Fished this morning from 0500 till 1200. Worked 110-190 but nothing happening. Marked a good number from 120-145.

 

Fished tonight from 600-1000. Worked 120-150. Nothing doing 0/0 a few marks but not like this am.

 

Talking with guys at the launch this am and pm it was slow for everyone. I was definitely not the only 0/0....

I feel your pain. My last two trips out of Holland were skunks too. Seeing that a new state record was caught in Ludington will keep me fishing, but the skunks are discouraging.
Thanks for the report.

The water is way to warm. I had 61 deg 100 get down. Hard to catch fish in that kind of temp.

I haven't caught a king yet this year, in five trips.  Appreciate the honest reports.

I've done well out of Holland a few times this year but unless we get some weather changes I'm headed to play bumper boats up north. I enjoy fishing not washing lures.

 

I'm not old enough to have been around during the"glory" years. In my lifetime my home port of Holland has never been great fishing.

Saugatuck and Holland haven’t had a “run” in several years. Guys will catch a couple fish around the piers in the fall but nothing like years past. There just aren’t enough fish planted to return in any numbers.

Totally the truth the plants are not here to support a run. It's a transition fishery when they're here you better get out as they don't stick around.

The good old days in the piers at Holland were not so long ago.  Labor Day after noon 2013.  We were calling people we knew had licenses and coolers to come meet us at the dock, grab their limit and go home.  27 kings, 3 coho, 10.4# walleye on a rigger and a #4 silver bullet J plug...

7-28-12 B4K.  1 hour 40 minutes from the pier heads to the pier heads in 2-4' chop.  We had to quit with 15 fish or who knows what we could have done that day...
