Lake Superior around the end of May???

2 posts in this topic

Looks like towards the end of may will be the first chance we are going to get to hit the big lake. Weather permitting, where would be a good place to start?

I have downriggers (not installed yet) and inline boards with a ton of cranks, but I'll get some spoons as well.

As far as the boat goes, we have a Skeeter 1790 tiller with a 75 yamaha 4 stroke. It handles great on big water, but I've never put it on anything bigger than Red- Mille Lacs, so wind may be a factor. Being new to doing the big lake on our own, we are going to start small and get a feel for it.

Will the trout/salmon still be on the surface that time of year?

Which is better, 2 harbors or duluth?

Thanks again-

Michael

Most will be fishing trolling boards or a combination of boards and downriggers. Fish tend to be less deep early (May and June) and go deeper as the lake warms. Just cover a variety of depths and presentations and when you find what works, go with it. If you can find where the baitfish are, that is a good place to start

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
