Manistee Sea Monsters


Recommended Posts

Fished Friday 8-14  AM & PM:  Most boats hanging between 120 to 215 FOW and we did the same.  Went 0 for 2 on the AM Trip and did not see or hear of a lot of fish being landed.  

Friday PM was a different story as we joined the fleet in these same waters doing a north to south or south to north troll.  Had a rigger go off about 45 mins before Sunset about 75 down

After about a 30 sec fight it somehow broke off the 30lb test between the SD and fly.  Rigger went off again about 15 mins later with better results.  Same rig SD & Fly, which seemed to be the 

most popular setup being used by the fleet as well.  My son landed this 27.5 King just after sunset, crew and captain were quite happy to have her on board.  Fish cleaning station at the Launch 

had a ton of guys with fish around this size (Less then a 20 lbr was considered perch fishing)    Went out Sat AM but got blown off as 1 to 2's turned to 2 to 4's and building in a blink.  

Awesome trip!
