Mid June Fishing

8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am trying to plan a trip somewhere in the middle of June. I have never been there before, but will be with people who have. I'm just wondering where the really good fishing that I'm always hearing about up there is? I'm trying to base my trip on fishing, so any help would be highly appreciated!

Thank you!

Where exactly is "up there"?

Where in particular are you going? I've been going to grand marais every mid june since I was in diapers, and this year will be no exception. The fishing in that area is fantastic! The bass are very active and in the shallows, on a good day you can easily catch 100+, some quality size too. Lake trout are shallow too and easier to catch this time of year. Lot's of good walleye lakes right outside of grand marais that are full of 14 to 17 inch 'eyes.

Just to name a few...Devil Track has good/easy shorelines to troll for walleyes, might hit a nice northern or 2 also, good night fishing lake...Two Island and Crescent lakes are loaded with structure, sunken islands, points, rock bars, etc, lot's of walleyes with possibility of eyes over 24 inches...and if your after lakers, loon and/or gunflint lake has fast dropping shorelines that the lakers cruise, they're easy to catch with spoons or frozen cisco.

Let me know if you want more specific info. I'll shoot you an e-mail. But besides the fishing, the scenery is pretty good too, you'll see moose, deer, eagles, even wolves!

I learned a long time ago that if you want to know where the fish are biting ask a tourist. Most locals don't readily share to specific information. smirk.gif

Now that's an honest statement Gunflint. Either you pay your dues on the water to find um or you pay a guide to find um.

Vague question looking for detailed answers. Thats a hard to reply to. June is a super month with a lot going on.

What area and what species are you looking at.

Gunflint, that's pretty catchy...maybe we should go into the refrigerator magnet business...we could make a fortune selling that slogan at all those gift shops up there. grin.gif

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      It's pretty driveable out there.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
