I don't think people fish the main lake, but the St. Louis river from where it enters the lake and quite a few miles down is a good place to catch a fish or two. If anyone does fish the big lake I am sure it would be over by the apostle islands and Chequamegon Bay area. I guess that only answers about 40% of the question.

My thinking is the lake holds a world record in several different species. Your chances are worse than a needle in a haystack though. Some of the bays might hold some good pike if nothing else, so I don't think it'd be a complete waste.

Glad to see school is preparing you well, most of us feel that way every day! grin

St Louis River is a really good Fall option. Rivers in general are underfished, as is this. Not saying you'll be alone, but it beats waiting to take a number to fish a rock reef on Mille come Fall.....

The key to the lake would obviously be bait. I've seen pics of some HUGE pike that guys catch trolling for salmon and trout. I gotta imagine with fall rolling in and the salmon schooling outside the rivers, you might be able to go cast at the river mouths and find something. Spoons would be great, a shot at all species that might frequent.

Also, there are some HUGE log piles/jams from the logging days that are sunk, find some of those along with rocks etc for structure, well you know *should* be there.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
