Capt. Ken Deaton of J-Lyn Charters reports from Harbor Beach:
Lake Trout fishing is on the slow side right now with the storms that have gone through but should pick back up. Try straight out and North of the harbor using the dodgers with spin and glows close to the bottom. Use clean spoons off the downriggers. Fish 60 foot down to the bottom for best results. Start fishing in 90 feet of water and work your way out to the deeper water till you find them.
Bass and Pike are still being taken casting or trolling spoons and body baits in close to shore or inside the harbor. Fish around the weed beds for best results.
A few Salmon are still being taken straight out and North of the harbor fishing 60 to100 foot of water areas. Work deeper as the sun comes up. Clean spoons off the lead lines, dipseys, and downriggers are all working. Fish 15 to 60 feet down.
Steelhead fishing is fair, fish the color lines for best results. Keep your lines up high. Put out some 2,3, and 5 color lead lines on the boards, bright colors of spoons small, regular and magnum sizes for best results, fishing straight out and North of the harbor, start in 70 feet of water and work out as the sun comes up to 120 to 160 feet of water.
Try for perch South by the cemetery or by Wagner Park using minnows.
