Superior Entry - 7/16-7/17

6 posts in this topic

Fished mornings out of the Superior Entry both Saturday and Sunday. Surface temps were in the low to mid 60s as far as 9 miles out. BD110 and I hit it with lines down at 0500 on Saturday down the state line in 120 fow working towards the south shore. Hooked up on a nice king right away and then followed up with a big coho and a nice laker. Thunder began rumbling overhead so we pulled lines and ran over to the south shore. I believe this disappointed BD110 as he thought it was funny to watch me stare at the north shore watching for the bolt of lightening that would sizzle us to a crisp.grin.gif Anyway, we picked up 5 walleyes between 18" and 24" and lost a bunch more on flat lines running 25 to 35 fow. Sunday was a little choppier but the lakers were happy with that. Set up in 75 fow down the line at 0700. Started hitting lakers right away. Picked up six in a couple of hours trolling over the same 100 yard stretch and it was time to head in. Saturday's Salmon and Laker hit a dipsy dialed at 3 out 100' with an 8" E-chip flasher/Glow Iris JR fly 27" off the bend. Sunday's Lakers were not as discriminating. Green Jewel, purple Jewel, watermelon Needlenose, and Opti with LBB picked them up. Walleyes were looking for variations on green sticks run 150' off the board.

We'll be on the water at 0400 tomorrow. Anybody else headed out?

I have to head up to Duluth tomorrow to pick up some stuff. If you can do a evening stint I would be willing to go. I work the night shift tonight and I get done at 4AM, so that is out of the question grin.gif. Give me a call here at home. Call Steve for the numbers.

I was just going to post a Lake Superior report wanted. Thanks Lota. Have you been out of Knife or Port wing lately? I had the wife out on the big lake the other day for 3 hours. She landed a 27" and 28 3/4 inch walleyes. Shes still bragging about it. I keep telling her its a team effort out there smile.gif

Thanks for the report lota, there haven't been many reports yet this year. I myself have only been out once this year and it was my first skunk, I was out of the knife river a couple weeks ago. I am prob going to be up this weekend with a buddy, don't know what port we'll go out of yet though. Hopefully I will have some good news to report this time.

Have you been getting many salmon out of duluth still or have they moved up the shore for the most part?

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      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.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.
