youngest son's first laker

5 posts in this topic

25 inch laker caught near Lester by my youngest boy. We went out for a couple hours and got 2 releases and one in the boat by 9 am. Trolling with downriggers and inline boards. Releases and fish were caught in 108-110 feet about 60 feet down with glow in the dark Pro king spoons on the riggers. He is begging me to go out again this evening but dad's tired. Another day. grin.gif

By the way, I used spoons but I have a truckload of floating jointed rapalas. How well will these work behind a downrigger ball? Any favorite colors or speed??

Great for the young 'un. But NOW you've done it. He'll be relentless trying to get Dad to head back to the big water. grin.gif

I've trolled jointed Rapalas behind balls for inland lakers. Works great, but they don't operate too well at speed. They are designed to have enticing action at slow speeds, kind of like the old flatfish and lazy ikes.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
