has anyone been out chucking spoons for lakers yet this year? i think i'm going to go give it a shot tonight (probally down at the lester), there's nothing like having one of those things smack a spoon or stick on light tackle.

The breakwater at T harbors yes, not the rivers. There were a couple people heaving the hardware at Stoney Point a week ago.

Krocodile spoons are the standard. That and Cleos.

Hammered copper/orange, hammered gold/orange, hammered brass/orange are the standard best Krocs for shore casting for lakers. For some reason these spoons work on days when nothing else seems to, and on easier days as well.

I've also had a few phenomenal days for lakers and salmon off the TH breakwall using the rainbow trout pattern Krocs. I reckon plenty of lakers have learned to eat little steelies and loopers over the years.

The breakwall is certainly more of a drive than Stoney or the Lester or French, but it's your best bet for a great combination of salmon, rainbows and lakers. Do a search for "Two Harbors Breakwall How To" on the search feature. It was a thread submitted quite awhile back if you want a more thorough look at T.H.B. techniques.

Wherever you go, have a blast. If you hit the wall, watch out for building seas. They can go from 1-foot dinks to 8-foot swells in no time with a wind switch. Don't want to get caught on the wall with water breaking over it unless you want to get your name on the news one last time.

Pretty darned close a couple times, eh Steve? If it would ever warm up the scenery gets very easy on the eyes on that wall too. lol

Scenery is a good thing, as Martha Stewart might say. Though the scenery she recently left behind probably could have been better.

Gotta get down to the wall again. Drop me a line when you're planning your next trip.

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
