Best Bait now

6 posts in this topic

I am heading up this weekend with the family and just wanted to know if I need to waste my time trying to bring minnows or if I am better off with leeches & crawlers? I will be staying on and fishing mostly on Kab.

At this time of the year I will have all 3 in the boat. But once it is past =July 4 I will still have all 3 in the boat. now once it gets to August I then will only use all three...see the pattern here? Some times I like burgers sometimes I like weenies and sometimes I like pizza. I can only believe that fish may like a change once in a while. Also saugers tend to bite better on minnows. JMHO.

I'll be heading up this weekend and from what I've been hearing crawlers seems to be the ticket. But as was mentioned, I'll be bringing all three. You never know what the fish will want. Good luck to everyone! I hope to report good things when I get back. grin.gif

Fished the lakes from 6/15-6/21 and had great results on both leeches and crawlers. The walleyes would let us know what they preferred rather quickly. When trolling crankbaits we caught walleye,northern, and many small sauger in that 8-12" range. Those sauger were agressive on baits that were almost as big as them! Should be a good year class of "keeper" size sauger next year. Saw a crestliner from Wisconsin hit a rock shelf near the Namakan narrows. Sounded not too good but they kept going.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
