Just finished with the last details and finalized my new job in Grand Rapids and will be starting the 26th. Looking forward to being full time at our place up there instead of just weekends. Also am glad to being a full time local again.

Hey knoppers,

My husband just quit his machinist job in Rapids and we moved to WI. We have a house for sale in Rapids. You could buy that and the place he used to work is hiring machinists so you would be all set.

why did he quit? not a good place to work, or did he find a better job in wisconsin.

thanks for the info, and will check into the jobs in the area.

knoppers,

It was a pretty decent place to work but I am originally from WI and we both got much better jobs here. I'm just happy my husband likes it here because I was pretty homesick while living in Grand Rapids. It can be a tough area to find decent paying jobs up there but the fishing is great. Thats about the only thing I will miss about it. Good luck!

p.s. did you used to live in the area? If so, whats your name? I wish private messaging worked!!!!!!

fishtrapgirl,

keep me posted on how your turkey season is working out. I'm headed down to the Baldwin area May 9-13 with hopes of arrowing a gobbler.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
