Went out for a few hours tonight with my dad. We worked North in 30 to 50 FOW. We went 3 for 3. 2 Kings and a nice Bow. 2 spoon bites on riggers and 1 plug bite on a board...just when you think youve seen it all-we were fighting our third fish on a board and one guy in a boat under power slows down and drops in and anchors right in front of us....unreal. Could have threw a stone in his boat lol needless to say we turned to avoid him and his bottom rig.

According to the last 2 nites @ the cleaning station @ boat landing, there's nothing wrong w/ the water temps, 53-58 degrees, perfect. That's the consensus from over 50 boats I've inquired from. Smile

has the lake ever not stratified that anyone can remember? i've only been fishing lake michigan for about 10 years, but it appears to me the fishing is so difficult because the lake temps are just cold all over/at all depths, and the fish are so scattered...as the previous post noted. i'm hoping that's the cause of the poor fishing rather than having to do with the amount of fish stocked and remaining in the lake.

Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 76° - 80º F Water Temp: 56° - 60° F
Wed AM trip 1/4. 4 yr old king on lighted jplug on DR set at 45 in 95 fow before sunrise. PM trip 3/5 all kings (all at sunset or after) right around the Chamberlain. 2 on 3 color f/f and orange glow spoon and 1 on dipsy wonder bread glow jplug 110 loc. Surface temp has gone from 51 on Saturday to 56 on Wed but the lake hasn't stratified yet so fish are all over the place and tough to target.

We started at 1pm 50 to 90 fow. fishing until 7pm. Couldnt take the excitement any longer so we pulled lines. We went 0 for 2 and skunk perfume for all of us. A tomato bath helps and now we have to eat pizza.

I use to fish from the port of Sheboygan and we did really good. Living on the other side of the state made it hard though. When I read the reports lately and see so little being caught I just want to ask is the fishing that poor this year ?

trawl line. a line used for fishing, having numerous short lines with baited hooks attached at intervals.

Okay boys, let's be a little polite. I believe the correct answer to the "catch & release" inquiries is that research seems to indicate quite poor survival rates for mature salmon released after the typical fight and netting.

Trawling? You putting your landing net on your downriggers now? NO!

I have thought about the fact that more 2 and 3 year old kings are targeted in the fall then ever. Boat fishing now goes deep in to the fall and almost in to December. A lot of 3 year olds are taken and it has to affect the next years class of 4 year olds. Very few 3 year old kings mean even less 4 year old kings.

Has anyone considered the fact we have gotten so good at catching and keeping two year old fish with our multi rod trawling methods we might have affected our own sport?
