Hey there!

Me and the other half might be heading up to northern Huron in August, and I'm looking for tips.

I don't own a boat, but we were planning to stay at Brennan Harbour, where we will have access to one.
As such, this will be our first time fishing a great lake on our own, and I would really appreciate any advice.

We are looking to target walleye, pike, and perch. We have some shore fishing tackle, but not much for trolling, and I would like to know what is recommended for the area.

Many thanks in advance!

I grew up in Elliot Lake and fished the mouth of the Spanish Rv and the islands in the area many times. If you're staying at a lodge, as k questions re: spots, bait, tackle, etc. They're usually happy to share basic information with paying guests (especially if renting one of their boats).

My suggestions for tackle would be to keep it simple: rapalas in perch, black/gold, orange. Crawler harnesses. Small spinners. 1/8 and 1/4 oz jigs. simple hooks, weights....

work the weed edges, shoals, humps, ... My experience is that live bait will likely be key for pickerel and perch. You may also run into a muskie, so might want to be ready for that.

Good luck.
