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

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
