lakers

Recommended Posts

Quick question: Does anyone have any tips for fishing lakers from shore? I'm relatively new to the game, not having done it before, and would like some info on where to start. Thanks ahead.

Well,

It might be possible in the spring when the lakers are in shallow water, but during the summer unless you can cast spoons from shore into 60' of water, you're outta luck.

A good option would be to fish the breakwall at Two Habors. Great chance at lakers, and you should at least be able to get some action from some thing big and finned.

The only way I know how is to fashion a slip rig and thread a cisco/smelt with a treble(in the mouth) and get it out to 40-100ft of water. This is a set-line technique used with one person on shore and another in a boat running the bait out to depth. Then sit on shore and wait while drinking adult beverages. You may be able to cast this off the breakwall and also pitch some spoons at the same time for them?

If the terrain allows, inland laker waters can offer some shore fishing. There are spots up here on Burntside where 30 feet out gets you 60 feet down. Sometimes on a nice contour. Most of these spots would be hike ins with no road access. Breakwall would be my bet as well to get a taste for it. Good luck!

Eng693, to use a treble hook all you have to do is take a split ring and a small spinner blade and attach it to the eye of the treble. While this seems to go against the intent of the law, it is legal.

We used to use that method years ago. But last time I read the Regs I think I read (and correct me if I am wrong) that using a treble hook not attached to a lure is illegal.


Update:
See page 14 of the 2004 Regs. I quote "Anglers may only use one hook. An artificial lure is considered one hook. A treble hook, when not part of an artificial lure, is considered three hooks and is not legal."

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.

      Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish.  Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker.  Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft. 

      Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions. 

      Until next week, 
      Sunset Lodge
    • I must be mad at math, honestly we just lost 4 in a row and weren't good before that and yet we cling to 8th place. We can't even tank right and get a better draft pick. 
    • Borsch posted a reminder in the st cloud forum, so I wont take credit for being johnny on the spot but in 13 days you'all need to get a new fishing license.
    • I put a call into the Wisconsin DNR, they said March 1st license will be available.
    • good for you guys leech!!  and a darn good lookin family too!!!  being blessed like that is darn good!!!
    • What do you mean they are still in a playoff spot. Come on think positive! At least wait until they get done playing the blues today before you start to sing the blues. 
    • Tried to purchase the D season Wisconsin tag i was drawn for yesterday. Clerk said try again at the end of March, any truth to that? I will call the Wisconsin DNR on Tuesday (holiday tomorrow).
    • Well put in a few miles with the grandkids and daughter by Orock MN on Sat.  Trails were pretty nice but there were lots of sleds out and I'm sure they will be pretty beat up by the end of the weekend! Little guys had a great time driving and riding in the sleigh. Hot chocolate and cookies are always a good ride break warmer! Fun day, God has blessed me well.
