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.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
