Why I don't fish on Superior

Recommended Posts

It's nice living on the shores of Lake Superior. It's the cleanest and the largest of the Great Lakes and the fishing is fantastic. I've lived on her shorelines my entire life, but I've only fished on Superior a few times. Here's why.

We get those big tankers here to on lake E dan that go out to hydro @ nanticoke with coal and such. & The weather gets just as bad if not worse. Which is why we have a memorial for all the fisherman that have lost there lives on this lake here in port dover.

There must be some days when the weather is calm enough ?

That last pic is amazing.

 

Big Lake. Lots of room for winds to pick up speed.

No, Naughti, Superior can be much worse than down south.

 

The Edmund Fitzgerald fell fate to Superior 30 yrs. ago, in probably much worse weather.

 

Gordon Lightfoot's haunting song about it is a testament to its loss.

Ohhh Tjsa trust me i know that song like the back of my hand. WHEN I USED TO LIVE ON MAIN STREET GOT TO HEAR A LOCAL HERE sing it every sunday afternoon here in PD & i mean every single sunday afternoon through the season because the bar across the street used to put speakers outside on the front step.

 

But yes we do get really nasty weather here on lake E and it can change at the blink of an eye. I do have some pics some where gotta try N find em.

 

& CRAZY.....LMDAO.

Those are some crazy vids. My uncle was the first officer on the HMCS toronto and told me stories of them being in such rough water that when the boat listed you could walk on the walls of the ship!!!!

Cool Mepps. Here is a vid that shows what happens inside the ship.

 

 

You can see the ship flexing from bow to stern from the inside.
