Reports from Department of Natural Resources conservation officers today indicated the lake trout fishing was a little slow on Saturday, when the season opened outside the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. But guide Steve Foss of Ely had a good day on Burntside Lake.
“Fished a new spot that isn’t accurately marked on any of the maps, a spot I mapped out this summer during open water,: Steve wrote in a Facebook post. “Caught six fish from 3 to 7 pounds, and a buddy came over and fished the spot with me this afternoon (Saturday) and caught one as well.”
Foss said the day brought high winds and temperatures falling to 6 degrees.
