Anglers raise money for Duluth woman

A gathering of lake trout anglers on Burntside Lake near Ely last weekend raised $1,888 for a Duluth woman who is recovering from complications following brain surgery.

The sixth annual “Burntside Bash” was a gathering of anglers who frequent a fishing forum at http://www.fishingminnesota.com. This year, 75 anglers gathered Jan. 26 at Burntside to fish for lake trout and to raise money for Duluth’s Deb Radosevich, who lives with Tom Pfister, a regular contributor to the fishing Web site. Radosevich, 44, suffered an aneurism and a stroke following brain surgery in October to remove a tumor from her brain. She is currently at Chris Jensen Nursing Home in Duluth.

Anglers raised the money through donations and a silent auction, said Ely’s Steve Foss, one of the event’s organizers and a moderator on the Web site’s forums. Several people and businesses donated items for the auction, and food for the event was donated as well, he said.

Donations can be made at Republic Bank, c/o Deb Radosevich Benefit, 3 Thomson Road, Esko, MN 55733.

Its great that the Duluth News even gave us a blurb \:D

Sorry, Northlander, one of the meanings of canonize (since before Canon cameras became so prevalent) is: To glorify.

Actually I think "canonized" means to be named a saint. Let's hear it for st. steve.

Catholic school upbringing taught me that canonize has several meanings, and one is to be named to sainthood. Another is to be recognized or sanctioned formally by the church. Another is to glorify.

But let's not get carried away. My first four laker outings this season were very nice, but my last five included three skunkings and two with only one small eater each time.

There are no laker fishing saints, only laker gods, and we know the gods are in charge and love to level the playing field. cry.gifcry.gifcry.gif

      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.

      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

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      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

      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?
