Anyone fish Hungry Jack lake?

8 posts in this topic

The girlfriend and I are going to go camping/fishing up at hungry jack lodge and plan on fishing the lake, anyone ever fished this lake, and provide me some areas, what I will expect. We will be up there memorial day weekend.

If you like smallies you're in for a treat.There's big walleyes in there too but they can be hard to get to because of the smallies. Forest (the owner) at Hungry Jack knows the lake and will give you good advice.

Try walleye fishing off thier dock in the evenings, there are some big waleyes in there. I lost my biggest one there during memorial weekend several years ago. Also lots of smallies.

I haven't been there in 10+ years, planning on hitting it this year if the water on gunflint is too rough. Has the lake trout reintroduction produced anything yet? The DNR lake finder wasn't too helpful on it.

We've had a couple of major cold fronts come through this past week. Things have slowed to a crawl. It's warming up today though so things may change. Our lake went from surface temps of 59 to 52.5

I have not been uo there in the summer, but I see from your avatar that you're a sled-head. Each winter a group of us head up the Hungry Jack Lodge for some great trail riding and laker ice fishing. If you have not been there in the winter I would give it a try. It's my favorite trip each year. You may be able to find some lakers in Moss this time of year. I have heard that Leo lake can also be good rainbows or browns. The others are right about the smallie rep that the lake has. Forest should be able to put you on the fish. Wish I was headed there too this weekend. Good luck!!

I used to fish that lake with my family back in the late 70's early 80's. Our favorite spots for smallies was a bay just below Honeymoon bluff. as far as walleye go there is a reef in front of honeymoon bluff about a 1/2 mile or so. look at a map to find it. Lots of good memories.

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.
