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.
