Still collecting heads?
Yes we are still collecting heads of any fish that have a missing adipose fin only.
I have a boat I can fish salmon and trout off it without a problem . I got all sorts of gear so I'm not lacking in that department but I haven't caught a Atlantic salmon . last year I moved up to Rudyard and I'm probably I don't know 40-minute drive from let northern lake Huron detour area if I want to Target Atlantic what's my best strategy how how do I go about doing it the best way copper, down downriggers, dipsy's, lead core, and planer boards
Read through the Detour thread that was going last summer. Has tons of great info for Atlantics in that location. Essentially fish them similar to steelhead, running bright spoons from 35ish ft up to the surface. Speeds between 2.5 and 4 mph. All methods take fish, don’t forget to run sliders on the riggers. Im hoping to get back up there and fish it again this year.
My top spoon for Atlantic’s is yeck spoon in Jerry Lee always have at least two running all the time!
Which port would the best best to catch an Atlantic, if you had a 14ft boat and were on a quest to catch one? Which month would be my best bet for closer in action?
Fish de tour
It’s a long ass drive but some days the fishung is so friggin good. And you can plan to go on a calmer day since you’ll be in the river mostly and closer to shore anyhow
I just realized this thread was here and hope its a better late than never thread.
I caught this girl on June 30th out of Port Sanilac. Measured right at 31 inches and weighed 12.2 lbs.
It had eggs in it that were pretty small for salmon eggs. Not sure if its normal.
Unfortunately I did not keep the head ( but did keep the eggs ).
Nice healthy fish ! What depth was that lure at when she hit ?
Not sure exactly because it was on a 4 ft slider on my downrigger that was only 35ft down.
Probably only 17 ft down, so it was pretty close to the boat.
