  1. Good job; nice boat and setup. Good to see you have rod trees too; wouldn’t be w/o them for my copper n lead core.
  2. I felt same way, but when lake settles after all storms/wind we’ve had, it looks like there are some 3 yr old kings and steelies out there. Yes, and best thing is the fact that we caught juvenile Cohos last two trips is very promising. We don’t target lakers, aka drag dodgers/spin n glows on the bottom; we catch enough on our riggers/Dipseys just by accident. Have a great winter and hope to see you on the water here.
  3. 4 for 5, if count a drum as fish, lol. Trolling south in 60’ got drum near bottom on moonshine flounder pounder on port rigger. Trolling west in 182’ got 3yr old king on SB rigger down 117’’ on mag DW green glo frog spoon with white back. In 180’ on SB side trolling east got nice Steelie on SS DW pink panties on 4 3/4 colors. Lost one port 300’ copper in 187’. Pulling port rigger there was 12” coho that we returned. Had one last week on 18 colors. Nice to see some of them fir next yr. Waves 2-3s or 2-4s and came down to 2s from NE. Usual speed of 2.2-3.2knots.
  4. 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.

  9. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. Btw: we fished a little north of piers: 26.4 north area.
  15. 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.
