GRAND MARAIS AREA
Our fishing expert, Jon Muhich of Buck’s Hardware, says if we’re talkin’ fishin’ we’re talkin’ trout.
LAKE TROUT action has been picking up. Saganaga seems to be giving up trout at the 32 to 38 foot range. A spoon and minnow was the lure of choice. Also large buckshot lures tipped with a minnow.
Some of the smaller trout lakes were giving up fish much shallower. Kemo Lake was getting hits at 10 feet with a spoon and minnow. Jigging Rapalas were also doing the trick. Mayhew Lake was reporting some good action in 30 to 40 feet with spoons and Swedish Pimples tipped with minnows.
SPLAKE were hitting in Trestle Pine in about 16 to 23 feet of water with an ice jig and waxie. RAINBOWS were a little shallower, in 10 to 16 feet of water. Esther Lake was giving up a few rainbows and even a couple of splake in 15 feet or so using ice jigs and waxies.
One last lake to suggest might be Ram where we heard the rainbows were doing pretty good in about 16 to 20 feet, but no word on Lakers.
