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

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.

      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅

      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster

      We have caught a ton of 12” Waldo’s in big bay and east. Good to hear it reaches to Frazier.
