Apostle Islands

3 posts in this topic

I was thinking of heading to the Apostle Islands from Duluth the weekend of the 19th. How is fishing near the islands this time of year?

I typically fish out of Duluth.

Any suggestions would be great!

Fishing can be good this time of year. For lakers, put your baits on the bottom. Magnum spoons, dodger/flashers and flies or spin-n-glos work great. Also, use divers and leadcore to cover the rest of the water column. You never know when you'll go over some salmon, browns, steelies or suspended lakers. Flashers or small dodgers with flies or spoons and clean standard sized spoons work well for these lines. Good luck if you decide to make the trip.

Matt summed it up pretty good.. Fish are now being found in their typical summer patterns and fishing will be more consistant then the past few weeks.

For lakers, try your hands out to the flats. Just through the south channel and east of Madeline Island. 95 to 100 FOW is a good bet to get into some fish. Put most baits right on or very near bottom.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
