Northeast Minnesota Fishing Report – March 6th, 2014
Anglers have started walking on Lake Superior at Brighten Beach and the 21st Avenue Parking area and catching lake trout. These fish are suspended over 50 to 120 feet of water and are hitting spoons, smelt, or chubs. You’ll also catch good-sized herring on waxworms in these areas. There’s some evening crappie action with glow jigs and minnows in 12 to 14 feet of water on Caribou Lake and Fish Lake.

GRAND MARAIS AREA
Minnows are producing lake trout down about 50 to 55 feet and rainbow trout in 15 feet at Trout Lake. Ciscoes are the ticket for lake trout at 45 feet on Pine Lake and 45 to 55 feet at Lake Saganaga. Waxworms and small jigs are turning splake in eight feet at Musquash Lake, 12 to 15 feet at Tressel Pine Lake, and six to 10 feet at Kemo Lake.

PINE CITY AREA
The deeper basin areas of Lake Pokegama and Cross Lake are giving up sunfish. Tungsten jigs or small spoons tipped with Eurolarvae are producing bigger fish. Crappies also can be had in these areas during low-light periods, but they don’t seemed to be as schooled up at this point.
