Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.
Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.
Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.
Smoked 8 up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.
fillet fish leave skin on
1/2 cup noniodine salt
1 cup sugar
1 qt water
rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.
sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.
have smoker heated to 200
put in smoked with a little cherry wood
smoke 1 hour and done. should be about 155 degrees internal.
nom nom nom ! ! !
Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.
any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
