Shore fishing around Grand Marais

Recommended Posts

iceman1977

I am camping at Grand Marais this weekend, and was wondering if there is any fish to be caught from shore around there yet. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Try casting out from the breakwall, or try casting out into the lake near the river mouths. This is the time of the year when the pink salmon start to congregate. Try small spoons like weasels or KO wobbelers.

Cascade and Brule rivers get good numbers of salmon runs in the fall, so the mouths of those rivers would be the best, but the kadunce river is a nice little spot to cover alot of ground also...I've caught mostly lakers there, but the occasional coho or chinook. I've always done best with blue/silver spoons, but it always pays to experiment.

Thanks alot for the info. What size spoons should I use. And do you have to use single hooks. I read the rule book but i dont understand is it single in the river, and treble in the lake or vice versa. I found some KO wobblers at a local bait shop they were in 3/4 and 1/2 oz. Should that work?

Thanks

Single hooks in the rivers, and I believe within 100 ft (maybe yards) from river mouths...but I think it only applies to shore fisherman...I am not 100% sure on this, so if anyone knows for sure please chime in. I prefer 3/4 oz krocodile spoons, cast masters are really good for fish near the surface.

My understanding has always been no trebles in the river, but that you could use them in the lake even in the 1st 100 yds. Seen plenty of people(myself included)pitching spoons and spinners right out in front of the French river and as you can guess the DNR visits pretty regularly. Never heard of anyone getting a ticket for fishing trebles there.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
