When we arrived at the boat this morning the wave height reported at the buoy in front of Ludington was 4.5 feet. We postponed our trip to see if the waves would lay down later in the morning. They dropped to about 3 feet and we heard reports of some fish being caught in front of the harbor in 50 to 60 feet of water (fow). We left the dock at 1:00 p.m. to give it a try. We set up in 60 fow straight out from the pier heads and trolled south. We started out with 3, 5, 7.5, & 10 color cores, 3 riggers and 2 wire divers on each side. We had just got all our rods set when a big Steelhead hit a 3 color core with a Super Slim Double Red Laser spoon. Then we took a big king on a 7.5 color core with a SS Green Skinny Jeans. All our bites on our first south troll came on cores. We took another King on a 10 color with a SS Super Bread and took the one pictured below on a Super Slim UV Mixed Veggie. We turned in front of the Project and made an upwind troll. All our bites on the upwind came on wire divers with Spin Doctors and meat rigs. A 10″ White Slick Spin Doctor/Pickled Sunshine DW Meat Rig on a high wire out 110 went twice. An 8″ Chrome Kevorkian/UV On Ice Big Water Rig out 85 took a big Coho. When we turned back south they hit on a little bit of everything. We put out a 200 copper with an 8″ Chrome Killer/Yellow Gasoline DW Meat Rig and it took another Coho. Our only core rod to go twice was the 7.5 color with the Green Skinny Jeans Super Slim. We took a Steelhead on the same bait on a 3 color core. We tried a couple different plugs but no bites on them. It was nice to have good action in the middle of the day. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on our copper rods and Morgan’s wire on our wire divers.
