Find the water temp between 44 and 48 degrees and go for it. Offshore winds cause cold water to come to the beach. Try starting in tight and look for the right water temp. 52 degrees is perfect for Steelhead and Browns, but Kings like colder water.

It finally happened, about 17 trips between my boat and Chris's and we got the first and last skunk of the year. Time to put em up and concentrate on deer hunting. Found a few fish in 225 fow and fish in tight in 20-30 fow. Went 0-1 in 25' on a long lined thin fin, saw him jump, (prob. steelhead). Surface temp was about 52 in close and slowly rised to 57 out at 225'. No significant breaks, no scum line and no seagulls.

We went 4 for 6 in Muskegon today kept 2 steelhead and a small king we found dead when pulling lines explains why the rod stopped firing LOL. Best water was 120 ft straight out. Beach combed for 3 hours to start the day zero fish. Headed west got a hit in 110 Steelhead lost at back of boat. Went west til we hit the nets then southwest to get around them to about 160 no takers and fish thinned out so turned around and trolled back in to call it a day changing baits found a shaker and released it no skunk LOL. 5 color with a black spoon fired in 125 netted a 4 lb Steelhead. 125 copper fired in 110 no idea it pulled like a truck then split. made a loop back thru and rigger 30 down fired with a glow tail netted a 6lb Steelhead agreed to make one more pass and gave up pulled lines to find a small dead king on the port rigger 3 in the box and headed home. Still better than working LOL.
