Port Capt. Janice Deaton Of J-Lyn Charters Reports from Harbor Beach:   The fish are still scattered with all of the storms and wind we have had this week, so you will still need to do some searching to find them.  Try straight out, North, or South of the harbor.  Work from 50 foot out to 200 foot of water.  Set your lines down 30 foot to the bottom.    Try for Salmon and Steelhead with spoons off the downriggers and also try some 2,3,5,7,and 10 color lead lines off the Offshore boards.  Try the bright orange, green, silver, purple, white with black dots, and gold colors.  There are still some bug hatchings going on and the fish are full of them so it will be hard to get them to bite.   Try for the Lake Trout South, North, and straight out of the harbor in 120 to 200 foot of water areas, using dodgers or spin doctors with the spin and glows and spoons close to the bottom and also spoons down 50 to 100 feet.   Walleye fishing is still on the slow side, but … [Read more...]

Port Capt. Janice Deaton Of J-Lyn Charters Reports from Harbor Beach: Steelhead and Salmon, are scattered with the storms going through, but some were being taken in the 50 to 80 foot of water areas straight out, South and North of the harbor, using Spoons off the downriggers, and the 2, 3, 5, and 7 colored lead lines off the Offshore boards. Small, Regular and Magnum size spoons are still working best. Look for the color lines on the lake and work them for best results.
