Long Point and Rocky Point spots have been seeing a reliable bite from the sound of things. If I were you I'd probably go out on Babblers road somewheres around the some of the rockpiles out there. Road closed this weekend but hopefully he'll have back in shape in the next couple few days?

Have a good trip.....fiskyknut

Take hwy 15 N out of Rooseveldt to the last curve on the hwy before Arnesons resort and you'll see his sign. He's right there on Rocky Point. Fishing grounds kinda start right out from there, road goes near to Gull Rock, then on around Arnesons reef area and on out to 16mile. He will hopefully have it back in shape here soon once the weather settles.

Sheephead24- I just went up to LOW off Babbler's road for the first time on the 17th. It was easy to find. When you pull into Babbler's road just stop at the shack and put your money in and out you go... I bought a $20 Lakemaster map and plotted out some areas. I never got past the Gull rock area because we caught a good amount of fish. Nothing big (but big enough) and we brought home our limits. I was fishing in 28' of water. I had been planning on going all the way out to 12 mile but didn't get that far. Next time I'm bringing a portable too cuz there's lots of good looking area to try. Good luck!

How far out is the Gull Rock area? and do you need a map to find it? Thanks for the help.

Don't need a map, you can see it from shore.

I am also going to the big pond this weekend, fishing the 3rd and 4th out of a sleeper house. Since there will be a lot of snow, I'd consider calling ahead and checking with people that rent houses. I am using a guide that has 4 bomber vehicles and plenty of fish houses. His cost is by far the cheapest and if you want to call me I can pass on his info to you. I used him 2 weeks ago with the kids and we caught plenty of eyes with the biggest being 19". 701-388-3654

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.
