With patience, Pokegama can be darn good. If you have specific questions, you can e-mail me at info@tightlinesguiding.com.

Pokegama and wabana are both decent lakes for walleye tthey are alittle more difficult to fish because of the water clarity, they are both clear lakes. the nice thing about both these lakes is the diversity of fish you catch on these two bodies of water walleye,bass, northern and perch.

some other smaller lakes around our area are Sand, bowstring, jessie and cutfoot are all good lakes to fish for walleye. you can check out our web page on wwwmnfishingpros.com and go to lakes and resorts to get whatever you need. you can also e-mail me for any other additional info you need

My wife, daughter's, and I love going out for a day on the Wabana/Bluewater/Trout lake chain. Granted with the low water, it maybe diffcult/impossible to access Bluewater or Trout from Wabana. If you get on Trout, about half way up the lake on the west side you will see the Joyce Estate buildings. It's a very neat spot to stop and stretch and look around. Tons of panfish in Wabana and the Trout lakes as well as both species of bass. What we usually do is picnic/swim during the day and in the evening set up on a sunken island or under water point on Wabana and slip bobber fish with leeches. You never know what you'll get....walleyes, sm lm bass, bluegills, even the occassional northern. There are lake trout and splake in the Trout lakes and laker's in Bluewater, but it's hard to catch them. I've never strictly targeted 'eyes on Wabana but know other guys who do pretty good in June out there.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
