Looper fishing for dummies

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys! I'm in Duluth for school, and want to try my hand at catching some loopers from shore once the ice is gone. Anyone willing to share some tried and true methods with me? I'd appreciate any advice I could get... I'd like to try anything; casting, slip-bobbing, fly fishing... I've done my share of fishing, but this is a new species for me.

Do a search for Stfcatfish's Looper post from a few years ago. It has everything you need to know.

brandones, welcome to FM. Great to have you here. cool.gif

Northlander, wake up. It's been stickied to the top of the board since about 5:30 p.m. I know, you've been addled by dreams of open water walleye fishing on the river. grin.gif

Thanks for posting that, stfcatfish. That's a lot of great advice! Now, any predictions as to when and where I can put all those tips to use? wink.gif

Yep, fish the shore near the Lester as soon as there's open water there.

There will be open water at the french sooner and likely to be a few more fish. Fish have been coming from various spots along the shore for months now. Just gotta be there and git er done.

Yeah, matt, thanks for that. I'd meant to say the French, and the Lester is what came out. Yikes! The French is much more productive than the Lester. Doh! Good catch, matt. blush.gif

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
