  1. Upland Game hunting, Dogs and dog training
    Hey all, Long story short, I am a long time Michigan native who took a dream job in WI two years back. I now have a 10 month GSP and am planning to hunt the western upper peninsula pretty aggressively this year. Does anyone have any experience with Blue Bill Creek GEM? I want to get this pup...
  2. Big Lake Cold Water Fishing Reports
    Im almost done with my exams (Finance) and I was thinking of taking my boat up to the Grand Marais area to do some fishing (lake trout and coho). From what Ive heard the best bet is to troll 30-60 ft with a flasher and spin n glow. But Ive also seen that pink and orange spoons as well as...
  3. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    Anyone offer any advice on Lake Herring or Menominee? Looking at the Two hearted and west. I saw people do it years ago, looked like they just flipped out a line with a long rod where the surf met the river flow. Are they going to be stream specific, or am I likely to encounter them in any Lake...

    Hey all, I'm wanting to get into steelhead fishing more so than I have been before. I'm currently in Marquette, anyone know if the local rivers (within an hour) have steelhead during the winter? Or is it better to just wait til spring? Still pretty new to the area so any advice would help!
  5. Warm Water Species Fishing
    Heading to the UP in a week looking to do some fishing. Google has been iffy at best with helping me identify a good fishing lake. Looking for a lake with a campground that keep my boat docked for 6 days. Will fish for anything but preferably LM bass, pike, walleye in that order. I am giving up...
  6. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    I didn't make it out much last month as I have been busy with the arrival of my daughter and trying to keep the driveway clear of snow. We have had a very snowy February with nearly 90 inches falling on top of a good snow pack from January. I am now standing above the drifter when I shovel the...
  7. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    We have had some awesome weather this year in the U.P. and our rivers remain ice free for the most part and the trout bite has been on more often than not. I have been staying pretty local this year and concentrating on mostly "euro nymphing". It feels pretty familiar after using the always...
  8. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    My brother has lived in the UP for 8 years and only twice has he been able to draw a doe tag. So this past thanksgiving I traveled north to reflect on all our blessings. We don't get to hunt together nearly as much as we used to, so when the wives said go and they'll watch the kids. That's all...
  9. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    I have been fishing all over the U.P. the last couple weeks and I haven't been out as much as I would like, but I have had some really fun days. My main targets have been kings and walleye, but I have hooked a few coho in the last week. I was lucky enough to land the longest LK. Superior king...
  10. Self Filming
    This hunt featured the G40 Camera and a muddy camera arm. We have used these for a couple years, the bases are heavy but overall very solid. Definitely looking into Fourth Arrow now.

    Hey everyone, I just finished up a breakdown of last year's Fall color trip- complete with 18 waterfalls along the way from Munising to Keweenaw. I noticed people looking for ideas and figured it may help...
  12. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    Hello fellow fishermen, I'm new to the forum but know that you're not allowed to name too many rivers. (Pretty sure PMs are alright though, if someone is feeling generous) I've gotten into fly fishing recently while away at school and am trying to find EUP streams and rivers that have a fall...
  13. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    My brother moved to the UP 8 years ago now and has been hunting public land ever since. The first thing he wanted to knock off the list was taking a black bear so he did, a couple times actually. But he was not able to harvest a legal buck throughout his time up there. Needless to say this could...
  14. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    It is starting to feel like fall in our area and we have a lot of good opportunities in the local rivers and river mouths.I am seeing many anglers targeting the fall runs, but stream trout fishing has picked up big time too.Salmon are in all the usual rivers and we are seeing mostly kings right...
  15. Trout Fishing, Fly Tying, Techniques
    I have been fishing a lot of warmwater again this year in the U.P. since a lot of my favorite rivers have been too hot to go for trout. It has been a blast so far on most days with pretty cooperative fish. The exception being my last outing on a 90 degree day where I only managed a couple rock...

    I just put up a new report on our site. We are in the middle of some pretty good fishing right now! https://www.superioroutfitter.com/local-fishing-reports
  17. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    I just put up an updated report on our site. We are getting a lot of calls/emails from folks looking to travel here to fish. If you are thinking about traveling to the Marquette area I would wait a couple weeks for conditions to improve. https://www.superioroutfitter.com/local-fishing-reports
  18. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    I was able to get out for a few hours yesterday afternoon on a local Lake Superior stream to check for spring steelhead. I did't run into any steel, but landed a couple nice browns and I missed a few more. Water levels are pretty low overall and temps are in the low 30's still. I tried...

  20. Warm Water Species Fishing
    I have been going up the the Les Cheneaux islands for the last 25 years but have recently gotten into fly fishing. As elementary as it is I guess my question is, is there any good fly fishing in or around the islands? Any recommendations or information helps, thanks!
