Cook and Port Sheldon Weather Buoys - Deployed for 2014!! The Cook and Port Sheldon buoys were deployed yesterday and today! It sure turned rough south of St. Joe yesterday, but we got it out today. Thanks to all of you that have emailed me that you use data from the buoy. PLEASE don't hesitate to email me at [email protected] with questions and comments. I only have one pair of eyes so please let me know if you see any issues with the buoy. Also email me any photos of the buoy if you happen to go by it! I don't get out on the water as much as I should. Please email me if you use data from the bouy. I forward those emails directly to the folks that pay the bills to keep the buoys deployed year after year. [email protected] Open House - Come out to an open house on Thursday, May 8 from 5-7 PM @ Pier 33. We'll have a buoy on display. Come and thank the Cook Plant personally for supporting the weather buoy deployed off of their plant. This is the only privately funded weather buoy on the Great Lakes and it wouldn't be here without their support. The Cook buoy is deployed 2.5 miles offshore of the Cook Nuclear Power Plant in 70ft of water. The Port Sheldon Buoy is sponsored by the Great Lakes Observing System in cooperation with the National Weather Service Office in Grand Rapids and is deployed about 3 miles straight out in 90ft of water. PLEASE stay 500+ft away from the buoy while trolling.

Blackhawk posted a topic in Michigan Waters Fishing Reports - Salmon and Troutfished from @ 3:00pm - 8:00pm ended up 5/9. Worked between 120' - 150' with the most productive water being 130'-135'. 1 real nice steely on a rigger and all the rest on long lines. We had 4 fish peel line out and come unhooked as we brought the board in. Highlight of the entire day came while pulling lines. I pulled all the dead rods first and was down to a 300 cu and a 200 cu. I got the board off of the 200 cu and was @ half way in naturally cranking it pretty fast and A fish hammers it. What a cool feeling. It peels all the copper back out and plenty of backing until I could get it turned. It was quite nice to fight this monster with only 1 board out behind the boat. After a good 20 min. battle we were successful at landing my Biggest King ever. 24# giant. These fish are amazing to see in person and pictures really don't do them justice. Truly an awesome day to be out on Lake Michigan. I will get some pics posted later today. What worked: 200 cu. w/ SS Blue Dolphin mag. spoon 2/3 (small laker and 24# king) 300 cu. w/ SS Green Dolphin Mag. spoon 1/4 (5# king ) 10 color w/ SS Blue Dolphin Regular spoon (4# steely) rigger w/ clear DW paddle/purplish tape and matching fly at 46' (8#steel)
