good question...can't think I've ever heard of it happening. Splake, browns and rainbows for sure, both inland, and the unspellable bay by washburn/ashland:) Even a couple harbors along lake MI. I'd think they might get some incidential kings in one of those fisheries. It'll be interesting to hear if anyone has targeted them though... Maybe in Nipigon bay??

Lake Michigan I would think. Superior has not been managed for kings in years. I don't know where there is ice on Lake Michigan, but population wise you would find them easier there.

Plenty o cohos in Superior though!

We don't fish them during the winter through the ice. After the mature 5-year olds run the river to spawn, all of the non-spawners move out to deep water. In most of Lk MI, to get out to deep water, you have to go out 5-10 miles. They fish them by boat somewhat do no ice to speak over.

I have heard of people targeting kings on the Missouri River lakes (Oahe and Sakaweja), but that was about 8 years ago when the water was way up.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
