6-30-17 Fishing Report

Tough fishing today. We set up straight out and a little north of Ludington harbor today in 120 feet of water. We put our Fish Hawk probe down to the bottom for a temp check and found 57 degree water. Last time we fished there it was 48 degrees 120 ft. down. The current coming from the north was very strong and heavy fog set in. Not the best of conditions. Our first fish came on a low wire diver out 250 with an 8″ Chrome Spin Doctor/Chrome Blue WhirlyGig. That was our best set up today. A 10″ Chrome Spin Doctor, pictured below, with the same WhirlyGig on our other low wire went twice. We tried a northeast troll for a while but with the strong north current it was had to keep our lines from tangling. At one point we had fish on both our out downs and they both got tangled with the chute rigger. What a mess. We got one trout and lost the other one right behind the back of the boat. We took a Coho on a 250 copper with a Super Slim Super Bread spoon. That spoon has been good for at least one fish per trip lately. We got as deep as 220 feet and as shallow as 105 feet. Most of our action came between 120 and 150 feet of water. We had 15 bites and landed 8 fish.
