6 posts in this topic

Whos going to Duluth/Northshore this weekend for smelt and/or steelies? From all the posts...Seems like we got a good crowd going. I guess we're all just counting on the guys up there to give us the ok whether or not the fishes (loops,steelies, and smelt) are there. grin.gif

Water is still real cold. I really dont think the smelt will run before this weekend but ya never know. Keep a eye on the smelting post and Ill keep ya up to date. Ill be out nightly.

As far as stealhead and loopers its been slow but a few being caught.

Steve, you think you could do something about that white pak ice stuck to the points wink.gif A strong SW wind and warm rain would sure help things out.

I've been watching that pack outside my front window this week...its actually melting at a pretty good rate. Every morning i look at it, its further and further towards the lift bridge. I give it two weeks at current weather and it'll be gone. Thats not good new for smelting however.

Ran I was thinking we all get our boats out there and drive by it at quarter throttle with the nose high and toss as big of a water wall at it as we can for a day and see what that does. Or wake those coast guard guys up and have them take the breaker through it a few times. grin.gif

Its not looking good at all for the points.

Im going to check the St.Louis but I havent seen Seversons get their nets out so I dont think its worth it.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
