|January (Ice Fishing)
A Great Month For Near Shore Fishing Of Browns, Splake, Coho, Whitefish,
Trophy Walleyes, And Herring. Either In The Apostle Islands Or Chequamegon
Bay. Also, This Is The Start To Our Deep Water Fishing Of Lake Trout In The
February (Ice Fishing)
Most Time Is Spent Fishing The Deep Water Of The Apostle Islands For Lake
Trout. Chequamegon Bay Has Slowed Down Fishing Wise Along With The Near
March (Ice Fishing)
We Are Still Fishing Deep For Lake Trout, But The Near Shore And
Chequamegon Bay Fishing Has Resurrected. Also, This Is An Exciting Time To
Fish Steelhead (Rainbow Trout) In Shallow Water Near River Mouths. Lake
Trout Fishing Is Usually Done By The Second Or Third Week Of March And We
Concentrate On Shallower Species.
Ice Out Is Usually Mid-April, But We Can Still Be Fishing On The Ice Near
Ashland On Chequamegon Bay. As The Ice Leave, In The Apostle Islands First,
We Start Working The Shorelines For Exciting Brown Trout, Splake, Coho, King
Salmon, And Steelhead Action. This Is Also A Great Time For Trophy Lake Trout
In The Apostle Islands. Also, We Fish Pre-Spawn Walleyes Along With A Shot At
Post Spawn Pike In Chequamegon Bay. A Great Month For Action For Trout
And A Shot At A Trophy Walleye.
May (Open Water)
SmallMouth Bass Season Opens Again And The End Of May Is A Great Month
For Huge Numbers Of Our Famed Bass, Either Pre-Spawn Or Spawn. Walleye
Fishing Is Still Great Along With Near Shore Trout And Salmon. The St. Louis
River Walleye Season Opens With A Chance At Good Numbers Of Fish Along
With Trophy Potential. The End Of The Month Musky Season Opens And We
Offer Trips For Exciting Crappie And Bluegill Action.
June (Open Water)
SmallMouth Fishing Is Still Very Good For Pre, Post, and Spawn Smallies. We
Can See Upwards Of 30 Or More Fish A Day. Walleye Fishing Is Still Great,
Including Chequamegon Bay, St. Louis River, And The South Shore. Lake Trout
Fishing Picks Up With Good Numbers Of Fish. Musky Fishing Also Is Getting
Better Along With Great PanFish Potential.
Open Water Trolling Tactics Are The Name Of The Game For Most Species
Now. Lake Trout And Walleyes. From The Apostle Islands To Chequamegon Bay
To The South Shore. Action Can Be Great And The Fish Are Usually Feeding
Heavily. Bass Fishing Moves Off Shore But Continues To Be Good. Musky Are
Now Feeding Heavily With Warmer Water Temperatures.
August (Open Water)
The Dog Days Of Summer Have Arrived. Lake Trout Fishing Is Still Going
Strong Along With Good Numbers Of Walleye And Bass. The End Of August
Shows The Early Stages Of Any Signs Of King Salmon Coming To The Rivers To
Spawn. Bass Are Still Off Shore And Are Feeding Heavily.
September (Open Water)
The Water Is Beginning To Cool On All Waters Of The Area. We See A Surge of
Lake Trout Starting To Move To Spawning Areas, As The Season Closes At The
End Of The Month. Smallies Are Starting To Feed Heavily As The Month Winds
Down. Great Pre-Turnover Topwater ActionMusky. King Salmon Are Staging As
October (Open Water)
Most Hunters Are In The Woods And The Lakes Seem Empty. But, This Month
Can Be One Of The Hottest Fishing Months For Near Shore Trolling Action For
Browns, Splake, Coho, and Steelhead In The Islands And Near River Mouths
Areas. Lake Trout Season Is Now Closed But The Smallies Are Really Putting
On The Feed Bag. Musky Fishing Is Good, With Sucker Fishing Starting With
The Cooling Temps. Excellent Time Of Year To See The Fall Colors And Enjoy A
Great Day on The Water.
November (Transition To Open Water To Ice)
Near Shore Trolling Is Still Great For All Hearty Souls. Some Of The Best Action
For Trout And Salmon Again With Colder Water Temps. The End Of November
We Are Usually Seeing Inland Waters Starting To Skim Over And Our Ice
Season Can Begin For PanFish and Walleyes On These Waters. Great Action
For Those Species.
Chequamegon Bay, On Average, Is Iced Over The First Week Or Two Of This
Month. Action Can Be Fast And Furious For Trout/Salmon, Walleyes, And
SmallMouth. Some Are Still Fishing Out Of Boats, But Ours Is Put Away To
Accommodate The Ice Fisher. Inland Water Trips Are Being Done For Walleyes,
Pike, And PanFish.
