N E 1 Fishing Wed/Thurs around Duluth?

Recommended Posts

Papa Woodie

Anyone going to be out Wednesday or Thursday around Duluth? (Fish, Island, Caribou etc). I hear temps are in mid to upper 20's those days! Sounds like a good time for some eyes, perch, or crappies?

If someone is going out, let me know...maybe we could meet up and share some stories!

I got the ATV is the lakes are non-driveable!

By the way, how is island lake, fish lake, and caribou....are 4x4 pickup's able to get around on the ice ok?

Thanks for the reply Northlander.

Are either of these lakes producing either quality (or quantity) eyes or crappies?

No secret fishing place on either lake wanted....just wondering if 1 is producing more than the other?

Thanks!

I have never fished Grand lake before, but after seeing BD110's eye, it sure looks appealing!

I'm game for crappie, eyes, or perch if you want to go Wed morning and want to hookup, let me know.

I can move it to deeper water, but i dont think it will get there in one piece!

      Where are you located?

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
