Coming Up!

I’ll be staying in Two Harbors (actually Larsmont) this Fri 8/3. I’m thinking if I get up really early on Sat AM, I could fish for a few hours. It would need to be close and the species really wouldn’t matter although I would like to try my hand at something we don’t have down here in Rochester.

I’ll probably do the Two Harbors Breakwall if I don’t here of anything else. What are a few tactics that might work?

Again, I’d be game for about any species. Suckers, panfish, trout, bass, eyes, catfish. (I just need to know what equipment to bring). Honestly I really don’t know what that area has to offer, so I’m planning on bringing a variety of gear

Thanks in advance for your help. Any options\opinions are welcome. I'm sure this has been addressed before and if so, please point me to the thread(s)

PS.. I’m staying in Hinckley/Danbury on Sat and Sun nights

Thanks!

There is a great thread for the two harbors breakwall you could find through the search feature. If you get bored stop up at grand superior lodge, myself, shiner, illtakewhaticanget, and cheffrey work up there, although you'll probally run into cheffrey at larsmont. Have a great trip!

Tyler, go here and good luck on the wall! It's been very good to me over the years. Even now that I'm up in Ely it tempts me still. Well, the tourists don't tempt me. grin.gif

And dawn is a special time out on the wall. Hardly any tourists have slept off their hangovers yet, and the sunrise over the lake is worth it no matter how the fishing is. And, as far as that goes, dawn is a great time to get a few of those cohos and kings if they're in close. The DO like their low light periods.

Krocs up high and fast for salmon, steelies and loopers, down low and slow for lakers. Oops, that was just the whole Two Harbors Breakwall how-to in one sentence! shocked.gif

I think the Breakwall would be a good change of pace and something you can't do in Rochester.

Thanks stf and others.

I was the first person on the breakwall on Saturday morning and had the pleasure of seeing the sunrise over a glassy Lake Superior. WoW!

I worked Krocs in orange/hammered gold, green/silver, and blue/silver (all medium/middle size). For the most part I worked the lower sections of the water column, but I did make several countdown casts. I also tried a few raps but casting distance wasn't really there.

2 fish made it to the cement and both were rainbow trout (8" and 14") and neither were caught by me. I had to call it a day at 9:00am. They were caught a small Little Cleo green/silver about half way between the elbow and the tip.

Thanks for the report, Tyler. Looks like you paid the breakwall gods on your first trip there. Some days are fishless, others bountiful, but I've strung as many as three days in a row out there without seeing a fish, and then suddenly all heck can break loose.

The little 'bows were probably stocked this year and last year. Lots of them hang around the wall.

I payed my dues to the Breakwall gods too. Sunrise to 9 a.m., one strike from a dinky Rainbow at the end of the retrieve and missed him. Got interviewed by the creel clerk. Was the only one out there until about 8 a.m. when another guy came out. The creel clerk said that guy had gotten a coho and a laker the day before.

Nice to watch the sunset come up and I was in about a dozen photos (little do they know I'm no local). Lots of boats. Drove out of the lot and when I came no one was there, when I left I counted 25 trailers.

Well, it beats not fishing.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
