Fished '90-'140 a bit N last evening...pretty slow. Managed one Rainbow and a shaker, both fish came on spoons with slide divers. The Bow hit an iradescent ladder back Magnum Moonshine 0 down '110 and the shaker hit a purple pearl Pro King 3.5 down '90. A few sea fleas but not too bad, we didn't mark much either. Appears to be a temp break down '30 with low to mid 60's for temp.

A report from Saturday PM / Sunday AM . The weather made it possible to fish as long or as short as you wanted. We caught fish from 125 fow to 220. It seemed every trip brought different results fishing the same water from day to day. The Saturday trip had lake trout & kings with everything coming on F/F combos on copper and wire mag divers. The Sunday trip had riggers firing where they had not the eve before with kings and rainbows. We also caught fish on spoons as well on Sunday. I spoke with people catching fish as shallow as 40 fow and as far out as 450 fow and doing well. The bite was 30 to 70 down on all applications we ran with a speed of 2.1 to 2.4. We also like many were inundated with one shaker after another, so we checked lines as often as possible to get them back quick for healthy release, good luck to all.

A late report from Friday. We set lines in 125 fow about 5:30 pm and started trolling east just a touch north of Sheboygan. The first bite was at 144 fow on a 250 copper with a laker attached. The second bite came in 175 on a rigger 60 down with another lake trout. The next bite would be at 8:00 pm on a rigger 55 down in 205 fow with a UV flasher/fly combo that ended up to be a king just over 22 lbs. Then after the fish was landed a wire 150 out in 210 fow took off and we landed another king ounces over 20lbs. The final bite came at nightfall on a rigger 50 down in 220 with a F/F UV combo resulting in a king 24.2 lbs. We went 5 for 5 with having a great evening of fishing, the water fleas were substantially less than last week and the lake was flat. Good luck to all.

Saturday morning was in 280-300 FOW and a little north. 1-1 with a 13LB lake trout 52 ft down (DR) on a mag pro king blue dolphin. Surface was 72 degrees. 50 degrees 45 ft down and 42 degrees 100 feet down.
Sunday morning was in 80-140 FOW north of Pigeon River. 2 keepers (1 coho and 1 rainbow) and several shakers. Didn't even know they were on the line most of the time. Orange and gold plated spoons were most active. Temp breaks at 30 feet down and 45 feet down. Conditions were ideal. Just no fish. Also, was checked by DNR. Pretty simple. Show your license and life jackets.
SJA, there’s no way to predict whether the salmon fishing will be good next month.
The biggest factor is the water temperature which can change drastically even in just a few days.
You can find the water surface temp either through NOAA or through Michigan State University’s “Coast Watch” page. We need water temps in the mid 50’s.
Your best bet is probably just to check back on here for fishing reports or to call Anglers Avenue bait shop and ask if there’s been a decent bite.
Hope that helps.
