Fished out of St. Joseph Friday 6-15-18.  Went deep to 200 FOW (12 miles out).  Waves were 2 Ft or less, so the run was easy.  Started with a mixed bag line set.  Noticed a bit of a scum line in the area.  Caught a chunky Coho on a medium Mixed Veggie spoon about 30 Ft down.  Then another hit on a Brad's bait with canned Tuna in oil out on a planer board using 50 YD. copper.  It was also a Coho.  So we had a trend going.  Changed all lines to Coho and Steelhead spoons and (3) copper lines with Brad's bait.  The fish of the day picture is attached.  A nice Steelhead hit a spoon on a Down Rigger.  Knew it was no little Coho right away.  Saw the usual tail dance and managed to get the fish to the boat.  Ended up with 11 Coho and 1 steelhead for the day.  A good time was had by all.

Way to capitalize on the filet mignon of the lake.

Dan,

We have caught Coho and Steelhead on the Michigan Stinger, (Stingray ) Mixed Veggie spoon shown.  They make it in regular and UV versions.  Both seem to work.

Regards,

Steve
