  1. Ditchmafia: I live here now so will be my first fall fishing here. if I get out this week or next I’ll run some high lines in the river and around the pier heads. Then run out to maybe 50-130’. Covering top to mid water for steelies and down to 80’ or so for maybe some 3 yr old kings. Most of steelies we caught this yr were 40-60’ down.
  2. Thks. I’ll be out a few more times. Saw guy last week at fish cleaning had 4 smaller lakers he got in 120’ and one guy in small boat got a dark king in the river. It Il Do charter is running 4 boards n 2 riggers up n down the river and heard that day they had 2 rips but no one home.
  3. Saw a report that Monday a wall of kings came in to the Betsie. But, there should still be some straggler 4 yr olds, 3 yrs and lakers and steelies. We got a decent amount of marks for this time of year. Stopped at Manistee launch on the way up. So sad. Only six tow vehicles in the parking lot with just a few boats doing harbor patrol. I was surprised that Frankfort launch lot was full. I had to park on the grass. Didn’t hear of any catches and no one was at the fish cleaning station. Heard someone got a king Thursday night and a laker was caught yesterday. Pretty bad. We marked some decent bait balls and one was the largest I’ve ever seen. Think in like 120fow it lit up the entire screen on my Lowrance. Crazy! Getting new steering cable installed this week, but will be out here in SoHa until mid October, then will put her to bed for the winter.
  4. Fished south of the pier to the Point from 7:30 to 2 with 8 lines in the water and only 1 15” coho that we threw back.
  5. Only 1 for 3. Got nice steelhead on CJohn King Ghostbuster flasher n meat rig on rigger down 85’ in 136fow. Steelie got off earlier in 118’ on pink akewife spoon on rigger down 86’. That spoon again released a few times with no one home. Fished 8:30-1, 85-165fow, sog 1.8-3.2. Waves 1-3s, 1-3s nw.
  6. 4 for 6 today, 2 lakers, a steelhead and small coho we threw back. All fish in 118-122 fow around 10am. Had double on the 200 cu and dipsey. Got small laker on blue bubble SD and blue bubble fly; steelie on dipsey on 3 back 165’ on mag modified green dolphin; and laker on 200cu on john king ghostbuster spoon. Had short rips on 300 and 225 cu but didn’t hookup. Fished from 90-180. Some nice marks and some bait fish in 180. Sog 2.2-3.2.
  7. Went 2 for 3; 15 lb and 18 pound king. 18lb on 200cu in 128’ on west troll on mag green dolphin; 15lb on CJKing 4.65 Ghostbuster spoon on 300cu on north troll. In 118’ on west troll long run on dipsey on 3 out 160 after long runs got off.
  8. Yep, got 17lb king on green dolphin last Tuesday here in SoHa.
  9. 2-3s were actually 3-5s; fished 8-12:30; 1 17lb 6 oz female, natural reproduction king on mag green dolphin on rigger 71’ down in 118fow. sog usual 2-3.2. King came on south troll. 6 lines in the water and no other hits. Fished 80-130fow.
  10. GAC: Yes city launch is accessible. You have to follow the detour signs, or from Phoenix take Bailey north to Wells round about then go west on Well or take Wells west off the Blue Star. All 5 docks are almost always above water. Sometimes the 3 on the left the aprons are under water. I've always used the 2 east ones and have never had to wade in a few inches of water. They have always been dry. Good luck.
  11. My local tackle shop said the DNR banned frozen herring last April. I’ve never heard that.
  12. Headed up there mid August for annual trip to take friend and his wife out. Will be fishing meat program deep (if thermocline builds up) like we usually do. Hope some kings show up then.
  13. 2 lakers on mag green dolphin down 67’ onthe rigger. One in 67’ and one in 109’. Nothing on Laker Taker on the bottom later or 225’ and 300’ copper or dipseys. Beautiful day; 1’ waves. Sog 1.8-3.0. Fished 60-150fow. Another boat at fish cleaning had 2 lakers.
