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.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
