Gunflint Report

4 posts in this topic

I spent the weekend fishing gunflint lake. Despite the wind, the weather was great! The fishing however, not so much. I caught 1 laker. 28 inches, 9 pounds. Biggest laker I have ever caught, so at least I had that going for me. According to everyone else the fishing was very slow. Was anyone else fishing the grand marais/ gunflint trail area this weekend? How'd you do?

I've fished the gunflint the last three weekends in a row. Two weeks ago was dead slow, not one single fish all weekend. the week before last was decent. took home our limits of fish and lost 3 - 4 times that many. This weekend was dead slow again. Although this weekend we were more focused on winter camping and having a good time as oppossed to really looking for the fish.

JB, I wouldn't be too upset about a day on the water where only one fish is caught if it is my biggest to date!!! Nice job, hopefully I can put just one laker in the boat this spring when I give it my first try. I don't care if it is a small one!!! cool.gif

Oh yeah, landing that fish was the funnest time I've ever had on the ice! This was my first time fishing for lakers through the ice so I didn't quite know what to expect. I figured we'd catch a few, but nothing over 5 pounds. I'll take one 9 pounder over a few small ones any day though! I don't know if I'll go back to gunflint next year, but I'm for sure fishing lakers through the ice ALOT more often!!!

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
