Fishing off of Saugatuck was good throughout the week. The week started with large catches, but small fish (salmon and lake trout) in 160-200 FOW. The week ended with large catches of large lake trout and an occasional king in 85-100 FOW.

The fish in the deeper water were biting orange Cory’s bait, mixed veggies and lemon ice sting ray spoons on the 200’ and 300’ of copper. On the down riggers the 8†green/glow Hotchip with a wild fern, 8†white dew wiggle Prochip with a hypnotist LG and the 8†white fishscale with a green no-see-um fly.

The lake trout in 85-100 FOW were biting metal dodgers with spin-n-glows and Goldstar squids. The best combinations were the tin can w/ a glow and pink dot, green, or chartreuse spin-n-glows. A chartreuse dodger with a green splatter back glow squid was also very productive. The dodger were bounced on bottom to produce action.

The water started to cool down on Sunday and some kings were found in 50 FOW right on the bottom. With some northerly winds forecasted for the week the salmon might start staging in the 45-50 FOW area. The cooler water will also spark a better perch bite for the perch anglers.

What size spin-n-glows do you generally fish? I have fished all sizes and caught fish on all of them behind tin cans primarily, but am curious if you find one size better than another.

Tight Lines and Thanks for your reports.
