Really sad to say, there isnt a great spot to shore fish around these parts, especially for the summer months. Spring and fall, trout (browns and splake) come close enough to shore to target. But summer is tough as they head out deeper.

Bayfield doeshave a fishing pier near the Coast Guard Station (end of S 1st Street) and in the East Dock Park. Its on the rip rap shoreline. You could cast here with spoons and such and try to see if you land some sort of trout. But, for the Bayfield area, if you wanted to fish perch and get access to one of the local marinas, that is about your best bet for "action".

Down in Ashland you can fish the hot pond area (near the Power Plant) and probably could catch a few smallmouths and or a walleye. Thats if you wanted to drive a half hour south.

Thanks Jim, I checked it out when I was up there and the pier fishing did not look to good . But I will be back to fish in the near future from a boat. I saw lots of smaller watercraft being used when I was up there. Very nice area and the potential looks good. How is the fall walleye bite? Thanks Saffer

Dock(pier) fishing is limited, but in the fall - especially in October things really pick up. Shore fishing with waders can be good and casting from marina's breakwalls can be excellent. It all involves timing though. spoons, minnow baits, and fresh spawn will all work. It really is a boom or bust fishery- I know from experience.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
