Keweenaw Bay has World Class Lake Trout Fishing
Jim Ballor and his son Tyler had a great day of fishing. This 20# 10 oz Lake Trout was caught trolling this past weekend on Keweenaw Bay. Lake trout has been very productive for the bobbers in deep water. Salmon has fair. Finally seeing some warmer water in the bays. Lots of splake in shallow waters. Brookies doing very well but you have to put up with lots of bugs. Walleyes are doing fine in the Portage and Huron Bay. Bass fishing peaking on several inland lakes with the warmer water temps. Rubber worms on jigs has been good.
Water temps are cold but finally starting to warm up. Should be a good weekend to fish. Watch the weather. Use good judgment. Good luck. The morel mushrooms showing up. Send us some pictures we'd love to post them.
Keweenaw Bay will produce Lake Trout,Whitefish, Salmon, Herring, and Smelt. Huron Bay will do the same along with a few Walleye, Perch, Lawyers and nice Northern.
Local fishing methods include bobbing with a traditional Käppu (geboo) set up with wire line, a heavy jigging lure, and bait and of course our Unique TeePee tents. This method catches the big ones on Lake Superior. Keweenaw Bay on Lake Superior is known as the Lake Trout Capital.
