Fresh Herring around Duluth?

12 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had herring anywhere closer to Duluth than Washburn. With cold nights in the forecast I have a feeling I'll be scratching that Superior laker itch before my islands trip in a couple weeks. Only a little closer to home. I have a feeling I won't be able to get my hands on any fresh stuff, if there anywhere around here that has the packaged frozen stuff? I have always done better with herring than any other bait for lakers on the big pond, so any help would be great. Otherwise i've got some smelt and ciscos left over from inland laker fishing.

Oh yeah, if any you guys fishing off of 21st catch one and don't want it, you know where to find me! grin.gif

Hey Quick try giving russ at the general a call. He could have a place to start looking. In the next couple of days I'll see if I can find something for you.

Maybe Russ or another bait shop can get in touch with Bodins down here to stay in supply with some herring.. I know their delivery truck makes runs up to the north shore, so another stop might be doable along the way for some fresh herring bait...

But if your in a bind.. Fillet a golden shiner.. They work too..

There were packs of frozen herring at Marine General this afternoon. I think so anyway. The ciscos were listed as being on black trays (which they were) and herring were supposed to be on yellow. There were several yellow trays in the freezer. I should have actually looked!

Yeah, I saw em today, but I also saw that the wind blew most of the ice away from the Lester and north of there. I guess I'll be waiting til I go to the islands for lakers.

Nice fat Brownie Jim. All the Browns I have caught off of Park Point are more of a mud color. This is in the spring however. BC

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
