This looks awesome, your kids are about the same age as mine.  I’m really excited to show them the north woods next week, hopefully a few fish cooperate too!

Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

 That middle picture looks like a decent size bluegill. 

 

When my kids were little like that, it was the bluegills that kept them interested in fishing

Ya, my little guy can sit on a dock for hours and fish for bluegill.....  pretty awesome as I know I did the same.  We’d fill up a kiddie pool with fish on the dock and dump em back in the lake when we were done..... entertaining for the dog too, he’d try and catch the fish in the pool while we were fishing.

We will definitely hit up a hike or two, the honeymoon trail thing is right by the campground and the magnetic rock one looks cool, gonna get the kids compasses and check that out if we have time.  My daughter likes to fish but she’d rather combine it with exploring, so some hiking will be in our plans.... wish I had more time off, but there’s always next time up there.

Hey all, i am heading up to this area on the 6th for a week. Have never fished this area any suggestions or tips would be appreciated. bringing the camper and the boat. I would like to try to catch some lakers or even get out on superior for some salmon if the weather is good and the lake behaves. I have down riggers that came with the boat but have never used them, thought it is about time to try something new!

JB laid it out nicely in the other “gunflint camping and fishing” thread for me, though I was looking for more the smallmouth angle.  But it sounds like west bearskin has some lakers, greenwood too, and I’ve caught them in saganaga with downriggers.  If you’re looking for a combo platter of big lake feel, gunflint solitude and downrigger fun, sag is not a bad option.  It is a drive to the end of the trail then a 20 minute boat ride to get to laker water, but it is cool.  Bigger water so tougher to find fish, but they are in there.

      July for me.   I have had a couple openers that were pretty thin soup as well.

      Who writes this stuff? Neo nicitonoids are insecticides, not herbicides so far as I know.

      Was nice to hear that the Croix upstream of Stillwater was pretty much normal level, so I fished out of Osceola yesterday. Was an absolute beautiful day to be out! Didn’t get as hot as expected, nice and cloudy, and a nice wind blowing upstream. For the first time in history, I didn’t cast a twister tail on the river. For some reason I was deadset on jointed rapalas and clacking raps. Only caught 1 smallie, 1 walleye, and 1 pike. Lost about 5 fish, 1 of which I suspect was a turtle. Overall experience resulted in one of my better outings of the season!

      Always have had struggles in July.  Lots of forage to keep them fish full this time of year.

      You can expect excellant walleye fishing with little competition. Don't be afraid to take a trip over to Elephant lake to chase some slab crappies as well. The feed bag should be on.

      Does anyone know of any good shore fishing spots on the Minnesota River in Carver. Not Carver County, but the city of Carver. The river is pretty high right now, so I don't know if that affects anything. I know this one little ledge you can go to once you are inside the campground, and I have seen evidence of people fishing these, given some got a lure stuck to a log in the water with line still attached. And, what kind of lures should I be using. I wanna go for anything, except maybe catfish or muskies, because I don't have the gear for those. I did see a post the other day about shore fishing for White Bass on the Minnesota in Mankato, so would something like that be good for me? I guess my one question would be, let's say I am trying to jig with a soft plastic, how do I "avoid" the current? Thanks for any tips anyone can give me! If not in Carver, than in the nearby area, like Chaska, Jordan, etc.
