I am heading up this Sunday for the day with my cousin and a friend. Wondering what the reports are for the lake. I know a few spots to hit but if anyone has some tips to make the 3 hour drive more worth while I would appreciate it.
Just a nore from another post on the forum here...
A significant mayfly hatch has slowed the local walleye bite. The only fish caught now are coming during low-light periods of the day on Fish Lake in 14 to 16 feet of water and on Island Lake in 30 feet. The weedlines of Island lake are producing northern pike on sucker minnows. Muskie action has picked up on the St. Louis River on bucktails and topwater presentations. Most anglers on Lake Superior are now catching lake trout and salmon near the surface about 12 miles out from shore. Look for bigger pods of fish to be suspended over 100 to 120 feet of water.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
