PostSubject: Lots of Lake Trout with few Salmon in Saugatuck   Sun May 08, 2011 10:39 pm

This past week produced some good catches of lake trout with a few salmon thrown in. The good news is that the chinook salmon are running a good size (mid teens) and appear to be in very good shape. To catch the lake trout, bounce the bottom with metal dodgers with spin n glows and rapture green hypnotist flies.. The best area was 50 to 70 foot of water south of the Douglas Point which produced 8 to 15 lake trout per trip that weighed up to 18 pounds. Saturday we tried to concentrate on the salmon and caught some in 45 to 40 foot of water in the mixed water off of the Saugatuck piers. 3 color and 5 color lead core with orange crush and fruit cocktail stingers and dipsy divers at 70 and 90 foot out with regular size Craigs X mas, Blueberry Muffin and Orange Dolphin stingers. No fish on the downriggers and none on flat lines. The day produced some small salmon in the 5 to 8 pound range, one chinook that weighed 12 pounds and a lake trout. Not real productive, however it might be worth trying if you do not want the lake trout.
