Glenn Merrick of Gary New Duluth and I spent Monday on an extended day trip up the Gunflint Trail beyond Grand Marais to do some lake trout fishing. Glenn does a trip like this nearly every year in March. This time, we were headed for a lake he had fished before. Trouble was, new growth of the forest has all but obliterated any sign of the final portage into this lake.
