Anybody Been Out On The Reservoirs North Of Duluth?

I went out once  this fall and did OK  trolling spinners with minnows but the weather has been so lousy this September. If it doesn’t improve in the next week I may just winterize my boat and go into  hibernation

Normally when the leaves are changing the walleye bite gets hot along with a few nice crappies jigging with plastics ,,,, Have not hit Island Lake yet this fall but I have since moved to Iron River and its a bit of a jaunt to get there ,,, I wont winterize my boats till November

I was on Fish Lake last week and found it really slow. Water was 63 degrees and found no crappie schools yet. Also could not troll up anything. Have not made it out since the weather turned to crap.

Fish and Island have been slow. Did better on the Rainy River this fall. Time to put the boat to bed

Is the boat launch by the dam on Boulder Lake the only place to access the lake in the winter time? The map on lake finder shows a county access on the east side of the lake. Just wondering if that, or any other winter access exists.

Well, gave Boulder a try today. Went out from the dam access. Some open water behind dam. Couple trucks drove out 😬 I did not! Foot travel, and not knowing anything about this lake made for great day to enjoy the weather. Only caught 1 perch and 1 walleye.

      I’m thankful for the posts on here also.  Some reflection time never hurts.  Thanks to you all for sharing!   I’m also thankful that I can still work even though it’s a HAVE to situation.  And in the big picture I’m thankful I can be a part of helping keep my community be as safe as possible.  That’s probably the biggest stress reliever of all.

      Been doing a bunch of reading again lately and thought a topic on  Good outdoor reads  would be appropriate with the situation at hand.  Looking for some advise members favorite outdoor books they would suggest for a good read.  Ill get it rolling three of the ones I liked were MILLE LACS Thirty years on the Big Lake by Joe Fellegy Poachers Caught by chapman First Light on the Water by Al Ron Linder

      Saw 2 big Toms strutting with a group of 15 hens today. Still grouped up they should be starting to split here more and more in the days to come. Couple rain days and some sun will get some greenery going and fire them up ! Strut Zones will start to appear soon I hope

      Cant even imagine the stories that old cabin could tell. I always love finding things like these. Found some neat old abandoned stuff up in Ely In BWCA years ago.  One of things that has always intrigued me are old broken down deer stands.  Always makes me wonder how many deer were shot or missed or who sat there years ago. One can only imagine some of the deer camp stories that were told from them!

      Unless travel becomes actually restricted, I will be heading up to Vermilion for opener as usual. Like Smurfy, I can and often do go up and back without touching a thing. I can tow up there on one tank of gas, unloaded without touching the dock, fish, be at cabin, and return all with zero interaction. I will have to stop for gas on the drive home but that's not a real issue.   I usually do try to frequent businesses up there to spread my dollars around and infuse "new" money into the local economy, but this will not be one of those times. I am looking forward to opener one way or the other.

      My wife and I practiced social distancing today and took a long drive through the northwoods. Spotted this old log cabin back in the brush.

      How long do you think it will be before they put the dock in at Rice Landing?   I’ll be heading up towards McQuade either tomorrow morning or Friday morning

      Nice to see a sap sucker today

      Rice's is ice free but still some ice chunks out there in the bay so slow travel and keep your eyes peeled. Hate to put a hole in the boat this early in the season.

      I'm thankful that I got out of New Jersey safely and virus free, right before the anvil dropped. I then visited my elderly parents in Wisconsin and am extremely thankful that I didn't have any viruses to pass on to them. I know some people that have already died from this thing and know of quite a few others that are on ventilators in NJ and NY.    I am also thankful for internet forums like this one, that keep my mind focused on other stuff! Thanks Rick.
