    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

    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
  5. 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

  8. 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

  10. After 2 weeks of no trolling I finally got back out. We dropped lines at 6:00 and pulled in at 9:00 and ended up 2 for 3 with a 9lb and 16lb king, all just north of Holland in 120 ft. Two hits on a north troll and one on a southwest. Here's what took the hits: 2 - Mixed veggies spin doctor with a spongebob meat rig behind 300 copper 1 - Magnum mixed veggies dreamweaver spoon behind 200 copper Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  11. My friend and I did a short after work outing at sundown. Set lines at 6:30 and went till 9. Ended up 2 for 4 with a 4 lb and 14 lb king. The whole time we trolled 125 to 130 ft. Here's what took the hits 2 - dreamweaver hellfire duv 4 color lead 1 - snot rocket meat rig with a magnum green phantom paddle on a downrigger 65 down 1 - dreamweaver mixed veggies magnum on a downrigger 90 down Every hit was on a north troll Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  12. My dad and I haven't been able to hit the lake all month so we did more recon than anything. We fished from 6:45 to 11:45 just north of Holland. Almost immediately we had a rip and missed it at 140. After going to about 200 and getting nothing we went to 150, marked a few, and took a 21# king. We pulled lines not too long after. Sure hope this cold front loosens them up. Here's what took the hits: Downrigger 50 down w/ mixed veggies dreamweaver 0-1 Downrigger 100 down w/ mixed veggies dreamweaver 1-1 Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  14. We dropped lines at 5:30 am in 110 ft of water, started trolling NW and went over 2 full hours without as much as a release. Around about 8 we got a 16# king at 135 fow on a dipsy diver 275 out on 1.5. Before we could even get that one back out our downrigger 85 down took about the biggest coho I've ever seen (forgot to weigh it). After a brief drought we lost a king at the boat on a downrigger 85 down in 128 fow that I still can't unsee, immediately following that something took a rip at our 14c lead that didn't hook. After an hour drought we took a 17# king on a downrigger 105 down in 150 fow that got wrapped up in our 300 copper and both our divers. Here's what took the hits: 2 - pole dancer meat rig behind a green demon magnum paddle 1 - green and blue meat rig behind a green and blue big weenie flasher 1 - spongebob meat rig behind a mixed veggies spin doctor 1 - moonshine flounder pounder Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. Trolled from about 5:30 to 8:30 and ended up 3 for 4, all medium kings. We started at 140 fow straight out of port and trolled NW to 180 with not so much as a mark. We then trolled NE to 160 and the fun began. We marked a couple then suddenly a downrigger 85 down took a king, and about as soon as we boated him the other downrigger 95 down took a king that wrapped up in two of our long lines. After about the 20 minute ordeal of untangling everything we had to take some time to refind the spot but we eventually found the same spot and on cue had a couple marks, got a king on a downrigger 85 down, and lost another one on a downrigger 85 down. Here's what took the hits: 2 - pole dancer meat rig behind a magnum green and white pro troll paddle 2 - spongebob meat rig behind a mixed veggies spin doctor 3 on a north troll, 1 on a northeast troll Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
