has anyone gone down to boyscout to see about conditions?

Northlander, have you ever tried it earlier, I know usually we are down there about the 3rd weekend, but I don't think we ever have ice this early.

Won't be long now!! I know the Nemadji river has been froze up since before Thanksgiving. I wouldn't quite trust Boyscout quite yet , It seems to be last area for safe ice.

But anyways... I'm ready for pout!!

How many guys would be interested in a St. Louis River Poutfest? Maybe the weekend before x-mas? Maybe the weekend after? Depends totally on ice conditions of course.

Maybe go $5 a head and biggest Pout takes all?

WHO'S IN?

If Ripstick can catch a pout anybody can. All ya need is minnow heads/tails and jigging spoons or jigs.

Usually the week between Christmas and New Years is good for Pout so I would be in for the weekend after Christmas and 5 bucks sounds good to me.

I'm all in.

I haven't heard of any run for years on the Amnicon but I don't think anyone jigs for them there. I know years ago they used to spear them down there. The last ten years or so the water level has been so low that I don't think they can get into the river under the ice. It would be fun to find a spot to spear like in the "old days".

The Nemadji gets a nice run some years.

Skipperskid you know where the Pout are. All Over the place once they come in. Most people fish them by Boyscout though due to easy access. Make sure you check ice really good though. Whats 6" here can be 1" just a foot away.

Smelt heads on a jig or glow spoon works great. Also some of the scented paste and sprays work well for pout because scent is huge with them.

Where do the pouts go after the spawn is over? Are they a common catch while fishing for loopers infront of the lester/french in march?

I believe they head back out to deep water, I have never seen or heard of anyone catching one off of river mouths, but I have seen them caught and caught a couple myself while jigging deep water for lakers.

Hmmmm...don't know if I'll venture out far/deep for lakers on superior, but that'll be a hot topic when that season gets closer. I do like catching pouts though, they put up a good fight and are a different change of pace. Haven't eaten one yet, hopefully I'll get a chance this year.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
