Need fishing partner for North Shore streams 4/18 or 4/19

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I am heading up the North Shore and will be staying in Tofte starting Wednesday, April 18th. I have only fly fished once before and will probably be hitting rivers around Two Harbors on Wednesday afternoon and then coming back down from Tofte and working towards Two Harbors during the morning and day on Thursday. I was wondering if anybody would like to join me. I am hoping to have a person to fish with until I hook up with my bro on Thursday night for safety sake. The rivers are fast and more dangerous in the spring, and it would be nice to not be alone. Anybody interested? Thanks!

I would pass on Quickstrikes invitation then, he's been known to send people down the river! blush.gif

On that note is your dad coming up again this year Kent? grin.gif

I don't know if he is coming up, his schedule is even crazier than mine is. I hope so, I need to redeem myself from the trip i took him on a couple years ago.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
