Hello,

I am planning a family vacation to the Silver Bay area the last two weeks in June. Can anyone help me out with how the fishing on Superior usually is at that time of year? What are my best choices of species to target? I have downriggers if necessary.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Lakers and some salmon. Bring the riggers as well as boards. Never know what they will be up to. Spoons in every color you have and maybe some meat(smelt) & fly with a flasher. One thing about going out of Silver Bay it gets deep quick so you usually dont have to run too far.

I have a lot of time on the lake and this area is great fishing at the right time. I start the first the first week in july in most years give or take but it is all surface fishing with 1/4 once of weight and spoons or Dipsey on 2-1/2 80 to 120 feet out. I run all line counters and run 100 feet out then hook my line to the board there is good coho fishing there that time of year but fish the surface and you will do just fine. You can fish with in a mile of shore as well if you need more help when the time gets closer just let us now and I will now what the water temp is and can help you out some more. If you need some one to help you in the Boat I could make time to help you out as well.

Lakers. I have caught very few salmon on the pond. But like others have said, downriggers are great. But downriggers are ok in June(my experience) I use inline boards. I prefer spoons, some sticks. never used meat, myself. if you can get them, try the Pro king spoons. They supposedly can be trolled, slow, medium, or fast. I have tried all speeds and they seem to work. other spoons you have to troll somewhat fast. yum. fried laker.(smackin' lips). cant wait till spring. I am no pro on the pond but i do alright. just my 2 cents

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.
