WE ARE GOING UP TO NORTH STAR LAKE ON JULY 23 FOR VACATION, I'M WONDERING IF THERE IS ANY GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE FISHING? WE HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK BEFORE BUT NO RAIN AND WATER LEVELS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. CAN ANYBODY GIVE SOME IDEAS?
THANKS DEAN

WE LIKE TO FISH EYES IF THERE HUNGRY? BUT IT REALLY DOES'NT MATTER. I DON'T REALLY GO FOR NORTHERNS. WHERE IS A GOOD SPOT FOR PAN FISHING? I ALWAYS TAKE THE FAMILLY OUT IN THE EVENING UNTIL THE BUGS SET IN. THEN WE HEAD IN TO DROP OF THE GIRLS,SOMETIMES I WILL GO BACK OUT TO TRY FOR EYES AGAIN.

HEY ESOXMN, WE WERE UP ON NORTH STAR IN JULY AND SEPT LAST YEAR AND SAW SEVERAL MUSKIES THAT HAD TO GO IN THERE 40S. WHILE STAYING AT A RESORT THERE WAS A GUY UP THERE ONLY FISHING FOR THEM AND BOATED THREE FISH 40 PLUS INCHES. NOW I DON'T FISH FOR THEM BUT CAN'T HELP TO THINK WHAT A FIGHT IT WOULD BE.WE LIVE 60 MILES SOUTH OF THE CITIES AND HAVE SEVERAL GOOD LAKES, FRENCH IS ONE. NEVER TRIED IT BUT IT DOES SOUND LIKE A GOOD TIME. NORTH STAR WAS THE FIRST PLACE MY WIFE HAS EVER SEEN A FISH THAT BIG. WE WILL BE BACK UP THERE ON JULY 23 THRU THE 31ST. WE WILL SEE HOW IT GOES AND I'LL POST A REPLY

Cool! thats the resort we are going to on the 23rd of July. Tim and karen are great people. Thanks for the response! Did you get any walleyes? We caught several last year, just off the point straight acrossed from Cedar Point Resort. I was using my camara looking for the devils when I spotted them. I will post when we return on the 31st.

i only got one on thursday night,small though. after all the fun with the northerns and muskie i didn't put alot of time into finding any walleyes. most people at the resort were saying they were also catching them just out from the resort on the end of that long bar and on deep mid lake structure. and yeah youre right tim and karen are very nice people. they should still have my pics lying out the only one they don't have is my 15# muskie but i'm mailing one out tonite. good luck.

      Was a few years ago, but wade fly fished upstream of 53 for a half day.  Tried every popper and minnow pattern fly in my box with no success.  Finally in the middle of the day switched to a larger brown bugger that looked like a crayfish and caught them till I got tired of it.  Unless things have changed, there’s a lot of bass in there.  Not a ton of size, but every now and then you’ll pop a nice one.

      This looks awesome, your kids are about the same age as mine.  I’m really excited to show them the north woods next week, hopefully a few fish cooperate too!

      By larger limit, I meant 6, not 4 walleyes. I count released fish as part of the limit, too. Nothing wrong with a 15” by any means, but we had larger fish we could keep.

      Yes, smallies thrive in the upper reaches of select areas of the St Louis. Lots of structure to get caught up in, but great small mouth habitat.

      I'm about to take my brother and niece over to experience the Soudan Mine tour this weekend. I've driven there before but he inquired about boating to the mine. With the new state park, is there a public boat dock anywhere nearby where one could hike a mile or so from the lake to the mine entrance? I don't make it to the east end too often so my knowledge of bays and landmarks is pretty limited.

      Isn't that the mantra for muskie fishermen?

      Went fishing on Basswood on Sunday. It rained all day but we had a good time thanks to Mike Stark and The Ely Fishing Guide Company.

      Never seen it myself but I looked at the satellite images and thought it looked worth a float.  The dam would probably tell you what you want to know.  Couple good gravel bars too.  Maybe the water is dark or it is mainly deeper - that I can’t tell.   I fished the Cloquet a little where 53 and 33 meet and found good action so I’m assuming the St. Louis would be similar in that area?

      I spent the past 11 days at my cabin, fished 8 of those days and got some projects completed.  Fished Father's Day weekend with my FIL, 2-BILs, and my son, then High School friends this past weekend.  Both groups went home with limits with plenty of fish to eat during our stay.    Yes the bite was tough.  We moved around a lot and did what the weather allowed.  No real patterns, depths, colors, baits, or presentations.  Just put in time looking for them.  I'd say the bite was OK/good, a 5 out of a possible 10.  Some days slot fish were the rule.  My biggest was 29.5.  Some of the fish are already very fat, while others seemed to be on the slimmer side yet.     One day both the Coast Guard and the CO where working an area we were fishing.  Seemed like the CO found issues with 2 out of every 3 boats checked.  The CG seemed to find issues with 1 out of every 4 or so - ended their day escorting a charter boat back to the Rainy direction.  Sounded like they were working the NW Angle this past week.  We were ready, but did not get checked.     I will be up with my wife the week of the 4th, arriving Monday or Tuesday and heading back on Saturday to avoid the traffic.

      I did not get out this past weekend due to weather and wind but the weekend before we started to make contact with walleyes but only seemed to find the 13-15" fish.  We caught them in the 14-20ft range using jigging raps, rapalas, and lindy with a worm.  We caught a couple on Cross and the others on Whitefish.  I am going to try and slip up there for a night or 2 this weekend with the weather predicted to be nice and see if I can't find a few fish.  Good luck!
