Just curious if the water is still dirty in the harbor. Usually fish outside, but saturday may be too rough for the crew. Thankss.
By the way anyone know how the southshore launch is. Useable?
Almost the same report as Saturday and similar to X-Rays today. 3 of us 7a-12 going 6-19. Lots of thrashing hits that fell off. 2 coho at the boat, one was netted, the other did a Michael Jackson dance and popped off. The remainder of the fish we saw were browns with a rather nice one today as well!
Solo this morning going 6-12. Standard April program. It was a big brown day with 3 really large C4s and lost 2 others. Did boat 2 small C4s with adipose clipped. They measured out at 17.5 inches and less than a pound. Did shake off a small coho boatside.
Congrats Tsquare, I was actually hoping we were going to connect with early arrival coho. Guess I errored on fishing cleaner water deeper than warmer shallower. We fished in 50-55' picking up 4 big lakers for our smokers. Hoping this weather warm up and river flows pushes the bigger coho schools into our area.
Fished 10-3 today solo going 8/14 with 2 coho and 6 browns targeting less than 25fow. One of the browns was bigger and the rest were rather cookie cutter sized. Hits were spotty though, there was a period where I watched multiple (>40 min?) Youtube videos in a row while the Ipilot drove until I heard a drag go followed by another and another. Figures... Overall wonderful to be out again considering it was a damn blizzard last weekend.
Fished lake Michigan out of McKinley. Started south near Oak Creek and then trolled the harbor for a couple of hours. Ended the day 0/1. 1 hit on a 2 color. Fish got off as soon as I got the rod in hand. Water temps were 44.5 degrees down south, 38-42 in the harbor, 37-38 everywhere in between. Water clarity appeared to be halfway decent with a few cloudy spots here and there. I also saw what looked to be a dead northern pike or musky floating in the harbor. 40+ inches. Interesting.....
I flew over the lake this morning returning from the east coast. The mud line for Milwaukee extended out over a mile from shore. After enjoying Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the mid-eighties, I was greeted by a muddy, wind-swept lake and snow on the ground. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
