June-Gunflint Lake


Recommended Posts

What can I expect fishing this lake in the summer? Fishing for walleye, smallmouth, and pike.

I'm not going to be much help for eyes, pike and smb there.

In June your probably going to eliminate much of the South shore and target current areas and broken shorelines that don't break into deep water fast. East and Westerly ends of the lake hold such areas.

going to be on a trip up there and have been researching some lakes and a few others caught my eye, how about, Poplar, Sea Gull, Hungry Jack, and Aspen. Aspen was the one that really caught my eye.

I'm going from memory here but Poplar lake is a good lake but lots lower unit eating structure and a challenging lake to learn.

Seagull is another good lake but restricted to 10 hp for a portion and no hp on the majority. Hungry Jack has some big walleyes but it's a clear lake and it's difficult to get your presentation past the big smallies. Aspen can be fun if you're into multi species. It's fairly shallow with a trench in the middle.

If your interested in big walleyes check into Sag or North that time of year.

It requires getting your feet wet for a short distance but there should be enough water in the creek in June to get in there.

Gunflint will be slow action, but some nice lakers. If you want some nice pike go to loon lake...poplar has decent pike and walleye fishing...the scenery is better than the fishing though. Hungry jack is the best overall...nice eyes, pike, and bass, even a few sunnies. On a good day you can easily catch over 100 fish!

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
