Sorry this reply is late, but thought I'd post a report anyways...

Fished below the dam for a while on Saturday and of course caught several sheephead on crawlers. I did see a nice Walleye caught near me, but just the one. It depends what your after, but you can definetly stay busy below the dam.

I fished in my boat above the dam on Sunday for a couple hours and did alright. I was jigging with a minnow while drifting down the channel of the river. I lost alot of minnows and caught alot of Rock bass, a really big sheephead, a few small Pike and one nice Northern measuring 37"s long. It wasn't "fast and furious", but it was enough to keep me jigging in the channel.

when you fish below the dam, do you stay up near where the powerplant empties, or do you stay down by the edge of the walkway on the east side? I was down there for a while too on saturday, but didn't have much luck at all. I had forgot my minnow bucket at home, and erls was out of crawlers. I had a couple of REALLY nice strike using a rainy river smithwick, but i missed the hookset both times.

(btw i was the guy wading out in the middle of the river downstream of the dam on sat. i was out there from about 11:00 -2:00)

-thanks for the reply

I almost always fish on the east side around the last 1/4 of the walkway. The water comes up on to a shelf in that area and is usually a productive area to fish.

I was fishing down there a little later in the day than you. I think I started fishing around 6:30pm-7:00pm?

I tried fishing off the island too, but didn't do too much there. Walmart has crawlers too, and they are cheaper than at Erls.

I really wish someone would start carrying some bigger sucker minnows in town. The sucker minnows at Erls are a joke! $4.00 for a dozen really small sucker minnows!!!

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor

      Even serious anglers get seriously lonely. Fished too many metro lakes and beyond to count. Fishing has always Kept me sane and sober, its what I and I do it well. Recently moved, wondering if there's anyone out there who might wanna swap some tips, tricks, and hopefully some big ones. Not very good at this kind of stuff but hey, what do I got to lose by asking?!  Thanks, M.E.

      Loved across the street from it for years, on timbershore lane. I've caught monsters, several shore spots if you know where to findem. I just moved to inver grove heights and am looking for someone (or more!) To go back asap and catch some whoppers

      I've ice fished it a few times, this year actually. It's unnamed crappies and northerns, it's true it's private land but I've never had any trouble, guys in the buildings parking lot always waved to me.
