  1. I just launched from the South Haven public launch. One dock is in.
  2. Trolled the Black river for a few hours on Sunday. Went 2-4, mag lips 40-60 back. Did not make it out to the channel or in front of the pier heads because of the waves. Water was a little dirty and still had a few chunks of ice floating.
  3. That is a mag lip. Similar to a flat fish lure. Made by Yakima. The size is 3.5
  4. Fished the Black river on 12-10 solo, trolled 3.5 mag lips 45-60 back landed 7 nice steelhead. Fished from drawbridge to Blue Star bridge, did not try out by the pier heads.
  5. I know this is not about Lake Michigan salmon but no one looks at the Erie walleye posts. If anyone is looking to catch lots of walleye we killed them the last few days. We trolled and jigged and got them both ways. If anyone is interested in the details you can PM me. We fished out of Port Clinton. Easily over 100 caught in 3 and a half days.
  6. Started out trying for coho. Got 2 lost 1, then went out to 40 feet and hammered the lake trout. I bet we caught 25 plus. Kept 9 lakers and ended with 5 coho. Lakers were all caught with divers with spin and glos and riggers with orange spoons near bottom. The lakers were puking up baitfish. Had several doubles and triples.
  7. It was slow but steady today for me on a solo trip today. Caught 8 coho, kept 5. 20-25 feet of water, Brad’s thin fins and mag lips, gold and orange, 60-90 back.
  8. 3 for 5 on steelhead. Mag lips 50-70 back. Channel is almost clear of ice. Talked to a guy on shore who claimed to have caught a coho.
  9. Fished South Haven from 430p-815, got 2 kings, both around 12 pounds, 1 lake trout around 10 pounds and 2 throw back lakers. Lost 2 other kings and one other fish that I think was a laker. Kings came on 300 copper with green glow spin doctor and green fly and meat rig on a wire diver 130 back on a 2 setting. Lost a king on a 200 copper with a mag modified blue dolphin spoon and on wire diver meat rig back 110 on 2 setting. We fished from 80-130 but all fish came from 90-110, marked a few fish but lots of bait. We ran 3, 5 and 7 colors because I heard a report of people catching steelhead but non of those took a hit. Took my son’s friend out and he got to reel in his first king, he will never be able to go back to blue gills again. Great night out on the water, calm, only a few flies and we caught silver fish in June. Happy Father’s Day. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  10. Another good trip out oh South Haven. Set lines just before 4pm in 125 feet of water. Worked to 170 and back to 135. Caught fish pretty consistent throughout the evening. No depth seemed better than others. Salmon seemed a little higher in the water. 7 color went 4 times, free sliders on riggers down 60 and 75 both took fish as did 200 and 300 coppers. Kept 6 kings, threw back 5 lake trout including a 21 pounder that swam away nicely from the boat. Big king was just over 18 pounds. Pulled lines at 8pm.

  11. Fished South Haven, north, 110-150 feet of water. Went 13 for 15. Kept 5 kings and 5 lakers. Threw back 3 lakers. 300 coppers, riggers down 60 and 75 with free sliders and wire diver back 160 on 2 setting were all good. Couple of kings in the high teens. Could not edit the title but we were actually 13 for 15. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  12. We went 19 for 27. Kept 14 kings and coho, released 5 lakers. All spoons, mostly moonshine. 300 coppers, riggers down 60 and 75, wire diver on 2 setting back 160 and free sliders on riggers were our best but all poles took fish. 110-140 feet of water. No kids today so it was a little easier. Biggest king was just under 20 pounds, several other in the high teens. We fished from 630a -1p. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  13. Fished 4p to 8p. Went 5 for 8. 2 kings, 2 lakers and one coho. Big king was 22.5 pounds. 90-115 feet of water. All spoons. 300 copper, 200 copper and full core with moonshine spoons and rigger down 70 all took hits. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. We were 7 for 12. 4 kings and 3 lakers. Lost a couple of nice kings at the back of the boat. Hard for the kids to get the big ones in. Anyway, 300 coppers with moonshine UV blue jeans and UV hulk were our best baits. Also caught one on a full core and a 150 copper. Had a couple hits on riggers 75 down and 55 down but they did not stay on. 85-110 feet of water. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. The water is high and I think some of the private marinas are closed. The city launch is open and the bridge is working. Fish cleaning station is closed. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
