According to our fishing expert Jon Muhich at Buck’s Hardware, reports keep coming in indicating that people are getting fish.
Lake trout are still hitting out there and people are using a variety of bait. Greenwood reports action in 40 to 55 feet. Use jigs and spoons with ciscoes. Some were having decent luck with rainbow chubs too.
Daniels and Duncan were doing pretty well though the fish were small. Over at East and West Bearskin Lakes, some were down in 60 to 80 feet of water but fish were suspended just under the ice. Spoons and jigs with chubs and ciscoes. Gunflint was also giving up a few Lakers. Various depths from 60 to 100 feet though the fish were suspended.
At Thrasher and Musquash Lakes the splake were a little slow. Try from 4 to 12 feet in Thrasher with waxies. In Musquash try a little deeper, 12 to 18 feet also using waxies.
Really good reports of brookie action in about 15 feet of water in BWCAW lakes. Both Bat and Powell Lakes received special mention.
