Lac La Belle and Lake Superior Fishing Up-date

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

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 in search of the big one.
I didn’t find any big fish, with the largest at 5.5 lbs, but the numbers were pretty good as I landed 13 total. Fishing as the lone ranger, I kept my limit of 5 and headed in.
Recently, I had retired captain Mel and his firefighter friend Ron on the big lake and we had a good time catching 11 lake nice Lake Trout on a flat lake. Several came in on a meat pole with a herring dodger and a home made spin and glow that I buy the parts for and tie for use on my charters.

Yesterday, I had a party of 6 adults here for FinnFest who wanted to fish Lac La Belle for some good tasting fish (not to say lake trout aren’t… our trout are VERY good tasting fish). We fished with tubes, dare devils, night crawlers, small suckers, perch, jigs with crawlers, bobbers, crank baits of various diving depths, Rapalas, buzz-baits and some jerk-baits on spinning rods with 6 lb test line. the only thing we didn’t throw out there was spinner-baits. There was a mixture of fish caught… 5 perch, 1 crappie, 3 pike, 2 or 3 small-mouth bass, 1 bluegill and even a 4 inch sea lamprey came in on a fish.
