  1. Way to go! Lack of reports could be due to the fact that you may very well be the only one trying it. I know south of grand haven there arent a whole lot of guys playing in the mud like the good ol days.
  2. That's how holland and saugatuck charter boats do it. Allows both divers a side to be put on the bottom for trout if need be.
  3. I wonder though, if you put the paddle down why not put a fly on it? Can't hurt, and might pick up another fish or two.
  4. Ivory soap... I've said too much.
  5. Looks like bait to me. You can mark bugs? Sea fleas? Almost seems like the fish moved way north due to the callander and missed the bait..
  6. You're running good baits! If you hit back to back coho, dont forget to hit that mark button on the GPS!
  7. 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
  8. Nov very far at all. Maybe 15 foot. We always being it all the way down to the bottom, wait, then drop it down 2 more times. Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk
  9. 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
  10. Not bad! What do you think the bite on the meat you missed was? Sent from my SM-S727VL using Tapatalk
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
