I am heading up to Caribou lake this weekend for a church/family weekend at C.O.P. Any tips on what/where to keep young ones busy and occupied. What depths would the walleye be at? Thanks

Well the bass will keep the kids busy. I was up there 2 weeks ago so the bass might be in different locations now, but when I was there they were all around the docks and along the shallows. But stay close to docks and fallen trees and you'll nail the bass, and the kids will be happy. The walleyes were tight lipped though, I seriously couldn't buy a bite.

Thanks JB, The pike were agressive and the bass were off the shore out on the rocks. Nice weekend!!! Walleye were still tight lipped.

Glad to hear you had fun. It usually is a pretty good pike lake too, they were a little tight lipped also while I was there. Good to see they were cooperating for you though.

This might be a dumb question, but by "C.O.P." do you mean the landing on the west side of the lake?

C.O.P. (I don't remember what it stands for) I believe is a christian group type campground. So yeah, it's not the public access your refering to.

By COP he is referring to Cathedral of the Pines. The mayflys are finally all done hatching up there and I know I had a tough walleye bite up there in the first couple weeks of june. I will be making my way up to Caribou tomorrow for four days. Im sure we will get into a few of them.

For those of you scratching your heads, this thread is talking about the Caribou lake outside of Lutsen, not the Caribou outside of Duluth...as that is where Cathedral of the Pines is located.

Thanks Bobby, this makes way more sense now. I always forget there are two Caribou Lakes people talk about in this section.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
