Very tough day of fishing today. We started out on the Bank north of Ludington in 110 feet of water (fow). The water was warm but it was 49 degrees 95 feet down. We were there early and were hoping to get some King Salmon action. We marked some fish – not a lot but enough so that we were encouraged by what we saw. We trolled to the middle of the 04’s without a bite. I was in contact with three other charter boats fishing the same area and only one of them had a bite. We turned off the Bank and headed west on the same track we took yesterday. We missed a fish on a tin can dodger and a Dreamweaver Yellow Red Dot WhirlyGig down 205 feet in about 300 fow. We went out to 550 fow fishing 16 rods and didn’t have another bite until we turned back south. We finally got our first and only fish of the trip, the beautiful Steelhead pictured above left. It came on a 350 copper with a glow spoon. We had one other bite on a 225 copper and that was it. To say we were disappointed would be a understatement. We had a good crew and they took the lack of action well. They could see we were putting some effort into trying to make it happen. We marked fish most of the morning but they take what we offered today. We will be fishing again Saturday morning. We use Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
