Enough with the ice fishing already!!! Where do you folks like to get the jump on early open water - either from shore or boat - any species? My personal favorite (like many) is pool two on the Mississippi.

I'm gonna start working the Crow south of Buffalo once the thaw starts & the levels are up a bit. Montissippi Park is nice, unless the river is raging and it takes 1 1/2 oz. of lead just to keep from floating up!

Gosh guys some of the best fishing for Eyes, Pike and Perch of ice season on LOTW is yet to come. Fish open water on the Rainy one day and icefish the pond the next, best of both worlds!

Hey Traveler! you sound like a man that really knows the northshore fishing world-I am somewhat of a nueby but am addicted to chasing loopers and mostly hit the Sucker, but would like to expand my range and check out some of those Wi. rivers like the Brule and others. Maybe you'd be interested in tagging along w/ me on the Rainey some day this spring in exchange for letting me tag along w/ you chasing loopers? If so drop me a line at [email protected] and maybe we can work something out, if not thats cool too. tight lines!

Robert, I used to live in Buffalo. Fished the Miss at Monticello and the Crow in lots of places - fantastic. Now I'm in Burnsville looking for new places. St Croix/Miss always my favorites!

Traveler, We used to drive up to the north shore often Aug-Sept to fish salmon at night tossing big J-13 rapalas at them. Sometimes it was like fishing alligators in a bathtub - back in the salmon hey-day. I'd like to get up more for the loopers. The other place we'd fish a lot on the shore was Stoney Point and the breakwater in Two Harbors. Often really good. You are lucky to live up there!

Redhooks. look for an e-mail for me in the near future, sounds lke a plan. Sturgon46, boy does that bring back great memories! 1987-92 I just lived down at the french river in the fall. Do you remember seeing a guy fishing out of a green coleman canoe?? I was one of the first chasing them in small boats, mostly at night, what a trip! The "alligators in a bathtub" is a great analogy, sometimes I'd be half asleep trolling along and have a fish jump so close to the canoe it scared the daylights out of me. Wish we could have it back... Now I have to drive all the way down to the Milwaukee area to get my fill. At least the steelies are making somewhat of a comeback up here, and theres always loopers.

Easy one, we never put our long rods away. North shore looper fishing, all winter. The southern WI tribs. by the 1st week of march, MN tribs around april 15. Gotta get up and try that early season action on the Rainy one of these years though.

I was up there a lot 82 - 86 less after the kids started to take all my time. We'd see some crazy guys ut in small boats. One gu used to do real good vertical jigging with a hair jig. He used to use a flyrod with a spinning reel attached. Sometimes on the quet nights the salmon would end up swimming behind us - right on the shoreline! Often, the surf would make it difficult to even keep on your feet. That was magical fishing - loved it!

    • 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?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
