I have been a visitor here for sometime. I sure like the site. The people here seem friendly and willing to share so much knowledge and insight.

I moved from Duluth to Eveleth 3 years ago. I am 37 years old,married,4 children, employed with local 633 Cement Masons and Plasters. I have been pouring and finishing Concrete for 15 years now.

I have been enjoying the outdoors since a young boy. Spent many hours after school fishing the upper lester being it was less then a half a mile from the house I grew up in. Remembering walking down there with a full leg cast trying to carry my poles while hopping around on crutches and trying like heck to keep the cast from soaking up the river.

Never can wait for the next season to reopen.

Now that is a monniker! grin.gif Good to have you here with the rest of us sons-of fishes! grin.gifgrin.gif You will get alot out of the site and don't ever feel afraid to ask questions like, "what makes a looper bobber better then a weighted balsa float?". You'll get good answers and maybe some ribbing but this is where the fish hits the pan so to speak! Welcome!

Welcome aboard. I too am a transplant from Duluth the Range. And although I lived on the other end of town, I spent more than a couple hours fishing the Lester River.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!
    • meerkat
      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
