I usually fish Ont in mid-summer for Lakers because I have a friend who likes to eat them and he lives up that way. The lakers are usually out in 100' +. Several times I have tried fishing for salmon closer in, such as going back and forth in front of the harbor mouth. Never had any luck--no salmon. There is a bait shop in Ont, right by the harbor. Cant find the number at the moment, but you should be able to find it on line. One time in early spring I launched at Black River Harbor and went east, near the next river mouth to the east. Going back and forth through the warmer river water we got a coho, a brookie and a laker.

Does anybody do any trolling around Ontonagon or the surrounding area?

Just looking for any advice.

Please feel free to PM me.

Not really interested in lake trout but more shallow trolling with boards and flat lines for stealhead, browns, coho etc

Thanks for any help!

Well Savage, I hope this helps a little... For steelies in the BC, I've done well from the mouth all the way up as far as they can make it... That said, you should be fine wherever you go. If you're going to fish the SC, I don't know if you are familiar w/it but if there are steelies in that they can only go up to that first falls just above the bridge. There's been times that the SC is better than the BC. In the SC, try that last small hole right before the falls!

HELP,

Since the last post on this thread is getting close to 4 years old I don't know how successful my attempt will be but I'll give it a shot.

My son and I will be packing into the Porkies during his HS Spring Break the last week of March. We'll be camping where the Cross trail and Big Carp River trails meet at the lake. I'll be reliving with him a trip that I made exactly 30 years ago! Can't wait!

MY QUESTION. What advise can anyone give us on fishing the Big Carp or any other rivers in the Porkies? Where are the better pools to be found - closer to the Lake or farther upstream?

ANY advise will be greatly appreciated and we won't be back for 30 years!

Thanks, Steve and (son) Connor

Bassking,

Please keep in mind that the "Porkies" are approx. 8-13 hours away from the main population centers of MI.(GR, Flint, Detroit Therefore my suspicion is that more folks from WI fish there than MI people. Think about it.

I was going to put my report here however it looks like I am only reporting to myself. What is the deal Michigan? Nobody fishes? No one uses this tool? Or is everyone afraid of giving up their secret "hot" spot?

Mirror Lake in the Porcupine mountains, fished for 2 days this past weekend weather was consitant. Does anyone have any info on how to catch the trout on this lake? I tried everything but the kitchen sink and came up empty. Considering the location I would think this lake would would be a great place to fish. Any info would be appreciated. We did fish LOC and did quite well 132 Smallies in 2 days. Nothing major, but allot of fish in the 14" to 17" range. I think it has been a slow year for big fish according to the log.

That's an interesting thing to know. I hadn't even heard of people doing much for walleye there, so I guess I'll bring some walleye stuff along too. Do you remember what you got them on? I'll probably through spoons, cranks, jigs, and erie dearies. Any other suggestions would help.
