Well, Scrub was right. 5 hours of fishing from 5-10am on Saturday. 1 hit and 1 bow down 85 feet, go figure. Lots of boats all morning, only saw 1 other fish caught.
Lake Michigan, Sturgeon Bay, Door County
I know, thanks
Scrub, good one!
Too cold, fish aren’t there yet
Anyone been out to the bank yet? Seems pretty quiet on here. I'll be out Saturday and will report back if anyone is interested.
We were out from 5-10am. Don't feel bad fishing time, got 1 about every hour. Still beats watching tv. Enjoy your reports fishing time!
I tried on Saturday mid-day, probably not the best time, but that's when I had time.. Fished 150 to 80 ft and 40 ft into 25 ft near harbor entrance. Skunked, not a bite, 3 hrs on water. That has been happening a lot lately.. Water was not as cool as I expected either. Ran mixes of spoons, j plugs and couple FF. Marked thermocline down 90 to 100 ft near reef. Saw a few jumping inside the harbor. Talked to a couple other boats and they also were skunked. Will try again soon.
Fished Saturday 300-400ft, 350 seemed to be best. 48 degrees down 100. 5 for 6, 1 rainbow on a 10 color with spoon. The other 4 were on a spoon down 100, nothing on dodger fly combos. Great day to be out ended with two 3 yr old kings 2 rainbows and a smaller king
Went out Sunday 8/26 from 4am-10am. Haven't reported in a long time on here and seeing that this post is pretty dead, here we go:
5 for 5, 4 salmon and 1 lake trout. Water cooled off a lot since last trip out. Surface was about 67 degrees in closer and out to bank reef. In 150 ft water the temp break was 50 degrees 45 to 50 ft down. Out in 400 ft water the temp break moved down and was 50 degrees about 65 ft down and surface was warmer at 72 degrees. NO pattern on colors. Spoons took 4 of the 5 fish. Most of our fish came between 140 and 180 ft of water. The lake trout was out in 400 ft water. All fish hit between 35 and 55 down on lead core or down riggers. Dipsy did not have any action. Noticed heavy currents, so used dipsy rod to judge bait speed. Fish bit running faster at 2.8 to 3.0 mph GPS speed going with current. Anyone else have a report from Sturgeon Bay? Notice boats spread way out from 70 ft all way out to 400+. Wondering how the rest did?
