Please understand why we don't like other sites being mentioned.

I and lot of members use downriggers quite frequently on Superior. If you ask your questions about downrigging in the Duluth/BWCA/Ely forum you won't stump us.

There are also a few that go to Michigan. I keep threatening to try Superior but haven't made it happen yet.

sorry S.T. i guess i should clarify a little. basiclly all i find is techniques revolving around great lakes or other large deep lakes. i'm a river rat. and although i've found bits and pieces on river downrigging it's not really what i want. it's going to be usefull for sure but after june i'm a muskie hunter ALMOST exclusively.i want muskie downrigging basics at least. i get 'em pretty regular without them but i want to get into a new category of fishing for them. casting is ok but i want to get those down deep fat boys stuffing themselves with 6 pound shad and whitefish. mabe i'll venture to wisconsin too(ramble ramble). anyway i'll check that area out you mentioned thanks

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.
