  1. Not sure where you got the report of big kings here in SoHa; maybe some charters found a few. Mostly still lakers. Here in SoHa may switch to perching for a few weeks which I haven’t done in years. Boat gets winterized 10/12.
  2. IMG_1219.mov Was honored along with about 35 other boats to take veterans Frank and Dave fishing. Dave got an 8lb laker and Frank a 10lb. Big boat parade on way in.

  6. Thanks. I am on 3 Lake Mich fishing forums and no one makes reports. In a typical weekend there are hundreds of fisherman out and you may get one or two reports in just a few ports. I don’t understand.

  10. You now that you mentioned it I looked at my photos again to see whiter top n bottom gums. Si I agree a Ho. They are sooo close. Remember a few years ago when guy had a state record record size Coho and it took MDNR like a mobth with scale samples, etc to finally determine it was a Ho. Same here, so what do I know FBD. Next trip scheduled for next Wednesday; If fish are still here will be SoHa, otherwise Holland.
  11. Btw: we fished a little north of piers: 26.4 north area.
  12. No. We set lines around 7:30 or so in about 90’. There were two boats out there but we just kept trolling out because at buoy there was no thermo and we had no marks. Tuesday morning we had heard a lot of bait n fish were in 80-100’. . When we were out in 140 talked to a guy on the radio who said they had done well in 120-130 earlier and there were 3 or 4 boats circling that area, we we didn’t see any nets gets wet.By then he had said it slowed down. For SoHa had quite a few marks in 133-155 area. Were very consistent around 75’ down and 110’ down. And, we had a lot of lookers at the meat, aka the graph mark heading up as screen moves. In 120’ it was 68 in top and 58 at 90! down, still not much of a thermo.

  18. Yep you have a perfect location. I’m 25 from SJoe and Holland and 75 to Muskegon but from where I fish late August, Manistee and Frankfort, 3 1/2 and 4 hrs away.
  19. Thanks. Next week probably Holland, friend did well in 170’ there yesterday afternoon. Have to start following the fishies north. When I lived in Jackson and we got the sloooow fishin here July was walleye month out of Monroe and east fishin for eyes. Same fishin as for coho jacks in skinny water in late March n April here n SJoe. Not sure where charters fish here. Probably 60-80’ for lakers or way out in middle of the lake. Haven’t heard of many kings caught here at all. Think we’ve gotten 2. No fish in shallow water in May like usual; think because we had no spring rain. All, have a great Independence Day weekend and be safe. And, if you are out on the water with all the weekend boaters/fisherman be especially watchful.

  21. In SoHa this spring very few kings; none in 55’ in May. But, 115-170’ we are knocking off some nice size Coho n Steelies.
  22. Good job; agree on cottonwoods, see my 6/11 report about losing a fish due to having to clear them.
