Wheres everyone fishing for the 4th?

Recommended Posts

I figured many of us would be on the water over the 4th and was just curious to see where people are headed and type of fish they are targeting. I'm headed to the cabin in Wisc. to fish the Flambeau for a mixed bag of eyes, pike, skis, smallies and cats.

Croixflats, sorry to hearabout the shoulder but depending on the grade seperation you could be back on the water within a week or two. I seperated mine last year on the 5th of July. had to have my buddies fight most of the fish on Lake Michigan but not this year! Good luck with that.

Thanks, tunrevir

You heading back to Lake Michigan this year. Did you a charter out there or did you guys have your own boat. Do you fish for the salmon or what ever big fish that hits. One of these days Id like to make it out there.

I'm staying local and fishing around the Duluth area. St. Louis River, Fish or Island Lakes. I might shoot up to Vermillion for a day if the bite is slow around Duluth.

Just got back from Kab. I'm staying home. To many people out on the 4th for me. It's hard to get to the launch early enough to get a parking spot at most city lakes.

Sounds like we will get some wide and varied reports back after the fourth! This is awsome! Guys and Gals, be safe out there, obey the laws and look for others you can help out while on the water as some of these folks don't get out often. Keep them coming!

No where, don't own a boat, and if I did I wouldn't even go fishing cuz everyone and their grandma is going to be out with this nice weekend. So I will take the high road and be with the family and tie some flys, get things ready for bow hunting, and fall fishing as well. I've slaughtered my fair share of fish already this spring and early summer, so missing this weekend or the next 2 or 3 isn't going to hurt my feelings.

Staying in town so local lakes. Saturday will probably be Tonka - get on very early and fish while everyone is recovering from the celebration on the 4th and get off before the cabin cruisers start rolling around. Not sure about Sunday.

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
