I'm new to this thread, so don't know if this is the appropriate spot for general bdub ?'s. Is there any public parking at the end of the Gunflint trail? I see that there are a couple of outfitters at the end, do they maybe just charge a parking fee ? We have been going through an outfitter in the Ely area the last couple of years, but have most of our own gear now and were looking do some exploring over that way. I know entry point permits go fast.

If you are going in on Big Sag, then yes there is a parking lot just up and around the corner from the entry point. It seems like a busy enough area, with the campground and boat landing, that vehicles don't get messed with too much. My truck was there from 9/28-10/12 last year, and had no troubles.

On a side note. You can do some really cool trips through the Quetico out of Sag. Just get an early start and hope the wind isn't too bad when you come out into the main lake.

I noticed part of Big Sag is open to outboards with hp limits. Is doing a base camp for fishing in this area with a boat and motor an option or are campsites strictly for paddlers only. We like both, would maybe do one of each if we make it up twice. I see a tow service is an option across the big water also.

To stay on Sag with boat/motor, you need an overnight motor permit. Or you can get a day motor permit and fish for the day. I've been doing it for years. You can camp on any campsite you want. Motors are forbidden past American Point. I just stay on the Minnesota side. There is no hp limit on the Canadien side. Lots of fun for sure. Junky...

Thanks for the responses. I love walleye fishing and I know Big Sag has a great reputation.

Would North be a better lake choice for walleye ? We got back into Little Gunflint with a small boat/motor a few years ago. I saw the portage track going into Little North,but didn't explore any further. I don't know how the lower water levels are effecting this route.

I would chose North over Sag for walleyes. The last few years have really been tough unless you like to catch smallies.

Ice Cold

I would agree with gunflint. I make a yearly trip to Sag and there has been a noticable difference for the last 3 or so years.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
