lakers

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."

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
