Manistee Fishing Reports

August 18, 2011

Fish Manistee

Manistee fishing is going strong, big catches coming in.  We fished the bank 50 to 170 feet of water. The temp. break was at 25' to 45' down on the bank.  The fish were hitting the glow spoon in the early bite and switched to mag spoon later.  An assortment of glows and colors. The photo shows the size and quality of this mixed bag catch.  We have MAC Captains waiting to take you to these fishing dreams.  Good Luck The Capt.

Cold water was close to shore, 48 degree surface, and so were the fish both to the north, to the south and in the Harbor. The fish hit a mixture of magnum glow spoons and plugs from 2-20 feet down in 15-40 feet of water in an assortment of colors. The fish this week remain large with lots of 20-28 pound fish being brought in. It may just be that the fish are a couple weeks late and the next 4 weeks might be great. Call one of our Mac captains and become part of the excitement now happening out of Manistee.

Fishing has been very slow although the fish caught are large to 24 pounds on the inside with most fish being caught outside from the 29-41 line west and from the 10-19 line north. Sister Sledge, Mixed Vegetables, Green Hornet and Ludington Mellon were some of the top producer spoons in Medium and Magnum. The fish were a mixed bag of Steelies, Lake Trout and Salmon. 5, 6, 9&10 color leads worked on the Steelies with 50-80 foot downriggers working on the Salmon

Fish are large but hard to catch the last couple days. Thermo cline is 55-70 down. The fish are from the 13s- 18s over 100-230fow.   It looks like July, for the third year in a row will have been a very good fishing month and great weather. There are still days available. Call a MAC captain and enjoy the wonderful memories you will share with friends and family.
