I have been out there four times now, the only luck I have had is away from people, (by something blue, thanks Northlander!) but only having a car and not wanting to get stuck it is hard to get away from the people! I am starting to get frustrated and wondering what the heck I am doing wrong!

The river can be really hit or miss at times around the point. I have had very mixed results with good days and then skunked(on walleyes) the next day. Just put some time in and get away from people and you are bound to get a couple eyes

Good Luck

Not to hijack this post, but how does a guy get into the pout or sturgeon? I really want to catch a sturgeon through the ice!

Anywhere around park point you just have to hope that one comes through and so far it seems like they like smaller jigs and hole minnows but I really dont know alot about them just what I have seen so far this year...also maybe try some deeper water

Guys I don't think it's legal to target sturgeon on the St. Louis River. confused I'm just sayin'.

Ive caught quite a few sturgeon on a smelt just laying on the bottom...leaves out the chance for a walleye though but pout and pike will eat it as well. Definitely something tight to the bottom. Crawlers can work good too, on the bottom...Really they will eat about anything but if I had one choice I'd probably pick the smelt. They will wear you out once you hook a good one.

Ya that blue object will soon be a magnet I can tel. Its a good spot if ya get just off the channel and in the humps. 8' seems best there. Dont be afraid to get out early and pop some holes into the drop of the channel and jig. I have caught some very nice walleyes doing that at dead noon.

My best bite has been on a lindy rig with a very small floater and a small chub tail hooked. Drop it to the bottom, put on a small bobber for a strike indicator and open the bail. Let the bobber go under the ice and then pop um. Lately they have been hitting very light. Some nights thats the only way to catch them and others they want it jigged.

If your not catching fish at 1 spot by 3 pm move to another.

Hit the bay tonight and got 8 fish. A couple nice ones at 26.5" and 24" and a couple take homes and a few dinks.

Tingler in silver/chart was hot and got a few on a buckshot and a few more on a forage minnow spoon in glow perch. The 4 biggest fish pounded the offerings. Best bit between about 2:30 and 4:30pm. Nothing at dusk. 20' of water on a sharp channel break.

Anyone fish the contests down there today? Im wondering what won them?

I have a bunch that I got may years ago. I found a little gas station with about 20 of them and got the whole batch. I probably have about 25 or so. I had more but them LOW pike just wont give them back. shocked

Hit the bay again this morning and did well again. Fresh walleye lunch was great.

If ya havent tried the Shore Lunch Beer Batter give it a try. Mix it with a dark beer like the South Shore Stout and its AWESOME!

I was by barkers last night and saw how many guys were driving trucks out there, kind of surprised me. There was a road going out there, but it looked like there was a break of some kind that would keep a guy tight to that shore, where there were few people fishing. Wheres the best place to get out off park point?

Yea this big weather change slowed everything down a bit I guesss...we had good success on the bay last friday. Hoping to get out thursday morning and friday.

Northlander how was the ice conditions out there? Is it sloppy?

Well if you have a perm on the bay you may want to think about getting it off. The west wind at 30 mph is pushing a lot of water around and its 12" deep in spots. Holes drilled are funneling water like crazy so dont drop any tires through.

If you are the owner of the balck canvas semi perm you may want to go get it because its on its side and full of water and it will surely freeze in if you dont get to it very soon!

Fishing was great for those who were out in certain areas as usual. That makes 5 of us out that I could see.

I wont go back out until we get a deep freeze to lock up the water thats all over the place. I actually saw waves going across spots of the harbor!

Cracks and holes are getting bigger and deeper by the hour.

Like I said if your house is out there go check it. Houses on the barkers side should be ok but if your in the middle on the flats our closer to park point your house is in a lot of water and will freeze in if we get any kind of cold.

Snow forecatsed will only turn it into 1 huge slush hole.

Jighead yours looks ok but there is no snow by it to push around it anymore. I could see right under it.

I figured that would turn into a mess fast with all this warm weather. I will be hoping for no snow and a good cold snap, I hate fishing in one big puddle...

Ya we need a couple of well below 0 nights to lock this back up. The bay will be a skating rink when that happens. If you dont have the perms blocked up then they will surely be frozen in.

Time to get a 14 fter out. They will be swimming around above the ice. May she will freeze up in the next week or so. To many nice temps in the near future.

      I will be, but I'm going to be sad since all the perfect hunting weather over the last three days rolls out just in time for opener 🤦‍♂️

      Yes that is correct. Try the BWCA forum. Cliff

      Water temp is 67 degrees in Stillwater this morning.  You can find the water temp from the following website.  Hopefully it's ok to post it.    https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=05341550

      I apologize for bumping this old topic, but I have done quite a bit of research on this, so I want to share my experience. We have one, but it is not the most heavily used piece of furniture in the house. It's in the study, so that one of us can be reading while the other is on the Internet or doing desk work, i.e., we can still be in the same room for conversation. Although it's one of the less expensive models, it is wonderfully comfortable.

      The main price differences are due to the amount of padding from one model to another, and the grade of leather in which you choose to have it finished. Also, some have attached headrests or headrest pillows. Unless the manufacturing policy has changed, some (all?) models are also available in microfiber cloth upholstery rather than leather.

      One of the main advantages of the product line is that most of the models come in a choice of sizes, so that it's possible to match the model to the size of the person most likely to be using it. For example, the Diplomat, Consul, and Ambassador--still the least expensive models, I think--are all the same shape and have the same stitch pattern on the upholstery but are different sizes of the same chair for different sizes of bodies. . . . If multiple people will be sharing a single chair, however, it is generally best to pick the size appropriate to the largest person, i.e., largest basic body frame size. My wife is petite but still quite comfortable using the larger Ambassador.

      If searching online, Stressless is the U.S. product marketing name, but also look for "Ekornes" (Eh-kor-ness), the name of the Norwegian manufacturer. They do have occasional national sales, but not on any predictable schedule, or at least none whose timing I've been able to figure out.

      We bought our chair from Amazon https://10restbest.com/best-zero-gravity-chair the online name of a furniture store in central Massachusetts. I usually try to "shop local" and would have been glad to buy it from a local furniture store with whom we'd done business for years, but they would charge a $65 fee to transport it three miles to our house, whereas the place in Massachusetts offered free delivery. On YouTube there are a lot of interesting videos on this topic, I will share with you, one of them, hope this will help someone. Good luck

      History_Geek, I'm guessing the Vermilion area your referencing is the Vermilion by Hasting Minnesota/Wisconsin border area, this page is regards to Vermilion in northern Minnesota, approx. 200 miles north of that area your requesting info on. I have never seen a cat fish up here, they might be here I just have never seen one here. just saying. Good luck keep searching someone on FM will help with your ?.
