Low temperatures have affected much of the country over the past two weeks, and Chequamegon Bay on Lake Superior and the Hayward-Wisconsin region were no exception.
One of the benefits of cold weather is the amount of ice that is formed. Chequamegon Bay was eventually closed completely and fishermen were able to sail to the Apostle Islands.
On Apostle Island, lake trout live from 40 to 250 meters. The best spots were the best spots and deep reefs.
Anglers are finding 8 to 10 inches, but as always, be careful, especially on Lake Superior.
Work aggressively with heavy deerskin spoons, tube spoons or spoons with shear points, or cut bait like herring and work it on the bottom. When a fish is tagged, slowly lift it up so the fish goes after your bait. This represents the majority of lake trout caught.
The interior of Chequamegon Bay produces a mixed catch of flake, brown trout, whitefish, walleye and rations.
The fish are scattered and roam the bay. Small spoons with pipe heads work best.
The bite was decent in and around Hayward Wisconsin. Toad and pike produce the most consistent action.
Stinging nettles are found in the main ponds of the lake, at a depth of about 30 feet. The small tungsten balls with wax worms or spikes worked well. The best bite was at dawn and dusk.
Pike can be found along the grass lines and main points of the lake and are fished throughout the day. Tips with suction cups or a frozen snout of about 8 to 10 inches produce better fish.
Ice conditions are best in the area, but most lakes are between 10 and 14 inches in size. As the snow conditions are quite bad, it is not recommended to drive there. Good luck on the ice!
