We ran a two boat group charter today with the Dreamweaver. The fishing was good. We got an early start leaving the dock at 5:00 a.m. We set up north off the Bank in 130 fow. The fish were biting right away. We went 4 for 5 while we were setting lines. A pair of Dreamweaver Beefeaters down 58 ft. on an out down took our first and third fish. A 11″ White Dreamweaver Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly 100 down on the chute went and we landed a nice King on that rig. The other out down set at 70 with a pair of glow spoons went twice and we got 1 and missed 1. The morning bite was over fairly quickly. Then we just picked away the rest of the trip. Our hot rod was a 250 copper with a regular size Fuzzy Bear Frozen Veggie. It went 4 times. Our high wire divers were productive. A 10″ Mountain Dew Spin Doctor/Cold Steel Big Water Meat Rig out 220 took a couple fish and a 10″ Blue Chrome NBK Spin Doctor/Blue Thunder Big Water Meat Rig out 200 took 3 fish. We took 1 and broke 1 off on 10″ White Crush Spin Doctor/Froggie Big Water Meat Rig out 160 on a low wire diver. We took a Steelhead on a 5 color core with a Yeck Fire Ball. We had our big Paddle on the chute rigger stacked with a regular size Fuzzy Bear Ally Cat and that went twice and the Paddle went a couple more times. We fished mostly between 120 & 160 fow between the 01’s & 05’s. The fish count was pretty even between both boats but we did beat them by 2 fish. Dreamweaver caught the big one weighing 16.5 lbs., beating us out by 6 onces.
Ludington Area Fishing Reports
Tough fishing today. We fished up north off the Bank. There was a big pocket of cold water between the 59’s & 02’s. The surface temp got as cold a 42 degrees. It started warming once we got into the 02’s and we set up in 180 fow. The surface temp was 47.8. We hit our first fish on a 8 color core with a glow bloody nose spoon. We were in the 03’s in 100 fow. It was a Steelhead. We hit another one on the same rig but it got off. Then we boat rode for a while. It was hard to get a good troll. It seemed like the waves were coming from three different directions. We never marked a lot of fish but we quit marking anything in the high 04’s so we turned back south. We made an out troll once we got past the point. We boated a nice King on the out on a 11″ White Dreameaver Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly 100′ down on the chute rigger. The surface temp warmed to 50 degrees in 210 fow. We turned and trolled NE. We missed a fish on a 12 color with a Mag SOG Dreamweaver Spoon and took one on a 10 color with a Fuzzy Bear Frozen Veggie. The wind switched NW and the Lake calmed down. We trolled back north when we hit 140 fow and hit 3 fish on that north troll. We missed one on a high wire out 220 on a 10″ Mountain Dew Spin Doctor/Cold Steel Big Water Meat Rig and took a King on a 10″ Blue NBK Spin Doctor/Blue Thunder Big Water Rig out 200 on the other high wire. Our chute rigger down 100 with the Paddle/Pickled Sunshine took the King Pictured above. The 8 color took one more Steelhead. We lost a nice King right behind the boat on a 10″ White Slick Spin Doctor/Froggie Big Water Meat Rig down 85 on an out down.
