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-

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

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.

      Looks to fix the fishing in shallow water issues many guys had too.
