2 weeks away from our salmon school. I have the info posted in the forums section under great lakes fishing here on Lake Link. Class one is about full but plenty of opportunity to attend class #2. Thanks!

ICE DEPTH
8 inches

AIR TEMP
31° - 35° F

Was out yesterday morning in McKinley. Had one trigger that's it. Was slow all around for everyone. Ice was anywhere from 8-13" by the docks we were fishing. The boat launch will be in bad shape in the next few days.

Gummy worms do, in fact, catch browns. We've been doing it from kayaks for years. We've found the Trolli brand sour ones work the best. It's definitely helped put some fish in the yak on slow days.

I second the Cheetos, got to go brand name.....


I just checked the ice and its eroding very fast near shore and around the docks, my guess is that you will have a very difficult time actually getting on it by the weekend. I'm going to try it Wednesday but will proceed with extreme caution. I think I'm going to cancel my weekend trips, no sense in having people drive in from a far with fishing as slow as it has been for me  just to battle the crowds if we are indeed restricted to fishing the docks.

Smelt also works, if you can find any. I've even caught steelhead on rainbow colored marshmallows. That is different colors of mini on treble hook.

Hair jigs work like a champ too.  Anything that looks like a shad is usually $$$$.

I don't why some people are so secretive about baits. There are plenty of fish. I have heard of guys getting them on florescent orange playdough. Although I've never tried it. Local bait shops are usually more than happy to give advice or what to use. Scroll through any of the lake Michigan posts, not just this one. You can usually find what to use.
