Fished solo from 7 to 9:30 and went 4 for 8 - all kings 21, 16, 9 and 8 pounds. Everything on downriggers at 60ft in 120 to 140 FOW south of the pier. The hot spoon is below! It was a great morning!IMG_3622.JPGIMG_3619.JPG

That is a great catch for 2 1/2 hours and only 3 lines in the water.  Well, you probably only had 2 lines in the water most of the time.

Man, it seems like the rigger bite has been going crazy lately.  That is great.

Keep sending those fish North.  I'm going out of Pentwater on Wednesday.

Great to see your catch--they are fat like the old days. Did you see what they were eating?  Good luck

My crew wants to fish Grand Haven tomorrow instead of Pentwater.  I've never launched from there before.  Is the Grand Haven Municipal launch the best site to launch from?  (On another map I see the same location being called Harbor Island Boat Launch.)

Pretty much your only option.  Head straight out until you hit the river channel.  The launch itself can be a bit of a trick to get to.  $10 I believe.

I usually launch out of muskegon if i want to fish gh. Muskegon launch is nicer and easier than gh plus only like a 15-20 min boat ride south almost faster by boat than by vehicle

Which launch do you use in Muskegon?  (That's another port I haven't used yet.)

You want to go out of the Harbor Island boat launch.  That is the main launch for Grand Haven and will easily handle a 27 foot boat.  As FBD said  you want to go directly out to the main channel from the docks as it can get shallow up or down stream from the launch.  You could certainly launch out of Snug in Muskegon which has a small fish cleaning station.  But I would argue it is any easier to get to than Harbor Island.  Also I've hit a couple underwater stumps heading out of Snug before I learned how to leave and come into that launch.  Higher water levels may have made that a moot point though.

If your looking for a Good Launch out of Muskegon try Grand Trunk in the Lakeside area. It's at the end of McCracken St. The Lake Express Ferry comes in and out of there, so it's nice and deep. Lots of parking
