Fishing Reports

 Fishing off Grand Haven remains very good with a mixed bag of Kings, Coho, Steelhead and Lake Trout. The only problem is that the fish are well offshore and very deep making access somewhat difficult for the small boat angler.  Water temperatures remain very warm reaching 70 degrees down 80 feet or more. Most fish have been taken from the cooler water with only a few out of temperature. White paddles, both slick and scaly, and Poofster and Oceana flies have been excellent producers. Green Spin Doctors with green flies like Pickled Sunshine and meat rigs in white, UV and green have also taken fish. Fish riggers deep, 80 feet down to the bottom, divers back 180 to 240 set on 1 1/2 and coppers from 300 to 450 or more. 120 FOW or deeper has been most productive. The good news is there appears to be lots of baitfish and the fish are running large. This will be my last report for 2017. DNR reports will continue and listen to WGHN - FM for daily reports from Capt. Willis Kerridge at 7:20 and 8:20 AM and 3:20 PM. Good fishing! Rich Wilson
