Fished south again today setting up in 120 feet of water. We took 2 fish early. We took a King on a mag glow spoon on a 225 copper and a nice Coho on a 175 copper with a mag Fuzzy Bear Green Skinny Jeans. We marked some bait near the surface and a few fish but the large schools of bait we saw yesterday were gone. We didn’t have any more bites so we headed west for deeper water. We trolled for 3 miles without a bite then we took the King pictured above on a 225 copper with a UV Blue Dolphin Super Slim. We took a Steelhead on a 7.5 color core with a Yeck Fireball. We hit a big fish in he middle of a turn on a 225 copper with a Yeck 66 Lighting spoon. It ran out a lot of line, got tangled in one of our cores, and got off. All our bites today came on coppers & cores.
Ludington Fishing Reports
Fished south again today. We had 15 rods set before a Coho took a Captain’s Choice Natural Glow plug on a 225 copper. It went again later in the morning but we didn’t get the fish. The big King pictured above hit a regular size DW Green Skinny Jeans on a 225 copper. We took another Coho on a 300 copper with a regular size DW Raspberry Carbon. Our high wire divers were our best rods today. The starboard high out 285 with a 10″ White Slick Spin Doctor/Pickled Sunshine Dreamweaver Meat Rig went 3 times and a 10″ Yellow Sparkler Spin Doctor/Cold Steel Big Water Meat Rig out 250 went 4 times on our port high diver. We took 1 of our bigger Kings on a low wire diver out 165 with an 8″ Chrome Killer Spin Doctor/Green Mile Dreamweaver Meat Rig. With the exception of 2 bumps on an out down set at 80 feet with a pair of DW Blue Skinny Jeans we didn’t have any rigger action. We have the next 2 days off and weather permitting will be back on the water Saturday. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs, Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods & Morgan’s wire on all our wire rods.
