Duluth "Area" Bass Fisherman?????

40 posts in this topic

Are there any guys around the Duluth area that fish Bass other than Granny?

Looking to see if anyone else who fishes bass in the Duluth area would have an intrest in possibly fishing a couple local Bass Tournaments that are around the "area" this year?

"Granny", the offer is open to you if your interested! grin.gif

Burner,

If there is enough interest, we should just have a few Bass gatherings over the summer here. Depending on how many guys, we could do some of the lakes on the schedule you posted or some other area lakes. Not sure if you want to turn it into a contest with money involved or not but it either way it would be pretty fun. Besides you and I, I can think of probably 5-6 other guys that would be interested. Let me know when you get it all set up grin.gif

Later,

Granny

I think it would be great to get a group of people together that would want to do that, we don't have a ton of "great" lakes around here, but there are enough spots to keep a guy guessing!

A couple of ideas would be,

St. louis River? (divided into upper and lower areas)

Chub Lake?

Caribou Lake?

Big Lake?

You could set a date, once a month or how ever often you can make it work, and all who fish could toss in a 10 - 20 dollar bill to make it interesting and fish as a team per boat, or make it a freebie or what ever is agreeable.

Anyone have any intrest??

I don't think you would have to many guys to have a problem, but would have to check on how many people before you need a DNR permit?

The only thing with $$$ is that you will need a weigh-in and that would mean live wells and stressed fish. You could just do the honor system and go by length. There will be plenty of competition even without money involved.

1st place team picks the next lake.

No wonder you make a $100,000.00 a year, you really come up with some good ideas! grin.gif

Now lets see if there are any takers?

If I was bringing in that kind of money, I wouldn't have bought a 20 year old bass boat! I will talk to a few guys and see what day would work best and if there is any interest.

Tubes,

I am sorry to hear that you have to fish with granny! HAHA

I think if we put some thought behind this thing, it could be a fun event for all, heck maybe Granny (Ol' Magicstick) will even learn a thing or two? grin.gifgrin.gif

I have been looking everywhere for the past month for a leauge/club/whatever you want to call it just as being described in this area. I would be more than happy to work with whoever in setting something up. Count me in if this takes off!

If we can get enough intrest in doing a "Local Duluth Area Bass Fishing Club", we can set a date to meet and work out the details for all, to make it a fun deal with everyones viewpoints and input on how to set it up.

If we can get even 6 boaters and 6 non boaters, that would be a start in the right direction. I think if it is based out of Duluth, and it was set up to fish the surrounding areas, Duluth, Moose LK, Eveleth, McGregor and so on, that would work for all?

If you think this is something that would work, just simply say, I'm in ! grin.gif

Wormburner - Boater, I'm in!! wink.gif

"OPTIONAL"

Also, when you decide to say "I'm in", list any additional lakes you think would work, along with how often you would like to see it take place - once a week - twice a month - once a month? That way we can all get a feel of how set it up.

Burner,

You might want to get email addresses or post yours and send out that page I made up. That way people can add to the lake list. I will revise that page I sent to you.

Granny/Boater - Wife/Nonboater

My vote would be once a month, Saturday or Sunday mornings.

I'm in. I could either be a boater or non boater. Weekends would only work for me as I live in Milaca but do a majority of my fishing in the western duluth area. Wormburner I have taught granny a thing or two already but I have to admit he has returned the favor a time or two. Besides he won't admit it but I out fish him.........oh ouch!!!! I like the once a month idea or about every 3rd weekend......let me know. If it's much more than that it would be tough for me to make it.

I'm all for every 3 weeks or so, weekends are good either day. Island (Duluth), and St Louis river are good for Smallmouth and offer a lot of launch alternatives. Sturgeon and Island (Moose Lake) could handle the pressure for largemouths. Mille Lacs is only about 90 miles away as is some of the Grand Rapids area lakes. Not sure what Grand and Pike have to offer but Grand is good size and Pike has a nice landing. I'm open to wherever but am going to be a bit gun-shy on the landing as I just upgraded my boat situation.

Mister Twister,

It must be the year for buying boats. You, I, and wormburner all got new rigs. We will all probably be a little gun shy at first.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
