North shore fishing

5 posts in this topic

I will be coming to the north shore to take a charter on Sunday but was wondering where my best bet to throw some spoons would be on Saturday. What colors/styles are the best?

Thanks

Give Brighton beach(next road past Lester river) a try. Once the Lake trout come in to spawn they'll anywhere along the North Shore but they tend to stage out deep off the Brighten area. You might get lucky and get an early arrival or smaller resident laker in close. The salmon will be staging off the river mouths, (Lester or French) early morning and late afternoon is your best bet there. Once the suns up they'll move back out.

Spoons, your looking for something with good weight/profile ratio that you can cast a good distance. Cleos and Krocs work in silver/orange or what ever you have.

During the day the Two Harbors Breakwall be worth a try.

Thanks ST. Is Mcquade Access worth a try? Would I be better off with a sucker minnow or smelt and a cork or are crocs a better bet. Does the water get deep very fast off Brighten or is it pretty shallow and rocky like most of the north shore?

Heck yes, give the Mcquade wall a try. Throw the spoons and set up your second rod(must be 100 yards from a river mouth)with a Ross (weighted)bobber with a flu-flu or Looper bug tipped with a waxie.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
