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.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      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.
