Spent a week up in the BWCA and three nights on some lake trout waters. With the late ice out we had to push our put in date back a few days, but we knew the fishing would still be hot. It did not disappoint.

Haven't been to the BWCAW since '05 and have never caught a laker.

Looks like an awesome trip.


Need to get back there in the next few years.

When were you up there? I'm contemplating a trip to the north shore soon and was wondering if the Lakers might still be shallow

Timing mostly. Unless they are coming shallow to hunt they are extremely difficult to get to, so the closer to ice out the better. Water temps were in the high 40s.

5/16-5/21. There was ice on our lake up until a few days prior, but its warming quickly up there.
