I'm looking to partner up for a late May, early June trip to the U.P. Over the years the people I have taking this annual trip with have moved, shipped out, or are too busy keeping their jobs to go. Accommodations will be a HUNTING cabin on 50 arces surrounded by National forest. The cabin is on a lake but the fishing hasn't been the greatest for a few years. It's about a half hour ride to more productive lakes or rivers. I have access to a small boat with a 40 horse, depth finder and trolling motor and I will drive. as for fish we target I've mostly targeted bass but wouldn't mind targeting musky and pike or eyes.

Fair warning I drink and swear but I am respectful and not an asshole. also, my Chocolate lab Kaiser will be coming as well so if you don't like dogs piss off. If your interested send me a pm.

Here's a couple photos from the cabin







a couple bass

Mike,
We don't head out to superior never had boat that would handle it. I've been working my way up though. First it was just canoes, then a 15' foot with a 9.9, now a 16' with a 40 hp.

Ron,
I'll need to look for those headless perch, might be hard to target without a mouth though.

Superior on piers!! I've also seen guys do it on boat, fishing a bay I know of that is protected by the violence of Lake Superior.

Jaypee,

I go up for a week or so leave around 6am Friday or Saturday and return the following Saturday. It's a five to six hour drive up.

Never fished for whitefish, from where we are I think Lake S is about a 2- 3 hour cruise.

Ron,
It's lake marianne (sp?) the cabin is just outside of watersmeet.

I drive through Watersmeet to get to my holes and the headless perch was caught 20 miles from there. I had a feeling the pics were in the western UP. The lake looks so much like Courtney Lake and Bob's Lake that aren't far away.

Gotta love Watersmeet

That would have been awesome if you could have made it Matt. When are you guys due? should be soon right?
She actually was born on Jan. 30th, so she is 7 weeks old today :D Time flies, eh? Just seeing how much time and effort is involved in taking care of her, I don't think I would have a wife anymore if I took another big fishing trip this year :p
Whoever gets to up with you will have a great time. Guys, Nathan can also cook up a storm too 8)

Sounds like fun. I'm supposed to be heading about 100 miles east of there (gladstone) in July. Two years ago I would of jumped at the chance to do two trips up there, but with two little ones (latest one born feb 9th) at home now passes for things like that are rare. Hope you have a great time :)

Well, that's weird. UPS just delivered 6 rods to my house. I gave my wife a huge hug and kiss for the gift. She swears she knows nothing about the package but I appreciate her generosity none-the-less.
