Is there any word on near shore trout and salmon action. I guess up towards the Apostles and Houghton Pt. The bay I am sure is still warm yet. I am waiting on the those temps to come down so I can get at fish from beaches and rivermouths. Thanks guys and Josh

Scott,

The fishing has been great this week! After all the rain we got the near shore trolling bite started picking up. Did well on Browns the other day near the river mouths. We have also been picking up a coho hear and there. Still a little early for them though. Been catching fish on Husky Jerks, Thundersticks, and Echotails. Color doesn't seem to matter.

Bass fishing has still been great! Suckers have been producing most of the fish but we are also catching them on Swim jigs and Senko's. Rocks and weeds in 15-20 feet of water has been money lately.

I haven't targeted walleyes on The Bay recently. I have been catching them elsewhere.

~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com Reports: The fishing continues to be good on both the big blue Lake Superior and the Inland Lakes. Bass are biting in deeper water on Sucker Minnows during daytime hours. Early morning and late afternoon into the evening Bass move into the Shallows to feed so you can fish for Bass on artificials and flies. Walleye Anglers are doing well drifting Crawler Harnesses and Stickbaits over the weedbeds. Activity has been best early in the morning and in the evening. Trolling has started picking up in shallower areas from Houghton Point to Pikes Bay. There have been good reports on trout and Salmon being caught.

~ Fishing Guide Nate Baron from Up North Guide Service and Fishing Guide Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn and Bait Shop, 715-682-3232 http://riverrockinn.net Reports: The Lake Trout fishing on Lake Superior this past week has been excellent. Near shore trolling in the Islands and on the flats in 100-150 FOW has been very productive. Flat lining stickbaits over deep water for Cohos and Kings out there is also picking up some nice fish. The early morning bite has by far been the best. The fishing seems to taper off significantly after 11 AM. A good number of Brown Trout, Cohos and Kings are starting to show up in the shallower water now, as they get ready to make their upcoming Fall run. A high number of Charters and anglers have been coming in with their limits. Trolling with Spoons, Flasher/Spin-Glows & Howie flies with downriggers has been the most productive. Anglers are still doing really well off of Saxon Harbor in 40-60 FOW with downriggers for Lakers. Trolling sub-surface Stickbaits with planer boards and dipsy divers is also picking up a fair amount of Cohos, King Salmon and an occasional Steelhead. The fishing should remain good in the Harbor as long as the baitfish are there. Smallmouth bass fishing has been good on Chequamegon Bay this past week. Fishing the deeper weedbeds in 14-21 FOW with Crankbaits, Spinnerbaits and live sucker rigs has been the most productive. Working the deeper weedbeds with Musky size Bucktails and Spinnerbaits has also been producing some large Northern Pike. The Walleye fishing on the Bay has been very good this past week. Trolling Crankbaits and pulling Crawler Harnesses with half a crawler along the deep weed edges from Second Landing to the Lighthouse in 16-21 FOW has been the most productive. There has been a lot of slot fish being caught and reports of fish over 30" all week. Musky activity on the area's Inland Lakes has been very good. Burning Bucktails on the top and surface baits near dawn and dusk has been most productive. Work the deeper weed edges with Bucktails and Jerkbaits during mid day hours. The August Full Moon is here which presents one of the best times of the year for that trophy of a lifetime. Please remember to take extra care when practicing catch and release with the recent hot weather and rising water temperatures. The less stress you can put on the fish at this time the better. Good luck on the water, tight lines to all.

Just a quick up date for the bay, Trout and salmon are starting there move towards the shallows again. Look from 40ft to 90ft most days running dipsies with spoons and cranks have been best for us, not a whole lot going on with boards as of yet. Keep changing colors until you get action then try to change more over to that color style for best action. Smallies have been hitting well most days from the rock pile to long island and the south end of the wall. But still check the weed beds with spinner baits and cranks. As always live sucker minnows are a sure bet for action either on lindy type rigs or slip bobbers just make sure to use circle hooks with all your live bait. Pike have been hitting well most days too! look to deeper weed beds by casting or trolling larger spoons, bucktails and big spinner baits and large stick baits. We have boated some real nice ones over the past few weeks. Walleye have been a little hit and miss most days but fish are still coming to boats and some good ones just no big numbers lately. The action on the bay will start to get rolling soon as the air temps and water temps start to make there fall swing. Then the bite will get crazy from the trout and salmon run to tank smallies and everything in between good times are a coming for sure! We are booking now for fall trout and salmon trolling trips and don't forget about the smallie bite hands down the best bite of the season plus a pile of bonus fish mixed in most days get with us soon for a great fall trip! Tight lines Chequamegon

Thanks for the report Irish Lady!! Don't know why it is that spoons and stickbaits work better? Maybe clear water or look more like the baitfish there? Glad you caught fish!!

Never made it to Washburn, went out of Corny to the NW side of Bark point. We caught a mix of coho, kings and lakers all in 60-80 FOW about 40-50 ft down. Spoons and stick baits seemed to work best, nothing on dodgers/flies.

~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com Reports: The fishing continues to be good on both the big blue Lake Superior and the InlandLakes. Bass fishing on the big lake has been great on sucker minnows. Trolling for Trout and Salmon has been good in the Shallows and Deep Water and all the way out to OuterIsland. Most Anglers are using stickbaits, spoons, bait flies and spin-n-glows. Fish have been caught in 20 feet of water to 150 feet of water depending on water temps that given day. There has been Northern activity along the Ashland Shoreline. Anglers are having good luck on the Inlands with Bass, Northern and Pan Fish all biting. The Bass and Pan Fish are very active right now. Anglers are having good luck fishing for Smallies in the deeper water near the tip of Long Island, the Rock Pile and the back of the Breakwall. These seem to be reported as the three hot spots! Inland Fishing has been good with a lot of fish in 10 to 15 feet of water and deeper…You might have good luck in shady areas and around docks on the shoreline. Roger says, “work the weeds, if there are holes in the cabbage weeds, drop your line and you likely catch fish”.
