Fished south of Ludington again today setting up in 70 feet of water south of the project and putting it on a SE troll. We had 4 divers and the chute rigger set for Lakers and our lead cores set for Kings. We trolled between 50 & 75 feet of water. We didn’t mark many fish but we had decent action all morning. Our first 3 fish were Lake Trout and the 4th a nice King. The King hit an 8″ Blue Bubble Spin Doctor/Glow Blue Bubble Action Fly on a 10 color core. We took our other King on the same rig later in the morning. We lost a good size Steelhead on a 3 color core with a Gold Super Slim Starburst and boated a Laker and lost another Laker on a 7.5 color core with a UV Two Face Super Slim. We took 2 Trout on our chute rigger and the rest came on our wire divers fished on or near the bottom with 8″ Chrome Spin Doctors and Whirly Gigs. Our best 2 Whirly Gigs were the Lime Chartreuse and the Chrome Mountain Dew with Yellow Dots.

We fished south today setting up by the project in 70 to 75 feet of water (fow). There have been a few Kings caught lately in those waters so we only had 2 rods with Lake Trout rigs and the rest were set to target Kings. We hit our first King on a low wire diver, regular diver & ring, out 120 with an 8″ Blue Bubble Spin Doctor/Blue Bubble Action Fly. We hit 3 fish on that rig, a Trout that we landed and another King that got away. We weren’t marking many fish on our graph so we headed in a little shallower. We ended up working between 50 & 70 fow. We took 2 Kings on a 10 color core with an 8″ White Blade Slick UV Tape Blue Dot Spin Doctor/Blue Fairways Strong Fly, pictured below. A little later in the morning we put out a few more trout rigs and had good success with them. Our best Trout rig was an 8″ Chrome Spin Doctor/Chrome Mountain Dew Yellow Dot Whirly Gig on our low divers fished on or near the bottom. A regular size Yeck Copperhead on a 5 color core took 2 Kings. Our other 5 color took 3 bites with a Super Slim DW Two Face spoon. A SS Green Skinny Jeans went twice on a 7.5 color core and we took one of our biggest Kings on the other 7.5 color core with a regular size Fuzzy Bear Modified Green Dolphin. Near the end of our trip we put 10″ White Spin Doctor Dark Green Prism/Pickled Sunshine Meat Rig on a high wire diver out 120. We hit a nice King on it but lost him at the back of the boat.
