Salmon what do they look like well just kidding I have not caught one for two and a half months there just is-ant many around I take my boat out right after lake trout season is done. But sept, is great and you could just get lucky and find a salmon but the laker fishing is great if the wind is not blowing. good luck on the big lake smile.gif..

Tom, we caught a king about 5lbs on the stacker the other day, so he was down 110ft on a meat rig. That sure surprised me.

April might be a little early the fishing picks up when the water temp hits 42 degrees and gets better for top water as temps rise. but you can find lake trout on the bottom using smelt in april and may depending on the surface temps. We will have more info in the spring on what is going on it is fall lots of good fishing coming up.

Instigator...We caught a 15 lb king early last week in front of the Lester, 40 feet down in 115. Nicest king we have had this year. The water was cooler then it is now. I don't know too many who target salmon, rather, run a variety of depths/presentations and hope that they get one in the mix.

Thanks for the info, I have been learning ever since started fishing up there 3 years ago, but still learning. I have never tired fishing the lake after August, just wondering if should try few more trips. Gets harder with weather, and hunting seasons starting up, and working few weekends!! I fish out of a 1976 Starcraft with inboard and same name on back of boat going up this weekend for sure, even though weather dont look greatest.

      With the snow that fell last night, that literally is glued to the ice from the warm temps and light rain; and now seeing more in the forecast, it's sure setting up to be a very dangerous early ice season out there. Even Mud didn't freeze well. Only about an 1.5" a hundred yds from the road on Saturday. YIKES!

      I heard that it was still open 10-14 days ago but with this cold it should be making ice quickly.  I was on a bigger lake Saturday and we had 7-8" on a lake that reopened last week when it warmed up.  I'd be very nervous about going across the lake especially crossing any deep water holes.  The next 7 days should be making very good ice though if weather holds true.

      Good share. I'm really itching to get out on some of those local lakes. I was thinking of trying today but I'm going to hold off now.

      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!
    • Bass Thumb
      That's what happened to mine too.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.
