Fishing Reports

 The Kings are coming! The Kings are coming and we're  happy to be back on the water fishing for them. The strong North winds this past week cooled the water and scattered the fish, but mature Kings were still caught in water depths ranging from the piers to 130 feet. Fish were caught from 10 to 60 feet down on a variety of lures. Bright spoons such as the Red and Orange Pepper Dreamweavers and the Jawbreaker Stinger worked well. With the cold water, short lead cores of 2 to 5 colors were effective. Some fish were also taken on plugs and meat rigs. If you prefer Steelhead, try fishing the river water near the pierheads early in the day. Fish the top 15 feet with oranges and pinks and don't be afraid to pick up your speed to 3.5 mph or more. Lake Trout remain active near bottom in 100 to 140 feet of water and can be caught on the usual 8 inch Spin Doctors and Spin-n-Glows or Whirligigs. The changing water temperatures this past week point out the importance of being aware of changes. Temperatures dropped almost 20 degrees in one day! The Grand Haven Steelheaders website provides links to local buoys which can provide important information on currents and temperatures both on the surface and at various depths. Good Fishing, Rich
