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.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
