We went on a guided trip last June. We trolled for walleye. We caught a 6 man limit. We brought back a BUNCH of fillets. I’ll try and get the guys name we went with.

The trolling took a lot of fun out it. I think we had 10+ rods out at one time. But the guy did his job. He helped us catch a lot of fish

Most likely walleye or maybe lake trout.

There is some awesome smallmouth fishing up there too. I have never been, but I used to work with a guy that pulled his boat up there every year from TN. He caught alot in the 4-6lb range.

Skip the lake trout IMO anyway. Caught a whole bunch of them in the Upper Peninsula one summer. They were fun I guess, but didn’t taste any good and the walleye and smallmouth are a lot funner to catch.

id fish the eastern basin if i could, Penn. or NY side, part of the central and western basin is still polluted. the eastern side is where they catch steelhead, coho, browns and healthy walleye anyways.

Where we fished it was all about perch and walleye. I think they told us we would have to go up near NY to get into the good smallmouth. I have perch/walleye every day I was there. Perch is an underrated tasty fish, I might have liked it more than the walleye.

Dude I think you may be the only person ever to say they dont like lakers.

To the OP there are great walleye, perch and smallmouth fishing.

Check out Capt. Denny Sharrone. I have not fished with him up there yet, but he has fished with us down here. He is a great guy. I am looking forward to getting up there to fish with him.
