Breakfast??

20 posts in this topic

Guys, the state pool tourney is at the DECC this weekend and looking for breakfast advice--preferably big and cheap. Either Duluth or Superior. Any thoughts on a good steak also? Looks like the weather will be mighty nice Sat-Sun. Hope I can keep my mind off fishing for a couple days.

Thanks for any tips.

I recommend Uncle Louis Cafe in Duluth for breakfast. 520 E. 4th St.

For steak theres Red Lobster, Timberlodge steak house, Outback, Blackwoods and Hammond steak house in Superior to name a few. If your looking for a place to get some practice in theres Mr.Luckys pool hall in Superior and Horseshoe in west Duluth. Good luck in the tourney.

As far as steaks go you cant beat the Hammond for price and value. Timberlodge is way pricey and over rated in my opinion.

Good luck in the Tourney. Ran why aint you shootin in it man? Get a partner as good as you and you could do some damage. Is it team or partners anyway? Might be hard to find a team all as good as you are I guess.

I also preferred the Hammond for steak back when I lived in Suptown, and Louis had great breakfasts.

Louis is no longer in "Souptown". There is a place on Belknap across the ave. from the Freedom gas station that has great breakfast. I think its called Julies? Also good lunch and dinners. Good prices and good service last time I was in there.

Thanks for the suggestions. Uncle Louies for breakfast and Hammonds for steak--not too far from our hotel in Superior.

Good luck fishing this weekend.

Yeah, got that checked out. I see you post on LOW and Rainy R time to time. Maybe share a brew with you up there some day, eh. A brew sounds good right now--peeling wallpaper and hating it. A bit more of that and then time to knock some balls around on the 9 footer, head for Duluth tomorrow, LOW on Wednesday to see how my house looks out on Long Pt. It will be kinda drifty I'm sure.

I love the Rainy River in the spring and fall. LOW rocks all year. We should hook up some time. Ill be in Bayfield/Ashland all this weekend though. Maybe hook up and Fish the river in the spring?

Sounds good. I fish the river quite a bit--weather permitting--arthritis in the fingers and hands makes for a long day if it's cold (unless I'm a passenger). I pretty much fish LOW every week--got a little cabin inbetween Walleye Retreat and Cyrus. Should be able to figure something out. Got a comfy boat-Yarcraft Storm BT equipped to do bait, downrig or flatline. Anchor too.

Let's stay in touch--always like fishing with FM'ers anywhere.

Let me know when a good time is to come up and join ya in the best walleye lake around these parts. Sorry Rainy Lake Guys but LOW is #1 in my book for size and numbers.

Now Northlander why do you have to go saying that? j/k cool.gif I will agree with you on the numbers, but Rainy does have the size...especially in the winter and for a few weeks in early July.

T.L.--I sneak over to Rainy a few times a summer and I have to agree with you-the average size is awesome. Numbers are good too. However, the number of 10 lb plus fatties LOW puts out is unequaled for a MN drive-to-lake. And the scenery.........big water is awesome but islands are special. Rainy wins the beauty division hands down (at least comparing to LOW south side). Gotta love both those lakes. I feel very fortunate to have two world class fisheries within a couple hours.

      I am sure Johnny P is all booked up on weekends by now and for some reason some of the guys don't like sleeper houses all though I may push for it this year last year was such a hassle packing everything up for the night loading the trucks having to bring sleds and wheelers. I much rather bring my flasher couple rods and lots of beer. I go fishing enough running and gunning its nice to have a break where you just show up and fish.

      Yes, he probably is.  I book with him early.  I think that he offers guide service in December up until he opens the sleepers up.  Might align with your portables.

    • I was on Namakan yesterday and kept 4 eyes 14" to 15" caught in under 20' of water. Water temp is 60. I was rigging with a half crawler. However, I had friends out using jigs and minnows in 40+ ft and they did well. He said he found a school and using his I Pilot just hovered over the top of them. So it seems the fish are scattered and all methods are working.

      I hope this weekend is better than last!!  I know there is a  lot of ducks around but they have so many places to hide.

    • If you want to stay away from the crowd I would suggest Beacon Harbor I think after jan 1st they don't allow day passes its only beacon harbor and outdoor authority who have houses there. Then they allow only a limited amount of yearly passes.

      Now they don't have all the bells and whistles like a bar and food ect but John and Ann are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Not to mention I personally think it is some of the best.

       

      Now if you needed a bar and food and all that my choices would be Rogers or Westwind

      Today was the complete opposite of yesterday. The current coming out of light house gap made a pocket of clear water out in the lake overnight, fished right on the edge of the muddy water in 14 feet of water and went through 3 bags of frozen shiners and caught a bunch on plastics after the minnows were gone. Nothing fantastic for size, only 3 in the slot but nice limits of 14-17 inchers and a ton of smaller fish. Once that muddy water gets blown out or clears up the bite is going to be crazy good!

      I got 4 nice ones last Friday in about 8' to 9' of water in a channel off Wakemup Bay .  It was the last hour of daylight.  Tried a couple times during the day Saturday and right before dark and struck out.

      Zach-

      I have been making annual ice fishing trips with friends for about 12 years ago.  We have tried LOTW, Mille Lacs, Red and one other lake that happened to be where we could use a free cabin for a weekend.  With that one exception for the free cabin, we have also rented sleepers.

      We have never made it to Devils Lake, but it is on my personal bucket list just because of the possibility of those monster perch.

      Six years ago, we ended up back on Red and no longer consider any other option.  Here's why:

      • This fishing is good.
      • The Petrowske family are wonderful hosts.
      • No other resort that we have used has come close to being wonderful hosts.  They just didn't put any effort into it.

      Now, I don't know how that you translate to your running portables, but I have never been disappointed with our trips to URL.

      Hope that helps.

      You should definitely try Devils lake I went 3 years ago and had a blast. Not only did we get put on a good perch bite but they put us on an Insane walleye bite the guy said it was about an hour window from when the sun starting setting and boy was he right in that hour I caught walleye after walleye after walleye. As soon as I would start reeling one up another mark would take its place on my graph and I couldn't get my lure down fast enough.

      I am sure Johnny P is all booked up on weekends by now and for some reason some of the guys don't like sleeper houses all though I may push for it this year last year was such a hassle packing everything up for the night loading the trucks having to bring sleds and wheelers. I much rather bring my flasher couple rods and lots of beer. I go fishing enough running and gunning its nice to have a break where you just show up and fish.

       

      I usually go to red 3-4 times a year and last year we did go to red for our work trip as well. Just weighing the options.

       

      Has anyone ever rented house from Arties bait on big stone?

      I don't know what to say, we crushed em jigging in 30 feet last Friday while getting knocked around in the waves. Anchored up and never moved. Lots of boats on the river already then and not good reports at that point. I was going to go back up for Saturday and if I did I would go straight out to 30 feet again.
