Thank you Lois, Bob, Steve and Genevieve for fishing with us today! We fished south of Ludington and worked 65 to 115 fow. The big kings got the best of us with one wrapping around the rigger before breaking off, one hanging the hooks in the net and another breaking the leader just short of being netted ... errrr! With that we did manage 6 nice silver fish into the box out of 14 bites. Fish came on: Downrigger at 50 with dream weaver super slim w onder bread spoon on main and one stacked 10 feet above, low diver out 180 with 10 inch yellow NBK spindoctor / uv ice meat rig, high diver out 215 with 8 inch blue bubble spindoctor / custom blue super slim spoon, Downrigger 115 with 8 inch chrome spindoctor / blueberry Whirlygig, Downrigger 70 with green ladderback plug, low diver 185 with 10 inch uv slick spindoctor / green moo moo meatrig, high diver 180 with 8 inch green paddle / blue Howie fly , 300 copper with yellow splatter back plug and 100 copper with lucky charm plug.

Fishing report for August 2nd
Thank you Jennifer, Mike, Jon and Alex for joining us. The fish were not cooperative with us today. We started in PM Lake and immediately had a rip on 3 colors leadcore with Wonderbread plug. Shortly after we took a nice king on a 4 color leadcore with mixed veggie Captain choice plug, several rounds later we toiled with a nice one on a high diver out 65 with uv white slick 10 inch spindoctor / green moo moo meatrig. The bite shut down do we ra n to the 00s and set up in 100 fow. After trolling for a couple hours with no bites we pulled and ran south to 200 fow. We hit a nice steelhead on a three color leadcore / green jeans moonshine spoon and he spit the hook after a run and 3 jumps, circling back we hit another fish on 350 copper with 8 inch Dreamweaver Spindoctor dragon slayer / green mile meatrig. .. that one twisted off also.
