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.

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.

      Gotta be careful to keep the holier than thou attitude under control whatever you decide to do. After all not much difference between bass, northern (looking at you harpooners), walleye, even gills.

      I have eaten quite a few small mouth bass from Vermilion and a few large mouth bass from other lakes. The smaller small mouth are not bad table fare! The larger fish taste like mud to me! All large mouth taste like mud to me!!😛 If you were to suggest to these fishermen that eating the smaller fish will make a much tastier meal, not to mention a much safer meal because of the contaminant level in larger fish, that may make a difference in what they decide to keep.????  But as you said, they can legally keep them of all sizes. The DNR approach of a size limit would be best! Cliff

      a sign that ASKS people to selective harvest, releasing the bigger fish to keep those better fish genes in the population if you keep fish eat smaller fish...the old bill dance quote "limit your kill not kill your limit.... catch what you can use and release the rest to fight another day"

      Nice walleye Reid! How big? Cliff

      I respect your conservation minded approach but trying to TELL people not to keep those fish will just get you more of the same response you already got.  I also agree <15 inch bass are better keepers.  I keep a few myself each year and rarely keep anything over 16, preferring 12’s for the table. I’ve been a bass tournament angler in the past and have also promoted staunch C&R, much like the modern muskie culture, but have grown wiser with age.  I still target bass quite a bit just because they’re fun! On a 300 acre lake I agree a small group of anglers can and will have an impact with constant return visits to harvest large fish but the only two things you can do about it is, 1) As mentioned, lobby the DNR for protected slots, and 2) When people are happy to show you their catch, congratulate them and mention you like bass too but find the smaller sized fish much better table fare.  And maybe that you also fell releasing the mature fish keeps reproduction up to sustain a quality fishery.  And be nice about it.  Once you turn people off they’ll stop hearing you. That’s about all I have for ya.  Good luck.

      Bite was OK for us this weekend. Marked tons of fish but they only seemed to bite in small feeding windows due to abundance of mayfly larva down there. When they decided bite, they were inhaling our leeches though.  Rocks next to mud was best for us. Highlight of the weekend was walleye pictured below.

      I like the idea!!!👍
