Jighead I was there today and the only fish we caught were on rocks. 0 mud, 0 gravel, 5 on rocks with slip bobbers. Were rigging on the flats with no luck. Fished Indian point from 11 to 12:30 and boated 3 fish. Saw a few others around us caught. Had to be off the lake by 1 to get home for kids baseball or we would have stayed on the rocks for a while longer.

jighead,

Many fish have been caught over the last couple of days by guys corking on the edge of the mud flats also.

Does bobber fishing usually work better at night or is it an all day thing?

I use bobbers more at night, but it can be an all day thing. You have to have the waves pounding into the rocks though.

Some people are having success pulling spinners already out on the gravel and the mud. That's what I have heard. I saw the PWT leader board and it looks like the guys that we have talked to were having success that way.

The only way I caught fish last weekend was with spinners. Seemed like the only thing they wanted.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      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.

      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?
