Well, we went out and gave it hell!

Got the boat  in the water about 6:30 and set up in 70 FOW, trolled out to 160 FOW and barely marked a fish. Trolled back in south of the harbor and marked a ton of fish between 120-140FOW. A lot bait balls and a ton of fish. We marked fish at times from 80 down to the bottom. After changing lures 5 times and fishing everywhere from 40 foot down to the bottom we figured we should try something new. Trolled out to 170FOW and completely stopped marking everything. Then 124 down picked up an 18# Laker on a white flasher/white fly. Trolled around there for a few passes and called it a day. 
 

thanks to tkat1000 and jdh for the responses back to my original post. I’ll be back for sure next year!!911A6C60-3387-4BEA-A013-35C222963644.thumb.jpeg.6507783982d2c765d041bd5e49d71bc4.jpegA5D56682-A9F8-4F00-A8E7-4F97868DB23B.thumb.jpeg.5d05c9c6c0806504d0da03d257644ea4.jpeg

I also gave it a go out of Holland yesterday from noon to 4:30pm.  Covered from 110 to 230 FOW.  Not a bump.  Marked next to nothing beyond 140'.  48 degree water was down about 100'.  What little warm water there is, is piled up on the Michigan shore.

Where we fished we found 44 degrees of water 80 down in 120 FOW, the surface temp was 56 and it was 52 degrees down to that break.  We would troll in and out of the thermal break all day.  We actually caught our fish when the water was 52 degrees and we were running 2.0 at the ball.  We tried just about everything but J-Plugs and my son was trying to talk me into it for for the heck of it.

Nice laker!  I didn't end up making it out this weekend, but hopefully I'll try tomorrow night.  Has to be one hungry fish out there!

Thanks for the post, keeps us all informed.....Holland has been tough last couple of weeks, fished Friday evening June 5 and wasn't marking much and didn't even get a bump.  Hopefully water sets up and fish move back in.
