  1. Fish were so thick that the fish finder thought it was seeing bottom at 28.6. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. The big school of cohos seems to be moving north through the Holland area at about 8 miles per day, at least for us. Got 16 coho, one king and a steelhead in 185 FOW south of Saugatuck on Thursday. Top 125 feet, orange spoons on all lines except for a flasher/fly on the chute. Sliders on all three riggers took a lot of the fish. Found them Friday in front of Holland in 230 FOW, same program, took eight coho and three kings. Saturday we found them a little north of Holland in 265 FOW, caught eight coho and one large lake trout in about two hours with just six rods. Same program as before. Same orange and copper standard and small size spoons all three days. Didn’t fish Sunday but my buddy caught twelve in 265 FOW in front of Port Sheldon, same program as us. Hopefully we’ll get the tail end of the main school and some stragglers for another week or so, who knows? Great to see that they’re still out there in good numbers, hopefully the kings will show up soon! Photo was taken Saturday in265 FOW. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  7. Why are the DNR trying to pull the wool over your eyes? How do they further their agenda of improving fishing in Michigan by telling you we have problems? How would they sell more licenses by downgrading the fishing falsely? Just wondering... Sent from my SM-G900V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  9. Nice job on the browns! FYI, FBD (always wanted to say that), the coho are still there, but out deep, 250+ FOW, but willing to attack any magnum spoon you care to throw at them, as long as it's blue. From 100' of copper to 130' down the chute, everything goes. Have fun out there! -Captain Jeff
  10. Lots of steelhead and immature salmon have moved into the Holland area. 120 - 160 FOW, top 35 feet has been best. Super Slims (Buffalo Bill, UV Mixed Veggy, NBK) on short coppers, meat on low divers set at 65 doing well. Yesterday morning our clients took five kings up to fourteen pounds, five steelhead to twelve pounds, and one lake trout. Still time to book a charter for fun fall fishing! venividifishi.com
  11. Does the pickled asparagus come with it? Kidding aside, analog units like this have terrific sensitivity. My 1987 Furuno is still functioning well, and can pick up very small targets. Don't be afraid of the age on this one.
  12. Thanks to everyone who responded! I was overwhelmed by the number of folks willing to dedicate their weekend to help out their fellow fisherman.
  13. Hi, our team (Veni Vidi Fishi) is looking for an observer for the Holland Big Red Tournament on August 3 and 4. If you've never been an observer before, it's a good chance to sharpen your own skills by being on pro-boats for a weekend, and hopefully learning a few new tricks. Responsibilities include logging in the catch for the team that you're assigned to, making sure they follow the rules, and accompanying your assigned team to the weight-in. It's a two day contest, however the observer must attend the Captain's Meeting on Friday night as well. We will pay $100, and you're more than welcome to fish with us on the Friday "practice" day. Our boat is a 36 Tiara Open, and we have an experienced crew, including two charter captains. Please contact me at [email protected] if your interested or would like more information.
  14. Had a great trip with Steve Gibson from Shallow Pockets Fishing today. Caught plenty of Redfish and Trout, fished from fun kayaks on Sarasota Bay. Steve did a great job putting me on fish, and made sure I had a good time. Give hom a try if your in west Florida.
  15. I called Steve and scheduled a trip. Thanks again for the help, I'll let you know the results!
  16. Thanks very much for your efforts, I'll give him a call!
  17. Was hoping for some tips/recommendations for a backwater guide in the Sarasota area. Will be there over Christmas for eight days, and was hoping to get in a trip, either in a small boat or kayak. Any suggestions?
  18. Fished 160 - 180 FOW Wednesday night, NW and SW troll worked best, 13 for 15, two steelhead on ten color chrome J-plug, rest coho and kings 4 - 17 pounds, wire dipsies 190 back on 2 1/2 worked best, Ace High green/black ladder back, wonder bread Lyman Lures. Dark green Spin Doctor/Rubber Proctologist, then Dancing Anchovy and Blue Mongolian Beef at dark off the outdowns.
