Captain Ron Westrate reports from the southern ports of Lake Michigan
A great week of fishing with limit catches most days. 2/3 rds of the creel still consist of Lake Trout, however there are more Chinook Salmon and Steelhead showing up. Even with the rough water and high winds toward mid week the fishing was very consistent.
The Lake Trout were again taken on metal dodgers and spin n glos on the down riggers and low divers. The salmon were hitting on silver/mountain dew and silver flashers with the Rapture Illusion UV and yellow beads on high divers at 100 and 120 foot. Every morning, on the middle down rigger, we are running a glow bladed UV Pro Troll flasher and green beaded No See Um and when the sun gets higher we switch over to the Pro Troll Davie Jones flasher and Rapture Last Supper fly and it is good for 2 to 3 salmon a day and an occasional lake trout. The 100 foot, 150 foot and 200 foot copper are producing the steelhead and salmon with small Ace Hi plugs (glow green, pearl and silver green).
