Lake Superior / Re: Upper Harbor Net
« on: June 11, 2007, 01:40:28 PM »
Thanks Jeff. I was out this morning and it was still there. Only one of the markers is left though. I pulled it up and retied the marker so it would hold. It has moved about 100-150 yards since I first marked it. Hopefully they can get it out of there. Then we will be good to go, until the next time.....and the next time.....

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 Unfair, outdated laws that give them rights that they dont deserve, seem to never be looked at seriously.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??

We basicaly went straight East out of the harbor about 4-6 miles until we hit around 120 fow and went from there. There is still no horizontal temp breaks for the most part but you can find pockets of warmer water and then you will find fish. Temp differences at the ball of .5 to 1 degree can make all the difference. Keep a close eye on the temp gauge. We did not mark a ton of bait out there, except for a few pockets that were at or near the bottom. Most of the Action was in 120 fow or deeper, even in the dark. The fish are suspended, mostly around 30-50 feet down. Stealth techniques were the way to go, though we did have a good number on Dipsys too. Leave the spoons in the box--Dodger/Fly is the way to go down there right now. White Hot Spot/Green Crinkle Howie on a Full Core down the chute produced our biggest fish. Good Luck!

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!

-There is always a story. That King was the nicest one I have had out of MQT in as long as I can remember. Got him on my bread and butter-Silver Streak Black Rasberry/White back on a wire Dipsy. We were in the South end of the Sand Hole looking for Lakers and he came out of nowhere. It was Sunny and Slow,High Noon, and in over 200 fow. Go Figure! He took about 250 feet of wire before I convinced him to come for a boat ride. I had not caught a King in a month around there.

-The big Red Fin in the first pic was a hell of a good time. Got him on a 12 lb Tru Track and a Scotty Release...No Kidding. I was at the Rock and had just boated a fish. As I was getting him in the box my client says hey, look at that. As I look ove the bake of the boat I see a Monster Laker swimming right in the wake, biting the Scotty release behind the ball about 2 feet down. He would strike it, and then drop back, only to strike it again. I have seen fish do that before but never for that long. He was in the wake on the surface for a full minute! I told my client to hit the auto up button to bring the ball out of the water and sure enough, he came right up. I dunked the net behind him and he turned right into it. Bang, a 26lb. Superior Beauty on the deck! After a few pics he went back in the lake.

-The Fish hanging from the scale was 1 of our 30 pounders last year. He was almost 32! Got him on a Pink Rooster Tail, casting just 100 yards fron the lighthouse.

-Its starting to heat up around MQT. It is great to hear all of the "Silver" action goin on. THANK YOU SSFA!! Good Luck Out There Guys.

-Irish Car Bombs Anyone??

If we end up trolling out there it is usually about the same tackle.....but stay way the hell off the bottom!! As you probably know, there are a ton of unmarked humps and pinnicles that are not on a chart or graph so be careful. I wont get into all the colors but without question my best spoon is theSilver Streak-Greasy Chicken Wing-Magnum. I will catch at least 4 to 1 on that spoon over all others. I usually dont mess with flies or anything else out there because you dont have to. If I am trolling the North end of the reef, witch is where I like it, it is from 130 to 200 fow. I usually dont have a rigger below 80 or 90 feet. You just dont have to out there to catch fish and it will save you money on balls and cables.

Lake Superior / Stannard Rock 5-13-07

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!!

If ya find out weather or not it will work with a Depth Raider PLEASE let me know! It would sure be nice not babysitting the rigger everytime. JR said it also may be a different frequency than the sub-troll. I may try to contact Depth Raider or Scotty to see if they can help.

I run boats for Uncle Ducky and starting in Mid May I will be out at the Rock 1 or 2 times per week. June through August 2-3 times a week.  I made 28 runs last year. If there is someone looking to have some company out there you are welcome to give me a call anytime. I sure feel alot better seeing at least one boat with me out there.  We had 8 fish over 30 lbs last year and 3 of those came in May!  Get on it!!
