Going to Duluth this weekend, for a couple daze. I know its a terrible time of the year, but anybody know of someplace where a guy and his son could fish, and have a realistic chance of catching something?

Thanks

Many shore spots on the St. Louis River around the Gary area and above. From Boyscout landing to the 23 bridge there are a bunch of spots to try.

wazz, I'm taking a large group of kids out this morning for the very same thing, some shore fishing. I'll let you know how we do. Also you could try some area trout lakes or for a change of pace, spend a morning off the Two Harbors break wall if it the conditions are right. Deep cold water there so the youngster will need close supervision. A life jacket might be in order too.

northlander put me on fish instantly two summers ago, thanks again. the kids and i had a blast, but northlander forgot to warn me to bring about 50 beetle spins because of all the rocks. it was just like he said. go here, look for this, and then cast. you will catch lots of smallies, maybe a walleye or northern. bass after bass, a couple gators and a couple things that i never saw. all east of jay cooke from shore.

SFBOY that spot was HOT all last year but with low water is not so hot this year. The fish seem to have moved out into the 1st drop from there. Some very large muskies have also been caught there. My buddy caught a 50" Ski just a rock skip from there. Theres a couple bigger in that area as well.

Oh and you are right when you say you will go through a lot of jigs etc. if ya dont stay off bottom a bit.

Little late for the cats but when they are getting set to spawn they are a blst in there.

Glad you had fun.

High Banks side of the damm area below the parking area. Look for weeds breaking the surface. Float a bobber up close with a plain hook and worm or cast 16th oz jigs tipped with a twister tail for crappies and gills.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
