Manistee Fishing Reports

July 21, 2011

Inshore Fishing is starting to pick up as Lake Michigan is in the process of turning over. That means the King Salmon are moving in with a 27 1/2 pound king caught on Tuesday in 80 feet of water. Regular size spoons in Blue & Green and mixed vegetable color have worked well from 7:30am on with Glows working well the first couple hours . Fish were from 35-100 feet deep with medium spoons on Copper and Lead doing the trick. Some boats came in with 15-20 fish, Kings & Steelies ranging from 6-21 pounds.

Fishing has been very good on full day charters from 12-20 miles out down 8-50 feet. All  colors seemed to work on regular size spoons and the fish box has been a mixture of Steelhead to 8 pounds, Lake Trout to 6 pounds, Coho to 6 pounds and an occasional King to 17 pounds.

Fishing was slow this weekend but the good news is that fish are starting to show up on the shelf and there was even a 24.5# fish taken during the Tight Lines for Troops event.  Fishing should continue to improve as water warms but currently fish are coming mostly in the top 40 feet with spoons.  Some fish were being taken deep up to 175 down on flashers.  Try fishing straight out in 200-350 feet of water.

Fishing was very good today with several catches in double digits and a few limit catches of Lake Trout mixed with good numbers of Kings and Browns.  Fish came from the harbor and south along the shore in 10-25 feet of water and are hitting both spoons and plugs.  Fish size was also good with Lake Trout into the low teens and Kings into the mid teens.
