  3. Big Lake Cold Water Fishing Reports
    Hey there. I just bought my first boat a few weeks ago and I’ve been wanting to get out to Saugatuck to try for steelhead and salmon. My grandfather and I used to fish out there regularly when I was a young child, but haven’t been out there in probably 6 years. How is the fishing out there...
  4. Big Lake Cold Water Fishing Reports
    Reports from last week showed further south still producing better than my planned run to St Joe so we put in Saturday morning at New Buffalo. We drove across the state in a steady rain but it stopped a few miles before hitting the launch. We somehow got to fish for a few hours without a drop of...
  5. Big Lake Cold Water Fishing Reports
    I have a podcast I started recently and the first episode I talk about how to get started fishing Lake Michigan salmon from a small boat. It is available on iTunes and soundcloud. I don’t claim to be a world class Lake Michigan fisherman, but I hope I can help shorten your learning curve if you...
  6. Big Lake Cold Water Fishing Reports
    Headed out with some friends tomorrow and can't decide where to start. We probably won't do the early AM run because my friend gets out of work at midnight. We can fish any port from St. Joe to Muskegon, haven't really heard of any numbers of kings being caught. Anyone have advice? We are...

    How about a running thread for Muskegon reports? Waters include the channel, outer harbor and big water. What's biting?
  9. Cold Water Species Fishing
    Hi everybody! I will be in Glen Arbor this weekend with my family! I've never fished up that way before but brought a rod along with my tackle box (mainly smallmouth and largemouth lures).... Is there any good shore fishing of Lake Michigan? Is it possible this time of year? If so, what species...
  10. Big Lake Cold Water Fishing Reports
    How's the fishing in Frankfort? I plan to be out there the week of July 29 - August 5 with several new anglers on board, possibly one from Germany. Hope to have a string of days with good conditions. My normal routine is like everyone else: clear the pier arms at o-dark-thirty and have...

    Hi guys, New to the forums here and I was wondering if anyone had an knowledge about fishing for bass in Pere Marquette Lake and Ludington Harbor. I'd like to target smallmouths but largemouths are still more than welcome. Should I just fish the breakwalls of the harbor and riprap in PM? What...
  14. Cold Water Species Fishing
    Today I had something brought to my attention. I'm a first mate out of grand haven and I was told by a captain that he would take a special group of customers 11-15 miles out in about 300ft of water to fly fish for steelhead that were feeding way up near the surface. Obviously when everything is...
  15. Big Lake Surf/ Pier Reports
    I'm not sure what forum this question best fits into, but I'll place it here. I'm thinking about taking my kayak out on Lake Michigan to do some near-shore fishing by the mouth of a big creek near Traverse City. I'm still very new to kayak fishing the big lake/ surf fishing. I'm wondering if I...

    I want to get out on some of the big water action but have a 14' V Sea Nymph with 25hp. Was wondering if anyone had insight on the best times to catch fish in the inland lakes spilling into Lake MI. Maybe if conditions were perfect such as low wind and no more than 2' waves, I'm thinking of...
