shore lakers?

4 posts in this topic

When do the lakers get close enough for some shore casting? I was up there last year and had a couple close calls with em, it was in the summer sometime...I dont remeber when though. As a side note I took my daughter to the north shore last Sunday and we had a blast climbing up the rocks up the Beaver river and catching little rainbows in the pools. I just get a huge kick out of catching those little buggers.

Depending on how the summer goes and water temps you can get Lake Trout as they move in to spawn. The season closes the end of Sept so its a short opportunity for the shore caster.

For the troller its a time when you can get them off shore as they stage in deeper water.

Ya it was in the end of aug into late september. As ST said the season closes end of Sept.

Sept 4th I started catching loopers, steelies and Lakers off Brighton beach pretty good. Sept 22nd was my best day of casting spoons with 2 lakers and 2 loopers and 1 wild caught. Man those babies can pound a spoon.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
