Harbor Beach, Michigan Fishing Report 7/13/12

Lake Huron King

Lake Trout fishing is slow to fair fishing in 60 to 120 feet of water. Use dodgers with spin and glows, squid,or flys close to the bottom. Try green, black and white or blue colors. Be there early morning for the best bite.

Steelhead are still being taken on the color lines. Start in 50 feet of water and work out. Green and glow, orange, and bright colored spoons on two, three, and five color lead lines with the Offshore Boards are working best. Early morning is the best fishing for right now.

Coho and some kings are on the slow side but some are still being taken in 40 to 120 feet of water areas first thing in the morning, using spoons off the dispeys and downriggers and two, three, and five colored lead lines with the Offshore boards. Try working 25 to 60 feet down. Yellow tails, green with glow, mongoose, and watermelon colors are still working best..

Pike and Bass are still being taken inside the harbor and close to shore on spoons and body baits.

Perch fishing is slow, try South of the harbor by the cemetery using minnows.

Walleye fishing is still on the slow side, but some are starting to be taken North of the harbor at first light in 30 nto 70 feet of water on crawler harnesses or small spoons and body baits. Early mornings and late evening.

Keep those lines tight!
