Leaving early next week on a trip off the Gunflint. Normally, the mosquitoes are pretty much done by now in my experience. However, the Shagawa Lake web cam on the Ely webcam site seems to have a bunch of mosquitoes on the lens every day. Are the skeeters still pretty fierce? Thanks.

Did the Seagull to SAC to Big Sag 2 weeks ago and very few problems with mosquitoes. At night they would come out bu still not too bad.

They are still around at dusk, dawn, and when it is cloudy. Last biting was this past Monday before the afternoon rains moved in.

Did Ham to Poplar last week. Skeeters where pretty much a non issue until dark came out. By then I was ready to hit the sack anyways.

Thanks to everyone. Next week looks like it is on the chilly side (low-mid 40's at night, mid 50's up to very low 60', so I think things should be great, as usual. Could be hard nipple weather swimming though. Oh well.

I was up on Cross Bay / Frost last week and I think we saw 3 mosquitoes the whole trip.
