  1. Find the outside edge of the mud in Grand Haven and there should be more and more steelhead showing up, anywhere from 60-120’ can be great on any given day. We went 9/17 in 2.5hrs in 100fow straight out a couple falls ago the first week of November. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. https://grandrapids.craigslist.org/boa/d/2004-aquasport-215-explorer/6639514634.html Regretfully looking to sell my baby of the last 4 seasons as I'm planning on going bigger next season and put something in a slip (at the request of the boss). This has been an awesome rig and an absolute joy to fish out of especially since repowering and adding all new electronics within the last year. Highlights include a Garmin 8212 touchscreen unit with 1000kw Chirp transducer, chirp down scan, chirp side scan, Reactor autopilot integrated with unit and upgraded mapping card with Autoguidance capability. Brand new Fusion radio with blue tooth, Coastal night lights blue/white underwater transom lights, Fishhawk X4 and Lenco electric trim tabs. All rod holders and downriggers are included, one of the Cannon 10STX was just replaced brand new by Cannon on warranty in July 2018. The motor was rigged in February 2018 and included digital throttle control at the press of a button on the gauges for speed control at trolling speeds. Fuel burn numbers are .4-.6gph at trolling speeds, 3.4-3.6mpg at 32mph cruise, and 2.4-2.6mpg at 42mph top end (I've seen 45mph with a light load and a small tail wind on calm water). This thing fishes big and trailers easily with a half ton truck. I have some on the water videos of the motor, trolling mode, and boat layout (while fighting fish) from early August and will share with anyone seriously interested so you can see the rig in action. It is located in Grand Haven, MI and available to view, water test, and/or survey until the snow flies. Asking $38,000. Don't hesitate to contact me @ 616-five one four-8640 with any questions, thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  3. Basically nothing in Grand Haven, we tried it Thursday night and took one mature king at sunset but didn’t lift a rod in 3hrs otherwise. Was surprised to not even find any steelhead or coho in there. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  4. We took a mature coho Saturday night off grand Haven before we had to get off the lake due to a sick rider. They should show up this week with the oncoming weather pattern. I believe most of our king’s have been staging further north and at least some will get blown down here this week as well Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    2 and 3 color lead backer

    Load them up with 50lb braid, splice in a section of mono if the board clips you use will need that to keep it in place. No sense risking a loss of the whole rig by not having enough line. That backer will last you 10yrs so we’ll worth the extra cost Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  9. Beautiful evening so just had to hit the water with the gf. Decided to take her pup who has never been on a boat before to see how he’d do. Things were going very well there so we threw a few lines in the water to see what we could find. Had lines in from 6:30-9:30pm and finished 6/7. Yellow jeans flasher with yellow dot spin n glow was 4/5 on rigger on bottom, all trout. Blue chrome 8” spinnie with blue bubble fly on 300 copper took a 20lb king and a 250 copper with UV Blue Dolphin stingray took a 6lb king. The kings came on a double header around 8:30pm. 120-140fow was best and they wanted it slow 2.1-2.3 at the ball, SW and NE trolls. Good number of bait bails in the top 40ft in that area of the water. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  11. No problem thanks Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  12. If it’s a Big Bird painted orange or an orange Zboard, both would have a Sam’s pro release on the front and either a church lockjaw or red OR19 clip on the back, then it’s probably mine. I lost 2 on Saturday morning, complete fluke haven’t lost one in over a year. Let me know if that is what you found, Kevin @ 616-514-8640. Thanks!

    Great report! How deep did you find them on Sunday? We ran up that way in the morning and fishing was slower than the previous couple days for us Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. I left a large soft cooler, grey in color with a black top and a couple of sweatshirts on the ground next to my boat tonight and took off without them at the Grand Haven launch. This was around 10pm or so. By the time I realized and made it back to the launch an hour later they were gone. If anyone on here was there and grabbed them hoping to return them please let me know. I just bought the cooler 5 days ago, not a fun way to end the night after a stellar evening of fishing. Kevin @ 616-514-8640 Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. Fishing out of Grand Haven tomorrow (5/19) morning and have 3-4 open seats otherwise I plan on going solo. I have all the gear needed and don't want gas money but would welcome anyone that wants to get out on the lake. Bring your own food/drinks, fishing from 6/6:30 until noon or so depending on the fishing and weather, launching from the Grand Haven municipal launch on Coho Dr. Pictured is the boat and a few fish we've found this week. The boat is fully rigged with a brand new Yamaha outboard and all necessary safety equipment and electronics including autopilot. Shoot me a message if you're interested in joining.... 616-514-8640
