    Temp probe advice

    I have the x4d. I'm not sure the depth is worth the extra cash. There are so many variables when running dipseys, cores, coppers that having the exact depth is really not a benefit in my eyes. Getting the general depth of the temp range you're looking for on your rigger counter is good enough. I run 13lb pancakes and have never seen large variances in counter depth vs x4d until you get way down and at that depth do you really need to know the temp. Guarantee 95% of the time it will be mid to low 40's down past 150. Anyway that's my $.02
  4. Lines down at 6:45 up at 11:30. Went 16 for 19. 1 dropback steel, 6 hos, 9 Kings. Largest king was 18. Ho's were all small 2-3 lb. Took bites from 150 to 215 straight out to a little South. Best water was the 170's. Had 12 by 9am and then it went pretty dry. Temps started at 48 and ended at 51 Speed was 2.8-3.0 SOG. No direction better than another. Took bites on every presentation except for meat. 300,250.150,7 color,10color,slide diver, mag diver, riggers Mag Flounder pounder and Midnight special were good early then moved on to brighter spoons Jordo, lemon ice, mixed veggie. 1 bite on a paddle and 1 bite on a spinny. Everything else was spoons in the top 60. Landed the second ever true double on my boat with 2 ho's Vibrator fly on a slider took 3 ho's and a king.
  5. You want to go out of the Harbor Island boat launch. That is the main launch for Grand Haven and will easily handle a 27 foot boat. As FBD said you want to go directly out to the main channel from the docks as it can get shallow up or down stream from the launch. You could certainly launch out of Snug in Muskegon which has a small fish cleaning station. But I would argue it is any easier to get to than Harbor Island. Also I've hit a couple underwater stumps heading out of Snug before I learned how to leave and come into that launch. Higher water levels may have made that a moot point though.
  6. Fought the waves this morning from 630-930 just N of Saugatuck. Had a buddy and his young son but we only ran 6 lines to keep away from too many tangles. Went 10 for 13 with a throwback shaker. 8 Kings and 2 ho's. Biggest was 17.5 Took bites in 115-140 Temps were cold at 47 Once again spoons ruled for me. Mag black spoons up in the top 40 ruled the day. Rigger down 35 with Mag carbon moonshine took 3 250 copper with Mag Screwball took 3 Rest were on divers and 150 copper with purple spoons
  7. Yeah I lost 5 alone yesterday in Holland. All hooked up solid and lost well into the fight. Last week went 4 for 4. Today we missed 3 slider bites 1 dipsey and one copper and only one was mine
  8. 24 for 29. 6:45 lines down 10:45 lines up. 16 kings, 5 coho, 3 lakers. Released 2 nice kings, shaker, and a laker. 4 largest were 20+ with a lot of teeners mixed in. Surface temp was 49. SOG 2.5-2.7 All bites in top 60 feet. Riggers 40 to 50 down with free sliders. Dipseys out 70-100. 300,250,150, 10 color all went. Green spinny green fly and purple color Mag spoons were our top producers. Filled a 94 quart cooler and 1/2 of a 126
  9. Launched at St Joe city launch this morning. No issues. They have also put out some current breaks which really help. current was ripping today but launching and retrieving were not bad at all
  10. Atta boy Bob! They are definitely out there to be had
  11. Fishing has actually been pretty good when you can get out. Kings are around. Not a slaughter like St Joe but fishing has been better than I have had in the last 6 years.
  12. 13 for 19. 7am-12pm. 4 shakers released. 3 Kings 6 ho's in the box. Biggest king was high teens. Just North of Saugatuck in 115-120 fow. Top 60 feet. All spoons. Ran lots of spinnies and paddles with no joy. Mix of slims, std, mags 2.7-2.9 SOG. Surface temps were 47-49. Lots of fog in the AM but slowly burned off as the morning went on.
  13. Lines down at 6:45 up at 9:45. Left because of the stromfront Started in front of Saugatuck in 45 fow. Took a look at the heads but no bait and no birds so I bailed First fish was 9 lb King on 7 color Jordo spoon in 62fow Next 3 fish were all in 80-90 fow 2 lb steel on Mag slide diver out 100 with a MIdnight special (released). This also took a 13lb King 14lb king on a 300Cu with a blue bubble Flasher fly. Last King was 1/2 way back to Holland Marked quite a few fish all morning in 80-90. Temps were 52 up in 45fow and 48 in 90fow All bites were headed versions of North 2.6-2.9 SOG Empty stomachs
