Check “Betsie River Campsite” on River Dr. 2 miles from the launch. Betsie River “Campground” is in Thompsonville near Crystal Mtn. About 1/2 hour away.
Planning on joining the zoo this weekend.... Coming from LSC. Anyone recommend an area to camp at where I can charge my boat batteries?
That picture reminds me of myself…after every fish.

First salmon jigging. 20#. What fun!
If the temp holds, we were doing very well last weekend working to stay on top of the bank off the green. No boats inside us so we had all the room we wanted to fight fish.

3 & 4 colors were our best - Wire Divers at 75 (two different sizes) and riggers 25 & 30.

We had 41 degrees at 30 then. Looking at the reports it still seams to be close to that today.

The important thing with the Fishhawk last week was not the temp so much with cold water close to surface, but the difference in speed at ball going S vs. N. If you don't have one, really watch your divers and wire on the riggers to get a gage on what is happening sub surface. There was a huge difference last week with the current down by the point. Heading S, there were places our SOG was close to 1.2 but at the ball it was still 2.6 only 30 feet down. That was one of the reasons when we hooked up and slowed down to fight fish we could point S and still keep taking hits. We basically had a 5 banger last time out. Never more than 3 at any one time but as soon as we netted a fish another rod went off. We had 3 on continually for about 40 minutes without ever resetting a line and took all 5, all 15-22#. By then is was well after dark and we just cleaned up an went in.
Will be out tonight and tomorrow morning. Debating on whether to head out to the normal depth or stay shallow up by the piers. It’s days like this where a fish hawk would be great lol
Betsie River campsite (probably full)
Kampvilla 1/2 hr away

Ended 2-7 last night, couldn’t keep ‘em buttoned up. The high cold water had them feeling very mean. Most fish came on divers, 150 copper, and 3 color. Divers back 75. Bloody nose took a couple, double orange crush took a couple and Mongolian beef took a couple. Just got 3 hours of sleep and I’m back at it this morning.
Was it you that said hi to me at the fish board?

Great reports fellas 🍻
I have a question and looking for little info/help/tips
Long story short I’m wanting to get out a few times in September, I have a few weekends booked at timberline campground. Not looking to fill the freezer just hoping 1 or 2 for the grill would be great and add another line or 2 . I have all the gear just no riggers mounted on my boat.
Has anyone used Jet divers, maybe 40/50 size off the back of the boat?
I have all the other stuff to put out a spread just kinda wonder if these would be worth trying or more of a big mess at the back of the boat.
I’ve used the 20s for eyes with good results but have also seen how they can get into other lines pretty quick.
Any info or feed back would be great
Thanks 🍻
All of what you have will work. The issue is gonna be if there's any fish left that time of year.
