If you could only bring two luers?

9 posts in this topic

I am heading up over the week of the forth and I will be staying on the Canadian side of the lake so I can not bring and live bait. I am looking for good artificials, shad raps and floater have worked well in the past, buzz baits can be fun to. This year I am thinking of using some plastics may be senkos, but not sure of color or size. One of my issues is getting the bait down deep because the water temp is going to be up and I am sure I will mark a lot of fish at 30-40 feet.

When I was there for Memorial Day they were hitting on natural colored plugs that were diving about 12-14 feet over points.

I AM PARTIAL TO JIGS AND TWISTY TAILS; THEY CATCH DARN NEAR EVERYTHING. THE OTHER WOULD BE SOME SORT OF STICK BAIT IN THE 3 TO 4" SIZE.

JUST CURIOUS, WHY CANT YOU TAKE CRAWLERS PACKED IN BEDDING WITH YOU ACROSS THE BORDER?

I did call the Canadians again today and I was told you can bring worms, but that is it. Any one now if there is a resort or anything that I can reach from namakan that sells minnows or leeches.

Crawdad Shad Rap and a Crawdad Shad Rap. I call it the Lucky Luciano. For some reason the walleyes love that lure. It has outdone any lure I have used upthere. When ever we go fishing upthere I make sure I have 4 of them and I charge my friends $10 if they loose theirs and have to borrow one.

The Ontario "Sand Point Lodge" on Sand Point Lake sells a variety of minnows. It is located central Sand Point Lake at the entrance of Clearwater Bay. If you buy minnows there they give you a receipt that covers you having the live bait for the day. Any other information call SPL @ 218-290-6854.

You can get any lure you wish to about 100 feet down(depending on boat speed)with 2to3 ounces of weight and a three-way swivel.It's kind of bulky and heavy but it does catch deep eyes and it's effective for Lakers too.Hope this helps some.........good luck and don't fall in.c63 grin.gif

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.
