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-

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

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
