Need help on the big lake
« on: May 02, 2006, 10:21 AM »
Ok, so this year I'm really going to start focusing on catching salmon instead of lakers. I have a big enough boat to take onto the big ponds, downriggers, dipsies, outboard planers, and a decent selection of crankbaits, spoons, flashers, etc.

However, I dont really know WHERE to go to find the fish. I've always relied on dumb luck in the past, but I think its time I figure out what these fish want and where they hang out at different times of the year. I've been doing pretty good on Coho, but I'm really looking for information on King/Chinooks than anything else. I'm fishing Lake Superior...should be about the same as any other lake. Help is appreciated!
"I fish because I love to; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience; because maybe one day I will catch a mermaid; and finally, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important, but suspect so many other concerns of men equally unimportant- and not nearly so much fun."

My best advice (since I fish Lake Ontario) is to ask a local charter captain.

Kings around Oswego right now are deep.  42 degree water has been best for the majors.
