Just in case people haven't heard. Lake trout season will close August 16 for W-2. Bark point east thru the islands to Saxon Harbor
There is a kids fishing event this weekend in Ashland. I will be taking kids out in my boat with the hopes of catching fish. I would like to have those that know how to catch fish in the immediate Ashland area to PM me some details to help make the kids experience worthwhile and memorable.
Thanks in advance.
Reel Island Adventures 1-440-228-5670 will put ya on some fish.
Any one recommend a commercial or private charter/ guide service out of Bayfield for salmon and trout. Wife and I always wanted to go to lake michigan but its too far.

So it looks like this page died. I finally got out for the first time on open water in the bay for four years. I got one real nice splake. Marked a lot of fish mostly surface to 25 foot deep over drop-offs from 40 to 80 feet. Missed two fish, one was large.
66° - 70° F
71° - 75° F
Two evenings, sand cuts way back were 68-73, 64 and lower going in. Been calm, midweek lower pressure, only saw one boated. Not active right now, jerks, swims, chatters, rattles, nothing bit for me. I was in the shallows 4’-1.7’ banks.
water clarity so so. Heading to an inland lake
Not to worry. Weather hasn't been as warm up there.50's and 60's for the most part. Cooler than that some days. Water is in the 50"s as of last weekend
Anyone have a report on the bass in the sloughs? I'm planning going up there with my dad this weekend but I'm a little concerned with how warm it's been that have moved out. Thanks
On the water at 6:15 am out of second landing. Was on a multiple species scouting mission. Could only fish until 11 am. Hit the sand cut... didn’t go way back... a few boats already in there.... saw a good fish right away .. shallow. Casted everything from kietechs, flukes, suspending jerk baits, tubes, caught a couple of rock bass.... moved onto the windy side and found a nice edge ... good chop, spinnerbait.. many small pike. Nothing over 24”. One smallie about 2 lbs. could have probably kept working that edge and found some fish, but pulled out and trolled for walleyes in my spots I had marked from last year. 13 fow, cranks and a couple of crawlers harnesses tight to the boat with bottom bouncers. Never marked any walleyes. Caught some more pike and kept dragging around impaled small perch. Got into a few good perch on the spinner rigs. But might be the first time I’ve been skunked out there for walleyes. that’s what I got.... anyone with any lake trout thoughts would be much appreciated. Going to give that a try this week. Tight lines all ... one thing. Water was 68 back in the cut and 65 out along Long Island and out in the middle. SW wind was blowing pretty good. Hardly any temp variation...
