Stannard Rock Sightseeing and Fishing the “Hot spot”

The two most recent trips were last Thursday and Friday…Yesterday was too windy to get out. Thursdays trip was only supposed to be out to Manitou, but it was so nice and flat on the water, and my crew wanted to see the “Rock” so we decided on the “spur of the moment” to go […]

Fishing Lac La Belle for Crappy – Too rough on Lake Superior

Yesterday afternoon, we spent a couple hours fishing on Lac La Belle with 2 grandparents and grandson because it was too windy to fish effectively on Lake Superior. We tried near shore in Bete Grise for a short time, but the water temperatures have not cooled enough yet. I had watched the data buoys west […]

Saturday night and Sunday afternoon Lake Trout out of Copper Harbor

  Fished with Terry and his son-in-law on Saturday night near Horshoe Harbor near Copper Harbor. We could see some nice thermoclines on the sonar at about 140 feet below surface, so we fished below that. 3 Lakers in a couple hours of “rough seas” fishing was not bad. Mark, the son-in-law caught the first […]

Fishing summary out of Copper Harbor for lake trout and coho salmon

Wednesday morning I was supposed to have a charter in Bete Grise, but the weather was not good, so we re-scheduled it for Thursday morning. Since I had several charters to do out of Copper Harbor later that day and Friday, I offered to bring them around the point and fish along the way. Fishing […]

Lighthouse sightseeing trip to Huron Island, Granite Island and Stannard Rock

I had several charters to see lighthouses, some with serious lighthouse enthusiasts and some casual tourists who just wanted to see the local sights. One was a 135 mile trip that I wrote a little about before, but I did not have a chance to post pictures until now, on this rainy morning. Mitch and […]

Past 2 Days of fishing on Lake Superior for Coho and Lake Trout

Yesterday we fished with a family of 4 from Traverse City and had a nice day on the water, with very flat seas. The weather was warm and sunny and although we fished for several hours, we only managed to boat 2 small lake trout. My strategy was to go directly to one of my […]

Trolling for lake trout on Lake Superior on 8/7/10 With Brighton Couple and Seattle Man

Departed at 8 am this morning with 3 “Golden Years” folks with the sun shining and fairly calm waters. Had a little chill in the air and heavy dew, but the forecast was good. Fished out from Bare Bluff for a while with no action, but when we hauled in to move, we picked up […]

Sightseeing with a little trolling for lakers mixed in near Keweenaw Point

A couple of windy days kept us off of the water, but early today, trolled in close for Coho but had no luck. The boys wanted to try their “hot spot” in the channel, so we stopped therefor 20 minutes and they caught several rock bass. (I hope they remembered to empty them out when […]

Stannard Rock Fishing for trophy Lake Trout – Spur of the Moment Trip

This morning we met at 5:30 am at the Lac la Belle launch dock with the intent to fish in Bete Grise for lake trout, coho, steelhead and/or king salmon (chinook). As we left motored out to my favorite spot, I mentioned, on a whim, that we could fish at Stannard Rock for the day […]

Caught 21 total in our Early morning fishing for lake trout in Bete Grise, Keweenaw Peninsula

Left the dock at 6:10 this morning with 2 of my boys as deck hands, John and Bill. We went directly out to the lake trout fishing grounds, since the Coho fishing has been slow lately. Started catching fish almost right away, got slow for a while as we moved off the “spot”, but getting […]
