Well fishing has been very good over the past few weeks. Definitely winding down on the mature kings as they move north. We've been catching 10-15 fish per trip with a nice mix of coho, kings, steelhead and a few trout. The kings have been from 110-150ft. Coho get thicker as you move out to the blue colored water. Our Fishhawk temp probe has been critical as the late August winds have been shifting the water around. Our riggers have been 50-90 down with regular size spoons on the outdowns and a flasher/fly on the chute. Our high divers at 200-230 back and lows at 90-120 back have been taking mature coho and kings with meat rigs. Blood Run coppers in 200-400 lengths have been pulling regular sized spoons and flasher flys. Have a great remainder of the season! Black Pearl came out of the water today so that's a wrap on 2023 fishing for our crew.If you have a Salmon Fishing Report for Lake Michigan please click on the "Comments" link below. Fish On!

Fishing has been excellent out of Holland. We've been taking fish from 100-140 most of the past week but the east and north winds have cooled the lake each day. We ended up fishing 70-80ft the past few days with catches of mature kings. 150-250 coppers with ace high plugs and moonshine spoons, divers back 120-180 on highs and 60-80 on lows have been most productive.If you have a Salmon Fishing Report for Lake Michigan please click on the "Comments" link below.
