The fish are still a little scattered, so you will want to try out in a little deeper water to start. Keep a towel handy at the back of the boat, the green vegetation is still here for a while. Best way to clear it off the lines so you can reel in the fish is using a towel to wipe it off with as you reel in the lines.
Try for the Lake Trout in the 70 to 120 foot of water areas, try some dodgers with spin and glows or spoons close to the bottom for best results.
Try for Salmon in the 60 to 95 foot of water areas straight out, South and North of the harbor. Try spoons off the downriggers and dipseys, or 2,5,and,10 colored lead lines. Orange and black, red, blue, grey, or green colors should still be your best colors.
Steelhead should be in the same areas. Look for some color lines on the water and work them for best results. Bright colored spoons closer to the top are the best bet. Put these out on some Offshore boards for best results.
Try for Brown Trout in closer to shore. Use long lines with bright colored spoons and body baits. Using the Offshore boards will let you get in closer to shore with your baits.
Bass are still being taken inside the harbor and in close to shore casting or trolling spoons and body baits.
There is plenty of water at the ramps and out the channel, ask at the office which docks have the best water.
Keep those lines tight,Captains Ken and Janice Deaton J-Lyn Charters Harbor Beach MI 810-542-0426 www.jlyncharters.com
