Brookies

7 posts in this topic

Brook trout season opens this weekend and I would really like to try to find some. I know it is right at the peak of the looper run, but I feel it is time to try something new. The only problem is I have no idea where to look for them. I have heard that there are some good streams around the duluth area, but I don't know which ones they are. I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions where to try. I am more a quantity than quality type if that helps limit the options. Thanks.

your best bet is to go hit some of the upper stretches of the rivers that dump into lake superior anywhere from duluth to canada. people are pretty tight lipped when it comes to brookie holes and spots, but finding some fish should never be a problem, if you see a spot that looks like it should have fish in it above the barier fall it probally will. don't blame you at all on wanting to try something other than loopers, it can get to be a zoo this time of year, a brookie excursion kind of sounds refreshing. if you e-mail me at paul0508@d.umn i can point you in the right direction.

I know lakes don't open for a while yet, but there are a lot of little trout lakes around Isabella that have brookies in them. Some can get pretty good size. I don't want to give away all my secerets, but snoop around the DNR Lake finder site. That will give you a good idea of whats around.

As far as steams, if you don't want to travel far from Duluth, there are some pretty good stretches of water around, although sometimes hard to get to. Sportsman's Connection book on Duluth area has a decent map of local streams and will point you in the right direction. Hope it helps.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
