  1. This makes me nervous, as I don't want a repeat of those lean years where a big, mature fish was 12 pounds. But, I think the state has a good handle on what they are doing, so fingers crossed. It will be great to get some stocking in ports further south that used to produce great salmon runs. Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  3. We did a late trip Wednesday night. We left the dock at 7 and had lines set by 8. We fished water 118 to 90 FOW on a NE troll. We finished with 2 young kings, a nice coho, and a 25# king. My daughter thought it would be fun to pose with the fish over her head tonight. [emoji1] The 250 Cu with a Mag Yeck Wartfrog fired at 8:20. We boated a nice Coho. At 8:38 the heavy wire slide diver out 120 with a green knight spoon took young king. We reset it, but this time only out 100 feet and 17 minutes later it fired again with another young king. Another 15 minutes went by (so around 9:15) and a 200 Cu with a glow Submarine spoon took our last fish of the night. It was a 25# king. This one she couldn't lift over her head. [emoji38] Then we pulled lines. Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  10. Nice solo net job. I have found extending my net handle is really helpful when netting by myself. Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  12. I took the morning off work and took my girls out for a trip. One stayed in the cuddy cabin sleeping most of the time though! She's not much of an early bird. We decided to try some deeper water to see what we could find. We left port and headed west. I started setting lines in 160 FOW and we worked west. Everything fired today except a 100 Cu Craigs Flounder which I took off after a couple of hours and a 300 Cu with a Magnum Green Knight.

  13. Great solo trip! They are often hard to find and dial in with a three rod spread.
  14. Awesome job finding those fish. Thanks for the report. Did you find mature kings that far out or were they younger kings? Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. I have people I only invite to fish on evening trips, because when I invite them in the morning they want to leave the dock at 7:30. Great job getting on them early. Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  18. That big king buried the board and had a huge initial run. It somehow managed to take the whole setup waaaay beyond and outside the 250 Cu that was outside of it, but nothing tangled. Here she is showing me how red her hands are from reeling. [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  19. I remember watching the Ludington fireworks from the boat when I was a kid. When they ended, we looked West and the fireworks were just getting started in Wisconsin. Because of the curvature of the earth, we only saw the top half the explosion. The lake would block the rest. Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  20. Fishing was slow for all boats I talked to out of Pentwater on Saturday morning. We talked to 3 charter captains and they got 8 fish between the three of them with nothing over 10 pounds. We got a 21 # king, a decent laker and a small, throwback king. Started in 130 and worked out to 190. Had decent marks between 160 and 175. Both kings came on a 300 Cu with 2 colors of Pb added and a magnum green knight spoon in 161 and 170 fow. The laker hit on a 250 Cu with a Bad Toad RV spoon. We fished water between 120 feet down and 50 feet down. Temps were in the mid 40s 100 feet down. I'm hoping it picks up soon. There are big fish around, but they seem to be really scattered.

  21. The 4 boats I talked to the had fish, set up on them early in 75 to 90 fow and that was it. They each had 1 fish. Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  22. Me and two other boats finished 0 for 0. I did find a boat that got 1 king in 86 FOW. It was their only bite. We fished 70 FOW to 180 FOW and threw everything at them. FF, meat, plugs and spoons. We worked 40 to 90 feet down. It was 44 degrees 70 feet down. Tried all different colors. We didn't target lake trout. We fished south near the dunes. I heard of a boat in Ludington that was 8 for 10 of Big Point Sable. Sent from my SM-G991U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
