Daily updates on the fishing in Lake Michigan, posted by Captain Gintas.
My Charters have been hooking Salmon trolling in and out of the mouth on many trips. 100 to 120 feet of water, down 10 colors of lead to the bottom on your lead lines. Mixed bag. Big FISH!
The shore guys are staring to catch Kings every night and some during the day on blue and silver Cleos. Body baits with rattles at night. The off-shore action has heated up as the 3 year old Kings are fattening up. Speed trolling (2.6 to 3 knots) with magnum spoons in 100 to 125 feet of water is the ticket for Kings and Steelies.
It's that time of year whwn we need to collect and properly cure our EGGS. The shore guys are getting a few KINGS at the Harbor mouths every day. This is the Loop Knot that is perfect for Skein under a bobber when the Kings are schooled up in the Harbors. Use an Octopus Gmagatzu sizes depend on your piece of bait. #4 is nice in red or orange.
Most of our action has been coming on spoon, (10 core, 300 and 150 Coppers) have beem taking a big percentage of our fish. Magnum Sppons trolled fast, 2.8 knots to 3.3 knots has been best.
Mitchell and his son Russ from NY are teaming up tp kick some Chicagos fishe's butts!
