Well, if you want Lakers they are everywhere.  We fished from 30 FOW to 200 FOW and never found a king, coho, steelhead or brown.  Nothing but lakers, Chartreuse and Orange were the colors they hit on.  They hit from 25 - 70 foot down.  Spoons and flies both worked.  The only place we didn't fish but should have is off the northeast corner or Mackinac Island on he hump.  There is a marker for a fishing net there so we avoided it.  However; we drove over it and went from 90 FOW to 14 FOW really quick.  All the way up and down that up was stacked full of fish, don't know what they are and didn't attempt to fish them but it was full of fish.  

The charter guys we talked to said the Salmon were hot and heavy for about two weeks then totally disappeared.  Can't find them from Hessel to Detour to Roger City.

Thanks for keeping us posted on the fishing in your area.   There are too many lakers throughout the great lakes eating precious forage that could be utilized for kings and other silver fish.   I hate fishing for them, like pulling in a snagged garbage bag.     Hope some kings show up soon for you, the MDNR plants more kings in northern lake Huron than they do in all of Lk Michigan.  The stocking sites definitely need to be reviewed.  Might be better to spread them out along the south coast of the UP and in other places to get a better fishery return for anglers.
