  1. Good tip. Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. What do you all use to store/transfer your starting lineup for a day of Salmon fishing? I've gone through several variations of bins, tackle boxes, bags, sleeves, etc. and just curious what others do. I don't put lures on rods before the boat is launched because they all lay together during trailering. Too many tangles with hooks attached.

  3. Where can I launch to fish grand haven this year? Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  4. I had lines wet with "?" marked on the graph by 6 AM. Like I said though, there was a boat near us that was 7 for 9 by around 9 AM and I think we were still 0 for 0 at that point. Who knows. I like the idea that it's just bugs and all the fish were avoiding the spot we were in. At least then I have a reason we didn't catch anything. HA
  5. There was another boat fishing similar depth and catching fish when I wasn't. I was pounding the area and depth of the bait/bugs. He might have been outside of it. I can think of at least a half dozen trips where I've marked these and consistantly have not much when fishing in or around it. Most of the time I catch fish that aren't even on the graph. I did catch a suspended lake trout around those clouds. Go figure. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  9. So I guess the million dollar question would be... Do you fish those spots or avoid them? I always try setting up on these types of marks and get frustrated when I can't get a darn thing to work in/around it. PS, sorry if I'm hijacking the post.
  10. Honestly it's a good question. Over the last 5 years I've seen marks like this, usually in the morning, rarely after the sun is up. I've always thought it was bait, but I suppose it could be something else. I saw small may flies on my boat when I launched and there were a ton of small black bugs on the boat in the AM while trolling. There were fish marks in/around these, whatever they are. I also could see my downrigger cable and diver wires vibrate when I went through them. I didn't see any sign of bugs on top of cannonballs or anything like that. It would be an interesting experiment to have a camera to drop down and see.
  11. I had the same experiance in Grand Haven on Thursday. Lots of bait. 1 for 3 but with all the bait felt there should have been more fish. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  13. I'm not familiar with chinook pier, is there signs or a road name I should look for? Boat trailer parking nearby or do people pull their boats up before putting on a trailer? Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. Is there a place to clean fish in Grand Haven if using the harbor island boat launch? Also might create a new topic, but if anyone launches there this weekend please report how the water levels are. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. I ended up getting a cheap cover on eBay that was designed for a boat with a hard top. Paid about $300 for it and it ended up tearing in a wind storm at the end of the year. I am saving up for a barn (shooting for spring 2020) so I opted to go the cheap route again this year and got another of the same cover. This year i reinforced all the contact points that tore last time and also installed a boat vent to help avoid pooling on the bow like i had last year. My hope is it will last me until I build the barn. Probably would have been better getting a $1,500 custom cover, but I'm stubborn. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
