Holland 5-21 AM

Lines down at 730 and up at 1130.  9 for 18 mostly smaller fish with 1 9lb king.  Worked 130-150 SW out of port.  Nothing exciting or new to report.  Rigger down 80 and 60.  Free slider on the 60 down.  Mostly bright spoons however the green dolphin std went 4 times on a slide diver out 160.  250 and 150 copper.  Saw some incredible boxes of kings at the cleaning station.  Highlight of the day was landing my first ever Atlantic.

I saw the picture before reading your post and said - "Is that an atlantic?".  Awesome.

Yup I would have had a hard time believing it if I hadn't landed it myself.

That's gonna be awesome if Atlantic's start populating Lake Michigan again. Get some natural reproduction in the Boyne or a few other nearby streams.

Great day and a great post. Keep up the good work. When I visited the Platte River hatchery last August 2016 the staff there told me that they have a lot of Atlantics in the hatchery that will be released into the lake. We'll see how they "take".

Tight lines and safe returns to port...

They've been stocking Huron since 2011 and seeing some good returns, finally. Likely this one was from over there. If you send them the heads of the state plants, they can tell which port it was planted in. Last year I've seen claims of 7 + pounders. Lots of 2 pounders so far this year being reported, hopefully will be seeing some in the double digits this year.  Boyne use to have a wild population until the lakes dropped.

Fantastic data. Never get tired of the fine points regarding these great fish. If people only knew how lucky we all are to have such a great fishery out here in the Midwest.  Meanwhile, our counterparts on the west coast are hurting big time for even a season to catch the same fish that we take for granted.  Man do we got it good......hugh?
