Suggestions for Isle Royale??


Recommended Posts

I'm heading to Isle Royale at the end of this week for 5 days of fishing, fishing, an fishing, with some food and rest in-between. Any suggestions from Isle Royale veterans on hidden lakes, structure, or other suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

If you're fishing the big Lake for Lakers, we spool-up with 30lb. Fireline, I think it has 8lb. diameter.

We look for the Lakers in 80-120ft. off bottom structure and verticle Jig 1/2 oz. white twister tail jigs or 1/2 oz. Kastmasters, Cleos or Krocodile spoons. We've even had some on the Nils Master Shads used for Ice Fishing. Use a 3-4 ft. 10lb. Mono leader and a good barrel swivel.

Have a great trip!

Are you fishing Superior or the Island? If you fishing the Island are you bringing a canoe? Chicken Bone is good for eyes and Livermoore for pike.

Thanks for your replies, the info's great. We are bringing canoes over and fishing the interior for eyes, pike, and Smallies (I hope?). I would like to know more about the possibilities of any salmon or trout shorefishing opportunities at this time of year off the island. Right now I have spoons (Kastmasters), white tube jigs, and in-line spinnners (orange & silver) ready for these fishing oportunities. Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Ive taken my 25fter to Isle Royal a few times and trolled for laker's. Usually dont go till end of July. Ive also brought canoes to Mcargo Cove and fished chicken bone and livermoore like I said earlier.
If hiked the island also and its tough to fish without a boat. You can cast from shore for lakers, success can be mixed. What harbor are you getting droped off at? Thats going to make a big difference on bringing a canoe or not. Isle Royal is setup to hike. If your not hiking it your not seeing much. If your intension is to fish and not hike you'll need a boat. You can rent a boat and motor at Rock Harbor. You better get on the ball and start calling up there to reserve one. Another question were are you staying?
