The last two years were so slow, it sucked. I'm not even sure I'm going to hit it at all this year for lakers and its only 15 minutes from my house. I used to drive 3 hours to fish it and now that I live here it seemed to go in the crapper (lakers at least).

If you want to fish lakers I would point your truck north and either go to Ely or the Gunflint Trail. Better yet if time/money will allow further to Canada. Trout Lake seems to be pretty slow these days.

Since graduating college, myself and a few buddies plan an annual trout weekend. Last year we hit Big Trout. We didn't fish it correctly (Definition = we didn't spread out enough.)

We drilled a ton of holes, and fished various depths. We did however manage to catch one trout. It was a 25.5 incher. We are going to hit it again this year in a couple weekends to see if we can improve our luck. I know there are a lot of better lakes way North, but this lake will keep our tradition alive and we don't have to travel far from home.

Last year we drove trucks out, and with all this cold weather, I am sure that the lake has decent ice. I have heard from others however that Trout Lake is known to have sketchy ice all season due to it's depth, so we will be ready to head out with the wheelers and sleds if things don't look right.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
