Superior Bay?

4 posts in this topic

What are they fishing for out infront of the bong memorial center? I am looking to do some crappie and walleye fishing in the Superior area and was thinking of trying the area. Also any tips would be much appreciated.

Eelpout and walleyes with a Northern or sturgion tossed in the mix. Its been very spotty to slow lately. With the crappy ice year(slush) its a easy pull and close to town. Lots of monkey see monkey do. Everyone sees everyone out there and thinks they must be spanking the fish so they join in. Be careful out there and stay away from the channel it will get broken open at least 1 more time I think. Cutting stops on the 15th I believe.

Regular walleye gear is all ya need.

well got out this morning infront of barkers island set up and fishing by 6:45 on the top of the drop off in 7 feet of water. Had a tip up set up deeper in 20 feet where the drop off slowed down a little. Didnt see much of anything so at 8 i moved out to the bottom of the dropoff in 27 feet and spotted only a few fish that showed no interest. I then moved west a ways and still had a hard time even spotting fish.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
