Port Austin 6-4-2010

Recommended Posts

Wasn't really fishing for walleye, but it was surely a welcomed change. My dad and I were casting for smallmouth in the harbor of Port Austin near the stone breakwall at dusk when this nice four pounder bit my jigging spoon. I thought it wasn't fighting like a bass and I thought I was going to do a backflip when I landed him. He's going to taste good for dinner tomorrow!

Nicely done. Some buddies fished out of PA over Memorial weekend and put the beatdown on the lakers. Also boated a few steel as well.

Nice job Peter. Did you catch any smallies?

We caught a few smallies. We caught about 15 near the breakwall before I hooked into this walleye. After the big rain on Memorial day, the lake muddied up and the smallmouth bite really turned off.

Nice Job! :thumb:

We did (2) 2-man limits trolling with harnesses off dowriggers 25'-30' down and in-line boards with 1.oz wgts back 80' Sat. and Sun. Chartruese or Orange blades seemed the best. 3-4lb. fish. Great eaters.

      Lines in the water from 8AM to 10:30.  Had 2 hits on a rigger 45 down with a RV green flounder Pounder.  Lost both.   Landed a 8lb steel head on a 300 copper. Was bringing it in the change lures and it hit when then board was 10 feet behind the boat.   Landed a 15lb king on a green Luhr Jensen meat rig on a braid dipsey on 2, 125 back.  This was an interesting fight.   He was not happy and got tangled in my 300 copper when he went on a run. He pulled the board under and the 30lb b
