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

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
