strange lights have been reported on the east lake thursday night. these lights reportedly have nets trailing behind them and its reported not to be the dnr. testing or keeping, anyone have more info? if they were on the east side they were probably on the west side also.

not unless the dredge has a jon boat with side lights ,spot lights and enough electrical equipment to fill a net with rush lake walleye. they were seen out of the lakeside picture window standing on shore scooping fish into a holding net. approx 9pm. on thursday night.

Hey Eye!

Could those strange lights have been the dredge barge that is dreging the channel between East and West? They were out there last week.

Sad sad sad!

I wonder where those walleye fillets that folks buy at restaurants, and at grocery stores come from....

Seems just ridiculous to me, to net a lake that is stocked heavily by the DNR. Makes ya wonder???

      Based on some searches, there is a public access at Stuntz Bay.    From google maps it appears to be about 0.9  miles and 22 minutes to the mine.  Your mileage may vary.    This link might work...

      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.
