Multiple 20 pound salmon in Saugatuck
<p>This past week was a very good week of fishing. Early in the week the catch consisted of 80% lake trout and 20% silver fish and by the end of the weekend we were taking 90% salmon and 10% lake trout. In addition we were taking multiple 20+pound salmon almost ever trip. The best depth continues to be 70 to 115 foot of water, however there were some boats taking salmon out in 180 to 200 foot of water.
The methods that take the fish change from day to day as the conditions and current change, however the lures and flashers remained the same. Early in the day we were catching salmon on 150, 200 and some time on 100 foot copper with Area 51, ET, Orange Corey and glow back Mixed Veggie Stingray. The downriggers produced at 40 ft. to 70 foot down with Glow frog, white UV glow and Davie Jones glow E chip flashers and Rapture no see um green beaded and green hypnotist flies. The most consistent method continues to be the dipsy divers at 180 foot and 100 ft. with E chip flashers (Davie Jones, green side UV, silver mountain dew and green UV) with either Rapture wild fern and no see um yellow beaded flies.
