Hi fellow fm'ers,

I am planning a family trip to the north shore for mid june. My wife knows some folks in silver bay that we will be visiting while we are there so I was thinking something between two harbors and grand marias would be ideal. I am also hoping to get a day on superior going after some lakers. I have a 17' alumacraft w/ a 50hp and i am thinking that might be a bit undersized for superior, so I guess I am looking for a good charter service, as well as good lodging reccomendations.

Plus If you can think of anything else in the area that is a must see or must do please reply.

Thanks,

Kyle Kreisler

Kyle, there are a lot of nice resorts along the North Shore and some decent campgrounds as well. Not a lot of them can be mentioned on here, but search for the Two Harbors Chamber to get more info. As far as your boat goes, they put a small craft harbor in on scenic 61, it is called McQuade. I plan on putting my boat in there and it is a 14ft. with a 25 horse. Of course it will have to be REALLY calm, but I think it should be ok. Good luck!

The only lodging I know of north of two harbors is Grand Superior Lodge. It is a top notch facility with the best food in the state. I'm not sure if that's the type of place you are looking for or just the standard motel. If you are interested in a charter you've come to the right place. Being in the business and knowing the quality of the trips offered leads me to recomend Bill's Great Lakes Charters, Hard Times, and Skipper's Kid (Charter operated by Tom, AKA Skipper's Kid on this website). If you're interested you might be able to get a better deal with your lodging in duluth if you have a charter booked with the charters I mentioned. Check out their websites and if you want more information or have any questions feel free to send me an e-mail and I'll help in finding you a great charter. I'm sure Skipper's Kid will chime in and be a good deal of help to you as well.

Kyle,

Try Sve's Resort, about 20 miles out of Two Harbors, It's about half way between Two Harbors and Silver Bay. They have nice cabins right on Lake Superior, reasonable prices also. They have a boat launch right there or there is a new one about 2 miles back towards Two Harbors. I launch my 16' lund with 40hp, you just have to pick your days, lake usually quiets down toward evening. If it's a nice night you can boat up to Splitrock Lighthouse, great view from the water.

There's a motel in Silver Bay on 61. It's an Americinn or days inn, one of those.

Is that the new giant hotel they just built like a year ago in the huge open area?

      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎

      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
