Stannard Rock Learning Center
1.2 Billion years ago when the world was still young the North American Continent Split apart spewing molten lava across the land scorching and burning everything and anything in its path. This great rift in the Earth’s crust was the formation of the Greatest of all the Great Lakes – “Lac Superior” as the French Voyageurs would name her. She was the sweetest water with the bluest sky and the Greatest Fishing the world has ever known.
Torn from the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula by tremendous tectonic forces, a small band of this prehistoric bedrock was thrust to the surface in the middle of this mighty lake, creating an isolated world within a vast inland sea, known as the “Rock”.
In modern times Lake Superior has cooled and now relinquishes giant Lake trout, with the recent state record of 61 1/2 plus pounds. The beautiful lake has a hidden secret, which holds these trophy lakers – Stannard Rock, located 45 miles North by Northeast of Marquette, Michigan in the heart of Lake Superior.
In early spring the gin-clear waters settle down from the raging storms of last year’s gales to create the world’s finest lake trout fishery. This trip is for those who seek the thrill and excitement of battle and who enjoy the challenges that await them on this incredible Blue Water run. You are invited to join us this year, May through September on a quest to hunt and catch Trophy “Red Fin” Lake Trout on light weight spinning tackle.
