Harbor Beach MI Fishing Report

Salmon fishing has slowed a little with the water clearing up some.  Try South of the harbor starting in 30 feet of water first thing in the morning and work your way out as the sun comes up.  Try spoons off the downriggers set from 12 feet down to the bottom.  Spoons on the offshore boards running the tadpoles with long lines are working well.  Best colors are blues, greens, silver, and the fire tiger.  Also try some body baits on the boards as well.

Lake Trout are moving out to the deeper water start in 40 feet and work out till you find where they are setting.  Spoons or dodgers with spin and glows 30 feet down to the bottom should work.

Put out some long lines or lead lines with bright colored spoons off the boards for some steelhead.  Oranges, yellows, bright greens and blues are good colors.

If you want to try for some perch, try minnows by the lighthouse or South by the cemetery.  Start in 20 feet and work around till you find them.

Brown Trout will be in close, use long lines to get back away from the boat.  Body baits and spoons in blue, silver, purple or green are good.
Keep those lines tight,
