Trollers are fishing summer patterns and spots on Lake Superior,
and fishing is picking up somewhat. Typical summer fishing – the
flats, south shore, and many spots up into the islands have been
producing lakers and a few other species for anglers working bigger
spoons and dodger combos near structure in 60 to 120 feet of water.
Darker colors, and slightly faster speeds, seem to be working the
past couple of weeks. Get off-shore to find these summer fish.
There are lots of commercial nets around the islands again this
year; watch out for them.

Smallmouth fishing is in a late-summer pattern now on
Chequamegon Bay, with small pods of fish scattered throughout the
bay. Look to weed edges, rocks, drop-offs, and shelves until you
find the fish. Once found, they’ll bite plastics, jigging spoons,
crankbaits, and swim baits if they are turned on. If not, have the
Lindy rigs and live bait ready.

Inland lakes are doing great right now. The walleye bite has
moved to a better evening/dusk bite on structure. Bass are done
spawning and have moved deep on typical deeper summer structure, as
have northerns. The early morning lily pad bite on weedless frogs
has been good. Muskie reports have gotten a little better with
warmer temps and more stable weather.
