Lake Superior / Thinking Kings
« on: September 12, 2008, 11:57:10 AM »
Hey guys,
Just wondering if anyone is going to be fishing the full moon coming up. Any success?
I'm heading out tonight for the first night trip this year and wondering what you guys have been using.  :beer:
I'm thinking just sending out everything glow: flasher/ fly's, spoons and a couple stick baits. Has anyone been using glow dipsy's, or just glow baits behind the regular chrome dipsy?? I have a couple wonderbread patterns as well. Thanks in advance for any input.

It's the same way around here to fish out in the Apostle Islands. We are lucky if we see ice out there at the end of January. I can't wait though. The 14' footer has caught my eye a couple of times begging to be taken out. Maybe this weekend if there's a cold snap.

New Year's Report:
Ventured out on the Bay 1/1/07. Conditions were 2 degrees and windy, but the fishing was pretty good. Ended up with 6 fish in a few hours, with the biggest being a 28" & 26" Whitefish, 1 Splake, 2 Browns and a Northern. Best depths were 10' - 13' FOW. Caught the Northern jigging with a chubby darter.

12/24 Report
Got out once again by Houghton Pt. did very well landing 12 fish, with the largest being a 21" Splake, with a lot of Cohos and one Brown. Not much size to the fish, but some great action nonetheless. Caught two jigging, the rest were on tip-ups. Best depths were around 20-25 ft.

Went out to Houghton Pt. (Washburn, WI) on Thursday. Fished about 150 yards from open water with great action. Alot of small fish but ended the day catching 12 with a mixed bag of Splake, Browns & Cohos. Largest fish was a 23" Splake. Only kept the Salmon.

Went out to Houghton Pt. again just in the morning before the Packer game (I should have stayed fishing). Ended the morning with 4 fish, (3 Cohos and a Brown) Largest fish was the 19" Brown. Both days I did the best right on the 20' FOW ledges.
If anyone goes out there, be CAREFUL! There is alot of snow on the ice now and the most ice out there is about 3"-4" at best.

Well, I made my first attempt on Lake Superior ice. Headed out on Chequamegon Bay and caught some Perch and a couple of small Walleyes. I was hoping to do a little better, but the ice conditions held me back from where I really wanted to go. Thickness varied from1" to 3" at best with a lot of new snow not helping any. Hopefully next weekend will be better!!  help()

That sounds like a damn good plan to me. Canada hunt followed by fall Steelies, hmmmmm.. I don't think it gets much better than that.  :beer:
Since the big Lake does not freeze until real late over there (or if at all) how late do some of you guys venture out? I feel the action gets better over here the later in the year, I wasn't sure about in your neck of the woods. I know last year we made out into the beginning of January, but then the big lake froze so we were all done...  rant()

That is a pretty impressive growth rate! Unless the natives were off with their measurements which is possible. Either way, I appreciate the update. Has anyone been out on the water lately??? shocking()

Lake Superior / Apostle Islands 9/29 - 9/30
« on: October 01, 2007, 09:24:27 AM »
9/29 - Fished the Apostles Saturday. Went 12 for 15 with 5 Browns, 5 Lakers and 2 Cohos. Biggest fish was a 12 lb. Laker off a Pink Alewife Silver Streak in 150 FOW. Caught the Browns and Cohos shallow in 60 FOW or less. Kavorkian Jim's Flashback, Anuerism and another custom spoon were the best producers.
9/30 - Fished the river mouths until the Packer game going 4 for 4 with (3) nice Coho's and a small Brownie. Definitely smaller fish than yesterday. The Brown took a Hot Steel Minnow Rap, the Coho's took the Anuerism and my custom spoon. Great weekend on the water except for the heavy lightning Sunday morning.

The Odanah tag means it was tagged by the Tribal fishery/ DNR from just west of Hurley. I can guarantee it's not worth much if anything, so I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. It's interesting though that the fish has migrated that far. Most of the tagged fish I've caught and reported the numbers to were always tagged close by from where I caught it, but I'm sure that doesn't mean anything. Did you happen to turn in the numbers? They should tell you how long ago it was tagged, the location and size at that time.

Now be honest!!
If any of you guys caught this fish, who would even have the thought cross their mind to release it? I was one of the guys on this site arguing the point of puting it on the wall. Was I in the wrong? I figured us Northlanders all thought alike.... :moon:

Hey there guys,
I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello. I've been reading the posts on here for some time and they are full of great info. I mostly fish Western Lake Superior in the Islands and sometimes hit Saxon Harbor. I will start posting as of this weekend. Thanks! :beer:
