I have fished it alot not last 2 years, but can tell you it is excellent walleye fishing, I think the limit is still 2. Has some excellent northern, and crappies.

we usually fish Buoy 7 By the tin shed actually saw an AL LINDER video when he was fishing and the big old tin shed was in background.

Buoy 18 is also a good spot, One thing about fishing there, take warm clothes, it can change very quick, can be 70 in the morning and turn to 40 afternoon all the wind has to do is blow from the lake/north.
We left cities one day was 90 took no warm clothes got to Cloquet and it was 40 what a drop. That was my first time fishing it.

Out in front of Perkins by Barkers island is another good spot it is more towards lake, usually later in year.

DO NOT OVERLOOK THE WATER LESS THAN 6 FEET DEEP.
Drifting with floating jig heads and leeches or chunks of crawlers.
Wisconsin or Minnesota license do not need both.:cheers:

Motels only close by, I am not sure of Resorts, There are a lot of launches just find any map and they are on. The area I stated is just south of the BONG Bridge, as far as buoy numbers once you hit the river they are numbered.
If you exit 210 before Duluth take that to 23 then 23 towards downtown there is a public access I think it is called Morgan park but it is marked.
If you wish to launch in superior that is where I stay lots of motels with good parking. Then cross over hwy 2 and then when over bridge there are a couple Motels close to the Billings park ramp I believe it is called.
There is a ramp right below one of the Bridges in Duluth canít remember name.
When coming down hill into DULUTH you see the river and there is a big tin shed that is ST. Louis BAY. This time of year usually where the action is.
The bait box in superior on hwy 2 can give you info; they are close to Loons foot launch which is close to Lake.

I grew up in Superior and the fishing on the river is excellent. Not aware of any resorts, but there are several motels in Superior right by the bay where you can launch if you have your own boat. Otherwise, there are guides in the area I am sure who will take you out, and you can still stay at the motels. Book early, believe it or not, Superior is busy in the summer.
