Shagawa Fishing Luck???

6 posts in this topic

Anyone know how they're doing on Shagawa? I'm heading up with my dad tomorrow night and we're going to spend the weekend fishing. We know where we're going so no tips needed, just curious on how your luck has been and what we can expect.

The weekend ended up exactly how you said. It was a slow constant fishing trip but everything was very small. Not a keeper in the bunch. Thank god for the Ely Steak House though or we would have starved!!!

tbreuhl,

We were out there twice, once near the crowds on a point, did a bunch of little ones, we moved out to the middle of nowhere near the Lodge and managed a few small ones and one 20" keeper, man did that taste great!

Good luck next time

=-)

I always liked the "Designer Burger" at the Hideaway when I am out fishing Birch Lake. Haven't made it down there yet this year.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      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!
