Greenwood or Loon Lakes' Lakers?

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

Has anyone tried fishing either of these lakes yet this winter...or any area lakes (except gunflint)? How are the ice conditions now?

Fished Greenwood last Friday & Saturday. Only 6 fish landed with 4 more lost, one being a big boy that straightened my hook. The bite started late AM then petered out till last hour before dark. Plain hooks with shiners and a Northland airplane jig were the hitters.

Don't think you'll get many replies on Loon lake.

You can try calling the Lodge for an ice report.

KO, how was the ice on Greenwood?

Mimic Shiner and I fished Loon two weeks ago and got three lakers for 5 guys in an afternoon. One of which was about 4 pounds. Fairly easy walking out there and nice solid ice. There was some patchy slush in areas.

Yeah, I just threw loon lake in for s**t's & giggles. I was mostly interested in greenwood reports and ice conditions. Any tullibees coming out of there?

Just looking for something that may change my mind about going to burntside/snowbank in march. Me and my family LOVE grand marais alot! Went to gunflint last march and landed a 9 pounder...good times! I picked burntside for this year because of affordability and potential fast action. But I've always been known to change my plans at the last minute. ;\)

Good ice. Snow hard and wind swept for the most part so a 4-wheeler can traverse it.

No vehicle traffic (trucks or suv's) though I suppose? I don't have a wheeler or atv. No big deal though, there's plenty of structure well within walking distance.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
