Anyone ever run t40-t50 flatfish on Superior?

Recommended Posts

Just curious about these baits on superior for lakers. I have had some luck with them in other areas but curious if anyone ever fishes them on Superior. I was also wondering if anyone has tried them on Lake Michigan? I am thinking about bringing a few along and dragging them around for a few days. Can't be much different then a J-plug as far as action. Any thoughts? Thanks!

they used to use them on lake michigan a long time ago until the j-plugs came around. dont you have to troll them very slowly to keep them working properly? i would skip the plugs all together on lake michigan and stick with spoons and flies behind flashers or even cut bait seems to be working well for some guys. make sure to get some spoons in the glow in the dark variety and get out really early. my dad had some success in 50 feet of water last weekend out of sturgeon bay early and then moved out further as the morning went on. he said the larger fish were caught about a mile and a half out. my sister lost one off the coast guard pier in the evening last week. i guess the water is pretty cold still, even in close.

I could troll a t4 at a wide range of speeds. Not a lot of guys use them, thats not because they don't work though. Sometimes I think a port will get to close minded as to what works. You'd think that the internet would change that. In a way it does but in a way it does the opposite.

I can think of a lot of LS baits that for one reason or another I don't use to often, Flatfish is one of them. Some I couldn't buy a fish on but some did work but just got forgotten about. I don't have any flatfish at this time and I probably won't go out and buy any but heck, If you have some, by all means bring them along and give'em a try.

Thanks for your replies guys. I may just have to drag a few around and see what they drum up. Its been awhile since they have been used up around that area but nothing ventured right? Again, I appreciate your responses and insight! Good fishing.

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.
