Northerns

Recommended Posts

I will be coming up from Kansas City the last week in May for Walleye. We are staying at Deer Lake Northeast of Deer River. During the week my buddy and I would like to try some Northern fishing. What would the best lakes for Northern be and is there a good Northern guide available for that week? Thanks!

Northerns are always caught by guys walleye fishing, which means a jig/minnow combo that time of year. If you want to specifically target bigger gators you'll have to beef up your tackle. Red Lake would be the spot to go for a big one, also Wabana north of Grand Rapids would be a good bet. As for a guide you may want to try Jeff Sundin from Deer River, although he may be booked as it's prime walleye time.

Alot of the time we catch the Northern right with the walleyes that time of the year they are feeding all on the same minnows coming in on the flats. I know Charlie worrath with mnfishingpros just got a cancellation on one day that first week you can call him at218-246-2159 or e-mail me and I will get it to him. he will not stay open long

we have two groups in our area. the northern minnesota league of guides and mnfishingpros. We were all one group and the 5 on mnfishingpros dropped out and formed our own group.

So what do you have against the others? Do they provide bad service? Poor ethics? Why did you split?

They are like a bunch of small kids fighting over a toy. No, to be honest, both groups have some really good guides in them. There are a couple of exceptions to the rule as Jason knows. You won't be sorry with Sundin. Very good guide

I've been going to Winnie for 10+ years, I have used several guides in the area and the Only one that has stood the test of time is Boser.

Now with that said I guess you might say I'm biased but no, I'm not! I'm just honest when it comes to services, I pay for service and if I don't get it I look elsewhere. Keep that in mind when you hire a guide, there selling a service,if it is not up to your standard let them know how you feel. They will either make it right or they won't in which case you look else where. Guides are people just like you and I and not all personalities mesh. Look for a guide that you can get along with, your experiance will be memorable if you do. RIGHT BOSER!? grin.gif

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.
