GottaGo

Brook trout season opens this weekend and I would really like to try to find some. I know it is right at the peak of the looper run, but I feel it is time to try something new. The only problem is I have no idea where to look for them. I have heard that there are some good streams around the duluth area, but I don't know which ones they are. I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions where to try. I am more a quantity than quality type if that helps limit the options. Thanks.

your best bet is to go hit some of the upper stretches of the rivers that dump into lake superior anywhere from duluth to canada. people are pretty tight lipped when it comes to brookie holes and spots, but finding some fish should never be a problem, if you see a spot that looks like it should have fish in it above the barier fall it probally will. don't blame you at all on wanting to try something other than loopers, it can get to be a zoo this time of year, a brookie excursion kind of sounds refreshing. if you e-mail me at paul0508@d.umn i can point you in the right direction.

I know lakes don't open for a while yet, but there are a lot of little trout lakes around Isabella that have brookies in them. Some can get pretty good size. I don't want to give away all my secerets, but snoop around the DNR Lake finder site. That will give you a good idea of whats around.

As far as steams, if you don't want to travel far from Duluth, there are some pretty good stretches of water around, although sometimes hard to get to. Sportsman's Connection book on Duluth area has a decent map of local streams and will point you in the right direction. Hope it helps.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
