Winter's late, but options for fishermen, hunters abound


A mild start to winter in Minnesota is limiting ice fishing and shutting down snowmobilers. But the void of ice and snow has made other outdoor activities more doable. From late-season grouse hunting to open-water fishing on the North Shore and in the Mississippi River at Red Wing, Minnesota hunters and anglers are changing their patterns to take advantage of the fair weather.

North Shore fishing

It’s a lot like April right now on Lake Superior, where fishing boats as small as 14 feet are working the North Shore for lake trout and Lake Superior Kamloops rainbow trout. Steelhead (catch and release) and the occasional chinook salmon also are being caught. Russ Francisco, owner of Marine General in Duluth, said anglers also have been fishing from shore near stream mouths.
