The thread for 2022 Lake Michigan fishing reports out of Muskegon.

In previous years I make the first trip in mid-May. It has been good for mid-teens silver kings.

This year I am behind on preventive maintenance, although I don’t expect much repair to be needed.

Tackle should be fine for the first trip. Need to put new batteries in the scale and Fish Hawk, and charge the main and accessory batteries. Adjust trailer tire pressures and a squirt of grease in the hubs and I should be good to go.

Maiden voyage fir a couple hours this afternoon with my son. The boy found a 28" brown ready for a fight as we passed the pier heads. Also took a 12" king that was bleeding too bad to release. Both ate stinger spoons, orange dolphin and watermelon. Harbor was 50 degrees, stained lake mi water was 46.

Nice work! Seems like a few more browns are showing up. I've seen a decent report out of Whitehall with some good Kings. Hoping to get out in the next week or so if the boat is ready to go.

Nice box ya got there. I gotta ask but since it was left out I figure it was intentional... spoons? flasher-fly? meat? On the kings, that is. Great job!
