Capt. Janice Deaton reports from SLH J-Lyn Charters The high winds we have had the last few days will have the fish scattered so you will need to look for them. Try straight out and North of the harbor, starting in 50 foot of water, work a West to East troll back and forth from 50 to 120 feet of water till you find where they are setting at. Clean spoons off the downriggers and Offshore boards should work for you. Put out some 2,3,5,and 10 colored lead lines off the boards too. Try using blue, green, orange and black colors to start. Set your lines from 30 to 95 foot down for best results. Slower speeds will be best for your Lake Trout and faster for your Salmon and Steelhead.(1.5 to 3.0) Good Luck. Keep those lines tight, Captains Ken and Janice Deaton … [Read more...]

Port Capt. Janice Deaton Of J-Lyn Charters Reports from Harbor Beach:   The wind has been making it hard to get out there and fish this week.  Hopefully the rough water will get rid of the dead vegetation film that was coming up from the bottom. It was making a mess of the lures and lines.  If it is still there be patient while you clean it off of your lines, as those fish will not come near your lures with any of it on the lines or lures.  They do not like it either!    Once the wind calms and the waves subside, you will want to try for Salmon and Steelhead in 60 to 150 foot of water, North and straight out from the harbor with spoons off the downriggers and also try some 2,3,5,7,and 10 color lead lines off the Offshore boards.  The bright orange, copper, white with black dots, and gold are good colors to start with.    Try for the Lake Trout South, North, and straight out of the harbor in 80 to 160 foot of water areas, using dodgers with the spin and glows, … [Read more...]
