I was wondering with all this cold if the shore line is starting to freeze or has it been windy enough to keep it open.Did anyone get out this past weekend and float some bugs? Thanks

I just got back from walking the dog and from 21st ave to Duluth was open. Yesterday driving home from Two Harbors, the whold shore was open. I would assume it still is with this wind.....

I was just up yesterday and most of the shore is open but there's lots of sheet ice floating around and a lot of chunks close to shore that would be pretty bothersome. Some spots along the shore had a skim layer of ice extending from the shore itself too. The shore is sort of at that in between stage with enough open water to get a cast out here and there but enough ice floating around to get in your way and not enough to walk on. It's so cold right now I wouldn't bother casting anyway. Line and guides freeze too fast.

Anybody know if the Two Harbors landing is useable? I heard, as of a few days ago, it looked to be useable. Maybe after this cold spell it isn't anymore. I had delusions of trolling this weekend! Any info would be appreciated.

Too much ice floating back and forth to shore fish or troll. As of 2pm there is a bunch of ice hitting the shores of park and Wi. points. If we get a NE and some cold it could lock up. Warm this weekend though so my guess is it blows right back out in a few days.

Thats what a news paper article on a very small and specific spot will do. Must be a very slow outdoors season. crazy.gif

Funny thing is I would have NEVER thought to fish there. Who would fish in that small of area? Reminded me of open water fishing on Mille Lacs. Everyone stacked up on the flats. But the harbor is tiny!! I suppose come summer when I want to launch the boat it will be like Boy Scout landing \:\( Fighting dock fisherman. No problem with dock fishing But they sure make it tough to get in and out.

Ya they need to move the Boyscout fishing dock up the river farther so the boats can get out easier.

Fishing shouldnt be allowed inside the safe harbor in the summer in my opinion. No problems fishing outside the walls though.

Yeah, it's pointless to fish there. I'd never even consider fishing that spot. ;\) well...I might have stopped in there for a bit on tuesday and there's a small chance I'll be back friday and sunday. I'll post pics and give a report after it melts though like Sam Cook should've done. We need a huge harbor like Milwaukee has or atleast some sort of warm water discharge.

From what I saw today the ice blew back out and its broken up all over. Shore casting could be hard to do. Only thing to do is drive the shore and see what ya find out. Sometimes you can find a pocket to toss into for a while.

Or join the sure to be Zoo at Mc Quades.

I went to check out the French today. There was too much floating ice particles to cast, unless you cast nearly parallel to the shore. The large ice mass was pushed out a ways though. It was just a thick stream of slush by the shore.

It was open friday morning and my buddies that didn't want to fish McQuade landed one coho at Bluebird landing. The ice blew in by noonish and the whole shore looked covered. We're fishing inland today and hopefully the shore will be open on sunday. Anybody getting any hen loopers? Every one that my buddy and I have got this year has been a buck. We've caught enough to make that an interesting statistic. Just wondering if anyone else is seeing the same.
