PostSubject: Lake Trout and silver fish in Saugatuck   Sun Jul 24, 2011 7:42 pm

If you like lake trout fishing, you would love the fishing this past week. 80 to 90 percent of the creel consisted of lake trout with the rest made up of chinook and steelhead. The best fishing continues to be in 70 to 100 foot of water, however there were some boats that fished all the way out to 300 foot of water for the silver fish.

We are fishing the downriggers on the bottom with Silver Horde Gold Star Flashers and green Rapture Flies (wild fern and green hypnotist) and yellow and green spin n glows. The dipsy divers were run at 180 foot on the high divers and 160 foot or more on the low divers with silver Pro Troll flashers (silver UV, Davey Jones and silver prism) and Rapture flies (no see um with yellow beads). The 150 foot and 200 foot copper produced some silver fish with stingray lures (NBK, carmel dolphin and blue veggie) while the 300 copper produced some chinook with silver and silver mountain dew flashers and no see um yellow beaded flies.

There was some good reports on the perch, however you may have to run to get there. The last part of the week produced some limit catches 9 miles south of the Saugatuck piers in 20 to 30 foot of water. Morning fishing is much more productive than mid day. Today the boat J Bird caught their limit of 70 fish that ranged from 8 to 14 in. I did talk to one boat that caught some perch north of the piers off the state park in 40 foot, but boats that fished there today did not fare well.
