There is something almost mystical about North Shore ice fishing. The frozen lakes may seem quiet in winter, but underneath that ice, the water is teeming with the best fish in the Northland: lake trout, rainbow trout, walleye, northern pike and panfish.
Your Stone Harbor Wilderness ice fishing tour starts when you assemble at 9:00 a.m. (they are located on 275 feet from the Superior Inn) to get geared up. Then your guide takes you to one of the Gunflint Trail’s inland lakes where you trek across the ice until you find the best fishing hole. (We can’t give away all of our secrets, but you can bet that your guide has been spending plenty of time looking for where the fish are biting.) We can say that due to normally unfavorable conditions, we usually do not offer ice fishing on Lake Superior itself.
There’s no need to worry about the cold Minnesota wind because your guide brings along a portable ice house, heater, lunch and warm beverages. That means you’ll have plenty of time to relax and enjoy a day out on the ice.

Grand Marais & North Shore Winter Activities
With an average of 120 inches of snow per year, you would expect Grand Marais & North Shore Winter Activities to include just about everything you could want to do on this slippery white stuff! You'd be right, and you can enjoy it on the 400 km of groomed cross-country ski trails (the biggest such network in North America), 450 miles of snowmobile trails, and 1,000 acres of downhill skiing and snowboarding.
The ancient Sawtooth Mountains rise 1088 feet above the coast of Lake Superior – topography, unlike any other Midwest locale. And that brings more of what you want in a ski trip – the highest mountains, the most snow, and the breathtaking beauty of Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountains. Lutsen Mountains offers 95 sweeping runs over four mountains with a lift-serviced vertical rise more than double that of other regional resorts. Lutsen offers more terrain – and terrain features – than any other Midwest destination. In addition to miles of backcountry trails filled with timber features, cliff drops and off-piste adventure, Lutsen Progression Parks offer jibs and jumps on all four mountains covering more terrain and offering the longest slopestyle run in Mid-America.
