All this snow is going to make our event a very hard one. Slush is a very good possibilty. Snowmobiles may be the only form of transportation. I dont know if wheelers will get through all this snow.

The drive home was NO FUN tonight, bridge took a bit to get over, got out to Poplar and came into light snow. As of right now it's stacking in my backyard. Looks like my household will get a share of what West Duluth had earlier this evening.

I work in the west end of Duluth and we got about 12 inches..... Drove home to Duluth Hts. and had about 6 inches. Tonight, I took the dog out for a walk in the woods. It was tough going, but a fine winter night.

I got a friend who fished East Bass on Sunday on 4 to 6 inches of ice plus 4 inches of water on top. I don't think Fish got the snow today.

Looks like the 17" West Duluth got is moving south now. I guess Superior got only about 5 or 6" and Fish Lake not much either. Thats very good news for Saturdays gathering.

Hopefully a 4 wheeler will get us around.

It is a good thing we only got around 5" in the Twin Cities last night. If we would have gotten what West Duluth got I would still be on my way home from work. My 30 minute drive took 2 hours and 15 minutes. frown.gif

I have to get my youngest through high school and then up north here I come. grin.gif

Only about 4" in Cloquet last night.....but it did take me 1.5 hours to get from UMD to daycare in Esko last night. Talk about gridlock, I tried every shortcut I could think of and ended up after an hour finding skyline parkway was empty from 24th Ave west to Proctor. Of course there was 14" of unplowed snow on it and whiteout conditions also, thank you 4WD grin.gif

I crossed over skyline at Hwy 2, and came face to face with a semi that had tried to leave the thompson hill rest area and jacknifed, his cab was sideways up against the fence, and his trailer was all the way across the road and up the rest area road. Luckily I was able to drive thru the snowbank and around him up to the rest area and down the other side to reach I-35.

From UMD to skyline/Hwy 53 was an hour, from skyline to Esko was 30 minutes.

Good to hear that Fish only got about 4", hope that slush frezes down. Will have the sled out with Junior tomorrow to play in the fluff a bit.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.
    • DLD24
      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
