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).

Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
