6-22-19 – East Winds were howling to start off the trip, but they finally slowed down around 9am. Surface temps are still cold for this time of year and the best fishing was from 60-80 foot down using a variety of lures from Hood Outdoors.
It was hard to get a consistent troll with the waves, but once we found the right direction, the fish cooperated. We hit a double of kings on a 100 and 300 copper. Moonshine UV and Stinger UV spoons on the coppers were good.
There are still some coho around and they were snapping about 75 down on the riggers. The currents were very strong and getting the right speed was critical. One minute you were trolling at 3.2 mph at the ball and the next it would be 1.8mph. The warmer temps this week should change everything, but there are plenty of coho, kings, and lake trout to be had.
On our way back to their pier-heads we saw a few skamania steel-head being boated off the pier. This fishing should be good for the rest of the month. Book a trip with out South Haven fishing charters online to experience the great fishing this year!
