We had a short four hour mid morning charter today. Our crew didn’t care for our usual starting time and opted to leave the dock at 8:15 a.m. We headed southwest out of Ludington setting up in 70 feet of water (fow) in the 53’s. Our first rod out, a 3 color core with a Super Slim Starburst spoon, hit a fish and it was game on. It was a Steelhead that got off near the back of the boat after a long fight. We trolled pretty much straight south down into the 51’s. We had decent action hitting fish on a 7 color core with a Super Slim Wreaking Ball, our other 3 color core with a Goldie Locks Super Slim, our out down at 40 feet and our chute rigger set at 56 ft. The further south we trolled the warmer the surface temp eventually hitting 58 degrees. We swung out on our north troll. We hit several fish between 80 & 90 fow. Our out down at 40 ft. with a pair of Yeck Wart Frogs took 2 Kings and the chute rigger with a 8″ White Crush Spin Doctor/ Pickled Sunshine Action Fly took a nice King. Our 2 color core with a Yeck Fire Ball also took a big King. We only took 1 fish on meat, a good size King on a 10″ Yellow Sparkle Spin Doctor/UV On Ice Big Water Meat Rig, on a 200 copper. Our cores weren’t hitting many fish towards the middle of the trip, but we were having enough action on our other rods that we didn’t check them for pups. When we were pulling lines we had 5 small fish between 8 & 12 ” on our cores. Our boards were tracking good so we didn’t suspect the draggers. We pulled lines at 11:15 heading back to the dock with some nice fish and a happy crew.
