Lake Superior Fishing

7 posts in this topic

Next weekend my family is heading up to Lutsen to ski. We are staying in a cabin right on the lake and I've been thinking about bringing my fishing pole. Would it be worth it to give it a try and catch some fish or should I just enjoy the skiing?

Since lake Superior is a boundry water, is anything thing still open beside pan fish?

I feel kind of dumb asking this, but I've never been up there.

Well I would spend the time with the family you never go wrong. But keep your eye on the forum and you will be able to see what is going on up here and what fish are biting and where.

If you plan on fishing the lake the fish that you are most looking for probably would be trout and cohos which both stay open year round. There are a lot of places to fish all the way up the shore but I am not sure what it looks like right now. However I can say some of the best looper days happen this time of the year when it starts to get warmer like it is right now.

Not too many loopers up by lutsen so you'll be pretty much targeting cohos which can be difficult. I suggest using a white looper bug tipped with a waxie under looper bobber or casting spoons. As skipper's kid said watch this forum. You could also look back through the archives for info on how to fish the shore if you've never done it.

You can't ski the entire time but you can't expect everyone to hang around while you fish either.

Get up early and put the coffee on. While everyone is sleeping, go out cast some spoons with one rod and a looper bug on a bobber with the other and watch the sunrise.

You'll either wake everyone up with the aroma of fresh coho and fried eggs for breakfast or everyone got up and drank all the coffee while you where out goofin around fishing.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
