Nice catch! Glad to hear that area is heating up. Sounds like the river is still holding a few good fish, I was getting a little pessimistic with low water and lack of rain but there is stil hope! Now if I would only fix the popped rivet in my boat I could get out again.

I was fishing in 10' to 20' It was on the north side of the lake right by bouy 33 so they might consider it the river still... Lots of bites, my crawler got bite off by the hook many of times.. Anyone else have any luck on the st. Louis or by the lake at all

Couldnt get on the lake so I hit some spots on the river. 1st stop produce a 45" muskie on a 57 chev bomber long A and a few smaller eyes. I then ran up river farther and emediately got into the nice eyes. 1st 2 fish were twin 26"ers. Went threw 2 dozen crawlers and had a blast with eyes and catfish. Eyes were all nice sized and the cats ran from 12" to about 28".

Windy and cold but the bite was HOT.

Bottom bouncers and spinners with crawlers worked best but when my bow mount batterys died I went to trolling cranks and got some nice fish doing that as well.

Depths ran from 4' to 26' so the fish are still pretty spread out but the shallow bite seems best when we get some good winds.

Back at it tomorrow. If I get blown off the big lake again Ill hit the river again. Also got some fish in the Nemadji this morning on jigs and gulp shiners.

Another good day on the river. Fish seemed shallower than yesterday but still many in the deeper channel bends. Look for weeds that are at or near the sharp drop into the channel and you will find fish.

Spinners and crawlers as well as sticks provided action again. Who says the river is down this summer?

I fished that area a bit and picked up a few as well as the channel stretch and humps above 61 to the Oliver. The Arrowhead flats and channel as well as old creek bed produced some fish. Basically I found some fish every place I stopped. Spinners on big bouncers were best but sticks and cranks are also putting out fish.

I really wanted to hit some areas around the bong but the wind was just too much.

What were you driving? Maybe I saw you.

The St. Louis River seperates Duluth Mn. and Superior Wi. in its lower stretches.

what speed do you guys troll when using crawlers with a spinner?

do you adjust different speeds for if your going against or with the wind or current?

I fish Lake Superior a lot.

As for spinners I like 1.0-1.6 into the current and usually 1.4 to 1.8 with it. It will all depend on the day, current, blade size etc etc. Usually about 1.2 when on the flats.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.
