Last Tuesday when you saw the boats was the day to be out, or possibly earlier. I know a guy that picked up a king Saturday, then two on Monday. You can’t wait for reports, it will be over. It’s not exact, it’s easy to be a day early or a day late. I live and work in Oakland County hard to be there when I want, but easy to read the tea leaves. I am attaching a link to the Ludington Thermistor. If it hits 50 degrees at 40 feet from August 1 to Sept 20 go fishing if you are able. There is a lot to learn beyond that advice. Do you fish the pier head or the pond? Do I jig or troll? Since I still struggle with the how’s and where’s and won’t comment beyond the advice I gave you. Besides figuring it out is half the fun!
