    There are people fishing and there are Kings around, but the later it gets in July the more there will be around. Sure the same can be said for most all the Western side of the state from Muskegon North.

    this week should be good. weekend looks like some north wind might set the shelf up. there's a hard southwest blow mid week next week should push the fish in just in time for the money boats.

    There are no big kings to be had nor are they coming. For three springs been pounding this water and it has been a desert for small fish.
    Wisconsin is not hammering kings nor will they be. If you don't plant the they will not come. This will be even worse than last August. Do the math. If you are not seeing small fish years prior there is nothing out there.
    The Little River fish are acting like its August. Hitting in the dark and once a bit of light shows to the east it's over.
    It is going to be a long ugly summer of very empty coolers. Get use to it.

    Not sure what i think. I can remember, 4 man limit catches not so long ago. Even down south this spring fishing was never awesome. So far our best catch on our boat this entire year is 10 and that was 4 Lakers, 6 kings in mid June? I've seen a lot of catches from Wisconsin, from friends, fbook or whatever, a few big ones for sure but not many limit catches, I've seen a lot of boxes of 2-10 fish. Look at their tournament results, not many limit catches there either.

    Fishing will continue to be hit or miss same as its been for a few years now. In Muskegon we have caught more juvenile kings this year than the past two combined at this point of the season. Predicting August catch rates based off May and June doesn't make much sense to me. Less fish overall in the lake means more space to roam which means they will be harder to find on a consistent basis. Try fishing the bank off Frankfort mid to late August and you will see plenty of big fish being caught and anyone with a decent graph knows how many more were laying in wait. Bottom line is be willing to travel to the hot spots as they won't last for long but they will appear up and down the coast same as last year.
