A.P.B. on DuluthGuy (Just Kidding)


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Has anyone talked to DuluthGuy???

Butch where are you man??? I'm starting to think that DuluthGuy took off with that run-away bride the other day. I can't believe we made it throgh a whole Looper season and now smelting and we have not heard from him. He doesn't even check up on the big red truck anymore.

So I thought if we all told him that we were thinking about him and we were wondering what he was up to. He would have to at least give us a post and let us know he is alright.

So Butch if you see this. I'm just wondering how you have been. Also what have you been doing with that boat of yours.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

Seriously, I asked about him about two weeks ago and someone said he was hitting the books? If that is the case than some of our UMD FM'ers could take a free lesson from ya Butch.

Hey Guys,

I don't know what I'm going to do. I was hoping to get a few more bait casting lessons from DuluthGuy. This time I would like to try it before the party gets started. Butch sure has a way of making you understand a baitcaster. Maybe it was just the beverages before hand. grin.gif Well enough of that. I have to get going.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

I haven't seen a post from him in a long time. Hope his woman doesn't have him clamped in a vise somewhere, in a dark dirty basement. I enjoyed having him on my boat last year. Northlander, I am going to head up after work tommorrow night. I was planning on watching the smelt reports. If people are having some luck I was going to go right to the point. Otherwise the boat, and cocktails. I did get it in the water last weekend, and to the slip. I am going to adjust the carbs a little Friday, and replace my control cables, then I plan on fishing the rest of the weekend.

Whoa! Butch,

If you have some free time tonight head down to the Fond du lac Campground hay hang out for a bit, I'll be heading down there around 8:30ish and the rest of the gang is in and out all day long while fishing.

Hope to see you down there.

Butch,

Good to hear from you buddy. Thanks for letting us know what you have been up to. You sure did not miss anything as far as smelting goes this year. But I must say it was not the same without you.

Keep in touch,

Tom

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!

      Saturday we got beat up by the wind all day long driving around to the usual spots and didn't catch a thing.  Towards the evening we went in shallow and ended up catching 7 keepers in 6ft of water on slip bobbers.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I didn’t have any luck, but I heard others and saw people catch fish.
