Went to Montrose Thursday from 5:30am to 10:00. Wind was howling from the nw, made for a bad day but better than being inside or at work lol. Anyway no hits and no bumps what so ever. 3 guys were powerlineing with no results oh well thats fishing. Good luck everyone and tight lines.

Teejay, the thing you described with a million hooks is a powerline.

now realizing that my last question was stupid. Tounge Out i went to motrose on tuesday throwing kastmasters, rattletraps and shadraps. i fished with a friend for 5 hoiurs with no results couldnt find the fish or the right speed to retrieve but one person said they caught a small brown on a spoon. what are the rigs that people use with a million hooks and no rod? it reminds me of a trotline. is this what people call powerlines? just curious. also any tips would be helpful in terms of retrieve.

Ohyea247 you need to have a Lake michigan salmon/trout stamp and the kastmasters are half ounce, but 3 quarter ounce will work also they have in the past. I will probably be out there again Thursday morning and will give another report. Good luck and tight lines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ohyeah- you will need a LM salmon stamp to take any of the trout/salmon - this is different than the inland trout stamp.

Went to Montrose this morning dead dead dead. Tried for Perch none no dinks either, ice is pretty much broken up and gone. Also tried the rocks for perch with a bobber, while casting a cleo for any coho or trout finding it interesting lol. I was out from 6am to 9:30 and saw no one catch anything includeing myself. Good luck to everyone and tight lines!!!!!!!!!!!
