The recent warm weather has made for some pretty decent fishing out on the Big Lake. Catches have still varied widely but empty coolers have been rare even for the guys that don't get out very often.

The good news is that the past week has provided us with our best fishing since 2012. Mostly Kings in the 8 to 18 pound range have provided the action and there has been plenty of that. A few Cohoes, Lake Trout and Steelhead have added to the fun. Green Spin Doctors like the Fat Nancy, Live Wire and Seneca Special with green flies like Pickled Sunshine, Green Bubbles and Seaweed have all been very effective.
Grand Haven: Boat anglers are catching salmon 40 to 85 feet down in 80 to 130 feet. Steelhead were caught on orange spoons in the top 30 feet. Salmon were caught on blue and green spoons and flies or white paddles, spinnies and flies. Yellow, blue green or purple meat rigs also caught fish. Pier fishing slowed as water temperatures were back up to 65 degrees or more.
The good news is that there are some really nice fish in the area and better days are seeing some double digit catches. Steelhead to 15 lbs and kings up to 23 lbs have been showing up in catches at our dock.
