This summer I am looking to fish Lake Superior from shore this summer and coming fall. I have never fished a lake of this size of for these fish before. How can I make my trip successful? Any tips for beginners? What rod/reel should I get, and what line/rigs should I use? What should I look for when finding a spot to fish? Are there any hot spots I should try in the Duluth area?

You don't need anything fancy. Maybe a longer than normal spinning rod, so you can maximize your casting distance. Cleo's and kastmasters, that's all you need. Keep your rod tip high, and if you think your reeling in too fast, reel faster! Creek mouths are the go to spots...Lester, Talmadge, French, Sucker, Stewart Creeks, etc.

Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      Hello everyone,
      Does anyone know if there are any fish in the East Branch of Raven Stream? It's in the town of St Benedict, just north of New Prague? I'm thinking of buying a bit of land that happens to have this stream running through it, but I would only want it if there fish in the stream. I'm not too proud, it doesn't need trout in it, panfish and bullheads would suit me just fine. :)
      Anybody familiar with this stretch of water?
      Thanks in advance for any replies!

      Im going to cenaiko lake tomorrow morning. Ive been there once before but got there mid day so didn't have the following issue.
       
      Is there a way to get there before 6am when the coon rapids dam park opens?
      im guessing before the  park opens there is a gate at the enterance?
      I want to get there around 430-5 so I don't miss the prime fishing time, being it opens at 6 that's a good amount of prime time wasted.
       
      So my question, has anyone gone there (or the coon rapids dam park itself) before it opens at 6?
      if so, how do u get in? I don't want to have to walk from the side streets all the way to the lake.
      or is there a place to park closer to the lake outside the park area?
       
      EDIT: It is okay to fish the lake before the park opens, there is a sign at the lake saying fishing is 1 hour before sunup until 11pm.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet.
      Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park.
      My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them.
      It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish.
      if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now?
      I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      I am looking for a kayak anchor for my 10 foot sit on top kayak.  I chose the Scotty arm anchor mechanism that I'll mount on the back.  While researching it seemed simpler than an anchor trolley.  Im wondering what size/shape anchor will nail you to the floor?  This is mostly for lakes.  When I river fish in normally just drift.  The internet has people talking about ocean tides and rivers and massive lakes.  So, I'll ask you all.  What works for you best on MN water? Do you have the chain too with a release mechanism?  Obviously, less weight the better since it will off center.  Thanks.

      Hello everyone! I'm wondering if you have seen or heard about Strawberry Blonde Hellcats. I came to hear about these lures last year working on Bigstone Lake in Ortonville, Mn. The story I heard was about the legendary fisherman Gerhart Block and how he used and also painted Hellcats to consistently reel in big fish. I seen there was a similar post in 2006, but not much info was given. Anyone have a pic of the original lure or one painted by block. I just bought a hellcat at an antique store. I'll post the pic of it, and hopefully some of you can give me some insight or some anecdotes.

      A group of us fish using frozen Ciscoes for bait.  The last couple of year it has been a scramble to find these as our supplier for the last 30 years cannot get any.  This year we have not been able to find.  Any ideas?

      Price Reduced to $6,900!
      I am selling my aluminum 1999 Crestliner 1750 Sportfish with 90HP Mercury boat. I bought it brand new and it was well kept. The boat was sitting on my boat lift and the lake rose 14” overnight. It floated off the lift and sustained the following damage in the storm. The drivers windshield glass was broken, frame is still in good shape. Passenger window and middle window are installed now and in good shape. The starboard side of the boat sustained  scratches and a few minor dents. The port side sustained a couple minor dents and scratches. The back sustained a few scratches. The 90HP Mercury motor has scratches on the motor cover. The boat was in excellent condition and was valued at $12,000 prior to the storm.
       
      The good news is, the boat is ready to go. It runs great. You can take it to the lake today and use it. It is still a very good boat and motor. The interior is still in excellent shape, no interior damage from the storm (except a couple of small scratches). 4 boat seats included. Pedestal seat for bow. Bow converts to a fishing platform. Swimming platform and ladder. Bimini is in excellent shape. Mechanically it is still in excellent shape. Floor boarding is very solid. All electronics are in excellent working order. 2 live wells. New bilge pump last year. The motor continues to run excellent, have never had an issue with it. The motor was professionally serviced every year. Power tilt. Comes with an EZ Loader trailer in excellent shape, that was bought new with the boat. New trailer bearings this year. Has an excellent starting battery. Has a transom saving bar for towing and tie down straps that are included. MinnKota Trolling Motor, in very good shape is included. 2 anchors included. This is an excellent boat for fishing and family fun. With the current all-purpose prop it tops out around 37 MPH. 
      I am selling the boat, motor, trailer, and trolling motor, as is for $6,900. Located in Mankato, MN.
