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

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
