Seagull to Knife Lake Trip

Recommended Posts

thedeadsea

Has anyone made this trip? Just curious as the DNR lakefinder shows that the south end of Knife is only 6.9 miles from the Seagull landing. How are the portages?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

It took me around 11 hours to get from seagull to the west side of the south arm of knife. Portages are OK at best.

I would say 11 Hours is pretty much right. It was about four years ago I did that trip. There is some great fishing in South Arm of Knife. There is a campsite that sits right on the point just down the shore from the entry point after the portage. I little creek runs into the bay. Great campsite with exceptional fishing from shore early in the season. We just killed the walleyes and smallies with just a slip bobber and a leech. Fun times.

I think we went hard for about 8 hours the first day and stayed on Esther Lake.

Depending if you are doing a loop or not, but I know some of those portages had alot of blown down in them from the wind storm a few years back and if I remember fight the portage into Esther is a short but very straight up and straight down portage. You will have some beautiful canoeing ahead of you.

Best of Luck

Thanks guys,

If I put in at the Seagull landing and plan to make it to one of the first campsites on Ogiskemuncie, how long would you thing that would take?

Walleye, quick question also; you talked about taking 8 hours to get to Ester lake, the route I was looking at is Seagull-Alpine-Jasper-Kingfisher-Ogish-Annie-Jenny-Eddy-Knife. If you were taking Ester were you coming from Sag?

Thanks,

Steve

Dead Sea-

My bad. We did start on Sag and then did the loop all the way around to Seagull, but I am familiar with all of those lakes. You will have a fun route to go through. I would reccomend doing a little fishing on Alpine. I have heard it is a dynamite lake at times.

Best of luck
