We had a fun time on our first 2017 charter. The water on the beach didn’t look good for Browns (too dirty) so we headed out to deeper water and fished for Lake Trout. We set up in 70 feet of water south of Ludington. It took a while to find the fish but when we did the action was very good. We ran 4 wire divers, 3 riggers, 4 coppers & 4 lead cores. We had dodgers trailed by Dreamweaver Whirly Gigs and Spin-N-Glos on our riggers. All 4 wire divers had 8″ Chrome Spin Doctors. Two them had Whirly Gigs on them and the other 2 Spin-N-Glos. We ran spoons on our coppers & cores. We took 1 fish on a 5 color core with a Yeck Fireball, 4 fish on our riggers, and 11 on our divers. We threw the last Trout back because we already had our 5 person Laker limit. Our riggers and divers were all fished on or near the bottom. We fished between 50 & 70 feet of water. Our big fish of the day was a 19 lb. 8 oz. Trout caught on the 8″ Chrome Spin Doctor/DW Whirly Gig pictured left. That set up was real good on a low wire diver.
