How Wind and Weather Can Affect Fishing on Lake Superior
Mother nature can sometimes be a foe, and sometimes be a friend. Winds from the east or northeast can sometimes prevent boats from fishing on the lake. The reason is, waves have time to build as the come down the lake. East winds in excess of 15 mph can sometimes make fishing uncomfortable, especially in the early season when water temps are in the 30’s or 40’s. What is “to rough to fish” depends upon other variables as well. Forecasts are usually not reliable enough to know the day before the trip if it will be fish-able. If you have questions about weather, please call your scheduled Captain. Another option on east wind days is to fish the St. Louis River and bay for walleye, northern pike, and trophy muskie.
