Fished mornings out of the Superior Entry both Saturday and Sunday. Surface temps were in the low to mid 60s as far as 9 miles out. BD110 and I hit it with lines down at 0500 on Saturday down the state line in 120 fow working towards the south shore. Hooked up on a nice king right away and then followed up with a big coho and a nice laker. Thunder began rumbling overhead so we pulled lines and ran over to the south shore. I believe this disappointed BD110 as he thought it was funny to watch me stare at the north shore watching for the bolt of lightening that would sizzle us to a crisp.grin.gif Anyway, we picked up 5 walleyes between 18" and 24" and lost a bunch more on flat lines running 25 to 35 fow. Sunday was a little choppier but the lakers were happy with that. Set up in 75 fow down the line at 0700. Started hitting lakers right away. Picked up six in a couple of hours trolling over the same 100 yard stretch and it was time to head in. Saturday's Salmon and Laker hit a dipsy dialed at 3 out 100' with an 8" E-chip flasher/Glow Iris JR fly 27" off the bend. Sunday's Lakers were not as discriminating. Green Jewel, purple Jewel, watermelon Needlenose, and Opti with LBB picked them up. Walleyes were looking for variations on green sticks run 150' off the board.

We'll be on the water at 0400 tomorrow. Anybody else headed out?

I have to head up to Duluth tomorrow to pick up some stuff. If you can do a evening stint I would be willing to go. I work the night shift tonight and I get done at 4AM, so that is out of the question grin.gif. Give me a call here at home. Call Steve for the numbers.

I was just going to post a Lake Superior report wanted. Thanks Lota. Have you been out of Knife or Port wing lately? I had the wife out on the big lake the other day for 3 hours. She landed a 27" and 28 3/4 inch walleyes. Shes still bragging about it. I keep telling her its a team effort out there smile.gif

Thanks for the report lota, there haven't been many reports yet this year. I myself have only been out once this year and it was my first skunk, I was out of the knife river a couple weeks ago. I am prob going to be up this weekend with a buddy, don't know what port we'll go out of yet though. Hopefully I will have some good news to report this time.

Have you been getting many salmon out of duluth still or have they moved up the shore for the most part?

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
    • Wheres_Walter
      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
