Frequent 20+ pound salmon in Saugatuck

Recommended Posts

What a great week of fishing. Just about every day we would have at least one salmon that would push or exceed 20 pounds. Today we caught a 24.5 pound, a 23.5 pound, a 19 pound and a 17 pound salmon in the 10 fish creel. The fish are located from 100 foot of water out to 160 foot of water from the Holland piers to south of the Douglas point. Mixed in with the chinook salmon are some coho, steelhead and lake trout.

Downriggers at 70, 80, and 100 foot down are producing with flashers and flies. The best are the Echip (silver green, davie jones glow, glow frog and white and silver mountain dew) with Rapture wild fern, green hypnotist and green beaded no see um flies. We did take some salmon on the 11 in E chip but the best was the 8 in. Our best method continues to be the dipsy divers at 200 foot and 250 foot out with the same flashers and flies we used on the downriggers. 300 and 450 foot of copper lines did well also with flashers and flies on the 450's and Stingray lures (green dolphin, blue green dolphin and mixed veggie-all with glow backs) on the 300's.
