Yes. We used snomoblie with no problem. Another party had been in and the trail was packed.

Are you guys saying that there is snow to trail ride on the North shore? Does anyone in the Snowmobile thread know this? shocked

Don't know about the north shore. Mid gunflint trail has approx 9'' of snow.

Just got an e mail from a friend on the Gunflint.

Cross country skiing is great, snowmobiling sucks with the trails being very bumpy even though the groomer has been through them.

We lost some snow on the Gunflint Trail yesterday with the temperature in the 40's but not too much. There's still 8-10" in the woods and cross-country ski trails on the Gunflint are good.

Went ice fishing last weekend in the BWCA and there was some snow on the lake, a little slush but yesterday took care of that.

We're getting snow today, hoping for lots.

The north shore and Grand Marais have very little snow and the snowmobile trails are not in any condition to ride on, yet.

Our fingers are crossed!

      Yesterday was the first time I have noticed all of the dead smaller minnows floating around in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. Friend of mine who knows the lake as well as anyone indicated it may be perch minnows choking on spiny water fleas. If so, that's a bit disconcerting.....Can anyone confirm? Slow for me mid to late afternoon yesterday in the area fishing for walleyes..

      I'm not going to say it.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
