Get Outdoors: Ice Fishing Lake Superior

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
The cold weather this year has caused Lake Superior to freeze up and allowed ice fisherman a rare opportunity. In this weeks Get outdoors, Meteorologist Adam Lorch heads onto the big lake in search of some big fish.
This week I’m on the hunt for an illusive fish.
Cory Werhman, a Local Fishing Guide, tells me, “Today were going to start off between 60 and 65 feet. And then possibly progressively work out deeper.”

Fishing guide Cory Werhman is bringing me out onto the hard water outside of Two Harbors in search for a Lake Trout. But there are other species here I could catch too.
“In this shallow there could be some Coho Salmon, some herring, possibility of lake trout. When we go out deep it’ll be mostly lake trout.” says Werhman.
After the shallow waters yielded little to write home about, Cory decided to move deeper. We get set up and then it’s time to jig.
Werhman says, “A fairly active presentation fishing for lake trout, they’re fairly active fish when they’re chasing.”
Werhman says the bite has been a bit hit or miss lately, but he sets me up with his favorite new bait.
“We have a PK lure. I discovered these this year and they’ve been doing pretty good with lake trout and then it’s taped but they smelt head.” said Werhman.
After hours of jigging and only a few light taps at the end of my line, it was time for me to pack up. But I don’t take lightly the opportunity I had to get out there.
“The last couple of years we’ve been blessed to come out to enjoy the resource and the hard waters so take advantage of it while we can.” said Werhman.
If you are to go out onto the lake yourself, make sure you use extreme caution. No ice is safe ice.

“You’ve got to be careful with whatever you’re doing out here. There’s no safe ice ever, but educating yourself will lessen your chances of getting in or getting wet.” said Werhman.
