Port Captain Bill Myers from Deltadawn Charters Reports from Gladstone :
It’s a little late in the season here in the UP to say that things are hearing up. But, the water is finally warming up – just in time to cool down again for the fall and winter. Though the fishing has been getting better every day with the warmer water temperatures. On down riggers, the fish have been biting at depths of 40ft to 80ft in a 120ft water column. They’ve been hitting hard on spoons, flasher flies, and Cereal Killer meat rigs.
It was a busy, beautiful weekend aboard the Delta Dawn. Good weather, great guests and even better fishing. I repositioned to Escanaba to take a group of guys from Detroit out who are up here working. They said bringing those big salmon in was harder work than what they were up here to do. After that, I made the run back to Manistique and got ready for an early morning charter with another father and sons team. They brought in some beautiful king salmon and steelhead.
