We fished southwest of Ludington today setting up in 180 feet of water (fow) and putting it on a 240 troll. The temp was 44 degrees down 50 feet and warmed slowly to 49 degrees at 50 feet in the 39’s west. Our first fish was our biggest, a nice King, on a regular size Fuzzy Bear Yellow Tail spoon down 40 feet on an out down. Most of our bites were on 3 color cores. We had an Super Slim Super Bread on one and a Super Slim Steelie Dan on the other. We had 2 bites on a 10 color core with a DW Green Skinny Jeans. Our 11″ White Crush Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly set at 60 feet took a Lake Trout and had another hit, but we missed that one. Our early action was good, but when the wind picked up the action slowed.

We have fished the Ludington pier heads for the last five days and I think the well is running dry. Just like yesterday all our fish but one came on plugs. The 8″ Blue Bubble Spin Doctor/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly out 60 on a Slide Diver took one King. We had a rigger set at 17 feet take one and the other 4 came on 3 color cores. There are large schools of bait north of the pier heads and we hit our fish on the south end of the bait. I think we are going to try a different spot tomorrow.
