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!

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc

      In northwest Wisconsin 26 hunting dogs have already been killed this late summer.   Already breaking the record of 23.  Be careful in the northland.
