10/8/10 – There are lots of fish in Cook County lakes, the trick is to know where they are and how to catch them. WTIP wants to help fill out your stringer by posting a weekly report on what’s biting and where.
GRAND MARAIS AREA
Our fishing expert, Jon Muhich of Buck’s Hardware, says fishing is very slow. Some diehard anglers are trying sucker minnows and fathead chubs.
There are some reports on Saganaga that WALLEYES were being fished at 50 feet with a jig and minnow. You probably could find fish a bit shallower but start out fairly deep like 25 to 35 feet.
SALMON and LAKE TROUT are being found at the mouths of the rivers such as Cascade, Poplar, and Temperance.
Crawlers continue to produce RAINBOW TROUT in 18 to 23 feet at Kimball Lake and in 22 to 25 feet at Leo Lake.
