At that time, they will probably be doing all 3. Jigging the reefs should be a good bet. 12 Mile, 2 humps north of 12, 16, Tower, Gull Rock, Little Gull Rock, etc. Some days they like a colored jig and other days they want a plain lindy or maybe even something pulled behind a bottom bouncer. You also see guys pulling riggers with sr-7 rapalas and long lining reef runners. I guess it all depends on what you want to do. I like to fish live bait so I would start jigging/lindying the reefs. If its slow, pull the long lines or the riggers out and cruise the edges in deeper water. Watch your electronics because you should see fish a few feet off the bottom. Adjust the lure running depth accordingly. Good luck.

Perfect advice bapper......almost sounds like Blaine is a suburb of Baudette and you're out everyday.

You know Walleyejon, the 6 hour drive with 2 kids from Blaine kills me but once I get up there, there's no other place I would rather be. Its tough to beat fishing the rocks. I only get up about 7-8 times per year, but you always have the chance to catch that big one.

WJ, I will let you know. I think 7/18-7/22 is the next trip. Maybe we can meet up and find some fish and find some beers.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
