Lake Superior June 16, 2013

Randy and I decided a road trip for Salmon as long as the weather was so nice. The day started with a real good bite for me but Randy would have to wait a while. I cooled down and Randy started pulling in all the fish. The water we were working ranged from 46 to 50 degrees. Our total for the day was 7 Coho 3 Lakers 1 Brown and 1 Small King that was released. We went 12 for 13 with 1 lost Coho right at the boat. Randy released a Laker that was anywhere from 15 to 17 pounds. Just a hog!!! While he was fighting that Laker I get a nice hit and we ended up with a double as I pulled in about a 5lb after we landed Randy's. We are not Laker takers so all the Lakers were released. The storm ended our day a little sooner then we would have liked. Today was a day for the smelt patterned plugs. I also caught the one Laker on a spoon down 20' with 60' of line out using a Torpedo.

Usually fishing reports for Superior include a general area or they are pointless.

Sorry if I don't provide you with enough information. What I am trying to provide is a starting point for someone you has not been on the lake for a few weeks and needs a starting point. We fish for salmon so everything we put out is close to the top. We try all depths till we find fish. We also read the water to find temp breaks or scum lines that are always moving. I try to keep my reports as vague as possible because I hate having boats that like to follow in our wake or worse yet mobbing an access that would normally be pretty quite except that they heard there was a hot bite. We travel to avoid people who hate to think for themselves and just want to let us show them were the fish are and how to catch them. I know that you put out some great info yourself and I hope that you can appreciate that we like to be a little under the radar. You are more than welcome to hop in my boat anytime for a day of fishing on Superior.

2dapoint wheres your reports at? Miss um.

They are still around. Just have to look under Lake of Woods, Red and Burntside forums so far this year. Sold the big boat last fall and haven't been able to find a suitable larger replacement yet so I have been chasing walleye around with the 19 footer. Right now I am booked for Lake Michigan every other weekend, but hopefully by July I will get on Superior to fish a couple of the North Shore contests. Still fishing 3 days a week, its even hard for me to believe that I haven't had time to hit Superior yet.

It was nice to shoot the breeze with you guys. The trailer is all fixed up and ready to go. It was something I should have done years ago but just to lazy.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
