A quick Superior Report

13 posts in this topic

Get out there if you can!!!

Got out at 6:30am this morning, solo, daughter decided not to join me. I ended up catching up with a couple other boats I was to meet up with and worked a pattern with them outside the Superior entry.

I myself in the Ballz Draggin with 3 lines in the water limited with 3 coho and 2 lakers.

The Screwball landed 14 mixed fish.

The Balls Deep landed 17 mixed fish, 1 whitefish.

We were all back on the dock by noon.

Lure notes:

Purple Challenger

Grey Bomber w/ pink spots

Glow Firetiger Mean Streak

Depth:

50 FOW early working to 90 as it warmed.

I'll jump in with our report for Monday, 5/28

Our of Loon's Foot Landing with lines down by 7:00. First laker in the boat by 7:11.

Overall, 8 for 11 (5 lakers, two coho and one king) with all but two coming off the boards or flat lines.

Two fish hit a 57 chev in the propwash (coho and a laker).

Two fish hit a clown ripstick, one on a pink black dots bomber and one on a chartruse ripstick.

The lone king was on a firetiger bomber 40 ft out on a dipsey on a #3 setting, and a laker came 40 ft down on a downrigger on a black/white proking.

Not bad for the first morning on the water for the season.

Good fishing indeed. We fished the big lake for 5 hours yesterday morning and landed 16 fish. Caught fish on the top anywhere from 17ft out to 100ft. Hot sticks for us were purple and gold/orange.

I will be out there again on Fri and Thur. Most likely by myself. Good luck everyone.

copman, welcome to HSO/FM.

I was hoping to get out this weekend but the dang fog has got me thinking twice. Perhaps at a later date we can hookup. I will be around Canal Park tomorrow afternoon and could stop and shoot the bull.

I was able to make it out this afternoon for 4 hours after the fog lifted a bit but it was rolling in and out. Was stuck on the mn side because the guys I had with only had Mn lic. Went 3 for 4 with 2 nice kings and a laker.

I'll be back out there tomorrow if the fog and wind allow it. My boat name is "never enuff"

Surface Tension, that would be great! Even if we can't get on the water it would be great to find out what else I need to get for a good set-up and B.S. for a bit I really would like to get out early Saturday morning for a bit...my place is about 2 blocks past the lift bridge on the lake side...I'll be there shortly after 5:00 p.m. tonight. Give me a call (715) 651-6748

Thanks a ton! Tom

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
