Lake Superior / MQT 9-15-07
« on: September 16, 2007, 08:03:48 AM »
Finally was able to get on the lake last night and we were not alone. I counted 11 boats in Lower Harbor alone. We ended up 4 for 6 with 3 coho and a King.  All fish were in the 3-5 lb range. I fished Lower Harbor from the light down to the Chocolay. All 4 fish we landed came on J plugs..3 behind a dipsy and one off a 3 color down the chute. Bluberry Mufffin and Chrome/Red head were the good plugs. The dipsys were 40 and 55 feet back. All of our fish came shallower than 40 fow, the last 2, including a BIG rip we had on the SWR, were in 25 fow right in front of the Carp. I kept everything way up, even when we got a bit deeper. I was marking a good amount of fish and most were suspended. It was 51-55 degrees, 20 ft down and the fish were very fiesty. Well after not being able to get out for a week, it was a pretty good night. Hopefully today we can find something with some size to it.....or I'll take some more 3 lb cohos...they made for an excellent breakfast this morning!!!
Good Luck Guys....its winding down out there anglerss

Lake Superior / Upper Harbor Net
« on: June 11, 2007, 09:53:58 AM »
Wanted to let everyone know about a net in the upper harbor that I found on Saturday. I found the cororer stake of a Jib net in 105 fow, 3/4 mile straight off the UH Light. The whole stake was submerged about 1 foot below the surface with the dam milk jugs and Tide bottles used to keep it a float still tied to it. I recorded the location on GPS, as well as the number on the float, and Relayed it to Dan Cook who was to be calling the the tribe, MDNR, and others to report it. When I get back down to the boat I will post the GPS location on the site. I also tied 2 Orange bouys to it and they can be seen for quite a ways. I would sure like to say how I really feel about this bulls**t but I will bite my tounge for now. How many times must this happen, and how much money will it cost us before some dam laws are finally changed. I mean come on, Tide Detergent bottles for floats???? Milk jugs???  Thills could never get away with that sh*t. I just read an article that said the Indians grossed in the BILLIONS of dollars last year at their dam casinos. Any chance some of that money could be spent on some real marker bouys and good anchors for their nets. Maybe update some equipment so they dont cost fisherman any more money. Unfair, outdated laws that give them rights that they dont deserve, seem to never be looked at seriously. This is 2007, are we done paying for things that happend hundreds of years ago?   Sorry if I am ranting a bit but when is enough going to be enough. I know I am not the only one that feels this way..
-----Anyway, steer clear of the UH Wall with gear in the water until we hear somthing back from law. Who knows where the other end is??

Lake Michigan / Algoma,WI 6-6-07
« on: June 07, 2007, 01:58:48 PM »
Got back from Algoma last night and I am ready to go back Today!! The fish are there NOW. We fished Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and ended up 23 for 30, which by my fishing partners standards was below average (He grew up there), but by my standards was one hell of a trip for the first week of June. We broke my only net about 2 feet behind the hoop and had to land most of our fish with what was left, a little trickey at times to say the least. We had 15 Kings, the biggest being 15 pounds, but 11 of them were over 10lbs. Tuesday night we got into some steel and ended up with 6 of them. Biggest of the steel was around 14lbs. and what a show he put on!! We also had 2 greasers, both came on a 5 color in 200 fow??? All of the fish looked real healthy. Our best "stuff" was Hot Spots in Green and White with Howies in Aqua and Mistake Green Crinkle, mostly behind Dipsys and Lead. The riggers were pretty dead. Water temps were mostly 43-45, 60-80 feet down. Fish were found from 15 to 60 feet down in 120-200 fow. There were charter boats at the dock coming back with 25-35 fish per trip. I would say the fish have arrived there!  Screamin Drags, Blood splashing, Scales fiying, Chaos causing KINGS. Gotta Love It!

-Good luck to everyone out in Baraga! Looks like ya should have some nice weather this weekend!

Lake Superior / Stannard Rock 5-13-07
« on: May 14, 2007, 09:12:49 PM »
Made my first trip of the year to the Rock this Sunday. Nothing has changed!! Beautiful morning with S winds around 5 mph. Started out around the south side of the rock in around 40 fow. We could not mark a fish anywhere around the rock so we moved over to the 18 ft reef (Now the 16 ft reef!), and tried some KO's and jigs. A few small fish here and there but thet just were not up on the reef in the morning.  We moved up 3 miles north of the Lighthouse to 1 of my sweet spot and started to get into them. Marked alot of fish on some pinacles in around 140 to 180 fow, that rose to around 55-60 fow. Water temps were 36 degrees on the surface and 39 degrees 50 feet down!  The fish felt like ice cubes when they hit the deck.  My clients were a bit "green" so in an effort to hook them up with a HOG we decided to drop the riggers and make a few passes over these humps.....UNREAL! First fish was 15 lbs. We had 4 or 5 fish on at once multiple times and happy clients. We ended boating over 40 fish and bring home our 24 fish limit. 4 fish over 20 lbs. with the biggest being a fat 26lb. Red Fin. The wind did pick up around 11 a.m. and by 2 p.m. we were heading back in a 15-20 mph "breeze" from the South. Overall a great day on the water.
-I  know there were people talking about going out there soon, so I figured I would post some info on the trip. Good Luck out there!!
