We fished north of Ludington today. We figured the Lakers would be gone from our hot spot due to the warm water the southwest wind blew in. We took it down the Bank and didn’t have a bite until we got to the Point. We had an out down set with a trout rig on it that took a small throw back Laker. We took a small king on a 7.5 color core. We hit our first big fish on a high wire diver out 180 with a 10″ White Crush Spin Doctor/Pickled Sunshine Dreamweaver Meat Rig. It ripped out some wire and was gone. We hit another big King on the same rig and boated that one. It weighed right at 14 lbs.When we went to change some of our cores and coppers we found small Kings on several of them. We took a medium size King on a low wire diver out 150 with a 10″ Kevin’s Girlfriend Spin Doctor/Green Mile Big Water Meat Rig. We didn’t take another big fish until we were pulling lines and hit the 14.5 lb. King pictured left on the same low wire with the Kevin’s Girlfriend/Green Mile rig. We took our fish between 130 & 150 feet of water north of the Point. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs.

Fishing south of Ludington was tougher today due to warming and rough water, but our crew still managed to boat a nice catch. We didn’t mark the number of fish we had been seeing our last few trips down there. The rough water made it hard to keep our baits where they needed to be and it was difficult to maintain a good trolling speed. Our best rods were our wire divers fished on or near bottom. We caught most of our fish on dodgers and Spin-N-Glos.
The Lake Trout are still cooperating. We fished south of Ludington today. All our fish came on 8″ Chrome Spin Doctors or Dodgers with various Spin-N-Glos. Our wire divers fished near or on bottom were are best rods. We only took 1 fish off a rigger. We took another on a copper with a dodger and Spin-N-Glo.
We fished south of Ludington again today. The sun was shining, the Lake calm, and the fish were biting. What more could a person want? We covered quite a bit of water fishing between 45 and 70 feet of water . All of our fish came near the bottom except the Brown Trout pictured below. It took a Lemon Ice Dreamweaver Super Slim on a 3 color core. Most of our catch came on dodgers and Spin-N-Glos. We did take a few on 8″ Chrome Spin Doctors and Spin-N-Glos. Our wire divers were our best rods.
Outstanding fishing today! Our crew had a fun time fighting and landing these fish. We fished south of Ludington today between 40 and 75 feet of water. Our best rods were our wire divers. We had four of them out and they all took fish. We were using dodgers and Spin-N-Glos on one side of the boat and 8″ Spin Doctors & Spin-N-Glos on the other side. It was pretty much a tie. Both sides did equally well. We have several dates open this month and in June. Give us a call if you would like to experience our spring fishing in Ludington.
It felt good to be back fishing in our home port of Ludington. We had fished the last two weeks out of St. Joe with the Blue Fairways crew. Today we fished south of Ludington and caught our 6 person limit of Lake Trout. We had a great time catching these fish. We fished between 50 and 70 feet of water and caught most of them right off bottom. We had 4 divers out and 3 riggers down with dodgers and Spin-N-Glos. One of our divers had a 8″ Chrome Spin Doctor and a Chrome Spin-N-Glo and that took one big trout. We have lots of open dates. If you would like to try this May fishing give us a call. It is fun!
