PostSubject: Scattered fish in Saugatuck   Sun Jun 16, 2013 9:34 am

Fishing has been slow this last week with creel numbers of 2 to 5 fish.  The water has turned cold with 49 degree water on top and 40 degree water on the bottom in 100 foot.  We caught fish in 75 foot out to 200 foot, however there was no concentration and we caught fish on 100 copper to 160 foot down on the downrigger, so once again you had to fish whole water column.  You can catch lake trout by pounding bottom in 75 to 100 foot of water; however a lot of these were small fish under 22 in.  The salmon were caught from 100 to 200 foot of water and were found throughout the water column.
To point to one lure and one set up that worked consistently is hard to do, however the only combination that we pulled every day and produced everyday was the white/glow mountain dew Pro Troll with a Rapture mirage fly on the high wire diver at 200 foot.  Thursday we ran downriggers at 50 to 60 foot with free sliders (small green dolphin and blue dolphin) and they went multiple times, however on Friday they never produced a hit.  Friday we had hour best success with 200 and 300 copper and silver flashers and green flies but then on Saturday we only had one hit on a copper and that was on a 150 with a blue green dolphin stingray. 
Next week the report is south winds and warmer weather so possibly we may get some stratification of the lake temperature and as a result concentrate the fish and bait in a smaller water column.  For more information and or fishing charter reservations email me at captron@chartermichigan.com.
