Leaving for Gunflint in 5 hrs!!!


Recommended Posts

I am leaving for Gunflint Lake in 5 hrs. I will be fishing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Anybody know if anything is going on right now? Is it too late in the year for Lake Trout?

Thanks,

MikeT

MikeT,

Welcome to FM. I can't help you much on lake trout info on Gunflint Lake. I haven't heard any reports from there in a couple of weeks. If you get a chance, run over to Gunflint Pines and talk to Bob. He's a good guy and a great fisherman. He'll be able to help. Good luck.

I'll be fishing Sag tomorrow but strickly for walleyes.

Gunflint, Let us know how you did. My annual fall trip is just about one month away. Has the water started to cool yet? Overall, hows your fishing year been?

Please post your results here when you return. I have not fished gunflint in years and I am interested to know how you did.

Walleye fishing has picked up in general, last friday at sag excluded. Water temps are around 67 so it has started to cool down. Northerns are moving around a little more and the smallies are to say the least, bothersome. I'm tempted to start keeping smallies for bear bait. No bugs and cool nights and the birch leaves are turning yellow. It's getting to be that time of year.

Gunflint! I will be up Sept 30th- Oct.2nd staying at Hungry

Jack Lodge. for three day of no work grin.gif I hope to drown lots of minnows. if you are in the area stop and say hi. my e-mail is jnbnelson at charter dot net. Forest tells me that minnows with Jigs and a flasher work best for the walleyes. I can't wait as the summer has been filled with to much mad.gif work. six months of six day weeks. yuk.

Later Nels. Northlander if you have time off come on up.

I can ask Jerry if he has any deals.we can have a fall party. ANY ONE ELSE INTERESTED. I will have my wife with so I have to behave a little grin.gif

northernnels,

Forest is right about the jig and minnows for that time of year. The biggest problem is getting them locally. I would recommend picking up some on your way up. I like to fish Hungry Jack when my home lake is turning over. There are some big walleyes in there. The biggest problem is getting the bait past those pesky smallies. Although that time of year, the smallies should be shallower and the walleyes deeper.

I'm trying to put together a plan for fishing with Northlander and BD110. I just don't have any schedualing ideas yet. Except that weekends are usually out for me. But that depends on bookings. We are starting to fill up fast.

One thing to keep in mind is that there are no permits available for Sag in the last week of September, however there are no permits required for sag after October 1st.

Bring your long johns. It's already getting chilly in the evenings. And the young bulls are starting to get frisky, tearing up trees and snorting and grunting and making fools of themselves.

Gunflint- Hi I am coming up on my honeymoon here on Fri the 2nd to Mon. the 5th. Which resort do you guide out of again? I want to bring a canoe but was wondering two things.... Are canoes cheap to rent for a day and what would a half day guided trip run for the wife and I approximatly...if you have any openings??? I am just trying to weigh my options... She has never been to the BW so I want to go hiking and a little canoeing but if it is cheap I would just rent one rather than lug the canoe around...guessing we would only go out once or twice in the canoe!! Your help is always appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!!!

I don't think They like people to do business on the forums. (understandable) If you want to call Bearskin Lodge anyone will be happy to answer your questions.

      Had walleye last night with the nephews, gave me a chance to go out again this evening for a quick solo 6, water temp 55 degrees, fish 12-14 ft on jigs

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
    • Wheres_Walter
      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
