North shore fishing/ Knife River area

I was up in Duluth over the weekend and took a drive up to Kendall's smokehouse and I noticed there was one spot on Superior that people were fishing. It looked like it was a new boat launch and everyone was fishing inside of that, there must of been about 6 houses. I am curious what they would be catching this time of the year??

Loopers, coho. Scroll through the threads, look for McQuade access or harbor. That should help. Never used to be that many shacks out there till Sammy Cook ran that article in the paper. Shows why small spots should not be talked about and how some publicity can ruin one quick.

It stands to reason that anyone that fishes much would've figuered that the McQuade access would hold ice and fish.

I'd say a persons' odds are better elsewhere along the shore provided it's open water. I've been to McQuade and we've caught fish but as far as I saw the one day we didn't have a looper only one other guy did. I wouldn't bother fishing a spot that has that many anglers and only gives up one fish. If you like fishing in crowds for loopers you'd be way better off at the french. There's a lot more fish there and you don't have to see them ignore you're bait...which is disheartening. I say we leave McQuade alone for catfishunter and his six inch whitefish. ;\) Let the guy have some peace and quiet, eh? We did bring home a couple 14-20 inchers for the smoker though so there are a few "keepers" in there. Maybe Cook should write an article on the whitefish fishery and see how many people show up. Can you imagine the hordes that would pile into the lester if he put the sucker run in print?! Mark your calendars everyone. The looper/steelhead run in the lester will be hot on the 29th! It's almost here!

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
