Well folks tonight had to be the night, I got out of work and the temp was 10 below yesterday and everything felt right. It was not the "hot" night most were working a fish or two, I happened to take 4 but only 3 home to due to the fact the fish was so hungry it bit with its other mouth.

Have a good night

Most days you need a 3/4 oz spoon just to get it to the bottom if you are vertical jigging. But the weather hasn't been too bad so I'm sure the current in the channel will allow for a lighter bait right now. We have found that the BPS Tungsten spoons work best. Smaller bait with a smaller hook = less foul hooked fish.

I found a simple method what works best for me:

28ft boat near the north wall. 28ft boat near the south wall. Stretch several hundred feet of heavy duty dipping net, coupled with several down rigger weights, across the channel. Strap each top corner of dipping net on backside top corner of each boat. Position net, than slowly troll boats towards Muskegon Lake.

It almost works better than spoons. :chillin:
