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).

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
