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

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight 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 ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      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!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
