The girlfriend and I are going to go camping/fishing up at hungry jack lodge and plan on fishing the lake, anyone ever fished this lake, and provide me some areas, what I will expect. We will be up there memorial day weekend.

If you like smallies you're in for a treat.There's big walleyes in there too but they can be hard to get to because of the smallies. Forest (the owner) at Hungry Jack knows the lake and will give you good advice.

Try walleye fishing off thier dock in the evenings, there are some big waleyes in there. I lost my biggest one there during memorial weekend several years ago. Also lots of smallies.

I haven't been there in 10+ years, planning on hitting it this year if the water on gunflint is too rough. Has the lake trout reintroduction produced anything yet? The DNR lake finder wasn't too helpful on it.

We've had a couple of major cold fronts come through this past week. Things have slowed to a crawl. It's warming up today though so things may change. Our lake went from surface temps of 59 to 52.5

I have not been uo there in the summer, but I see from your avatar that you're a sled-head. Each winter a group of us head up the Hungry Jack Lodge for some great trail riding and laker ice fishing. If you have not been there in the winter I would give it a try. It's my favorite trip each year. You may be able to find some lakers in Moss this time of year. I have heard that Leo lake can also be good rainbows or browns. The others are right about the smallie rep that the lake has. Forest should be able to put you on the fish. Wish I was headed there too this weekend. Good luck!!

I used to fish that lake with my family back in the late 70's early 80's. Our favorite spots for smallies was a bay just below Honeymoon bluff. as far as walleye go there is a reef in front of honeymoon bluff about a 1/2 mile or so. look at a map to find it. Lots of good memories.

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
