Coho Salmon, Lake Trout and Small Mouth Bass Fishing Up-Date

  Sunday today, rain and wind will keep me on (wet) land today instead of on the water. Coho Salmon have been active on pink, black and green spoons as well as a spin and glow every now and then. Pulled in a Coho from down deep at 100 feet, but mostly on the surface […]

“Get the net!!” (Who needs a net??)

We’re seeing some Coho Salmon among the Lake Trout and Small Mouth Bass lately, although with the low pressure we saw on Saturday, fishing was a little slow with Dr. Mike. That day we caught a couple Coho, but couldn’t catch a trout to save my life! (well, maybe we could have given more time). […]

Self Decorated Lures

Most of you know that I make a lot of my own fishing lures for trolling the Lake Superior waters for lake trout, salmon and steel head as I have published a blog on tying a spin and glow used to fish for lake trout and salmon behind a herring dodger. See this post for […]

Fishing and cruising Lake Superior in the Keweenaw

It’s been quite a while since I wrote on this fishing blog because I have been out on the water so much. That’s what I’d rather be doing anyway… (typing on this contraption isn’t my most favorite past-time). Charters have been so busy that I haven’t even had time to go pleasure fishing on an […]

Lac La Belle and Lake Superior Fishing Up-date

Last Saturday I participated in a the Longest Day tournament out of Lac La Belle, Copper Harbor, Eagle harbor and Lake Medora. I tried for Walleye for the first hour in the “Belle” with no luck, then out to deep water in Lake Superior trolling for Lake Trout in 150 to 220 feet of water […]

Lac La Belle for Bass & Lake Superioer Fishing

This season started off slow with the late melt, in fact I have yet to launch my Fishin’ Mission… it’s all ready after spending the whole day there yesterday cleaning and making some minor repairs. About a week ago Ken and I fished at South Entry, then neighbor Kurt and I went again. I have […]

Fishing Show (again) and Why YOU should GO!

What can you learn at the Ultimate Sport Show in Grand Rapids this coming weekend? You might ask, what if I just like to fish for walleye? Or small mouth bass? Or lake trout? Or salmon? Or what if I just like to fly-fish? You can learn quite a lot, actually… even the most seasoned […]

FRESHLY Cooked Fish

Have you ever caught lake trout or salmon on a charter and took the fish home, or back to your hotel and wished you had a way to cook and eat it when it’s still fresh? After all, that’s the best time to consume any fish. Or have you tried to cook your small-mouth bass […]

Dispelling the Myth About Eating Lake Trout

Last summer, a potential charter client called and said he wants to do a charter,… “but does not want to fish for lake trout.” When I asked him why, he said because he doesn’t, and won’t, eat them. I questioned him further and found that he had trout from Lake Michigan and they were very […]
