  1. Friend Carl got 1 today in around 85’ around 4 miles north.
  2. 2 for 2; laker n steelie, both around 8lbs. Steelie on 300 copper in 114’ on mag bl/gr/silv crippled alewife Gander Mtn spoon; laker on 150 copper on red pepper DW spoon in 140’. No hits on meat, riggers or dipseys. Worked 90-180fow straight out n north of the pier. Speed 2.2-3.1, waves around 1’.
  3. Thanks Was thinking to reschedule for today, but Not because it’s Father’s Day.
  4. Jdh; I hear ya. Anything w/N in it I should probably stay home. Around midnight is was building up at bouy but a 0600 it was 1.2-2.4, so that and fact BS 2-4s was supposed to come down to 1-3s is only reason I didn’t reschedule; well it kind of did come down some at 10:30, but by that time 2 of my crew were chumming and that means pull lines. Sorry Bigbones my radio is still in it’s bag in the cuddy. I monitor 68. I need to pull it out. Guys: Call me anytime on shore or on the water, 517-750-7452. I have 21’ Grady White w/The Reel Woman red lettering on each side. Anyone know what this spoon is called and who makes it? It has caught some nice kings lately and I need more. Going to SJ for new board n release and if anyone knows Phil at Tackle Haven will. No DW in front or Stingray, Stinger or Silver Streak stamped on shiny side; I looked all over online w/no luck. Btw: My 295’ copper broke as I was reeling it in and my Offshore board and a spoon are still on it. Maybe someone farther south will find it and call me. My name n number are on it. Next scheduled trip is Friday, with old neighbors in Jackson. Thks.
  5. Well on a short trip ended up 2 for 4; 16 and 9lb kings; had a double on when we got big king. Big King came on 300 copper on mag bk/gr/sil hologram spoon; 200 copper one we lost was on uv blue jeans; 9 lb king on CJKing suv smurf meat rig on SB rigger down 61’. Steelhead we lost came on CJ King green glo frog meat rig on dipsey on 3 out 168’. Was rough out there; 2-4s quickly turned to 3-5s, some of crew weren’t feeling good and we pulled lines at 11. Set around 8:15. Went north and trolled south with waves. All fish caught in 108fow. Again Noaa marine weather blew it.
  6. Thanks for good report. Last time, got first fish in 160’ and went deeper with nothing; came back to 160 and got 7. I should know better to leave fish to find fish. Duh. Taking new crew out Saturday. Thanks, again.
  7. Thanks for great report. Didn’t see any meat rigs in your report. Last trip 18 n 16 lb kings were on meat on dipseys. Meat may get you some king bites. Next trip in addition to 2 dipseys going to add meat to 1 rigger. Hood Outdoor s has meat strips. Was supposed to fish today but crew was too busy to take off work to fish.
  8. Thanks for great report. The low hookup rate was probably due to coho hits; they usually hit very light and this year especially. Didn’t see any meat rigs in your report. Last trip 18 n 16 lb kings were on meat on dipseys. Next trip in addition to 2 dipseys going to add meat to 1 rigger. Hood Outdoor s has meat strips. Was supposed to fish today but crew was too busy to take off work to fish.
  9. Ill change the meat rigs up a little. Like last week in Holland my friend from Middleville wanted to run Keven’s Girlfriend flasher n meat rig which we ran and got a nice king on. I usually run Kev Grlfd with pickle sunshine fly like a lot of guys do. Besides CJKings Ghostbuster and Gr Glo Frog meat rigs/flasher I also usually run his Smurf SUV meat rig/flasher. All 3 do well for me. Next Wednesday here in Soha besides meat on the 2 dipseys going to run Smurf meat rig on Port side SW rigger.’ Both dipseys w/meat got the big kings Wednesday. SW is 1C lead core between rigger braided line and mono leader. I’m running little pool between it n reg rigger line w/o SW. So far SW has done better than reg; idea is 1c will drop the bait below the ball a little.
  10. Ill be fishing in Frankfort mid August like I do every year.
  11. Went 8 for 8, 5 kings, 2 coho n 1 laker all in 160’ just little north of piers. 1 small king, laker n coho on red pepper DW SS spoon on 150’ copper. 18-2 n 16-2 kings on dipseys on 3 out 160’, 1 on Capt John. king Ghostbusters and Gr Glo Frog flashers n neat rigs. 8-2 king on 300’ copper on mag gr/bl/wh mag spoon. Small coho n king on 200 n 225’ copper on mag rv fldr pdr No fish on either rigger. 2-3s out of nw buiktbup to 2-4s for a while until it cane diwn to 1-2s as predicted. North n south trolls took fish ascwell as 1 west turn. Usual 2.2-3.2 SOG. Cloudy most of day but sun out after 1.
  12. Yep; my Honda pushes The Reel Woman around 28mph so about 1/2 hr run.
  13. Thks. That came up when I Googled it, but wasn’t much info on the launch. Thanks again.
  14. Am debating on whether to run up the lake from here, 15 miles, or launch there.
  15. Thks. That came up when I Googled it, but wasn’t much info on the launch. Thanks again.
  16. Thks. That came up when I Googled it, but wasn’t much info on the launch. I just looked it up and that’s the one on west side of 196 that I pass all the time. Must not be no wake until you get into town; otherwise would take a long time to get to Big Blue from there. Thanks again.
  17. Any good boat launches in Saugatuck for 21’ boat? Never launched there. Thks.
  18. But, wouldn’t you prefer decent seas as predicted and a little drier lawn? My Grady can take it and we can fish it, but when it gets to 3-5s time to soon pull lines. It really beats you up.
  19. 3 for 3; 13.3 and 10.75lb king n 1.75lb Coho. 1st king around 10:30 trolling south, downhill in 131 fow by condos south of the piers on Kevin’s girlfriend flasher and matching gr meat rig on big dipsey set on 1 out 131’, aka around 60’ down; around 1:30 other king on 225’ copper on mag blue jeans uv spoon in 121’; I had just started west turn n hit. Windfinder, iwindsurh, noaa marine all lied. Supposed to be 1’ building to 1-2s, started at 1-3s n build to 3-5s with a few 6s around 4:30. Lost a long time of late morning fishing because the king on my dipsey also tangled our 200 n 300copper. But, always a great day on Big Blue.. Reply Go
