Lake Superior May 27, 2013

Shane and his buddy Nick got out with me this morning before the waves got too big. Hit the Ws. side and found a pocket of warm water. We ended up going something like 8 for 13 with 1 King and 7 Coho's. They were hitting smelt pattern and the Chevy's the most. Could have had a really awesome day but the wind ended up making us quit earlier then what we would have liked. There is just something about waves coming over the bow that just takes out all of the fun. All on top in 20 to 40' of water. Trolling speed was all over the place due to the wind. Nick and his King:

I have not measured any but my guess is around 14 to 17". Next time out I will put a few to the ruler. They seem a little on the small side for this time of the year. One we caught had a nice smelt in its mouth when it hit the plug so they should be putting on the pounds quick.

Thanks for taking us out in the boat Jim! It was awesome to meet you and learn more about fishing the big lake, and catching my first king salmon! Can't wait to get out there again!

The weather has been a real bugger this year. dam wind and cold! Sounds like a pretty good trip though. I'll be out there soon. Just putting the finishing touches on the new Superior rig. Nice to hear there are some fishies finding their way into the boat.

Thanks for the report!

Any one get out today? We may try Sunday morning if the winds allow. Frustrating weather pattern. Weekends have not worked. I may have to tow the boat to work on one of those flat week days and try to poke out on the pond for a late, short afternoon troll.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did.

      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
