Myself, my dad and my brother are heading up to Pine Lake, Caribou Lake, Clearwater Lake, Mountain Lake and Moose Lake the second week of July through entry point #68. This will be our first trip to the Boundary Waters so I was hoping you all could provide me with some fishing tips about the area, things to bring, campsite advice etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks and enjoy the fishing!
Welcome, Fishing is good on all those lakes. A word of caution for Pine Lake start early and get to the west end of the lake of the wind will be comming out of the west, when the winds get blowing down the length of Pine you will wish you were at a camp site. I've seen 4 ft waves on pine.
It's not the speed, but the grace in which you arrive.
Thanks for all of the advice! I have my rapalas, jigs, and mepps spinners packed that have been successful in past camping trips in MN, WI, and Canada. Does anyone know if its worth making a trip over to West Pike or East Pike for the day?
Thanks again for all of the help...we'll be sure to get across Pine lake as early in the morning as possible!
