Well, finally made it out again. We really didn't know where to start, so we decided to go west, straight out from the piers. We set lines at 140 fow. Nothing until we hit 189 fow, and got a 5 lb coho. That was on a downrigger, set at 50, with a hawg wild spoon. Then went out to 240 and stopped marking fish, so we turned back around. We had another hit ,but lost it on a dipsy, that was set at 150, with a pickled sunshine fly and mountain dew sd. About half hour later, we got another coho at 190 fow, with the same fly combo. We were about to pull lines when the pickled sunshine fly went again but lost it before we got it out of the rod holder. We kept our speed around 3.5-3.8 on the GPS. Ended the morning 2 for 4.

Is there a secret for getting steelhead this time of the year? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good job. I went out of Muskegon this morning too. Out to 165, marking lots of fish, finally took 1 small laker in 120 and returned it. You guys did better, but I was also suprised not to get any steelhead.
