Going to Duluth this weekend, for a couple daze. I know its a terrible time of the year, but anybody know of someplace where a guy and his son could fish, and have a realistic chance of catching something?

Thanks

Many shore spots on the St. Louis River around the Gary area and above. From Boyscout landing to the 23 bridge there are a bunch of spots to try.

wazz, I'm taking a large group of kids out this morning for the very same thing, some shore fishing. I'll let you know how we do. Also you could try some area trout lakes or for a change of pace, spend a morning off the Two Harbors break wall if it the conditions are right. Deep cold water there so the youngster will need close supervision. A life jacket might be in order too.

northlander put me on fish instantly two summers ago, thanks again. the kids and i had a blast, but northlander forgot to warn me to bring about 50 beetle spins because of all the rocks. it was just like he said. go here, look for this, and then cast. you will catch lots of smallies, maybe a walleye or northern. bass after bass, a couple gators and a couple things that i never saw. all east of jay cooke from shore.

SFBOY that spot was HOT all last year but with low water is not so hot this year. The fish seem to have moved out into the 1st drop from there. Some very large muskies have also been caught there. My buddy caught a 50" Ski just a rock skip from there. Theres a couple bigger in that area as well.

Oh and you are right when you say you will go through a lot of jigs etc. if ya dont stay off bottom a bit.

Little late for the cats but when they are getting set to spawn they are a blst in there.

Glad you had fun.

High Banks side of the damm area below the parking area. Look for weeds breaking the surface. Float a bobber up close with a plain hook and worm or cast 16th oz jigs tipped with a twister tail for crappies and gills.

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
