Is there anything swimming and maybe biting within a cast from a shoreline? Is there always a shot at a looper, just better and worse times? Is it to late for a hope trip? Go out and hope ya get a bite?

The Lester river, French river, Knife river, and Sucker rivers are between Duluth and Two harbors and fishing the mouths of these rivers can give up a looper or salmon. The breakwater in Two Harbors might give up a looper or salmon if the rivers are not running real well. And there are is the Baptism river to the north of Siver Bay that can get a good run of kings, or used to.

The fishing is out there and so are the fish.Being on shore makes it a hit or miss proposition much of the time, but still it is worth the effort.

If the winds finally die down? the pier in Duluth might be worth a try in the erly morning or late afternoon.
If anyone is coming from out of town to fish?
I would check current wind and weather conditions as they change by the hour up here.

Currently 31F winds out of the N NW at 12-14 mph.
I dont know about any of the piers today but the North Shore though windy may be fishable in spots.

I think a friend and I are going to give it a go on the 26th of Oct. A day of exploring if nothing else. Who knows. Start south and work North I pupose. Marine Gen. opens at 9, never been there before. Seems I've heard they're pretty good with advise and looper bugs. Maybe we'll fish the pier in Duluth go get the scoop and explore from there. Are spoons the way to go from the pier? live bait? What about 2 rods from the areas away from the rivers?
I know too many questions. Any advise is greatly appreciated thanks.
Jim

I would toss spoons at Lester, Brighton Beach, any area between Brighton and the French that you can get to shore and toss a spoon and of course the French and stoney point. Cleos and crocks is all I toss and the Crocks seem to be catching more fish lately. Gold/orange has been hot.
At the French dont be afraid to toss out a bottom rig with a crawler or floating spawn sack.
Brighton Beach has still been the most consistant for me.

I spent about three hours down at the French Yesterday (Monday). It was just myself and one other guy down there and there was not a thing going on from shore.

We did see one guy land something in a small boat out in front of us and let it go. I'm guessing it was a Steelhead.

It can only get better and it makes for something interesting to do until Deer season gets here.
Take care,
Tom (BD110)
