Looper/Steelhead Best Times

6 posts in this topic

Guys. I want to invest in a shore-fishing rig as described by stcatfish in the "How to Looper Guide" at the top of this forum.

Before I do so, can you tell me - is shore fishing Lake Superior productive other than in April when fish are staging at the mouths?

Can a guy catch many fish in say - May and June or again in September? When do you guys stop shore fishing for steelhead/loopers/coho?

Usually around now I'm in the rivers but with the low run off this year the rivers are down and with the cold weather there freezing up again, so now is a good time to hit the shores around the lester, french, and sucker river also you might want to try in sucker bay too by stoney point,and in the end of october through out november can be very productive also, actually all winter can be good if you can stand the cold. Good Luck

I've been fishing the shore since the week before saint pattys day. We have done very good this year. My biggest looper is a 30 1/2 in. buck. Biggest chromer is a 28 in clipped hen(released).

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
