Captain Jim Shutt from Dream-Seaker Charters reports from the UP:
Please print this fish report for the northern Lake Huron area near
Hessel. The fishing around here has steadily increased. There have
been more Atlantic salmon caught this spring than in previous seasons.
White spin doctors with green or white flies have produced well in the
top thirty feet of water, when ran fifty to seventy five behind the
ball. Orange and gold Rapalas, along with perch Rapalas have also done
well with these fish, and the Steel Head trout. Kings are coming in
the eight to twelve pound range on chrome and green, pearl white, and
green with gold back spoons. Nice size Lake Trout have been caught on
meat rigs, along with white and green spoons in one hundred to one
hundred twenty feet of water, within ten to twenty feet of the bottom.
Perch fishing has been slow, but good size perch are being caught on
minnows, and night crawlers. Northern Pike are doing better this season
with many pike in the thirty five inch range caught on large size body
baits in black and gold, and blue and white. Large chubs work as well
when still fishing, and casting the traditional red and white Daredevil.
Remember to use a steel leader for pike, as their teeth are razor
sharp, and will cut your line very quickly.
