This will be my last fishing report.
 
Anglers have been fishing the piers in Grand Haven/Holland for steelhead, white fish, and Menominee.  The water is not quite cold enough, but getting close.  All three fish species have been caught, but few numbers and not everyday.
Spawn is the bait of choice.

Fishing in Holland/Grand Haven has been terribly slow.  Wind and weather, along with no fish around has not helped my the fishing report.

 

I talked to 1 guy out of Holland Sunday and he fished 80-170FOW

It is a slim report again this week. The following is based on discussions with the anglers that have gone out.

Water was still warm at both ports of Grand Haven/Holland over the weekend. 

Boat anglers have been fishing 100-160 FOW and it seemed that 120-150 was best.

Grand Haven and Holland are similar again

 

Salmon anglers in boats are fishing 100 feet of water off the pierheads “if” the water rolled and flipped yesterday with the wind and waves.  If, water didn’t flip stick to 100FOW 85-90 on the riggers and 300-400ft coppers.  It is a spoon bite and colors are spring colors yellow/blue, mixed veggie, oranges and a few glow spoons too.

 

Pier fishing has been very slow for steelhead so far, but guys are trying casting and spawn.

 

No perch.

Hello,

Mom says it's ok for me to speak again because I finally have something nice to say! Decent numbers of fish have finally moved into the Grand Haven area and I can pack my "Top 10 reasons they're not biting" list away for the rest of the season.

Finally, a more positive report

 

Grand Haven/Holland---Salmon anglers are fishing 50-250 FOW with the most productive water being 100'.  Downrigger depth is 30'-90'.  Spoons and body baits have been working.  Out deeper it seems that darker colors were working better.  Purple/black.  In closer it was orange and orange/green.

Some mature fish are still being caught out there.
