Lake Michigan Fishing Report 08.06.12

The fishing is still very good in the Ludington area, and for that matter from Pentwater to north of the point. For me its still meat on the High and Low divers. Black with Moo Moo, Mountain Dew with Cold Steel, Green/Blue Bubble with Froggy, Showtime with Blue UV on Ice. They are all working.  About any combination of spinny-Paddle- meat is working.  Ace high and Dreamweaver plugs are taking off as well.  The splatterbacks and the double gloes.  Bluejeans, Oscars, Happy...

From Little Point to Big Point and all points in between the fishing is fantastic. I dont know where all of the salmon are coming from but Im glad there here. The tournament saw more limit catches than any other tournament in history.  Lots of kings and a 24.5 lb brown for biggest fish-WOW. For me its still meat on the divers, Moonshine on the riggers and Yecks and Dreamweaver spoons on the cores and coppers.I have been running the same basic program for the past 6 week...

The fishing has slowed down because of all the North winds of the past week.  Also, I drew the first season and was turkey hunting for the first three days.  Called in a beautiful gobbler, 24 lbs, 10" beard and 1" spurs. It has been hard to get out and the water temp has fallen with the north winds.  The lake has gone from 50 degrees to the low 40s.  We went out Thurs AM until the wind forced us off.  We took a Brown in front of the Lincoln on a...

The boat is back in the water and ready for the season, and just in time.  We are having a very good year for Brown Trout in Ludington so far.  I have taken 63 so far and I think we still have 2 to 3 weeks of good fishing left for the Brownies.  Also there are good numbers of Chinook on the point right now.  The fish are deep, in excellent shape, fiesty and most important very hungry.    Best baits for the browns are stick baits and smaller spo...
