  1. Today
  2. No lakers. I think they’re out in that 200. We didn’t mark many fish around the weather buoy, but still managed a good day, thank you, I was pretty amazed myself. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  3. No Lakers? Amazing catch.
  4. Fat fingered that, 2 small Kings not 3 Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  5. Played around in south haven today, all the boats went out to 200, I stayed in and fished the weather buoy AGAIN. It never puts me on limits, but ended up 5 for 6 with 3 steelhead and 3 small kings. Kept one steelhead and One king just to feed us, and let the rest swim. All fish caught on north troll in 65-70 fow, 1.8-2.2 and every single one came on a downrigger 70 down with a spin n glow behind a tin can 5 feet behind the ball.

  6. Yesterday
  7. Nice catch! Michigan City has a large marina just inside the piers and a decent launch right there. I've only fished there in the spring, coho fishing is good then.
  8. St Joe 9-20,21

    I come from the Kokomo Indiana area to fish so I prob won't head any further north. Does anyone know anything about Michigan City? I have never been there. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  9. St Joe 9-20,21

    It seems like a lot of people move north with the tournament trail. I start out fishing st Joe, then move to south haven, holland, grand haven, and Muskegon is as far north as I go, but I usually don’t end up any further south than south haven any time after May.

  12. Went out on 9-20 sun up to sun down, and today from sun up until noon. I fished from 80-150 and only caught lakers. 120 was the only place I caught fish, and all were under 5 pounds. I had luck with glow dolphins and a coyote spoon. I couldn't even get a bump on flies/flashers. Caught about ten and most were so small they wouldn't trip the riggers.

  13. Holland am, 9-21

    When I solo fish, which is most of the time, I will put a meat rig on one rod if nothing else is working. Extra rods always helps. September seems a little slower this year.
  14. Last week
  15. Fished the Rabbit at Hamilton yesterday. River is about 2' low, and nothing is in just yet. Same story at the Holland pier. No action yet 9.20 or 9.21 Maybe I should have gone for turkey instead[emoji4] Sent from my A621BL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Good job. Out of my spread of 6 or 8 rods I usually put meat on 2 or 3 rods, especially riggers. In late August, our 22# king in Frankfort came on Capt John King Ghostbuster flasher and meat rig.
  17. Running deep, close to bottom (130 down on fish hawk in 135 FOW) Sent from my iPad using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  18. Were you bouncing the bottom with your spin and glows or just running deep as you stated?
  19. Holland am, 9-21

    I had the same problem earlier this month with meat. I guess it's all in the timing. They said the meat rig was bit pretty quick. It was a very nice looking steelhead.
  20. I tried meat for a while this morning out of Grand Haven but found no takers Sent from my iPad using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  21. Headed out again this morning. Lines set in 100 FOW heading to south. Lots of makes and baitfish again, especially in the 120 to 150 FOW depths. Turned back north and covered the same area with plenty of marks but no takers. Finally got a shaker lake trout on a grn/white spoon while checking lines then landed a 4lb lake trout on Silver w/grn dots spin doctor and a yellow spin n glow down at the bottom in 135 FOW. Surface temp 68 and it was 42 dog down 120 ft. At least fresh fish for dinner! I think the salmon are allergic to me! Sent from my iPad using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  22. Hi Bobr, I'm going to take a shot at it this weekend out of Muskegon. I'll try your depths and see what happens up here
  23. Holland am, 9-21 1/1 with a 4# laketrout taken on 270 cu with Green RV-1 Flounder Pounder, in 129 fow at 10:16 am, 2.8 sog, north troll. I must have had the fish on for awhile. When I brought the line in, it got stuck in the eyelet when the copper started to separate and unraveI. I cut away the bad parts, rejoined the line and brought the fish in. My swivel must not have been rotating. No other releases. Very bouncy 3-4 ft rollers not the 1ft forecast. Another boat out there caught a 12# steelhead in 145 fow on green meat rig down 100ft on a rigger. I was lucky enough to weigh it while I was waiting to clean my fish. They were fishing friends of mine. I guess I need to buy some more meat?
  24. Early bird gets the worm...... ........which he then uses to go fishing.
  25. Trolled between 120 and 160 FOW with plenty of marks and bait fish on the graph. No takers. Tried spoons, flies, paddles, spin doctors, whirly gigs to no avail. The water was 42-44 degrees at 100 ft down. Hope to try again in the morning! Sent from my iPad using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  26. You did better than most of us, congrats! PS. It's not fair you caught my fish. Enjoy though!
  27. One of em was me probably. We started an hour earlier and finished an hour later. Set up in 75 fow with good marks on a south troll. When they ran out, trolled west to 135. No marks or bites so we came back in and began marking fish between 115 - 120 fow. Finished 3 for 3 with 2 kings and a small laker. Larger king was 15 lbs but had teeny tiny eggs. Probably would have been 30 lbs next August. All hits came from 115-120 fow. Big king came on 180 copper with Moonshine Rickety Ranger, laker came on slider with blue dolphin 90 down, last king came on rigger 80 down with magnum Silver Streak but don't know the name. Blue black and chrome with white nose. Trolling speed was 2.7 to 2.9. Very slow but given the poor fishing lately, quite happy with 3 fish.
