BWCA Laker Fishing

4 posts in this topic

I am taking my first trip to the boundary waters this spring. I will be arriving on may 15th and would love to spend alot of time getting my first few lakers hopefully. I am going in at entry 52 which is said to have some great laker fishing. I will be on French L, Peter Lake, Gabimichigami L, Little Saganaga L and Tuscarora lake(to name a few...). If anyone has fished these or just has general BWCA laker tips i would appreciate the help!!!

Entry point # 52 is closed until further notice because of the Ham Lake fire. I would contact the Gunflint Ranger District when your time comes close. 218-387-1750

If you can't get in on the Grand Marais side because of the fire, try Ely. I have gone in on Snowbank and Moose Lake. No lakers there, but if you are willing to paddle a bit, Kekekabic and Knife are great laker lakes. If you get to Kekekabic, make sure to spend a day on Little Kek. It's a tiny lake, no people and a LOT of lakers.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
