PostSubject: Warming water slows fishing in front the piers in Saugatuck   Mon Sep 09, 2013 7:31 am

Cool water brought some very good fishing in front the piers with creel numbers up to 20 fish. This fishing was very good Monday through Wednesday and then as the water started to warm, the creel limits dropped to 6 to 10 fish per trip. Today, after seeing the water temperature was in the upper 60 we ran off shore and fished in 90 to 110 foot of water and caught 16 fish two of which were undersize lake trout and had to be returned. The catch today consisted of salmon from 4 to 17 pounds and lake trout up to 14 pounds.

In front the piers we pulled Ace Hi plugs on 2 and 3 color lead core, 30 foot copper and the downriggers run at 5 and 7 foot down. Any glow Ace Hi plug worked early in the morning and as the morning progressed we switched over to Ace Hi plugs that were more silver or combination of silver green or red plugs. Divers were run with white/mountain dew and glow frog Pro Troll flashers and Rapture green hypnotist flies.
Once we returned to the deeper water today we fished with the same combinations I listed in last weeks report.
