Due to an out-of-state trip that fell through, I have a week off in mid-August, still have the vacation time and the wife is on board with a fishing trip for a good portion of the week. Question is where to go? Where is some good fishing (mainly walleye) this time of year? How's Sag / Seagull this time of year? I haven't seen any updates lately. I can go anywhere just need to decide where. Haven't been to Sag in quite a few years, never been to Rainy.

So I have to pick a destination for the week of 8/15, I'm leaning toward the gunflint or VNP but I'm open to suggestion, any advise on where the actions hot?

Without a doubt I would hit Rainy Lake that time of year.

Thanks NL, heading to Kettle Falls Inn. Maybe take a whack on the big pond on the way back if the weather is cooperating.

Kind of last minute post, but anyone know any of the lakes in this area to chase eye's other than Seagull? Looks like some of the other bigger water like Gillis, Little Sag, Gabimichigami don't have walleye.

Leaving tonight...but thought I would ask anyways. It was a last minute trip.

If I understand the regs correctly you can't fish lakers in the summer in the BWCA?

That would be news to me.

Looks like your already gone but if not what is your entry point?

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
