Troutbum - NICE

For me, I got to get away for a bit, up on the canadian side of Rainy Lake for 5 days. Was fun and caught lots of fish. But, now, have been back at it hard here in the bay and out in the islands.

In the bay, Smallmouth are still in their main summer spots, but, I am seeing more and more fish moving into common areas that are summer and fall spots all in one. So, catching more fish in areas now, and this trend should continue until we reach the true fall period out here. For the most part, we are using simple techniques to catch our fish. Jigs with Gulp! jigging grubs, jigs with suckers or night crawlers, jigs with Kalin 5" grubs, tube jigs, Dive to series crankbaits, and drop shots. Also, we pull suckers on lindy rigs as well.

I checked on walleyes, and seems like they are moving again, so no real good report there. It had been good, just have to find where they repositioned too.

Lakers are nuts on the flats right now. 80 to 100 FOW, right on the bottom. I have been catching most fish on attractors. But, some on spoons too. Outer is good too. But, most fish now are smaller in size - bigger ones get a little tougher to come by this time of year.

A few salmon around right now. But, usually, the second week of Sept is when we start seeing a good bunch, with the end of Sept the best for me. Coho speaking.

Out this evening off the Ashland side. Drifted in ten to twelve feet of water with 1/8 ounce jigs and nightcrawlers. I got five bass and two walleyes, plus a few perch.

late post but we trolled saturday near the lighthouse in ashland due to only having 2 hours. Sundday morning headed out to long island at 4am and trolled for 3 hrs and only 1 laker. Picked up and headed over to big bay point and picked up one more laker and had to pack it in due to problem with the humminbird.

Was out trolling sunday Only two hits in the south channel area and no fish landed. We switched gears and went to the inside of long island and began trolling in 15 to 20 f.o.w we landed 1 smallie and lost a nice pike before the wind switched and forced us to head closer to second landing where we trolled 9 to 15 f.o.w and only landed 3 bass and a small perch weeds were a problem this shallow so we called it a day at 6 pm. Just another day fishing the big pond.

Hoping to get out this saturday morning if the weather allows. Any tips on what areas to check out for a chance at a few eyes.

Any truth in the rumor that the Ashland ore dock is going to become a fishing pier after its down?

Hello All,

Helped my brother in law move over the weekend to Iron MI (Upper P). Fished Gile Flowage near Hurley WI on Sunday... Did OK with one 17" smallie, 8 SMB total and 2 small walleyes. Bass on Crankbaits on big Island. Walleyes in creek channels on minnows.

Then the real fun started. Hit Chequamegon Bay on Monday-Tuesday Monday was the best day of fishing of my life. Boated 30 fish with smallest 16" (1), one 17"er and the rest 18-21". Serious Hawgs/girth monsters as well. Fished the wall, Rock Pile and Sand Slough (east side of Long Island). Bite slowed to a stop around 2:30pm when the Bay became dead calm. Went out again Tuesday with a dead calm bay. Fished only until 2pm, boated 9 fish, but called it an early day to return the rental boat.... Highlight of the day was my nephew with his 202 bent over to the max with a 19.5" SMB....

Special thanks to Aron Kastern of River Rock Inn in Ashland WI. Aron's a guide and was extremely helpful on the phone prior to the trip and at the store the Monday morning...

Great Trip. Check out the album below for pics.....

Flats have been darn good the past few weeks. We've been catching fish on both attractors (flashers/dodgers) with spin&glo or flies along with spoons off riggers and deep leadcore sets.

Little tough shore fishing off the island right now, due to water temps. Best spots to try, are for warm water species. The Lagoon in the town park is good for some bass, northern and maybe a few crappie. Canoes there to use if you need to. Really, only game in town this time of year.

Borgy, killer SmallMouth - glad you all did well!!

Eric ... Nope. Only your expertise will save you. Use as light a weight as you can, even NO weight. Don't (or keep to a minimum) any dragging of your baits. Slip bobber's are excellent, esp with long casts. Move, move, then move some more, is the key to finding pods of fish that are out there. Fish any weeds, even if only 1 or 2 strands. Many isolated clumps are out there and are key. Between this info, and what Aron and Jim have told you, is all the info needed to get you into Bass. Good luck. Looking forward to seeing pics of your 5#'r.

Perch are always cruising around the shallows. Look for weeds.

Good luck fishing this weekend!!

Do the perch move into the shallow water near Ashland only in early autumn or are they pretty much in there all year?
