fish north of the mudline

Recommended Posts

Went out of sebewaing this morning at 9 and got back to shore at 530 this evening then headed to cheeseburger in caseville. Well the bay is extremly muddy to the south and as far north as 3 miles past buoys 1 and 2. We found clear water about 11 this morning about 3 to 4 miles north of buoys 1 and 2 in 28 to 32 fow. Once we started fishing the clearer water we started catching nice eyes, speed and colors were a must. We put 25 fish in the box but it was not that easy, ran 3 boards off both sides and 2 lines off each downrigger, plus 2 long lines, the fish wanted 1.1 to 1.5 dragging the bottom to 10 foot off the bottom. Good colors were blueberry muffin, pinks with white, siberian tiger, pink panties and firetiger, ran 1.5 oz bouncers 70 to 100 off the boards. Theres still alot of fish out there just gotta find em and stay out of the muddy water, the water temp was 69.

      Last 3 weeks oct 4, 11, and 18th. fished manistee river once and st joe twice.  Not much to get excited about. Hooked 2 Salmon on the manistee back at the beginning of the month, and lost both. Then completely skunked not even a bite on the joe oct 11.  Finally yesterday got one nice fresh hen steelhead on the joe. Probably a lot of others doing much better than me. But thats how it goes for me.

      Hi, everyone. I'm doing a media event at Burnham Harbor on 8/29 and need a live fish indigenous to Lake Michigan to display in a tank.  Any ideas? Do you need a permit for something like that? Please let me know as I'm open to all ideas. Thank you in advance!

    • Does your boat fish 'good' or 'bad'?

      Hi all. I own Lurecharge products where I create natural voltage on fishing lures. Throughout my learning curve I have discovered that some metals, depending on their makeup, will actually repel fish. My first clue was about 5 yrs ago when I sent some of my anodes to a friend in Ontario for ice fishing perch. Instead of attaching the anode to his lure metals and creating a galvanic cell, he attached the anode up the line 2 ft like a split shot weight (same size). There was a group if 6 in a circ
