Pools 2 or 3 Bass Reports?

9 posts in this topic

Are there any bass biting on the river or should I put some gas in the truck and go to Wisconsin? smile.gif

I got some some nice fish last friday. I actually caught my biggest pool 2 lmb ever and I have been fishing it since I was a little kid. It was 18 in and weighed 4lbs 9oz. I was only out for a few hours and I boated 5 fish and lost another real nice fish. All my fish were caught on a spinnerbait around wood in 2-4 ft with deeper water near by. I fished a few different spots and didnt spend alot of time I just covered alot of water. I think if I would have had more time I could have got some more fish. It also sounds like some guys have been getting some fish back in grey cloud although I havent made it back there yet. I will be out on pool 2 sunday for sure. The fish were definetly more active then the first time I was out and I would imagine the fishing has only gotten better since.

We launched below the Ford Dam. I only picked up two fish in a backwater on some wood. I had some trolling motor trouble and had to call it a day.

Smallies have been hitting well on pool 2 all weekend. Check out the shore fishing thread for my report and the pics.

      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?

      not something I consider when eating as I don't eat fish weekly.  I feed them to my kids and my wife ate it while pregnant.  Not sure if there really is a concern or not but the basic guidelines are out there more for kids and pregnant women.  Unless you are eating fish daily or every other day then I don't think you need to worry a whole bunch.  Heck if you die because of mercury poisoning from eating too many fish, well at least you had one hell of a time before you died! HAHAHA   A few years back a local lake close to the metro started producing a lot of crappies and people drove all over to fish.  A lot of fish were taken and eaten.  The lake had been traditionally known as a dumping pond for farm runoff and other things like that...I ate a limit or 2 from said lake and never had issues with anything and the fish tasted like they should.  Point being that unless they say "DON'T EAT FISH FROM THIS LAKE" just follow the state guidelines for your kids and prego wife but other than that enjoy a meal or 2 a week if you are lucky to catch enough!!  Good Luck- Ozzie

      I think day use motor or camping requires a permit, not self service.
