Do it: Canoe country lake trout
Now, in the first couple of weeks after ice-out, lake trout can be readily caught in inland lakes in shallow water. Many of those lakes are in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, particularly along the Gunflint Trail north of Grand Marais and out of Ely. Check with local bait shops for information on lakes and fishing techniques.
