No matter where you're at on the Great Lakes, I'm sure
you've heard about Ludington, MI and Big Point Sable.
Today's photo is a GPS plotter screen showing the
structure/sharp drop-off to about 200 feet of water

5/16/13 Looking for the
silver lining to slow start of Lk. MI spring King
Salmon? This year's population of spring Kings has

there should more fish should be available as this
One reason for the slow start on the waters of my home
port, Manistee, MI begins with a temp map lacking
defined surface temperature breaks. Sharp 10-12
degree vertical thermobars act like structure herding Trout,
Salmon, & bait.

Fall 2012 did not offer the easy no brainer catching
like October 2011 did. Suspect the fish moved
offshore, or towards deeper waters 300' to 500' down.
