Port Captain Bill Myers from Deltadawn Charters Reports from Gladstone : Been pretty busy with the national fur trappers convention in town. I took people from Ga. and Tn. Salmon fishing -another birthday charter. The winds are unforgiving. The two kids from Tn got to land their salmon before mom got chumming! Fish have been coming in 120 to 160ft of water. There is a good steelhead bite going on and the kings are big. Best time seems to be just before sun up on spoons and flys. Cereal Killer meat rigs are working in the mid day. … [Read more...]

Port Captain Bill Myers from Deltadawn Charters Reports from Gladstone :   Had a couple of charters -one evening trip to Manistique and another to Fairport.

  Port Captain Bill Myers from Deltadawn Charters Reports from Gladstone The morning started out with a bang; thunder and lightning that is -with northeast winds at 5-10mph to boot. Luckily for us, the front passed and we set sail out of Gladstone harbor into the beautiful Bays de Noc. This was the second charter for the Harker family and the Delta Dawn. The first time out we went salmon fishing and mom and dad had to catch all the fish as the kids where to small to handle the salmon. So this morning, for our second adventure, we went walleye fishing and it was all up to the boys to bring in the days limit. Their face's said it all as soon as we got the lines in the water. It made me wonder just who got caught the fish or kids? After a beautiful mornings fishing, we ended up with 4 walleye in the box. We lost 4 and threw back 3 more, plus 3 bass. Unfortunately, the rain came back we called it a day. The boys wanted to stay but mom and dad said "no another time". … [Read more...]
