Duluth area?

3 posts in this topic

We will be going up to Duluth for a graduation party this weekend (staying at Black Bear ) and since my daughter and I have a 10 minute fun factor for family get-togethers I was thinking about bringing up the fishing equipment, anybody have ideas as to were a guy and his kid could fish from shore for ? in that area to waste the time of day?

I'd have to say that probabaly the closest/best place to try off shore would be chub lake just about 10 minutes from black bear. Its just a few miles south of Carlton, just follow the signs. I believe that the fishing dock is in now, and if not you can either fish offshore near the boat launch, or off the launch if you stay out of the way of boaters launching/loading.

I take my 4 year old there almost every sunday and a bobber and piece of worm will catch you gills, sunnies, rockies, perch and even a small largie once in awhile. Most fish are small, but by using a weighted slipfloat you can cast out aways and maybe get some size. There should be some decent emerging weeds that should hold some fish.

PS: Its a county park so you could bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the day, its supposed to be pretty decent this weekend (finally) smile.gif

There are various launches on the st. louis river where you can fish from shore and get a variety of fish...walleyes, smallies, catfish, etc.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

      Anyone going out for the opener this weekend? I'll be too busy trout fishing, but I'm all booked up for the month of May on the Croix

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
