Up Date, fishing in Bete Grise, Agate Falls and O Kun De Kun Falls

Last week, Evelyn, my 25 year old daughter and I fished for lake trout in Bete Grise for a few hours and came back with a nice 9 pounder (which I did not get a picture of) and the 3 pound laker that she is holding. There’s a story behind the larger fish… I set […]

Exploratory fishing and fishing for pleasure

Yesterday, neighbor Kurt and I pushed off of the dock at Lac La Belle at 9 am for a full day of relaxing aboard the “Fishin Mission.” I had tried, un-successfully to get more guys to go, but they all had some kind of excuse…”…have to work,” “wife is on call,” or whatever else keeps […]

Fishing Up-date out of Lac la Belle in Lake Superior

Lots of wind is causing delays and cancellations of fishing plans and stirring up the waters. Last Thursday, I brought out a dad and son from South Eastern Mn who were here trying un-successfully to fish the local streams for brookies. I guess they’d have to talk to Jim Juntilla to find out where to […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
