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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
