where to find lure in Duluth

8 posts in this topic

I am looking for a Heddon Sonar about 3 inches in length. It was my favorite lake trout lure and I lost it last weekend on B-side! They didn't have them at the bait shop in Pike Lake. When I bought the last ones I bought them in Grand Marais at Beaver Flicks Bait shop. Does anyone carry them in Duluth?

Have you called the shops? Generally that would be my first step, look in the phone book and let your fingers do the dialing. There's only a few possibles.

What color is it. Marine General, Bait Box and even wally world carry them. I think I saw Cabelas was having a sale on their sonars and they are very simular if not the same. Nice paint jobs too.

They had them at Marine General. It seems the last time I went there they didn't have them, now I went there and they only had a few left. Their merchandise just flies off the shelves.

wippersnpr,

Got a bunch somewhere in my shop that are unpainted.

I have a mold and poured them about 3 years ago.

Also have the split trebles they need.

I have not fished lakers before, where would you use the sonars?

E-mail me your area or lakes.

Thanks

Lake Minnetonka is my favorite pristine water. The fertilizer from the rich people's lawns grows them big.

Any place you find lakers sonars are a good bet.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
