Boy, looks super crowded out there too. Where else could he have gone?

What a prick.... 100% unnecessary!!!


Thanks for getting the plug on my 10 color flat-out View attachment 849649
Awesome, tnks for the info
Tons of fish porpoising in Betsie Harbor but I didn’t see a single fish caught jigging tonight
2-5. Both coho. One on free slider orange easter egg rigger down 53. One on carbon 14 off the ball at 53. Swing and miss on dipsy and rigger. Then lost a big king on a dipsy back 70 (been meaning to replace that hook for a while..) Worked 80-90 fow. All happened at once and hardly had lines in so my rider suggested leave early. Marked piles of what I assume coho around 30/40 down.
We ended 5 for 6 tonight. Couple on plugs, one on meat, and 2 on flasher fly.

Yeah, he had all the room in the world to turn out. Pushed me from 100fow to 75

Well I finally get to contribute to the reports. Headed up Friday after work meeting up with two friends. Heard a report that the temp was around 45-50 down and ran with it. On the water at 4:30 Saturday morning and probably should not have been out there in my boat in those conditions. Idled out to 80 FOW and set the riggers only with a green ladder back plug at 45 and mag moonshine bloody nose at 50 down going south to north with the waves. First fish hit at 6:30 and was my first king EVER, weighed at 21 pounds. Second fish came on a mag braid dipsy out 120 on a 2 setting regular moonshine green jeans (hot spoon for the weekend). Headed in around 10. 2/2 that morning.
Saturday afternoon was out at 6:30 and ran a all-green program. Shaker on a 7 color green jeans at 8:30 in 120 FOW. At 9, mag braid dipsy exploded and game on. Thirty minutes later got it in, 27 pounds on the scale at the cleaning station. Kevin's GF and a random green fly back 120 on a 2 setting. Huge thank you to the boats that got out of the way!!!!
Sunday morning, heard thermocline was a little deeper around 60-65. First fish on green jeans down 60 on the rigger. Second popped off and wasn't small, same plug down 50. Shaker steelhead on Kevin's gf/green fly. Lost something big on a 5 color green jeans that popped my planer board of the line. Thank you to the guy in the white center counsel that grabbed it for me!! Overall great weekend going 6/8 and huge thank you to all of the reports in this group!

Great shot on the nighttime pic. That fish looks to be 40lbs.
