  2. Ended being a short trip this morning. Rolled the dice and ran offshore. Started in 235, and trolled to 255. By that time my wife was turning green and we headed to the dock. Caught a 8# SH in 245 down 90 on a white dew Protroll w a hypnotist fly. Marked fish consistently from 75-110 down. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  3. Saugatuck and Holland haven’t had a “run” in several years. Guys will catch a couple fish around the piers in the fall but nothing like years past. There just aren’t enough fish planted to return in any numbers. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  4. Slow morning, started in 125 FOW and trolled west to 195; no bites. On the in trolled we caught a 5#LT on a dragon slayer SD and missed a bite on a white slick SD on a diver out 375. Trolled back to 180. On the second in trolled we lost a big king on a white blue bubble SD out 250 on a diver. Trolled into 120-105 where other boats were fishing. Never marked a fish inside 140FOW; 150-170 looked the best. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  5. Good fishing off of Port Sheldon this morning. Fished 6:00-11:00 a little north of the stacks in 130-200 FOW. Finished 8/12 with 3 adult kings, 2 smaller kings, 2 coho and 1 LT. All but 1 fish came behind a white flasher. Most bites were on Oceana or No-See-Um flies. Two fish came on meat rigs behind a white crush 10” SD. Riggers at 85 and 110, and divers at 350 and 250 were good. Very few biting flies- so nice. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman

Chrome flashers with green flies and white flashers with blue flies were the best. This morning’s sunrise was spectacular! Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman

  21. Looking for recommendations for a taxidermist who does great work on trout. My son caught a 28” rainbow on the Betsie that we want to put on a wall. Any leads are appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  22. Made the run up GH hoping to find some salmon at the pier heads. Fished 7:30-9:30, no bites and saw no fish being fought on other boats. Water was cold enough, and we marked fish. Disappointing, I thought this might be the 1 weekend for a push of fish. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
