Great weather and good fishing again today. We caught a nice mixed bag of mostly Kings, 1 Laker, and a few Coho & Steelhead. All our rigger bites were on spoons. We ran a couple of flashers, but for us they wanted spoons. A pair of regular size Dreamweaver Beefeaters on the chute rigger down 80ft. were very good and a pair of Yeck Lighting’s on an out down took several fish. Our hottest diver was a 10″ Mountain Dew Spin Doctor/Cold Steel Big Water Meat Rig out 180 on a low wire. A 10 color core with a Yellow Splatter Back Captains Choice Cut Plug went 5 times. Our biggest King came on a mag size Fuzzy Bear Modified Lemon Ice on a 350 copper.

Good fishing continues in Ludington. We had a few Coho & Steelhead mixed with our Kings today. That was probably due to us running all spoons on our riggers. The bite never slowed so we didn’t put our flashers & meat rigs on our riggers. We also had the speed bumped up, 3.3 to 3.6 at the ball on our Fish Hawk. The faster speed didn’t hurt our action on our divers. Our high wires were out 220 & 250 with a 10″ Show Time Spin Doctor/Blue Moo Big Water Meat Rig & a 10″ Dark Green Blade Blue Bubble Slick/Green Mile Big Water Rig. The lows were out 170 & 150 with a 10″ Dark Green White Crush Spin Doctor/Moo Moo Big Water Rig & a 10″ Mountain Dew Spin Doctor/Cold Steel Big Water Rig. We had a 250 & 300 copper on both sides with Captains Choice Cut Plugs – Natural Glow on the 250’s and Green Black Ladder Back & Yellow Splatter Back on the 300’s. They all took nice Kings. We are using Erie Dearie Preimum Strips on all our meat rigs.
