Started at 4:30am today. Calm conditions could here em' jumping around. At 1st light, jumping continued, 11-15 lbs I'd say. Threw glow spoons, diff.color spoons, spinners, stick baits & skein on stationary rod. NOTHING!!! Stayed til about 10am. To warm still, I think. DNR surveyor said water still 63ish. Said catching at night by DNR on ThunderStick type baits. Will try weds night after work. Gotta work out there til 7pm. Hopefully it cools off soon, heard it might rain tonight, might help. Keeps up like this and we may have to wait 2 or more weeks!! Got the fever, just not picking up here yet. Got a King 1st weekend in Sept. in Ludington, Michigan but that's it. Hopefully here soon, good luck to all. Tight lines!!!

Went out this past weekend (sun). Wind was really blowing. Didn't even attempt main pier. Fished by Dnr for a few hours. No one caught fish. Went out week prior on Monday and started fishing at 3am off of main pier. Cloudy,little rain. Conditions appeared perfect! 0 caught. Had 1 steelhead on for a second or so. DNR surveyor told me 6 Kings were caught Sunday night by the DNR. Went by DNR at about 1pm on this day and saw a handful of Cohos jumping all around, but couldn't get em' to bite. Looked really chrome. Just got in system? Lock jaw? Stayed til 4:30 pm nothing. Talking to a guy this past Sunday by DNR and he said he was there Tuesday and caught a 32" coho. I think he meant king. But what ever, he got one!! Can't get up there this week due to work. I bet it starts getting really good this week. Off Monday and tues next week. Will hit it hard again. Should be in a little more consistently by then. Fished Ludington Michigan 1st week of September and caught 1 King off the pier. Lost on in the river (Pere Marquette). Late run up there this year. Probably late here as well. Good luck, and tight lines to all.

Well guys, wish I had a good report for you tonight, but I got skunked. Got to the pier at 5pm and cast Spoons and large crank baits until my arms fell off around 8:30pm. Wind was out of the northeast about 5-10mph and waves were crashing hard on the east side of the pier. No one on the pier, (about 5-8 guys), was doing or seeing any fish at all. It was a shame too... it was a great night to cast off the pier, too bad the fish were elsewhere!!! Tight lines!!

Well lets put it this way, if you are ever looking for a report about Indiana, forget it. Never will it be there when you want it nor will it be on time or even about the fish you want. The folks in Indiana think they are the only people in the world that can fish and so do not want anyone fishing in Indiana that dont belong there! To make a long story shorter....Don't look her for any advice for fishing.....EVER! Sad

Hi archer3684,

When did you guys catch those steelheads?

During Summer (after June) or just recently?

I'm planning to go to trail creek to check if there's any steelheads swimming up already.

Thanks!

Try fishing Creek Ridge county park. My son and I were at route 20 just south of 20 on Trail Creek. He caught his first steelhead there and I have hooked 2 at Creek ridge county park. They are running up and down the stream in the deeper pools. Try Spawn sacs, worms or shrimp. My oldest son and I are going to the pier tomorrow morning weather permitting. Smile

Went out last night Wednesday and skies were clear and the weather was great!!! Unfortunately, the jumping fish that were everywhere were not hungry because no one got so much as a bump bite. Threw spoons and rattle body baits and not so much as a look. I checked with several people and nothing going on that evening... Is it a morning only bite out at MC pier??? I wonder... Dull Dull Dull

Went out Saturday the 21st from 6pm to 11pm. Wind out of the north shut down everything. No one was even getting a bump on the pier or by the yacht club. Lousy night... Angry

Fished the pier Tuesday night from 5:30 to 9:00. I had 2 fish on but lost both of them. One was a steelhead and the other a king. Fishing was stopped by the dredging going on in the opening to the lake. Over all not a bad night. Big Smile
