You can use treble hooks fishing off the breakwall in Two Harbors or anywhere on the lake or off shore except near River mouths I believe when fishing off shore. Look in the regs for use near river mouths. I believe you have to be so m any yards or feet from river m ouths. good luck.

i was reading that you have to be past the first barrier to use treble hooks. someone correct me if interpretation of the regs is wrong. i mean if i was near river mouth i was going to be using a single hook anyway with a slinky.... but just wanted to make sure. i also was thinking about adapting a single hook to a rapala or a casting spoon. I am heading up tomorrow so if i need to stop somewhere special i would like to know ahead of time.

You need a trout stamp if you haven't got one already. Otherwise it's easy to put single hooks on your spoons or other lures if fishing near the mouths of the rivers. No need for single hooks anywhere else on the shore except the places mentioned. I use a 7 foot spinning rod with 6 pound test casting off shore and the breakwall. Try the area in and around the McQuade boat landing also. Check the streams for pink salmon. They should be easy to see when they are in. I usually use small salmon egg sacks with a little bit of orange yarn. They are fun to catch but not that great table fare. I did keep some [fresh run] and put them in a brine and smoked them and they were not that bad. They seem to spawn and die off quick and you can see some of the white on them and those you don't keep. Good luck.

the pinks were running in schools of 4 or more when we were at lutsen on monday. hooked into one but since i was finesse fishing on 4 lbs. test and i was trying to play the fish out it ran into the current of the poplar as a wave was coming in and i lost it. but i also caught two brook trout while i was there. so at this point i am no longer skunked on the big lake!

Awesome to hear you didn't get skunked but the trip alone and being there is the plus. We get the brookies in the spring also fishing for steelhead. good luck.

so i was bored and thought that i would share the pics of the brook trout that i had caught a week ago.

also i was looking for some information on some locations that might be shoreline that i can stand and cast for some fish this fall and maybe throughout the winter. if anyone has any ideas they can share with me that would be amazing.

good luck and tight lines everyone!

enjoy the pics

Those are sure nice one's. For off shore in the fall and on there are two places I would concentrate on. Two Harbors breakwall and the McQuade harbor would be the places. Also the park point side pier from the lift bridge is fished a lot in the fall. Long net required there. Here is a five pound brook trout my brother caught north of Grand Marias and a former state record king salmon. Two weeks after he caught that one a friend of his beat him by 4 ounces. Also some brook trout I caught through the ice off the Gunflint Trail. good luck.

nice fish! I cant wait to get back up there.

I ice fished mcquades last February thru the ice. so ill have to try that before it freezes. and we were going to try the breakwall at two harbors but was also still brutally cold and the wife wouldnt have walked all the way down there. we also tried casting a spinners for a while in may by the tracks there at two harbors.

My eventual goal is to drive to the end of the road on 61 here in minnesota.
just want to try to fish all the rivers. but due to the fact that i live in rochester i dont get up there as much as i would like.

I might be heading up to camp next weekend. pending we actually find a campsite for a night or two.

i am sure by now the pinks are done running, and maybe something bigger might be out there but who knows whats in the cards for the wife and i when we get up there next.

i did have really good luck on the plain hook and worms when i was there so i think i might double the amount of worms i buy.

oh and one last thing I do want to give a shout out to the bait shop that is just off the beaten path up 1 in finland. i think. they have the largest nightcrawlers i have ever seen. and fairly priced considering that kwik trip down here charges 3.75 for a dozen that seem like babies considered to the ones i got in finland.

as always tight lines everyone.

Contact me in t he spring before the steelhead run. I can tell you if they are in because my brother fishes every day. Also some streams north of Grand Marias which we fish in late April into early May as the steelhead run good there at that time. Also inland stream trout lakes in the Finland area both brook trout and rainbows and splake. good luck.
