Hello everybody!

New to the forum - holy cow there are alot of topics here!! I dont even know if I'm posting under the right one. Anyways...

To all the Duluth - Superior anglers,

I currently have a permanent out at the end of 28th street in Superior and have been doing horrible fishing. Last year we killed the Northerns - this year we've been out 8 times and caught 2! Anyways, I'm thinking of moving the shack out from Perkins on the Superior side of the bay. Has anyone been doing any good out there? My uncle talked with some guys on the Park Point side and they have been gettin some decent eye's - how about anyone else? I heard they've been biting after 3 into the night. Any help would be appreciated! My shack is always open to anybody that would like to use it. Thanks!

Welcome Jighead. Post this in the Bwca/DULUTH forum and you will get more info.

The bite is getting better off of park point. I would fish there before 28th St. any day. Let me know if ya get your house out on the bay and Ill stop on the sled some day.

i usually just pull my Otter from my house behind fairlawn out across Barkers and out to the bay.

One hint is put your house as far away from others and roads as you can. When it gets busy on a weekend and your stuck in with a bunch of "sheeples" causing a bunch of noise the bite dies.

lots of fishy water and fish are coming from 5' of water all the way out to the channel edges. Look for rolling humps and or deeper holes and set up un edges of them. Or set up close to the channel edge. Shippping will be done by Thurs they say.

Hey thanks Northlander!

Yeah my uncle says that there are a bunch of humps right out from the s--- plant. And 6' of water sounds about right. Besides catchin' eye's are there any perch or pout to be had? You will know my shack out there, it will be the one that is 8' x 12'. I'm pretty sure it would be the biggest out there seeing as everybody else is portable. I have noticed quite a bit of traffic out there on the weekends.

If you go off the Park Point boat launch and pull it out you will be surprised by how big some houses are. Very few perch but pike, musky, sturgion, pout and eyes all are caught down there. My buddy got 4 walleyes this morning and another got 4 and missed 1 at the hole. They seem to come in waves. Mornings have been better than afternoons but you can still get them all day if your in the right place at right time.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      but are the northerns making flags go up?

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.

      I will also add to my above post that the discoveries of this disease in new areas like crow wing co. should not become a panic in that area and the whacking of deer in these areas is truly nonsense. What if one deer survives the mass killing that happens to be infected ,, well then what ? In a herd that annually is around one million in our state , having a handful of sick deer from CWD is not the end to our herd .How many deer actually do test positive from these stupid massive killings when all the bullets are done flying ?? Sooner or later with the now implementation of CWD testing , ,it’s gonna pop up  in new areas either naturally or by the existence of poor oversight and improper management of deer farms . So if this time it’s a deer in Crow Wing Co . So the DNR says let’s whack them all in that area , how bout when one happens to test positive next month in Lake of the woods co  , well let’s whack them all there too , and when one happens to test positive in Itasca or Hubbard co , well let’s whack them also . Before long we won’t have any deer left in our state with this stupid thinking , it won’t be the he disease itself that eliminated our deer herd , it’s the DNR that just eliminated our herd .. killing as many deer in a positive test area does nothing to help the problem..  on another note our DNR management of deer is terrible and many times quotas for upcoming seasons are determined by auto  insurance companies who pressure the state that these areas are carrying to many deer and the herd needs to be thinner in these areas , and thus lowering  the payouts to insured motorists who happen to hit a deer and make a claim. So then the state ups the permits and harvest in these areas to thin out the deer , ahhhh money the root of all evil. Nothing to do with a Biological stance whatsoever. And when these numbers don’t fall within quotas by permits to harvest these extra deer , well then find a deer in those areas that has CWD and kill them all , then the state says “there now we lowered those numbers “ and the insurance companies say thanks . Nooooooo dat don’t happen , does it ??? Hmmmmm !!
