Just booked the family with Northstar Lake Resort for the first time ever. Will be up there July 1st-8th. Anyone out there have some favorite lures/presentations for Musky and Walleye on that lake around/during the end of June-first part of July? Do Smallies & Wally's hang in the same haunts on this lake? 4 months to shop lures and dream....thanks for any suggestions! --ERIK

Stayed at the same resort a few years back..nice, fishing wasn't that great but it was the middle of August so who knows. Did have one of the biggest Muskies I've ever seen trail my boat that happened to have a small northern on a stringer attached to the gunwale...weird..just happened to look down and it looked like a Trident sub following it.

Thanks Pete & Jason for the replies and the contact name at the resort. Jigs are a personal favorite. Sounds like if I happen to hook a dink northern that I should probably figure 8 it before landing!

Any other/further suggestions from the FM world over the next few months will be greatly appreciated!

ERIK,

Email me at cbranson at mn dot rr dot c o m

I went there with my family from 1998-2003. Great family resort especially for young kids. I always visit with Eric, Nancy, Dan or Carol at the Sportshow each year. I can give you a few tips. Be patient, it will take me a while to respond since I need to dig out some maps so I can use the names of the bays etc. I'm preparing to go up to Red and Winnie for March 10-12, so it will be after that weekend. You're going up about 2 weeks after we usually went but I think the patterns for the big fish will be similar. The bluegills will be off the beds by then though.

If you post a week or so before you go, i might have some info for you, at least on the muskies.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
