7/20/18 Good luck to all
the weekend warriors. Saturday is going to be
touch and go with thunderstorms predicted. 2'
to 3' seas look to be tolerable except for fast
moving storms coming across Lk. MI. Staying
close to port is a good idea tomorrow.
As Manistee, MI welcomes the summer Salmon fleet,
please note at the 1st launch the city has a chart
down by the ramps with commercial trap net
locations. Did not verify the info, so beware

7/19/18 Had the great
pleasure to fish with Wayne J and Todd B last
evening out of the Port of Manistee, MI for a few
hours. Fished pretty much straight out in 125'
to 225' of water. Just didn't mark that many
fish in this area. Marked a few pods of bait.
Did see one boat when we came in with 6, or 7 fish
that included 2 decent adult Kings. So, there
are fish to be caught if you hit the right area.
We ended up with one small Steelhead and a good time
on flat, calm seas. There were no fish in the
harbor last night.
7/18/18 Explaining the the mechanics of our meat heads today
that begins with the all important toothpick.
Keep it simple stupid (KISS) works for me.
Said pick works to hold the bait inside the head,
Click toothpick & meat head
Mechanically pegging the toothpick in the rear of
the head to 2 purposes.
1. To hold tension on how far back you want to the
hook to be from the head.
2. Plus, it's a jettison device to free up the head
when a fish eats your bait sliding up the
leader/line. This means your foe cannot use
the head against you and pry out the hook.
Best part of the pick in the rear hole? You
can tune bend in the fillet/strip/whole bait to
control the rate of spin, adjusted to your trolling
7/17/18 Let's leadoff
today with Zack's 31.7 King Salmon caught this past
Saturday morning while fishing with his dad, Mike K.
Mike shared the fish take was 2 to 4 fish a boat
with some doing better numbers targeting Lake Trout.
He also mention he marked a lot of bait, most he's
seen in a long time.

7/16/18 Mid-July and
King fishing is beginning to perk up. Today's
chat exposes the myth of hooks supposed to be sharp
out of the package, or box. This is total BS.
Hooks are packed tightly in 1000 counts. Every
bump, or jar these hooks take during travel?
Common sense says the fact of rubbing together is
going to knock off some of the point.
Hook files were invented for a reason to put the
finishing touch on a hook. So, use them.
Reason behind hooks 101 today? King Salmon as
they mature their skin turns into leather. In
fact, billfolds are being made from Salmon hide.
That's why it's important to make the most of your
opportunities and not miss bites!
