Capt. Ron Westrate of First Call 2 Charters reports from Saugatuck:
This past week we fished in 100 to 160 foot of water with 100 foot to 110 foot producing during the early part of the week and then 130 to 160 foot of water at the end of the week. The creel consisted of 4 to 12 fish consisting of 2 and 3 year old salmon and lake trout. The lake trout continued to hit on the deeper rigs and the salmon were caught on spoons and flashers and flies from 50 foot to 80 foot down.
150 foot of copper and 300 foot of copper with nitro stingray spoons produced some salmon and some hits in the deeper water; however the best method was dipsy divers at 150 foot with the live wire Pro Troll with the Rapture Illusion fly. As we moved out to the deeper water we dropped the dipsy divers back to 250 and 200 foot. The lake trout continued to come on metal Gold Star flashers and Spin n Glos and the Pro Troll white blade blue wiggle flasher and the Rapture Oceana fly.
There are still a few salmon in front of the piers; however you can probably catch as many in 100 foot and get a variety of species and age classes. For information or for a charter reservation, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org→
