Not sure about anything in Manistee but the Ludington offshore classic went on the last week. Heard of a few close to that range. I do know the fishing was more miss than hit for those who didn't make a long run. Hammbone seemed to pull it together after an early morning move though. Saw a lot of 5 gallon buckets walking to the weigh in this weekend though, instead of coolers.

I was there for the weigh ins, big fish for the most part were scarce. Many boats may have had one or two nice kings, but few had more than that. Alot of Lakers and juvenile salmon were weighed. Way fewer limit catches than limits weighed. Big king was 29.
Incidentally, a 31.40lb king was weighed at captain chucks Saturday. The guy was jigging at the pier heads and hooked some line and proceeded to hand line that big king to the boat. What a fish story, I was there when he weighed it and heard his story direct.

Just finished up 6 days of tournament fishing up there. We had some nice catches and some weak ones. Fish are moving and where they are one day, they are quite likely not there the next. We did take fish over 20# every day but Saturday. One was 27, which took big fish in the Big Boys, a 25 a couple right around 24 a couple around 22 and a couple about 20.5. We pulled in a 25, a 23 and a 20 yesterday, to take 3rd in the 333. Getting trout to cooperate on Saturday, along with losing too many salmon was our undoing for the weekend. We did well early in the week up off Manistee, but that got tough and the guys fishing south seemed to fare better over the weekend. Heard of a lot of fish taken right in front of the piers as well. We caught fish in 34' of water, all the way out over 300. The 29.15 caught yesterday was caught about 150 yards off our port bow, they let out a pretty good warhoop.
