Fishing today was a little more work with 10 bites and 6 fish boated. We fished north again and suspect that the warmer water combined with heavier boat traffic slowed the bite. Fish bit on 250 and 400 copper with Kevin's girlfriend and uv green ice meatrig rig and nbk spindoctor with yellow uv meat rig. Wire divers 145 and 150 for lows with green sparkler/uv yellow ice meatrig and showtime with blue moo moo meatrig. Stimulus flasher/moo moo meat rig. RodMaster Fishing Charters 517.712.8709

Congratulations to all Ludington offshore tournament winners! Fishing this past week has been interesting to say the least with storms, fog, and inconsistent bite. Monday appears to be a turning point. We went north to fish near Big Point Sable in deep water and hit fish with our 5th rod in a high wire diver out 140 ft with Kevin's girlfriend's spindoctor and green uv meatrig. That rig went numerous times. High diver out 160 with tincan and squid, 250 copper, 200 copper, 300 copper with green sparkler, yellow sparkler and uv ice meatrig, Kevin's girlfriend with blue moo moo meatrig. Lead core 2 color with goldstarburst spoon and riggers at 75 with 10 in netminder spindoctor and blue moo moo meat rig were productive. We also took fish on a modified uv spindoctor with big weenie blue uv spot meat rig. Our low divers never took a hit.
We have a few spots open for a fun fishing time...give us a call at 517.712.8709 and schedule your trip with RodMaster Charters.

Fishing was slow for most today. We started north on the bank. Within the first half hour we had a large king hit a blue spin doctor with aqua blue fly. After a lengthy fight he managed to twist the hook out. Boat traffic picked up and we speculate with clear cold water the fish scattered. Later we picked up a nice steelhead on the same high diver combo out 70 ft. Long run to the 17 line we picked at 7 more Lakers and steelhead. Flat lines 1 color 2 color with custom orange spoon, git r done, Starburst and UV beefeater on rigger down 30 were producers. Good fishing to ya!

Once again John, Kevin, Bob and Nick presented their catching skills of 100% for day two. Unfortunately it was a lock jaw morning and we only had 2 bites .. putting both into the cooler. They came on Downrigger down 76 with ghost plug and high diver out 90 with dreamweaver 10 inch black slick spindoctor / pickled sunshine fly. We trolled south and for more than 4 miles marked big fish after fish mixed with bait . Turning around we trolled back 6 miles marking bait pile after bait pile.
