No. We set lines around 7:30 or so in about 90’.  There were two boats out there but we just kept trolling out because at buoy there was no thermo and we had no marks. Tuesday morning we had heard a lot of bait n fish were in 80-100’. .

When we were out in 140 talked to a guy on the radio who said they had done well in 120-130 earlier and there were 3 or 4 boats circling  that area, we we didn’t see any nets gets wet.By then he had said it slowed down.

For SoHa had quite a few marks in 133-155 area. Were very consistent around 75’ down and 110’ down. And, we had a lot of lookers at the meat, aka the graph mark heading up as screen moves.

In 120’ it was 68 in top and 58 at 90! down, still not much of a thermo.

Is the smaller one a coho?  Tail doesn't look to be spotted up like the others...

 

Then, what would I know, haven't handed either in a long time.

You now that you mentioned it I looked  at my photos again to see whiter top n bottom gums. Si I agree a Ho. They are sooo close. Remember a few years ago when guy had  a state record record size Coho and it took MDNR like a mobth with scale samples, etc to finally determine it was a Ho.

Same here, so what do I know  FBD.

Next trip scheduled for next Wednesday; If  fish are still here will be SoHa, otherwise Holland.

There were so many issues with telling kings from coho back in the 3/5 limit era, especially when there were a lot of three pound versions of each swimming around in May, that the South Haven tournament finally went from catch a three man limit weigh 12 to catch a three man limit weigh nine salmon and three trout.  That way even if you didn't know what you caught, what you weighed in was legal and not up for argument.

We were lucky and after we got our ninth salmon with a mix of coho and kings and went in to 60-70 to drill for lakers, we popped a big king on a spinny bouncing bottom.  So we had room for it within our limit and didn't have to toss a 14# upgrade over the stern to stay legal.
