Burning Ban ?

6 posts in this topic

We are coming up on Wednesday & were just informed by ourr resort that St Louis County has banned the use of charcoal grills. Just a heads up, it will change our meal plans. I also just bought two line counters for trolling cranks & was wondering if I should bother bring them up this week. Too early ? I have heard conflicting reports about opener, Shallow or deep?

THanks to all & have a great week fishing.

I think that if you fish during the day plan on going deeper. If you fish at twilight or darker you will find them in shallow. Try tossing light jigs of varying color with lively minnows in shallow for best results during low light conditions.

Hmmmm,

I would find a reef and jig deep with red white and blue or gold black and white 1/2 oz ball jigs. I have a trolling rod with a line counter and lead core but to tell the truth I have not ever been able to bring myself to use it. I am very stuck in my ways. I have heard guys talk about reef runners and fire tigers but it isn't my forte'.

Does the burning ban and the no-coal-grill policy affect the resorts on the lake?

As of today it still does. Only propane devices for cooking. You can keep an eye on the DNR site for any updates to the current ban.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
