Lake Michigamme, Sundstrum Island Marquette County Michigan Fishing
I found the area around Sundstrum Island to be one of the better fishing areas
on the lake. There are sharp drops leading up to flats close to shore with
rocky points and underwater piles. Pike, bass, and walleye can be found here year round
off the drops and around the rocks. There is a very good spot just 50 feet out from the road access
shown above right. Rock outcrops and weeds are concentrated on the inside corner
just west of the island.
I was using a crawler harness trolling slow in 15 feet of water when I caught the two
walleye shown at the left. Sinners and crankbaits like the clown pattern Rapala seen
to work well on the pike. You can also jig down the drops and rock piles for walleye or bass.
Don't be afraid to cast in shallow, with the turbid water you will find them
in five feet or less at times.
