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.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.

      First off I am not a waterfowl hunter, so this info is second hand.

      Here in the Morrison/E.Todd cty area, the hunt really seemed slow considering the weather conditions.  Although a few birds were shot early in morning the day seemed slow by most accounts around here.

      Good luck to all.
