lake Superior Trout/Salmon help-

Recommended Posts

Walleye_king

I just got a new boat (Skeeter 1790t Tiller) and after I figure out how I am going to mount my Cannon's to it I want to try the big lake for Trout and Salmon.

When do they start hitting? Where is a good place to start? How much water, how far down? Etc... I am guessing there is still plenty of ice so I have some time, but I am getting anxious!

Thanks-

You can fish anytime because the fish never stop biting. People have been out in boats already. Downriggers is the most useful tool out there and can be used anytime of the year. But generally, downriggers will be a more useful tool starting early/mid June and become the most predominent way to catch fish as the season continues.

Soon you will see most people fishing with planer boards for surface fish as the water warms.

Starting is a very complicated answer and requires alot more to it then a GPS location or surface temps.

I already have some boards for crankin for 'Eyes, what sort of lures work best? I have about 200 cranks for Walleyes, mostly shad raps, fatr raps, wally divers, etc... Will some of these work?

All those will work. You might want to try your larger sizes first. I use alot of smithwicks, bombers, as well as all the ones you mentioned and a ton more! grin.gif

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
