Shore fishing??

7 posts in this topic

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.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          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.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
