Fishing this past week has been improving each day. The water is still cold and has very little thermal stratifacation and the the fish are found from the upper areas all the way to the bottom. This weekend the best fishing was from 120 to 200 foot of water but the best area was 175 to 200 foot of water. The creel consisted of steelhead in the upper 40 foot and coho and chinook salmon from 60 to 120 foot down. Lake trout and chinook salmon where also caught as far down as 250 foot. Saturday produced catches of 10 to 20 fish per boat.

The steelhead came on half core, 100 foot of copper, 300 foot of copper and dipsy divers that were 100 to 200 foot out. The best lures here were spoons--Stinger fruit cocktail and orange crush, Stingray and Magnum Stinger blue dolphin and green dolphins. The downriggers were run from 40 to 260 foot down and produced the lake trout and most of the salmon. The best combination on the downriggers were Green Glow and White Glow Hot Chip and Pro Chip flashers with Rapture Green Hypnotist and Last Supper flies. Rule for the day was spoons up high and flashers and flies deep.

Reports are that fishing has been hot in the southern ports and the fish are beginning to move north so we should be next. This is a little latter than past years, however the weather has been colder and this may have delayed the movement. We should see an increase in the fishing action as the water warms and the fish begin to move in and feed. For information and/or fishing reservation email me at captron@chartermichigan.com or call me toll free at 888-253-8372.
