PostSubject: Salmon on the bottom in Saugatuck   Tue Aug 28, 2012 7:16 pm

The water is warm all the way to the bottom and most of the salmon are being caught in the bottom 15 to 20 foot of water from 80 to 130 foot of water. As the water warmed, the fishing slowed and we went from taking 12 to 20 fish per trip to 6 to 12 fish per trip. The last couple of days we caught some nice salmon in 80 to 95 foot of water 70 foot to the bottom and today we found that the water had cooled a little with the temperature change at 60 foot instead of 75 foot.

Dipsy divers at 300 and 200 foot with Pro Troll and Stinger flashers (white fishscale, super frog, white mountain dew and silver fishscale) with Rapture trolling flies ( green no see um, hypnotist, green glow no see um and second wish) was the most consistent producer. We also ran the 11 in white glow Pro Troll with the hypnotist fly every day on the middle downrigger near the bottom. 300 copper and 400 copper in the shallower water (100-80 foot) and 400 and 450 foot of copper in the deeper water with a variety of flasher and fly combinations. Yesterday and today we did have some action on 300 and 200 copper with green glow and green splatter back Ace Hi plugs.
