Catching trout on Loon

Recommended Posts

Granny

I am going to be camping at Savanna this weekend and wondering what to use to catch some trout on Loon? We used Mepps spinners there about 15 years ago...didn't catch anything. Any other kind of rigs that would work good?
Also, the DNR report didn't show LM bass in Shumway. In the other Savanna post the guy was talking about catching LM last year. The survey was done in 1996, were these fish planted since then? Love bass fishing so I hope he is right! Thanks for any info.

I haven't been there for decades, but, believe it or not, we once caught trout on mini-marshmallows there.

Hello!

Seabass77 and I took the wives up to Savanna State Park this past weekend and hit Savanna, Shumway and Big Sandy.

Got a couple snakes on Savanna. Caught both large and smallmouth on Shumway as well as some northern, including one weighing in at 4lb 14oz.

A couple small northern on Big Sandy, but not much of anything else.

Hope this helps.

Do you mind me asking what you were catching the smallies on? Sound like a good lake to toss the spinner bait. Thanks for the info

Seabass77 was jiggin' and casting for the most part and they got a couple.

We trolled around the shoreline and got everything on spinners. We were using yellows and rainbows with leeches. I'm sure a harness and crawlers would work just as well too.

It was our first time there and found it to be a very nice park. Have a good time!

My girlfriend and I are taking a few of her nephews and nieces out to Savanna. Its been a long time since I have been there but I do remember that it was a very nice park. Should be a good time as long as it doesn't rain too hard. Thanks for the help. Granny

P.S. Any size to the LM?

Just to add a note:
My wife and kids went over to the swiming beach there last sat. while I was wrestling with the boat. She was very impressed with the whole set-up! She will probably end up there this sat. also if it gets as hot as forcasted. She liked the idea of having hiking trails for a break in the action also. I think they will have a blast!

Savanna was very nice...even better than I remember. Shumway provided us with a lot of bass and pike action. Had a very nice pike (35"+) follow up my spinner bait. Did a little night fishing for LM and caught several bass in the 15"-18" range. Didn't get a chance to fish Loon. Thanks for the info. Brian

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.

      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh?

      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.

      New 2019 Regulations are out showing a slot increase from 17" to 18"!!
