  1. Headed out of Linwood on Thursday and and Friday. Does anyone have a suggestion on FOW to target? I heard the NE wind was blowing pretty good today. I'm not sure how that will affect things. Sent from my SM-G970U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. Here's the king Sent from my SM-G970U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  3. Didn't find much inside last night so we decided to work deep. We fished a 6 rod spread 180 to 280 FOW West of the pier and North where there is some deep water structure. Ran some steelhead and king setups. Tried all troll directions. There is some warmer water out there. We fished the cold water on the E side, worked though the warm water and worked the cold on the deep side. Never marked any bait. Marked 2 fish on bottom at 200'. We only had lines down for 3 hours as my fishing buddy decided to go bale hay instead of trying inside. We didn't target trout. So I guess with this trip I can only tell you where not to go.

  4. We struggled in Pentwater tonight. We ran a 6 rod spread and covered from the surface down to about 70' deep. We worked 70' of water out to 188' of water. We got a small coho and a 23 pound King around a 185' of water. The king hit on a N trolls, 2.4 mph at the ball on a Moonshine wonderbread RV spoon on a high diver out 150. The coho hit on a free slider that was blue and silver. The bait was probably around 25' as the cannonball was at 50'. 100 Cu, 200 Cu and 300 Cu didn't get touched. Same with riggers and the wire diver. We ddn't mark any bait this trip. Nothing on meat or flies. We will try again in the morning and focus on some deeper water.

  5. I remember a trip we were putting fish #9 in the box at 7 am. Guys were still motoring past us to get set up. The bite shut off that day a little after 8. Sent from my SM-G970U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  6. Great report. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G970U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  7. I've been catching those coho on some of my magnum moonshine spoons. They can barely fit the hook in their mouth but they are aggressive fish and they'll nail them. Beautiful color on that king.
  8. We marked some bait about 40 - 50 feet down in 205-ish FOW. We did have the occasional arch on the screen, but overall it was pretty quiet on the sonar.
  9. We started in 155 FOW about a mile north of the dunes with a 9 rod spread and trolled WSW. At 225 FOW we spun it around and headed SE. We hadn't marked a fish or had a hit so I took off the big silver paddle and fly thinking it may be throwing too much flash and moved to a white paddle and fly. We started getting into the fish once we got west of the dunes. Here's what worked: Time FOW Toll Fish Bait Pole 7:00 PM 211 SSE King Moonshine Hulk RV Wire heavy slide diver, 1.5 setting out 180 7:30 PM 200 SE Coho Blue Jeans RV 200 Cu 7:57 PM 209 S Steelhead Dancing Anchovy RV 200 Cu 8:08 PM 204 SE Steelhead Blue Jeans RV 200 Cu 8:51 PM 208 SW Steelhead Dancing Anchovy RV 200 Cu 9:00 PM 215 N King Moonshine Ice Shadow Braid slide diver, 1.5 setting out 170 With it being so bright out, it surprised me that the darker Ice Shadow and Hulk spoons took fish. But they've been working well this spring so I kept them in the spread. I'm glad I did. The 100 Cus (orange spoons) didn't get hit. The green spin doctor and meat rig on the 300 Cu didn't get hit. Part way through the trip I added a 250 Cu with an Blue Jeans RV spoon, but that didn't get touched. A Green Jeans spoon on the SWR down in the 50' range wasn't touched. The big paddle (white with a white fly) on the other rigger down 40 wasn't touched either. Overall, it was a great night on the water. Enjoy the pics.
  10. 3 for 4 this morning. 2 cohos and a laker. Cohos came between 20 and 30 FOW. The missed fish was a coho. TONS of bait in there. Based on the radio chatter, it was a very slow morning for most people. Sent from my SM-G970U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  11. How shallow? We haven't spent much time shallow. Sent from my SM-G970U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  12. Lots of bait neat bottom where we were. Got a 12 pound king tonight in 118 fow. Talked to two guys who went deep this AM. (190+) It was a mix of Lakers and coho for them. Sent from my SM-G970U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  13. Quick report...kings are hard to come by. We got one 15 pounder 3 trips so far. 105 to 125 FOW has been the best water for us. We're getting 5 to 6 fish a trip with most being cohos and Lakers. The king hit on the SWR setup with a moonshine spoon. (Pictured.) The rigger ball was at 40 putting the bait around 60. East troll was best. 100 Coppers to 300 Coppers all produced fish. 1 laker on a flasher fly on a rigger down 60. No meat hits. Everything else was spoons. Currently the surface temp is 51ish. Temp is 45.4 degrees 47 ft down. We are heading back out tonight. The kings have to show up some time right? Sent from my SM-G970U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
