  3. Started in 150 and trolled out to 275. Lots of high marks but no takers and no temp breaks. Found 1 small laker. Pulled and ran back to 150 and fished there to 110 with 1 small silver lost and another small laker. ONLY 5 DAYS LEFT to sign up for KIDS & KINGS. $500 first place, paying 50 spots. See Hollandstealheaders.org for rules and signup
  4. 3RD annual Holland SteelHeaders Kids and Kings tournament is June 27th. Last year we had 108 kids. This year we have shirts and goodie bags for the first 150 signups. First prize is $500 and we well be paying cash and or awards down 75 places, and big fish in 3 classes. Also plenty of door prizes. Very simple rules each kid weighs 1 fish. This tourney was featured on MI Outdoors last year and you can still see the episode on-line(July show). See all the rules and on-line sign up at hollandsteelheaders.org. This is by far the biggest premire kids tourney on the great lakes.
  5. Pre fished friday for the BB and caught 20 coho and a shaker king. Sat managed 1 little brown and a laker and again as many coho as you wanted. Red dodgers and blue gold peanut took 60% of the ho's even one that was down to about 5 strands of tinsel. Chalets to just past the power plant in 30 to 35 was the ticket. 38 for 43 overall. I LOST a single car key on a key fab in the st joe launch parking lot if anyone found one.
  6. promised I'd take my grandson fishing today. left at 7:15 for South haven. Truck started getting loud and running bad. Exhaust pipe broke. Decided to head to Holland but the truck started running so bad I went home and switched vehicles. Put in the water at Holland and headed for the big lake only to find the channel was locked in solid. Put the boat back on the trailer and headed to PS. Finally made the big lake and managed 1 brown and 1 sea gull that went for a gray thin fin that hit the surface when it got tangled in a balloon. Had 1 other big rip that broke off. Keep my promise.
  7. i run both 45 and 32 usually one of each on each side with the 32 on the outside. I never seem to catch the 45 when I go over it. I have added 2 colors of lead to my 32 and still dont catch the 45 so I think it must run a little deeper.
  8. not that I noticed. It was a 12" forshner with a black handle. I left it there Wed night at about 10:45. It didn't have a case with it.
  9. Went 5 for 8 in 100 to 120 50 and down. 3 kings and 2 steel. 4 bites on meat. left my Foresher knife at the cleaning station late last night if anyone happens to find it
  10. another flat calm day. We set up in 100fow at 5:45 and I literly had 2 boards ripped out of my hands as I was attaching the line. We worked 120 to 150 almost by ourselves as everyone else went deep. We took 4 nice kings and 1 #8 steelie. Biggest king hit a rigger 45 down with blue dolphin and weighed almost 21#. All hits were blues and greens spoons. No flasher flies at all. I think there were good numbers in there but it really slowed when the sun came up then turned back on about 10am when we lost a double. Dont forget there is only 3 weeks left to sign up for the Kids and Kings tournament for June 28th. $500 first prize, paying down 25 spots and awards down to 50 spots. Only the first 100 get goodie bags that include tshirts, a spinning combo, and a lot more. Go to Hollandsteelheaders.org to sign up. Take a kid fishing, it will be a lot of fun.
  11. we went south to Saugy and set up trolling south in 40 to 60fow. we were into fish all day and ended up 15 for 20. 80% of our hits came between 3.0 and 3.3 on the surface and 2.7 to 2.9 below. 175 copper with mag mixed veggie uv went at least 6 times. Ended with 3 fish just before 12:00 13 miles south of Holland
  12. I know there is already a post from our trip on here. Just wanted to thank FBD for tip. First 1/2 hour we were not finding them. We moved into 8 to 12fow and it was non stop all the way to the power plant. Found something better than fishing with my kids, fishing with my kids and grandkids at the same time. Dont forget we have Tony Salerno from Living the Dream speaking for the Holland Steellheaders Thur at the Yatch Basin. No charge, Drinks at 6 dinner(donations) at 7. Find out why Living the Dream is one of the most consitant winners on the tour. Great place to meet area fellow fisherman. More info on our web site. Hollandsteelheaders.org
