St. Joe 4-16 & S. Haven 4-17

Recommended Posts

Thank you Joe & Kelly for fishing with me in the Brown Blast Tournament on Saturday.

We started on a north troll fishing around 7:30 am about 5 miles north of the St. Joe pierheads and tried for brown's in 5-20 fow a few hours with nothing.  We then slid out into 20-40 fow and went  4-5 on coho over about 2 hours.  We then turned around and slid out to 50-70 fow and went 5-8 with another coho & 4 lake trout.  We pulled lines around 2:30 so we took the DQ and did not weigh anything in the tournament. 

On Sunday, Kelly and I fished south haven and worked 50-70 fow in many directions north & south of the pierheads.  We ended up 6-6 on Lake Trout and had a huge rip on a 3 color that sank the board but never hooked up.  I was hoping to limit out quickly and head out deep, but it took us until the end of our fishing time when we picked up our last laker.

What worked Saturday:

3-3 coho on floating Rogue's in silver/blue/orange 80 feet back behind the boards on mono lines.

2-3 coho on firefrog ministreak with a white back on a 3 color lead core

3-5 lakers on silver streak mag blue dolphin & BLL blue  kato on riggers down about 45 feet & 20-30 ft leads

1-2 laker on silver streak mag blue dolphin on 200 copper

What worked Sunday:

3-3 Silver streak mags blue dolphin, greasy chicken wing, monkey puke -riggers down 45-60 ft

2-2 Trash can dodged & green/chrome spin n glo ticking bottom on a mag dipsy

1-1 spin doctor Kevorkian with a poofster fly on a dipsy out 90 ft.

Good luck everyone.
