  1. appreciate the reply. hopefully the waves calm down coming up so we are able to fish. I will let you know how we did. thanks again.
  2. Going out of Manistee for the week starting tomorrow. Does anyone have any good reports coming out of there any help would be helpful
  3. not much bait but when the sun came down we saw a lot of fish starting to come up from the bottom.
  4. the fishing is starting to get better as the water warming up. we started in 80 fow on a sw troll picking up fish right away but no hits until about 7:30 an hour into it. dypsy 135 back on a Kevins girlfriend with pickled sunshine fly 14.5 pound king. after that about every 20-30 minutes we picked up another fish on rigger 55 down on blue balls meat rig. fished all the way out to 130 fow and ended up 6/8 finished fishing in shallow about 75 fow going on a ne troll. best speed was a little faster for us around 2.6-3.0 fish were in 45-60 feet deep and MEAT was the ticket for us really any color.
  5. started out in 125 fow doing a NE troll. picked up a nice steelhead on 5 color orange crush spoon around 135 fow. got out to about 150 and 5 color went off again orange crush another nice steelhead. turned back on a se troll and picked up another steelhead in about 130 fow 3 setting dypsy 110 back on a orange crush paddle meat rig. nothing really was consistent until we were about 200 yards north of the data buoy we saw a scum line and went for it about 90-100 fow and then everything went. All meat rigs went in all different colors they just wanted meat from 43-51 down. Final fish was we were reeling in our dypsy and about 50 foot behind the boat a king smacked the lure on top of the water reeling it in. craziest thing I have ever saw almost lost the pole and ended up getting him. All really nice fish smallest was about 8 pound steelhead and biggest was 14 pounds so no hogs but good eats 2.2-2.5 at the ball was best. ended 8/9
  6. I use size 107 but make sure your leads from dypsy are far enough. I typically use leader as long as rod so you can still net the fish but regardless what size you use or setting they can mostly get to the same depth. right now fish are in the 50-60 deep range so when you buy the dypsy it should come with a depth range. I'm having good luck on a 3 setting 130-150 back again though I think the farther the lead the better but be careful it's not too long otherwise you will have to hand reel in line which can be more productive catching more fish but you can also lose them by doing that. Hope this helps
  7. Fished last night from 6:00pm-10:00pm. got out of the channel and saw a big scum line and temp change like 8 degrees so we turned around and started in yes 27 fow and headed NW. marked fish but no hits until around 50 fow. rigger on 35 down chartreuse meat rig. Headed west until about 150 fow and did a turn and headed south and got a rip off rigger on chartreuse flasher fly 55 down nice king. minutes later 7 color went off on a do-de-k moonshine 5 pound laker. again minutes later same chartreuse flasher fly went off 53 down nice king. we turned around going back over mark but current wasn't good going north so we should have stayed on the line but oh well. had another rigger go off but nothing there so ended 3/6. not a bad trip when fishing is bad. hope it picks up soon
  8. Not that big but it was my buddies first king around 17-18
  9. Fished from 6-9:30 We went out to and set up deeper in 190 and got two within 30 minutes. 53 down on purple pooter meat rig then 61 down on a really bright yellow chartreuse spoon with red dots mostly NE troll was current then headed in and se was current and had a rip in 163 fow 130 back setting 2 on chartreuse spin doctor meat rig. And in 150 ish rigger 55 down lost on spotted dick. Before dark was in about 95 fow and got one on 128 back setting 3 chartreuse dream weaver then rigger 90 fow uv blue dolphin 45 down. NO ONE was catching anything we just got lucky didn't mark anything so today may be a good day but caught fish in 188 fow 161 fow 150 fow and 90 so there scattered ended up 4/6

  16. currents was pretty strong on a south/southwest trolling direction and most of our hits were that direction. we started just north and trolled south. most of our fish were in the 98-102 range in the top 35 fow. anything below that was low 40 degrees. we marked some bait just south of pier in 95 fow but besst surface temp for us was 51.8 degrees but at the ball 47 was best
  17. went out in am started in 60 fow and got two right away one on a rigger small king on a spotted dick meat rig 32 down and a 175 copper on uv blue dolphin. had a few rips off 5 color on carmel dolphin i think 3 and lost all three. had nothing until about 11 and got 5 fish on 175, 200, 200, and 250 copper in about 100 fow. most fish taken were on a south troll about 2.4 speed at the ball. ended 7 for 12 PM trip we set lines around 6:00 and got a one right away on 175 copper on uv blue dolphion and nothing until about 9:30 then it turned on hard. caught 6 fish within 45 minutes right after another in about 100 fow trolling north. all on boards 5,7 color and 175 and 250 copper anything glow spoons. let me know any more info and i can go more into depth. ended the day going 14/23
  18. what a tough day of fishing. set lines in 80 fow and headed SW. got our first rip off 200 copper on a uv blue dolphin small king. got out to about 120 ft and had a fish lost at boat on a 7 color Carmel dolphin. after going out to about 160 fow headed back in and had a hit on 300 copper yager bomb in about 130 fow small king. ended 2/3 but it was very slow not many people were catching anything:mad:
  19. Went out late around 8 and fished till 10 ended 3/4 all kings. One on purple poorer meat rig 120 back 3 setting. One on moo moo meat rig rigger 45 down. One on 35 down Carmel dolphin and last 300 copper double orange crush. Best current was sw and caught all out fish trolling that direction about 2.2-2.4 mph at ball. Fished 80-90 fow
  20. I'm going out tonight I will post how we did and what troll worked best
  21. When looking at the surface currents on coast watch does the down current usually go the opposite direction? I'm curious to know since it would be nice to know the direction before going out and trying to find what direction it is
