    Lack of reports

    I suspect they moved north, I've been hearing a lot of good reports out of Ludington and Frankfort Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. You were probably marking lakers and steelhead. I've been finding the kings 100+ feet down scattered anywhere from 130 to 200 feet, in other words super spread out. My guess is with this hot weather they're just not in a hurry to start grouping up and staging yet. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  3. Give it a couple weeks and see if they show up. I remember last year at this time it was dead but by mid August I was killing it. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Bait Report?

    They're gonna be scattered right now. This wind screwed up the the thermocline when it turned the water over so they don't really have a specific depth to gather. A couple weeks ago I had no problem finding them. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  5. Set lines south of Holland in 125 fow at 5:30 and pulled them at 10. I ended up 2 for 4 with a 4# coho and a 3# laker. My hits were all around 135 fow. Here's what took the hits: 1/1 mixed veggies spin doctor with a spongebob meat rig on 300 copper 1/2 big weenie angry alewife with an angry alewife meat rig 45 down on a downrigger 0/1 plain white pro troll flasher with a nose bleed fly on 150 copper Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Meat rigs

    I've never been north of Whitehall during a flip so I guess I can't speak for those ports. I'm pretty sure a buddy of mine gets them in Manistee harbor though Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Meat rigs

    When the water near shore turns over they gather around the piers and you can cast net them up Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  9. I did a solo troll this morning from 5:30 to 11 am and ended up 2/2 with a 1# steelhead and a 25.5# king that could've eaten the steelhead. The steelhead came in 150 fow on a north troll and the king came in 130 fow on a south troll. Here's what took the hits: - Steelhead: spongebob meat rig behind a mixed veggies spin doctor on 300 copper - King: blue fly behind a blue jeans Michigan stinger flasher on 200 copper Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Meat rigs

    I cut the heads off because I don't trust there's enough meat in their head to stay on a rig. I just put mine in half canning salt and half store brand borax, it made the meat leathery tough and they don't go bad in the fridge Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  12. So I have a bunch of preserved brined alewife that a got in May. Would those work in a meat rig? I tested them, they fit my helmets and stay on but I'm hesitant to use them since I've never heard of anyone using them. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
