Need help fishing out of Knife River

10 posts in this topic

We need to drop my son off at the U in Mpls on Friday morning, have been reading that Superior is producing as of late. As a result I have convinced (I think) my better half to continue north on I 35 to Duluth. It will be my last trip out on the big lake for the year on dads boat at the Knife Marina. Has anyone fished out of that area lately or is most of the action out from the pumphouse to the state line? We have had good luck in the Stoney Point area in the past. Sounds like the bite is right on the bottom and a lot of meat-dodger combos, may give that a try. What color spoons have people been running. We have four downriggers and it will just be the two of us fishing. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I haven't been out of knife in a while. Bottom is obviously pretty deep in that area but if I were going there I would run a spread between 70 to 140 down and vary your speed to see what they prefer. Underwater temps may change around a little by then, too.

I went out of Knife yesterday with my buddy Loonasea. We fished Stoney point with spoons near the bottom in 150' of water. We had out limit by 10:10. Started at 7:30 am. Biggest was almost 20 lbs. Who needs meat rigs?

Tom...I was being sarcastic. I was extremely happy we did as well as we did. I am alwasy willing to learn new stuff.

Stoney point is about 1 mile west of Knife river.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
