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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
