8 posts in this topic

I have eheard that in the fall there is a good shore bite in Algoma? I would like to try fishing from shore. Does anyone know when that fall bite starts?

Typically it is the third weekend in September that things around the pierheads start to heat up. You can work thundersticks, rattleraps, spoons and even spinners for them. I have had my best luck tossing rattle raps and t-stick jrs. You can even fish with mini marshmellows if you want but they have to the stay puff brand.

A few fish will be caught starting now with the fishing picking up the farther into Sept. it gets. The best fishing will be low light conditions and cloudy days. A thunder shower to pulse a little flow in the river helps. An onshore wind to dirty the water helps. Don't forget the 10' long landing net. You can either lay your fish on the breakwall or make a 20' stringer out of weed whacker line to keep them in the water. Most evenings there will be a few people fishing, if there's a bunch of people, then fish are being caught. Also a head lamp comes in handy if your alone - one hand for the net, one for the rod leaves none for the flashlight. Tunrevir has good info for baits - I'll add kastmasters/champs and X-raps.

They are starting to pick up a few fish off the piers and in the harbors. I had a friend that was out 2 weeks ago and things were slow but they picked up a 20 pouinder just out from the harbor in 30' draging stick baits. With the cooler temps things should be picking up nicely.

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
