I will say you can find one but for a great time and you get to grab the rod and do it on your own well I hope you find a good one. I can set you up just as the boy's of this site you can call any time capt. tom at 218-348-07000 for a great day on the big lake.

I have personally fished with two of the charters out of Duluth. If you are looking for a good time, and gain excellent knowledge of the lake, Skippers Kid (Tom) is definately your guy. His knowledge of the lake, and effort to put you on the fish is top notch. Also with Skippers Kid, you always get 100 percent effort on catching your own fish. With him, when you have a "hook set", you grab to pole from the holder, and work it.... you don't get what some of the captains will do and set the hook, reel it half way in for you, then hand over the pole. Definately do your homework! Give him a call and see what he can offer you. From a fellow FM'er....his servies can't be beat.

Good luck on whomever you give a try...It is definately a blast.

Theres a lot of good charters in the Duluth area. Some of those captains stop by the forum from time to time like, Skipper's Kid, End of the Line and Hard Times, they'll all get you on fish and show you a good time. I have to add that SK is a guy that volunteers his time in community involvement and I admire that in a person.

chaser, kids love it. Sit them on your lap and you can lend an arm when they tire.

There used to be a website with alot of the captians on it. For different reasons we dont have it anymore. If you want the Coho this time of year you may try a charter alittle farther up the shore. Otherwise we have the big lake trout down here right now with maybe an odd walleye or King salmon. If you do a search for End of the Line Charters in Duluth you'll find my info. Check it out, then if you decide, please give me a call anytime even if its just some questions. Good luck!

Chaser, I'll also suggest Skipper's Kid or Hard Times. Another great charter is Bill's Great Lakes Charters. These three services are top notch all the way! Bill's Great Lakes Charters and Hard times have been captains on the big lake for over a combined 40 years and are probably most consistently on the fish. Skipper's Kid is also a great guy and knows how to fish. Any of these guys will take care of the kids to ensure they have a great time on the water. ...And with these guys YOU GRAB THE ROD!!! Good luck with whoever you hook up with and have fun!

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      How has the bite been this weekend?  Not able to fish this weekend due to graduations.  Shiners still working?
    • eyeguy 54
        I bet Andy caught that and let you pose with it. get that anchor on so you dont go over the dam ! !  lol  stop by if you wanna see a cheap way to rig a trolley.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.
