What are the lake conditons for Superior ?

4 posts in this topic

If lake conditions are good I would like to take last trip of the year with my boat.

I have my mother visiting and she would like a nice tour of the lake, but cannot be too rough.

Anybody can let me know how's going to be tomorrow ?

Thanks

I have the NOAA weather too, I just needed to know from people THERE how's the lake.

BTW if you read well it says tomorrow Saturday will have waves 1 to 3 ft, today looks rough but maybe tomorrow won't be so bad. I have a Lund 22ft cuddy cabin, I can take alittle rough water but since I have "guests" onboard I rather stay in the calm areas

Very ruff and big rain today Val. Looks crappy the next 4-5 days. Ill keep a eye out and see if there are a few days coming up that may work for ya. Viking is pulling his boat Sat I think. Lake Trout season is closed now just so ya know.

If you do get up this way let me know.

Ill be gone to Rainy River the 9th - 12th though.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Well that fell apart quickly lol, Looks like starting tuesday we won't see above freezing for a while, I saw lows in the single digits and even a - sign!

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
