12 salmon in one hour in Saugatuck
<p>Spectacular fishing (12 in the first hour on Sunday). This past week we have been fishing in 65-115 FOW, 25-85 feet down depending on water temps. Early in the week, after the water cooled down, there was some very good fishing in front of the piers with chinook salmon, coho salmon, steelhead and lake trout being caught. After the water warmed the fishing continued out in the 65 to 115 foot depth.
Best lures continued to be stingrays on the 100, 150, 200 and 300 foot copper lines - mixed veggie, mixed veggie w/ glow back, tangerine, modified green dolphin, double orange crush, magic man. This past week we also saw our first bite on plugs with the green splatterback on 100 and 150 foot of copper. On the wire divers and downrigger we ran Pro Troll flashers and Rapture flies. Below are the combinations that we ran:
White double glow with hypnotist fly
Mixed Veggie with purple no see um
Super frog with yellow fern
Blue Wiggle with oceana
Chrome mountain dew with hit man no see um
White mountain dew with green no see um
Chartreuse double glow with hypnotist
11 in white glow with 1st wish (on the center downrigger every day all day)
Perch fishing has been very slow since the cold water moved in but at the lake continues to warm we should see this fishing pick up.
