  1. Thanks for the report. Send some of those coho up to St. Joe !!!!
  2. Another slow day for us. The pier heads had way too many boats for my liking so I ran to the chalets and worked waters ten to fifty fow south to the power plant. After the water warmed a couple degrees to 46 we took three coho in front of the chalets. The fire tiger thunderstick took two behind boards in 15 and 20 fow and a fire tiger thin fin took one in 20 fow. That was it for the day but they sure tasted great on the grill when we got home!!!
  3. Fished this morning going 1 for 2. Ran the beach for a couple hours with no hits. Water was still cloudy and 43 degrees. Moved back to river mud line at the piers and took a 6 pound brown on a orange jointed rapala running 6 feet down on a rigger in 30 fow. On the north side of the mud had a steelhead on until his third jump threw the plug. It hit a fire tiger thin fin running behind a board. Hopefully better luck tomorrow.
  4. Set in at the pier heads at 9:00 and trolled to the chalets. Went 8 for 10 working waters 10 ft. to 25 ft. Took 7 coho and 1 laker. Orange jointed rapalas and red thin fins worked the best.
  5. After looking at a ton of pictures what we caught was not a splake but I think the laker wasn't a full laker. It had all the markings of a laker but the head was not normal. It will go into the log book as a laker!!!! Thanks to all who posted pictures of the two.
  6. As soon as it came out of the water we knew it wasn't a coho. I really didn't expect the steelhead either but it will all taste good!!!!
  7. There was a small amount of floating ice to the north of the piers but it was along the shoreline.
  8. Fished in front of the pier heads this morning putting 8 in the cooler. We took 4 coho, 2 steelhead, one king at 16 pounds and 1 splake. All fish came in 26 to 32 feet of water. The steelhead came in the clean water and the rest in the mud. The steel head came on a red thin fin and a green jointed rapala. Two coho came on red thin fin and two on a coho dodger with a white fly on a 2 co;lor lead. The king came on a mixed veggie stinger and the splake came on watermelon stinger. The lake temp was 39 and the river water coming out was 49 It was our first trip out for the year and all equipment worked great which is always a plus!!!
  9. We went 8 for 12 with 6 Lakers and 2 kings fishing 80 to 90 fow. Magnum lemon ice on 100 copper took a king and a laker. A mixed Veggie spin doctor and no see um fly on a low diver out 170 took a Laker. That same set up on a rigger down 80 ft. took three lake trout.A white spin doctor with a green and gold fly on a low diver 175 back took a king. A magnum warrior spoon lime with a pink dot down 80 on a rigger took two Lakers.
  10. We took a three man limit of coho in 25 to 30 fow. We fished from Churchill Farms to the chalets. All fish came off boards using red thin fins and red thunder sticks. Only one dock in at DNR launch in Benton Harbor.
  11. We spent the entire morning in front of the piers working 17 feet to 50 ft. We ended up one for one. There seemed to be a lot of fish around but not interested in hitting anything. The king we got came on a blue spin doctor with a blue bubble fly on a dipsy set on three 50 back. we were in 19fow off the south pier. It seems like the most fish we marked was in 35 to 40 feet of water.
