I like spring when they are all in shallow and on top. Pretty easy to find and catch. Google lake superior charters and you will get all the info you need. All the captains that are still chartering out of Duluth are pretty good.

Happy Hooker is a FM sponsor and knows his stuff. I would recomend him 1st and then his son still runs Hooker 2 I believe.

Thanks for the info, I was already looking into Happy Hooker, good to get a positive response for H.H., we are trying for a mid June trip at this point, how's the fishing then?

Hey Can't catch em, welcome to FM, glad to have you here. Lengby's a LONG way from Lake Superior. When I lived in G.F. I went past Lengby all the time to and from the cabin near Bemidji. grin.gifgrin.gif

If you haven't been on the Happy Hooker Web site, you can find it here.

Can't catch em, welcome aboard.

Mid June is a very good time to get a mixed bag of trout and salmon on this end of the lake. Can't go wrong with Happy Hooker.

You'll most likely be fishing tighter to town and have a chance to catch a bunch of fish but size may be a bit lacking (2-6 lbs)in june. If you want a chance at a trophy trout (20+lbs) august is the time. You'll also have a better crack at some kings starting mid august. Coho might be around for your june trip and if you hit a pod of those it can get crazy but again those are lacking in size (1-5 lbs). They are however the finest eating fish in the lake. Happy Hooker I'm sure would provide you with a great trip but I also have to recommend Bill's Great Lakes Charters, Hard Times, and Skipper's Kid. All great guys/crews and excellent Lake Superior fishermen. Good luck!

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
