Hey Mark. It would be pretty hard to get together on this trip, unless of coarse you happen to be on Sag at the time. My Wife and I are planning a few other trips on the trail this summer, and I wouldn't mind hiring you for a day, as we take our trailer up and can't tow the boat. Would love to get together with ya then???? How far in advance would a person need to book with ya? And what lakes do you offer to fish? This would be fun. Junky.....

I don't like to mention my business on the net because I'm about as busy as I want to be. Besides I don't charge fellow FMers if I can get away for a few hours of pre-fishing. wink.gif Northalnder has my email address, if you can get it from him we can probably work something out.

Hey Gunflint, the last time I talked with you last fall, you had said something about maybe trying a different lake in 06 for a better chance at a big fish? I think were alike as we always end up on Sag. I just like being out on that lake.Are the permits for sag always gone or just during the better times? I havent fished it before Oct 1st for many years.

Panhead,

It's good to hear from you again. Your spot on EB really heated up towards the end of october. Looks like this year will be different though with the one fish over 20 rule. I didn't catch a fish under 20 most of October last year and they're just getting bigger.

It seems to me that sag permits can be had most of the summer but you just never know. No word on the FS lawsuit yet. This year I reserved a permit for every other week from the end of May through September.

we got a couple of young guys working here now that think they're walleye experts wink.gif but they say that they're going to trap minnows this summer. We'll see how that goes.

If the water is high enough I want to try to get to North a couple of times. I know that there are big dogs in that lake. Good to hear from you again, see you this fall. gunflint

gunflint,

Many years ago (@10) i camped at gunflint pines a couple times and went into little gun, and then pulled my boat up into little north/north. At the time i had a 14'/20hp and it was very easy to get thru. Am i nuts ("nutser?") to think about considering to try and pull a 17'/90hp boat thru the channel? You know how time kinda plays tricks on your memory, and you convice yourself that it wouldnt be toooo bad? I was looking at the mid summer time frame, thought I'd maybe do a weekend trolling for trout in Gunflint and try to pull up into North for eye's and trout for a day.

If your on the floor laughing at my proposal as you read this, that might be all the response that i need grin.gif

OOpppps just saw that north/little north are BW waters, guess that rules that brainstorm out. Probably saved myself a week in traction grin.gifgrin.gif

Or is it, i'm a little confused now. I dont remember having to get a permit when i went into north the last time and the line looks like it goes along the south shoreline of North, not along the border. Hmmmmmmm?

I believe that the shore is the line for the BDUB. If I wanted to get a 90 horse into North I think I would wind it up in Little North and shoot the rapids at about 40 mph. shocked.gif Be sure to lift the prop. grin.gif

Just cruising thru the posts getting ready for our annual trip to Gunflint in a couple weeks and saw your note. Brought a smile remembering several years ago when a friend and I tried doing the run one summer with his new boat (16' w/ 25hp). A beaver dam slowed us bit and gave his new prop it's first dings, but it was fun...got stuck half way across the dam cause he didn't get on it enough (you know...new boat hesitancy). We eventually got thru after getting a little wet. 90hp and givin it heck would have done the trick, but prop would have been at risk. Wish you luck!

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      i think he moved it down south of remer..........closer to his recliner by big rice lake!!!!!!!!🤣🤗

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
