Yes it is, Isle Royale is in Michigan waters. Trout season on Superior around Isle Royale is open 12 months a year. waters within 4.5 miles of the island are considered park waters and the park is open April 15 to Oct 31. Are you riding out there with me? If so talk to me before the boat leaves and I'll see if I can give you a tips.

Well if your the captain of the voyageur, then yes I guess I am riding with you. Any tips would be helpful...I fish along the shoreline in a canoe in the colvill area, but I still consider myself a superior novice.

Sometimes I drive, but the office work tends to keep me shoreside, I operate the company. That boat is too slow for me anyway, when you get here stop in the office and we'll talk, are you bringing a canoe or just trying from shore? We went out for a while Saturday right in front of Grand Portage and caught some very nice trout.

I was planning on renting a boat at rock harbor. Keeping my load light and just bringing some of the basic laker tackle.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
