  1. They have to show up eventually in Muskegon because they have to spawn but it may just he a quick 2 day flurry of craziness before they shoot up. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk
  2. Ran north almost up to GH. Caught a 4 man limit of lake trout, 2 kings and a steelhead. Also lost 2 silver bites. North and South troll, all bites in 110-115. Chrome spinnies with white, pink polka dot spin n glos took all the trout on riggers. But the important stuff... 225 Cu yellow submarine 1/2 (steelhead and lost a silver) 225 Cu RV dancing anchovy 1/1 (king) High diver back 220 hawg wild sd moo moo meat 1/1 (23 lb king) High diver back 200 blue frog sd blue meat 0/1 Never saw this bite! We checked all our meat and the strip was gone but 2 big scales were left on the treble hook! Must've bit in the wee hours of the morning when you couldn't see your hand in front of your face. Thank goodness for trout man... Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    Not bad! What do you think the bite on the meat you missed was? Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    Would anyone go as far as to say they five as deep as magnum dipseys? They really would help on my small boat. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk
  6. Had some steady king action at least early on. Started in 110 and worked our way out to 150. Best action was 150 where we finally found some cold water at 80 foot down, although we did have a few bites inside of that depth. We ended 5-9, all fish lost were silver. Started north and worked south all morning. 1-2 rigger down 80 glow meat rig UV green spinny (steelhead) 0-2 braid diver back 180 blue meat rig UV blue spinny 1/1 wire diver 140 back 10" nbk spinny proctologist fly (20 lb king) 0/1 wire diver back 160 yellow meat rig UV mixed veggie spinny 1/1 braid diver back 200 chrome mtn dew proctologist fly (king) 525 copper (yes you heard me) nbk spinny proctologist fly 1/1 (lake trout) 1/1 225 Cu super slim UV JagerBomb (steel) Would've been nice to land a few more of those kings. I guess the meat rig hooks weren't working quite right. All fish really put a hammer down on the rods and screamed drag but got unbuttoned within a minute. Good luck to anyone fishing Big Red this weekend! I'm not fishing it and just thought I'd stir the pot. Hehe. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    It was a bit excessive lol. Needed something to get down in the cold water, it caught a fish so I can't complain but I shudder to think of trying to reel in a 20 lb king on it. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    No sir, it's actually a lead core free boat and the rig was not very far off the ball. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    Dipsy Diver Colors

    Yes 8' from the dipsy to the spinny is what I prefer. If I had a bigger boat I'd run longer. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    Nice job! Describe these homemade spinnys to me. It's pretty rewarding when you can catch fish on stuff outside the status quo. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    Yup. White mouth, square tail, green back. PIG steelhead! Measurements or not that's one heck of a fish. Congrats! Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    I could be wrong and I would have to see it from a different angle but the tail, mouth and color on that hog make me think that it IS a steelhead! Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk

    Meat rigs

    The online stuff works well too! Much easier that's for sure. Familiar Bite makes very good strips, sometimes I even re freeze them and use them again. Just don't spend money on Dreamweaver strips, they use ballyhoo and it just isn't the same in any aspect. Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk

    Muskegon 7/14 & 7/15 AM

    At least there's been quite a few steelhead around this year. I don't get it, one of the best springs ever and then they vanish completely! I know they'll be back soon but it certainly seems like it's getting worse before it gets better. Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk

    Looks like you got a couple steelhead there. You can tell by the white mouths, circular rounded head and the straight non forked tail. Nice fish, thanks for the report! Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk
  16. Tough day, sometimes you just gotta be thankful for trout. We went 10/11 fishing 90-110 fow just north of spyglass mostly. All trout. Only had one silver bite all morning and it really was a pig. I don't think I've heard a dipsy rod scream like that before, but only for a second because he broke the fly leader. 400 Cu mtn dew spinny/yellow bead mirage fly 1/1 300 Cu UV mixed veggie spinny/proctologist fly 1/1 High diver back 140 net minders showtime spinny/ Blue bubble fly 0/1 (silver) Rigger bottom UV frog spinny/ watermellon spin n glo 3/3 Rigger bottom UV frog spinny/pink dot spn n glo 5/5 Trout are real small this year, all about 3 lbs for us all year. Anybody find any silvers today? Awfully quiet on the radio! Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk

    Wow, congrats!! What depth was best for you? Don't like keeping steelhead? Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk
  18. Haven't posted on here in a while. Have been putting my reports on another site I'm sure you are all familiar with, but I hope to be consistent with this one as well. Sometimes after you get up at 4:30 and fish all day it's hard to sit down and write a report! Well anyway, slow for us. We went north out of PS to 80 FOW hoping to put at least a couple silver in the box early. We ended 3/3. Rigger went right off the bat at 60 with the smallest toss back shaker I've ever caught. Then went 10 minutes later with a nice 9 lb steel. The set up was an 8" fish scale paddle with a uv arctic blast fly. Trolled around forever and then finally had the 200 Cu go in 140 fow with a 7-8 lb brown!! Spoon was a mag moonshine yellow submarine. That was all she wrote. Brown was unclipped too!!

  21. I haven't been out yet myself but the charters are slamming lake trout as always. Seems like they were getting coho and kings inshore a couple weeks ago but that seems to have died. Should be another weekend and we'll be hammering them like St Joe right now.
  22. Glad you got something to show for the effort. Thanks for the heads up about the dredge.
  23. Congratulations, what a beut! Sent from my LGL62VL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    PS 5/29 AM

    I've also found recently that most of my fish even in July and august Dont come on flies so much. As we get further in the year I'll switch to a spoon, plug and meat program and generally won't run as many flies.
  25. PS 5/29 AM Went 14/15 all kings. stayed in about 140 FOW south trolling north and south. The bite was hot and heavy right away as we had most of our fish in the first hour or so. It got pretty quiet as the sun came up all the way.
