent Lake vs Alpine Lake

3 posts in this topic

I am planning a short BWCA trip 1st part of June. I usually go to Alpine via Seagull but am considereing Perent Lake this year via #36 Hog Creek entry point. (I havent done anythig too strenuous for a few years) How would the two compare for a BWCA experience for a couple of first timers into the BWCA? How is the fising? (Walleyes, bass, Northern pike)? Perent Lake is closer to our cabin north of Two Harbors and our time is somewhat limited. Thanks for any information.

MNfisher; I've been all over Seagull back when it had the 9.9 limit (lakewide) but we never made the trek into Alpine...always meant to, heard it's an easy enough portage and a cool lake. I've been into Perent once, cool entry down Hog creek, I'd be just a little worried this year with the low water, I remember we had to walk the canoes a couple times then. Nothing tough tho'. Good fishing lake, walleyes were on the small side, but there were plenty of them. Haven't been back in 7 or 8 years.

Thanks for the info Traveler. The forest ranger at Tofte said that yes, the water may be quite low in Hog Creek. Alpine is an interesting lake to fish and spend time on. I haven't been real lucky with walleye, but I've seen some big ones caught. Hammered the smallmouth on Red Rock lake in June though one time. Thanks again.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
