  1. Good job and thanks for the Muskegon report. I plan to be out tonight.

    If you set up in 80fow, how far out did you end up going? I presume you saw the nets in 90fow, but maybe you were already NW of them.


    Started just south of the nets and trolled outside of them. Finished just past them in 115' of water. 2.9 on the GPS seemed to work the best but honestly i maybe fished 10 min. all morning without having a fish on.

  2. First trip on my boat this year. Like to do it solo in case i turn it into a cluster. I don't like witnesses to my own stupidity.

    Great morning though. Set lines in 80' of water just north of the pierheads at 6:30 am.

    NW troll had 5 fish in the box by 7:30 and had to throw another back that hit before i could get the last 2 lines cleared.

    150 copper with a moonshine. Not sure of the name but it looks like a Bloody nose.

    Riggers at 62 with a white paddle and at 50 with a Happy meal

    Each line took 3 fish.

    These were not "Tournament" Fish if your fishing Muskegon this weekend.

    Just 5 to 10# good eating small Kings and Steelhead

  3. Original plan was to go deep in Lake Michigan but the wind was blowing hard at the marina so we scratched that plan.

    But after sitting at the dock watching all the boats trolling behind the paper mill for an hour we decided to jump on a friends boat with him and join the fun.

    We only fished for maybe 1 1/2 hours but managed to land 1 22# King on a J-Plug set 24' down. He also came with 15" Lamprey Eel as a bonus.

    First fish i've seen that touched both ends of the cooler in a long time.

    That was probably it for the year. Time to go huntin.

  4. Everyone bailed out on fishing today so i decided to go it alone. First time since we got the bigger boat.

    Not sure if it was more fun or frustrating. OK, More fun since i pulled a limit.

    Started out front in 50' water but it was dead so i headed out. At 110 i hit a double and landed 1 on a 150 copper w/a Flounder Pounder.

    Stayed in 110 to 125 North of the channel and filled up going i think 5 - 12.

    Rigger 60 down W/ a Magnum blue Dolphin and the copper took almost all the hits.

    Had 3 doubles this morning. I'm getting to old for that much fun. Or work, I'm still not sure,
