PostSubject: Fishing worth the long run   Sun Jun 01, 2008 11:19 pm

During this week we have been running out to 170 foot of water and trolling out to 230 foot and then back. Most of the fish were caught in 180 to 195 foot of water and the catch consisted of mainly chinook salmon with a few coho (in the 2 to 12 pound range) and a few steelhead mixed in. Most boats have been catching 12 to 20 fish per trip. For example today we caught 18 fish with 2 of them coho and the rest chinook salmon.

The best method all week has been 100 foot, 200 foot and 300 foot copper with Natural Born Killer and Green Dolphin Stingray lures. One NBK Stingray caught 8 of the 18 fish today. We also caught a few steelhead on 5 color lead core with orange/green and orange/silver Stinger lures. Dipsy divers were not very consistent but were run from 140 foot to 240 foot of line out with Green/glow Pro Chip flasher and Rapture Last Supper Flies. Downriggers were run form 40 to 120 foot down and the best combination was a tin can flasher and Rapture Las Supper Fly.

Today I talked to a couple of boats in South Haven and found out that they caught some very large chinook salmon in 100 foot of water. Tomorrow I will check this area out and see if these salmon may have migrated as far north as Saugatuck. Check back next week and see what we have find or contact me any time for information or to make charter reservations at captron@chartermichigan.com.
