Lake Superior / SSFA Fundraiser Spring Derby
« on: December 28, 2006, 02:54:40 PM »
At our last board meeting we were thinking about ways to come up with the remainder of the money needed to finish the fish cleaning station.  We have been receiving some money through private donors but not enough, at this point, to purchase the grinder/table.  We (SSFA board) came up with the thought of a spring derby.  Nothing fancy or complicated, just quick and easy!  At our last board meeting (Dec. 19th) we came up with 6 boats willing to fish it, for sure.  I'm sure there are LOTS more out there willing too also. The tentative idea is to have it be $50 per boat (members only), biggest fish takes 1/2 and the club gets 1/2.  Very simple!!  It would probably be the first or second weekend in May.  Most of us would probably be fishing those weekends anyway!  We would like to get this fish cleaning station up and running this spring/early summer, this is one way to get us closer to that goal!  What do you guys think?  Who can we count in??  Any suggestions would be great!!  Is $50 per boat enough or should we have it be $20/$25 per man!?  You can email me personally, if you don't want to post your thoughts/suggestions on this forum.

Thanks......  ;D

Lake Superior / South Shore Fishing Association Meeting
« on: December 06, 2006, 10:32:16 AM »
The SSFA will be holding a membership meeting on Tuesday December 12th at 7:00 at Wahlstrom's Restuarant in Harvey.  You may have seen the commercials on T.V. lately.  We are 150+ members strong right now but we need as many members as we can get.  Anyone who fishes in Lake Superior should be a member.  It's only $25 (minimum) per year to join.  This year we are including a membership card that is good for $$$$ off purchases at Casualties Skate & Snow (Mqt) and Wilderness Sports (Ish) all year.  If your a SSFA member you will get $$$$ off everytime you make a purchase at these 2 stores.  What a great deal :woohoo:   We have done alot with the salmon plants over the past 4 years and are going to continue to do so.  One thing to remember is the fish in Lake Superior travel in a counter-clockwise direction, meaning alot of our fish end up in AuTrain and Munising Bay.  We need to get more members from those areas, too!  So if you fish those areas as well as Marquette, you should sign up to help us make the fishery even better.  We need all the members we can get so, please, come to Wahlstrom's on Tuesday December 12th at 7:00 and see what we are all about.  Come enjoy a few  :beer: and talk fishing with us.

Lake Superior / Au Train Ramp?
« on: October 10, 2006, 09:22:57 PM »
The ramp in Au Train was suppose to be redone this summer.  Does anybody know or heard anything on why nothing has changed over there.  I know there are some guys from Munising/Au Train on this site and thought you guys might know something about this.  I first heard it was going to happen in May then that changed to sometime this summer.  I go by there every week and nothing has changed.  I was just curious if anyone knows anything about this project.  I really like to fish there but it can be tough to get my boat in and out somedays.  The plans I heard for it sound great, hopefully it will get a needed facelift. ;D

Lake Superior / Munising Salmon?
« on: September 05, 2006, 03:22:45 PM »
Has anyone been fishing Munising for salmon lately?  I know the coho start to move in to the bay this time of year and I was hoping somebody would have a report(good or bad).  With the price of traveling these days it would be nice to get some sort of a report before trailering my boat down there.  I would like to give Munising a try a couple of times before the boat goes into storage in a few weeks.  Thanks in advance. :)

Lake Superior / SSFA link?
« on: August 23, 2006, 02:40:23 PM »
Hey Jeff or Brett, do you think we can get the South Shore Fishing Associations web site linked up to UPangler?  I think it would help the group out alot for easy access for potential members.  It would also help out people trying to find  info throughout the year. Just a thought! 

Lake Superior / Tournament Trail in Grand Marias!!
« on: July 18, 2006, 11:37:32 AM »
How many of you are fishing in the Tournament Trail event in Grand Marias on Aug. 5th and 6th?  Many of you may not even know about it!  Check them out at www.tournamenttrail.net.  They are run very, very well and are the closest thing to the "Big Time" in the salmon and trout world.  I'll be there!  You should be there, too!

Lake Michigan / Cedar River report!
« on: July 03, 2006, 06:39:34 PM »
   Well, we fished Cedar River sunday evening and monday morning.  On sunday went 2 for 4, both fish being in the 11-12 lb range. We fished from about 5:30 to 9:30.  Marked lots of fish towards dark but left a little before dark to get in to tend to our 2 week old girl on shore with my sister at the hotel.  On monday, we went 3 for 4.  We got the line in about 5:45 (late I know, about 4:30 would be better) and mark alot of fish for the first 2 hours and boated all 3 fish before 7:30.  2 fish were 12 & 13 lbs and the other was 3lbs.  5 out of the 8 hit were either on dodger/fly or dodger/meat combos.  I thinks running a few of the combos at a time, is why we did better then most in Cedar River over the weekend.  The launch is great & FREE, lodging and camping are available and the fishing is good and only gonna get better.  Also the most boats we saw at one time was 6, from one horizon to the next.  All and all a great time, we'll be back soon!

Lake Michigan / Lake Michigan?
« on: June 24, 2006, 10:28:11 PM »
How was Lake Michigan this weekend, boys?  Just wondering how everybody did down in Fairport or other hotspots in Lake Michigan.  Was it  :swear: or was it  :woohoo:?


Lake Superior / Marquette on Sat. (6/24)
« on: June 23, 2006, 10:49:42 AM »
   Who is all fishing out of Marquette on Saturday?  I'm sure there are a few guys heading south to Lake Michigan but hopefully there will be a few guys here in Mqt fishin'.  I'm gonna head down east to catch some grease with my dad and 7 year old nephew.  Who know what else we may catch, hopefully a nice bonus fish of some sort.


Lake Michigan / Cedar River, Manistique and Fairport!
« on: June 20, 2006, 11:47:31 PM »
   Well it sounds like a few guys have been down giving Fairport a try.  Great posts Randy, the info is VERY much appreciated!  Has anybody tried or heard anything about Manistique or Cedar River.  These are both real good ports and take less time and gas to get to.  Not much but enough to add up over a season of chasing salmon.  The marina is great in Cedar River and there is some lodging available.  I think if enough guys went there we'd have a great time.  If anyone hears anything from these ports PLEASE post the info.  Thanks!!     :beer:


Lake Superior / Tournament Trail in the U.P.
« on: June 07, 2006, 08:58:13 AM »
If any of you know what the Tournament Trail is all about then you'll be as excited as I am to know they are having any event in Grand Marais.  Its Aug.5-6, 2006.  Lets try to get as many boats there as possible to show them that the U.P. is a great place to have an event.  I got an e-mail from Fred (tournament director) saying they planned it to late to get it in the magazine but they are really hoping it will get a good showing.  He asked me if I could help him promote it up here to make it a success.  So thats why I'm posting on here, to try to let everybody know about it!   He also said, its kind of an experimental event for the U.P.  I know its not the best place to experiment in the U.P. but if it gets a good turnout they will look to have more up here in other locations.  For those of you who are unfamilier with the Tournament Trail, its the salmon worlds equalivilant to the biggest Bass & Walleye events around.  If salmon tournaments are ever going to be as big as those are (T.V. coverage, major sponcers, etc.)  this is the circuit its going to happen with.   If you have never fish a Tournament Trail event before, here is your opportunity.  Granted most of the "Big Guys" won't be there like they would be downstate, its still a great chance to get a little taste of what its all about.  I fished 1 event last year and am planning on 3 events this year.  We should do everything possible to make it happen in the U.P. at least once a year.  Check them out at www.tournamenttrail.net
