  1. Thanks they are definitely chunky this year Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. We fished 120-160fow trying for kings all morning without a bite. We decided to motor out to 280fow and fish to 300fow. Things started slow for us, but once we got the depth dialed in the fish started hitting the deck! Our best water depth was 290-300fow on a south troll with baits down 95-110ft. We landed 2 coho and a trout and missed the same amount all within about an hour before we had to pull lines. Our Michigan Stinger spoons did most of the damage on our riggers. It was a perfect day to be on the water even with a slow morning of fishing! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  3. We struggled to put fish in the boat for the Holland Big Red Classic Tournament on Sunday. We weren't able to pre fish on Friday due to the waves and day 1 of the tournament got cancelled on Saturday due to waves. Sunday was a one day shootout and was basically a shot in the dark after the big blow. We fished from 85-150fow and managed to land 2 kings and a small trout. This weekend definitely did not go the way we would have hoped, but that's all part of this sport. This was the last tournament of the year and overall we had a great tournament season and can't wait to finish out the season fun fishing! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

  5. We made a last minute decision on Sunday morning to head to Northpoint. We decided after reading the weather buoys that were still showing almost 4ft waves that we were better off launching out of Winthrop Harbor and making a shorter run. Our best water depth was 270-300 with 290 being the hottest. We used our fish hawk to find 50 degree water down 70ft and ran most of our spread in the 50-75ft range. We had most of our action on Michigan Stinger spoons on our Big Jon downriggers and Morgan's coppers pulled behind Church Tackle TX-44 boards. We ended up with our 3 man limit of nice chunky coho and steelhead we lost at least 10 or more than we boated, but that's why it's fishing and not catching! We are getting ready to fish our final big tournament of the season this weekend the Holland Big Red Classic and we can't wait! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. Quick report we fished 70-90fow in Illinois waters on Friday afternoon and Sunday morning. We went 0-1 on Friday with about an hour of lines in the water. Sunday we went to the same area and did well we landed 5 silver fish and 5 lake trout while losing about the same. Our best baits for the lakers where Michigan Stinger spoons on 200ft and 300ft of morgans copper pulled behind church tackle TX-44 boards. Our hot colors where UV mixed veggie and UV green gator. Our silver fish came on an assortment of stinger spoons down 20-75 ft. We had a great time taking some Lake Michigan first timers out and we got them some nice fish with the biggest trout weighing almost 18lbs! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

  11. We fished the Ludington Offshore Classic Tournament in Ludington, MI for the first time ever! We prefished Friday and had a hard time finding the big ones. After we struggled prefishing on Friday we were unsure what the tournament day was going to bring. We struggled to keep the fish hooked up in the morning causing us to go 0-3 early then the bite died. We started to lose hope when all of a sudden the wire slide diver goes off with a decent sized king! While fighting that fish the 300 copper goes off with a big king and breaks the line, but we ended up landing a 12lb king from the diver and for the next 45 minutes fishing was incredible. We had a another double and ended up taking a 20.75lb king and a 15lb king along with 5 other fish all in less than an hour then the bite died and we never had another bite the rest of the day. It definitely proved once again that things can change so fast on the big lakes good or bad. We weighed in our catch and it was good enough to put us in 12th place out of 49 boats. We had planned on improving on day 2 but unfortunately it was cancelled due to high winds and waves. We fished mainly 100-150fow on the bank near big point. Most of our bites came from 35-75ft down with Michigan Stinger spoons taking our 2 biggest kings in the patterns UV mixed veggie and UV blue dolphin. We had a great time in Ludington and will definitely be back! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
