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.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
