St. Louis and Island Shorefishing Oppurtunities

5 posts in this topic

Will be up in duluth this weekend and would like to sneak out for a few hours of shorefishing. Where are some good places I could go to at the st. louis or island lake? Would it be worth it this time of year?

St Louis has many spots to fish from. I would recomend Boyscout Landing at this time of year. Or above the 23 bridge and take the trail off the board walk. Pack light if ya hit that one.

Island Lake I would fish the bridge area or the area to the right of the landing at the MN Power Landing.

Fish Lake Bridge and d a m areas can be ok too.

It looks like there's a landing or parking lot on the west bank of the st. louis just upstream of the 35 bridge...is that accessible to the public? That stretch looks like it'd be really good fishing.

NL - I have a question and you may know the answer. If a person with a MN license is standing on a WI shore fishing the St. Louis River. Do they need a WI license?

I have fished off the arrowhead pier in wi many times with a mn license and been checked numerous times by the dnr...no problems. As far as fishing there now...never fished it this late, so not sure how it would be.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
