Who's all going to be out on the river? Weather according, i hope to be out Sat/Sun/Mon early morning for a good 'ol walleye bite!

Anyone else going out on the river, or are some turning to lakes now?

I'll be out on the pond Sunday afternoon/evening and Monday (weather permitting) we'll put in at Park Point. If not there we'll prob try the harbor for 'eyes. My Dad will be in town from Illinois so we're gonna try to get on some fish somewhere!

I think Ill have Bill and Al from Midwest Rods out on the River and Probably the south shore Sat and Sun. We will be testing out some rods. If anyone wants to try out some Midwest Rods this weekend give me a holler.

Ill also be out tonight and Friday night. Ill have channel 16 on.

I'll be out on and off all weekend. Since the river is so close, I generally make short but more frequent trips as weather conditions and time constraints dictate. Sorry, no radio in my boat yet, but it's a Smokercraft 175 Ultima. If you see me out there pull up and say hi.

Looks like I am taking some of our owners from Grand Superior Lodge out on Saturday (customer relations trip) and leaving Loonsfoot around 7:30-8:00am. Give me a shout and we can share our findings. South Shore or BUST!!!

I plan on fishing the big lake most of the weekend with the river, harbour being the back up if the wind kicks me off. Steve does midwest rods make trolling rods and rigger rods for the big lake? smile.gif

If the weathers right I may hit the big lake this weekend if not prolly hit Fish or Rice.

Looking at being out on the MN side of superior saturday morning also, with the harbor/lower river as a backup. Hope the winds are kind to do a little trolling on the pond.

Dont have the VHF installed yet, will be in a green lund/90 honda.

Strat, Loons foot is just off east 2nd street in Superior. If your heading out of town it's just before you cross the Namadji river. There is a spur station there also.

The launch is big enough to launch any size boat and it has spots for 4 boats to put in at a time. It could use more parking though. There are a lot of spots but a lot of people use it.

Bill and Al backed out for the weekend so Im sorry no rods to demo. Randy they make all sorts of rods. Just about anything you would ever need.

Loonsfoot is in Superior on Hwy 2 just before the Nemadji River. There is a ton of parking and the landing itself is as good as any around. You need to pay to launch or just get a seasons pass like I do. Saves ya a lot of money. You can get them at ICO on HWY 2 and I think other stations as well.

Northlander (or anyone), have you ever used the "Prop Shop" on hwy 53 right out of town? Are they any good, or is it best to spend the extra 20 bucks in shipping and have solderblooms do their magical work?

This is my first year on the river, and with 2 weeks fishing under my belt on it, only 1 prop is pretty darn good! Just got to keep my eye on the skeg!

I have had good luck in limited dealings with the prop shop. Got good advice from Eric and when a prop I bought just didn't work with my rig he promptly exchanged it for another no questions asked. I dropped off a crunched prop last Saturday and will pick it up soon. I trust them to do a good job but the proof will be when I put the repaired prop on and check out the performance.

It's not badly damaged, couple pieces taken out about the size of the half diameter of a pencil. Unfortunatly, it's enough to cause vibration, and i want to get 'er fixed before shaft gets bent.

unfortunately, i believe they charge the same amount if you have a slight ding, or if you are missing a whole blade.

Do you remember what you paid? It's a prop off a 50 horse merc...so not all that large.

Prop shop does good work but I prefer Jay Soderbloom. 1st because he is a sponsor of FM and second he has become a good friend. He does great work and stands behind his work 100%. You wont find a more stand up guy!

If you dont want to pay the shipping get the prop to me and Ill get it to Jay. Jay is a bit cheaper as well.

Do you know the turnaround time?

(may have to purchase a 2nd prop depending on that)....i know i know...i should always have a second prop anyways.

Woodie I may be able to have it done as I wait. If not it should only take a day or 2. He can also order you a prop at a great price. As you said you should always have 2. Let me know and I should see him this weekend.

Woodie:

The Prop Shop repair of my 115 Merc prop will cost me $55. Turn a round time less than a week. I have a spare prop, so it really isn't much of a issue for me, I just haven't been up to get my prop since it was promised to be ready yesterday.

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers? 
    • SkunkedAgain
      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.
