  1. Nice job. That's got to be tricky netting by yourself if it's a little bumpy out.

  3. It was worse a two weeks ago than it was in the spring. Still usable. Wear boots. Don't pay for the parking fee. It's free. 80% of the lot was under water a two weeks ago.

  5. Took my son out for his birthday. Launched at 9 am. Marked tons of bait and arches in 80 - 100 fow south of the pier. Fished 80 fow out to 150 fow. Had a miss in 150 fow on a 200 Cu, RV green flounder. Picked up a nice coho in 80 fow on a 300 Cu, blue haze paddle and meat rig. That was it. Pulled lines at 1:30. Thought about going deeper, but had a buddy that went out to 300 fow and back without a bump. Decided to stay in where we were at least marking fish and try and force feed them.

  7. Nice night to be out there....but man, I hate it when you don't even get a bump. Sent from my LG-Q710AL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  8. My high divers are braid. 10' poles. Biggest reason for wire is they get deep better. No need to run them high. There is a theory of the electrical benefits from the wire attacking fish, but I am not aware of any scientific studies proving that. There is a lot of negatives with wire setups and if there is no need to go deep, why introduce the negatives into your spread? For negatives - (1) there is zero stretch in the wire (same can be said for braid), (2) wire can get stuck in the rollers which is a big problem with a big, head-banging king, (3) if the wire is down, a fish at the boat can run into them and easily cut the line. Those last two have happened to me this year. There is no way I would run 4 wire rods. The high diver being the longer rod with the shorter wire diver rod on the inside is good practice though.

  9. Minor repairs to the boat. So we were back in action for the small, Michigan Sportsman tournament in Muskegon this AM. Heard the fishing hasn't been that great, so I decide to check the often overlooked water - that inside water less than 50 feet. Marked tons of bait with big arches around them in 48 fow. Tons of bait and fish. However, none of them would bite. Buggers. Started sliding out. Worked out to 200 fow with no hits. Spun around and tried an East troll. In 160 fow the starboard slide diver out 111' (about 30' deep) took a hit. The big guy peeled off 350' of line in his first run. My brother boated his person best king - 25 pounds. No other hits. We got him on a blue flounder pounder. We tried meat, spoons, flies and plugs. Covered 20' down to 65'. Temp break was about 35' down, but did vary significantly depending on your fow. Not many fish were caught in the tourney. Biggest was 27 pounds. Ours was 2nd biggest. Felt good to get the skunk out of the box. Got him around 10:45 am.

  10. Wow. You had to go deep to find them. Nice job. Sent from my LG-Q710AL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  11. Nice king. It's crazy to me how big these fish are. I remember about 4 years ago I think, we didn't get a fish over 20 pounds all year. Sent from my LG-Q710AL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  13. All the notes are in my notebook, which is in the boat, which is getting repaired...but from memory...here we go. Passed a bunch of boats that were set up in 130 FOW on our way out at 6 PM. Hit the brakes at 215 FOW and set lines. Worked into 190 and picked up a nice steelhead on a 100 Cu double orange crush. Buy that time most of those boats in 130 had moved out to 190. Got two more steelhead hits on that same setup (boated one of them). Once in the 180s and nother around 170 fow. Picked up a chubby, angry coho down 40 on a rigger in the 150 range (blue flounder pounder). Picked up a 12 pound steelhead on a 200 Cu with a small greenish paddle and fly. Found a lot of bait around 110 FOW, but no big arches. Didn't mark may fish. Worked water from 215 into 87 fow but never had a king hit. For the most part, we were straight out front. Finished with good steelhead and an 8# coho. Just before we were going to pull lines, the engine stopped. Got it going again for a few seconds and it puttered out. Seemed like it wasn't getting fuel. Not sure what the problem was. Made good use of my tow insurance though. There's a kicker motor in my future at some point, just have to get some house projects done for my wife first. Anyway, not sure where the kings were. I heard some guys were doing about a 10 mile run south to find some. Hopefully my boat can be fixed and we can get back on the water soon.
