Got out Wednesday evening with Tom and Jeff. Went 5 for 7. Initially set up out the the harbor mouth in 120 FOW on a north troll. For the evening, worked 140-115 FOW both north and south half way to Port Sheldon and short of the sliders. Boated two 12.5+ kings, steelhead 11.6lb and 8.6lbs and one small laker. Proctologist fly on a 9.5" chartreuse spinny 55' down on the SB aft rigger got hit 3X. The tail gunner holographic spoon set up the SB side rigger with light line, 65' down and 70' out got hit 3X. And one runner, likely a steely hit a double orange crush spoon on a dipsey about 40' down - we did not boat that one. Surprisingly, port side SWR was untouched all night. And no action on 100' and 200' of copper. The only action on 300' of copper was a massive tangle (thank you Mr. Steelhead) that decommissioned the set-up. Figure the spinny was doing the heavy lifting most of the night. Chatter seamed to be slow. Believe we had a lucky night coming in better than most boats.
These are King Salmon and Trout Fishing Reports from Lake Michigan near Holland, Saugatuck, Grand Haven, and Port Sheldon. Coho, Chinook, Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout caught mainly trolling with downriggers, lead lines, copper wire, and dipsy divers. Please add your report by responding to the most recent report. Fish on!

Friday was a beautiful night to be on the water. Got 5 of the 6 rods to go. Wonderbread J-Plug on 300' of copper, SWR 70' down w/ green dolphin hologram, down rigger 80' down with a watermelon hologram spoon took a 10lb steely, and both dipseys fired at 50-55' down on a 2 set with a UV green dolphin and a mag black fin tuna that took a 10-12lb king. Little to no chatter on channel 68 other than a few comments on washing lures.
