caught as far S as the Port of St. Joe. This is the year of the big Kings.

Going to take this afternoon off and try out some
ideas that have been in the thought stage for a
very-very long time.
The plan is there. Now, to put it in action.
Sure, failure could be a part of this. But
nothing ventured? ...nothing gained!
8/15/17 Today's featured
photo is from our Pacific Ocean's NW coast.
This huge King was caught about 20 miles N of the
famed Columbia River that borders the states of
Oregon and Washington. It came on Super Mag
Black Ice Meat Head.

While I'm on the subject of big Kings, there was a
41 pounder caught off Muskegon, MI and more 30s
taken off the Port of Ludington, MI. I have no
doubt there's been a few 30 some pounders out of
Manistee, MI that I've yet to confirm.
As not to paint too rosy of Manistee's King fishery,
there were blank spots that held no, or not many
fish this past Sunday after the N wind. Seems
N was better than S.
8/14/17 Port of Arcadia,
MI looked like place to be yesterday morning.
Here's a hand-on report from resident charter
skipper, Capt. Steve B:
"17 boats out here this morning john.
All but 1 boat caught between 2 and 5 Kings.
One fish went 32 lb and another went 30.2 lb and
most fish were in the 18 to 25lb range.
update is the big kings have arrived and are much
bigger this year than the last several year
averages. Both meat and spoons seemed to be working
on these fish that were 100ft down in 150'."

8/13/17 Have a great
Sunday. Go fishing and enjoy yourself!
8/12/17 Lk. MI showing it's
very best behavior beginning tomorrow:
Saturday NNW wind 15 to 20 kt. Mostly sunny.
Waves 4 to 6 ft.
Saturday Night Variable winds 5 kt or less.
Mostly clear. Waves 1 to 2 ft.
Sunday Variable winds 5 kt or less. Sunny.

sunny. Waves around 1 ft.
Tuesday Variable winds 5 kt or less. Sunny.
Waves around 1 ft.
Wednesday S wind around 10 kt.
Mostly sunny. Waves 1 to 2 ft.
8/11/17 Lk. MI is having
another big temp swing where the thermocline is
going to be down around 100' from SW winds to 30
knots last night. Wind is supposed to calm
down, making today tolerable for fleet to get
another day in search of Mr. King Salmon.
By tomorrow N wind to 20 knots will bring in colder
water. How much remains to be seen as we
contend with a down temp yoyo that has nothing to do
All the reports I've heard from Big Point Sable to
Frankfort, MI is saying pretty decent King fishing
for the most part. This is great news for all!
