Lake Superior has been ice out for awhile now, and the warm weather has brought out a lot of boaters out of McQuade landing. I was out with a friend yesterday/ We found water temps to be 36 to 38 degrees. We caught an nice 8lb laker on a spoon at 20ft.. We marked a lot of baitfish but the cold and the rain forced us in early.
Great year for coho's from shore also. Seemes like the average size may be a little smaller than usual but action has been great. I've been using white looper bugs cast out on 6.2 gram Raven fm floats tipped with waxworms. A few loopers in the mix but I expect better fishing to come.
