It has been driving me nuts... Every day as I drive to work I see the cars and trucks parked at all the common rivers and fishing spots along the north shore. The Loopers have started to congregate at the rivers in preperation for the spring spawning run. I had a couple hours free this afternoon so I headed up the shore to the Stuart River. A guy was leaving as i got there around 4pm. He had landed a nice looper about 6 pounds. He caught it by floating a crawler just off the bottom. I spent about an hour and a half fishing without a bite. It felt good to get out after the long winter. I saw a couple fish rise out beyond my casting range. The river was till quite full of ice. The water temps need to come up a bit to get the run started. It won't be long now. Just one good rain should have the fish moving upstream. I can hardly wait for that first fish. The last looper I caught was a large hen during deer season. I caught her at the Lester River on a gold and orange Krocadile. She scaled out at 8 1/2 pounds. I prefer to throw spoons most of the time. Bring on the run!!!!

Does anybody have a picture of a looper? All I know about them is that they are a crossbreed of some kind of trout or salmon. Thanks.

Welcome Hoyer, thanks for the report.

Fishing the rivers up there is something I have yet to do. I've spent so much time up in that area but never fished for loopers. I'll have to put it on my "to do" list.

Keep the reports coming as the fishing heats up. Don't forget to bring the camera with you, we'd love to see some pictures of your results.
