Apostle Islands

3 posts in this topic

I was thinking of heading to the Apostle Islands from Duluth the weekend of the 19th. How is fishing near the islands this time of year?

I typically fish out of Duluth.

Any suggestions would be great!

Fishing can be good this time of year. For lakers, put your baits on the bottom. Magnum spoons, dodger/flashers and flies or spin-n-glos work great. Also, use divers and leadcore to cover the rest of the water column. You never know when you'll go over some salmon, browns, steelies or suspended lakers. Flashers or small dodgers with flies or spoons and clean standard sized spoons work well for these lines. Good luck if you decide to make the trip.

Matt summed it up pretty good.. Fish are now being found in their typical summer patterns and fishing will be more consistant then the past few weeks.

For lakers, try your hands out to the flats. Just through the south channel and east of Madeline Island. 95 to 100 FOW is a good bet to get into some fish. Put most baits right on or very near bottom.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
