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.

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
