  1. Maybe it's just me but it seems like the pier runs have really just fizzled out in recent years. When I was a kid in the 2000's every port it seemed would get a week or so window where they would hang out in front of the piers and in the channels but now even on good runs they seem to go from deep straight to the headwaters or rivers.

  2. We went out of Holland this morning and for the second straight trip got skunked. We saw some enticing marks in 125 ft right off the bat but no hits and when we turned back they were gone. The water was 44 degrees 60 ft down so I can't blame the water for being piss warm this time. The DNR planting data shows some got planted in both Holland and Saugatuck in 2018 so I keep expecting them to come back but it looks like they either vacated north or are doing a great job at avoiding us. With our dock coming out next weekend and my dad and I both getting busy after that this is probably the end of my trolling season, bummer it had to go out with a whimper but it also looks like just about everyone on the southern end of the lake is struggling.

  4. We trolled from 6 to 11:30 and ended up 2 for 4 with a 2# laker and a 4# coho. We had two hits in 115 fow and, one in 190 fow, and the laker was just dangling there when I reeled in a line to check it. Here's what took the hits 1 - spotted dick meat rig behind a mixed veggies spindoctor on 300 copper 1 - Michigan stinger uv naked Jordo on 150 copper 1- Ito green and black meat rig behind an Ito angry alewife paddle on a downrigger 90 ft down 1 - Ito green and black meat rig behind an Ito angry alewife paddle while reeling in (like right behind the boat) Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  5. We trolled from 6 to 11 am from 150 to 180 ft, ended up 1 for 2 with a 14# king, finally snapping my dad's godawful dry spell, both hits in 170 fow. Here's what took the hits: 1-1 moonshine magnum rv blue flounder on 350 copper 0-1 fake news meat rig behind chartreuse atommik magnum paddle on a downrigger 100 ft down Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  6. Based on the PS buoy it looks like we've got a little bit of one setting up around 65 ft Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  7. June and July are always by far my worst months, pretty soon the lakers should start stacking up in their usual 120 zone which can be a good hold over till the kings start staging Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  8. I've been out four times this season out of Holland and have marked zero bait fish. Meat rigs have accounted for every one of my kings which usually never happens to me in May
  9. We fished from 6 to 10:30 from 160 to 210 fow and ended up 2 for 3 with a 14# and almost 27# king, all right around 190. Sorry if you're the boat we got awkwardly close to, the second king crossed three other lines and was causing a rats nest tangle so we had to click it in neutral. Here's what took the hits: 2-2 chartreuse musslehead meat rig behind a chartreuse atommik magnum paddle on a downrigger 90 ft down 0-1 fake news meat rig behind a mixed veggies spindoctor on 300 copper Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  10. We fished from 6:30 to 10 am then the fog chased us off. Despite a break off and a downrigger going out if commission we ended up 2 for 3 with a 17# and 21# king, all three hits in 160 fow. Here's what took the hits: 1-2 mixed veggies spindoctor with a SpongeBob meat rig behind 300 copper 1-1 into mischief Oki paddle and meat rig on a downrigger 85 ft down Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  11. We trolled from 7:30 to 11:30 am, started in 210 fow and trolled out to 250 then back to 210. Ended up 2 for 3 with a 13 lb king and 2 lb coho. Every hit came in 240 ft. I've never seen an alewife so big in a small coho's belly. Here what took the hits: 1-2 mixed veggies spindoctor with a SpongeBob meat rig on 300 copper 1-1 orange and white pro king spoon Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  12. It's good to see there are still some browns in our area Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  13. I've noticed the last few years south of Ludington kings in numbers just aren't a guarantee anymore. The central/southern end of the lake has been pretty barren all season. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. We fished from 7 to about 11 from 100-150 and ended up 1 for 3 with an 11# king. All three hits came in 125 on a north troll. Here's what got hit: 1 warrior magnum neon perch spoon on 200 copper 1 mixed veggies spindoctor with a SpongeBob meat rig on 300 copper 1 ITO angry alewife flasher with a matching meat rig on a downrigger 75 ft down Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. We trolled from 6-10 am and went 1 for 5 with a 6# coho. The first four hits all came in a row in about 135 ft at first light then another one in 190 ft right before we left. Here's what took the hits: 2 - green fly behind a green hulk spindoctor on a downrigger 95 ft down 3 - chartreuse musslehead meat rig behind a chartreuse atommik 11 in paddle on a downrigger 110 down Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  16. I've only ever got them at night when they're in the harbors in September, I've tried a few night trolls in the summer and aside from a couple steelhead once I've never had any luck Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  17. We trolled from about about 160 to 190 fow from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. Marked absolutely nothing but went 1 for 1 with a 12 lbs king in 170 fow. He came on a SpongeBob meat rig behind a mixed veggies spindoctor on 300 copper. We were right around 2.4 mph the whole time. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  18. We trolled from 6 to 11 am in 130-150 fow and went 0-3. We marked a lot of bait but there didn't seem to be many fish around it. All three hits came on a live wire spindoctor with a green spin n glo 110 ft down on a downrigger. It was frustrating considering all the good reports we've seen but it was probably just too nice out to get into them (we get that a lot when it's calm). Also a heads up there's a big arse tree trunk floating around 60 fow just south of Holland, someone already flagged it, you don't see much of it but it's big.

  19. Haven't been out much with all this Covid-19 fallout keeping me at work but I finally got out Sunday morning. We trolled around from 7 to 11 am around 130 ft the whole time. We ended up 2 for 3 with two Lakers 1# and 4# and had probably a king break off. Saw some promising suspended marks but no takers mid column. After about 9 we slowed our troll from 2.4 to 1.7 mph and that's when we got all three hits. Can't wait for this midsummer funk to be done. Here's what took the hits: 2-2 live wire spindoctor with a green spin n glo 110 down on a downrigger 0-1 blue jeans paddle with a blue fly on 200 copper Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  20. I guess I meant to say boat launches, good to hear there's at least one open Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  21. How are the marinas there? I'm thinking about launching out of South Haven Sunday but I've heard there marinas are unusable with flooding Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  22. Trolled from about 6:30 to 9 right around 150 feet then got blown off the lake in my small 18 footer. I ended up 1 for 1 with a 22# king. Probably my most victorious 1 for considering I couldn't reach my desired depth with the waves and had my outing cut short. She hit a SpongeBob meat rig behind a mixed veggies spindoctor on 300 copper. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  23. Up until two years ago I remember the high water mark was 20 and we didn't hit it a lot of years Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  24. Brought my girlfriend out and trolled from 6 to 9 pm. We trolled 180 to 190 and ended up 3 for 5 with an 11# coho, 28# king and 6# steelhead. Here's what took the hits: 2-2 SpongeBob meat rig behind a mixed veggies spindoctor on 300 copper 0-1 lime green fly behind playin in playa big weenie flasher on 200 copper 1-2 green and white fly behind a green alewife spindoctor on a dipsy 150 back set on 2 Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  25. We tried literally the exact same range and only managed one laker and lost two likely kings, frustrating because we kept marking stuff Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
