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.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
