The main fishing season opens in mid May for walleye,
smallmouth bass and lake trout. The northern pike season is
open year around. It is fun to get out right at the beginning of
the season when spring is bursting out in the forest with the
fresh smells, new leaves, migrating birds, and the calling loons
telling us they are back for the summer.
The walleye have just finished spawning and are starting
to school up in the warm bays, the smallmouth bass are near
the surface (pre-spawning here in the northwoods) and the
lake trout are along the rocky shores in shallow water (the
lake trout season will be open in Minnesota only, as the
Canadian season does not open until later). Northern pike
are in their usual haunts in the weedy bays and around the
rivers. In addition to good sized walleye, it is worth noting
that Gunflint is a native lake trout lake and most of them are
running 3 to 10#.
