Port Sheldon. 8/14 Evening


Recommended Posts

Motored up close to Grand Haven.  Started around 6 pm in 100 fow on a SSW troll.  Trolled out to 150.  Then trolled east back into 120 fow and trolled SSW into 140 fow.

Pulled lines at 9 pm.

Went 5/5 with 4 kings and 1 lake trout.  Only 1 king with good size.  The others were around 3-5 lbs.

Flea-4-all spoon on the 300 copper took thee fish.  Green flasher flies took the bigger kind and the lake trout.

A bit bumpy but overall a nice evening on the lake.

Will try to get out a few more evenings this week.  Some boats at the ramp had done pretty well in coho and steelhead in 200-300 fow.  Heard that 400 coppers we're working well out there.

Thanks for the report. Since the water changed I’ve heard it has been harder to find the fish. Glad you got one big fish. Was that king on a flasher or spin dr?

That may have been us at the ramp JDH. We were 13 for 18. Set up in 190 on a SW and seemed to get better as we went out. turned at 250 but the bite slowed as well. 400 copper went 6X's +. Rigger at 70 < 90 went 4-5X's and wire divers took a good beating as well. Lot of marks 70-100 down with that being the target zone. All flasher fly's, whites and greens. Mixed bag with one nice 4-year old coho a few Steel Head, 1 and 2 year old Kings, as well as 2 released Lakers.

Sounds like that was you.  Spoke to a three different groups that did well in deeper water.
