Little sunnies. That's all.

There was a bunch of people down there fishing it last year and i have a hard time believe all they were catching were little sunnies. I have always wondered what people catch down there. Last year there was a post about this same little backwater but nobody could figure out what they were catching.

I would guess most are catching a buzz..either from the beer they are drinking or the fumes from all the diesel trunks running north and south on 41.

Yeah most do, i grew up in that part of town. fished that river many a times. I used to sit there and catch a heafty buzz some carp sheephead and a few other fish. I couldnt ever pull anything good outta that particular spot. but move to the chaska side by the launch and hit that creek up. Walleye like it there

i took my duckboat and my dog in the summer one time there just to kill some time and fish and get the pup used to the boat, i was cruising around with my trolling motor and doing some casting with a thunderstick 2 and caught a huge northern.

the local shakolatinos fish the lake all the time, the grade between the lakes is always packed in the summer!

Was out there last weekend. Hooked about a dozen crappies or so, no size though. No real access to the lake either and pulling a portable up the hill through the woods is the pits.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
