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

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
