lake Superior Trout/Salmon help-

4 posts in this topic

I just got a new boat (Skeeter 1790t Tiller) and after I figure out how I am going to mount my Cannon's to it I want to try the big lake for Trout and Salmon.

When do they start hitting? Where is a good place to start? How much water, how far down? Etc... I am guessing there is still plenty of ice so I have some time, but I am getting anxious!

Thanks-

michael

You can fish anytime because the fish never stop biting. People have been out in boats already. Downriggers is the most useful tool out there and can be used anytime of the year. But generally, downriggers will be a more useful tool starting early/mid June and become the most predominent way to catch fish as the season continues.

Soon you will see most people fishing with planer boards for surface fish as the water warms.

Starting is a very complicated answer and requires alot more to it then a GPS location or surface temps.

I already have some boards for crankin for 'Eyes, what sort of lures work best? I have about 200 cranks for Walleyes, mostly shad raps, fatr raps, wally divers, etc... Will some of these work?

All those will work. You might want to try your larger sizes first. I use alot of smithwicks, bombers, as well as all the ones you mentioned and a ton more! grin.gif

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
