Lake Superior Report: Memorial Day Weekend
Fishing was still very good with most of the action coming over deeper water mud lines. You can catch fish deep inside the mud as well, however they were preferring the edges this weekend.
Fish are still very active in the upper water column as the water temps were still hovering around 46-48 degrees.
Baits of choice were the Bait Rigs Physco Minnow and the Salmo Hornets trolled around 2.2 - 2.6 mph.
Staying on the school once you find them is the key to catching the Coho. Hummingbird side imaging is awesome for finding these schools and staying on them as well. We made multiple passes over the school and once they had spooked out, we moved on to the next.
Other species are also using these same areas for feeding. Browns, Coho, Splake, Steelhead, Lake Trout and even more and more reports of Kings mixed in! You just don’t know what you’re going to catch.
Overall great weekend of fishing, but an even better weekend remembering all that have given the ultimate sacrifice to allow us to do what we love!
