Frankfort fishing report 5/22/10.
Fished sat and sun for salmon north of Frankfort on “the bank”. We went 14 for 20 on all nice size kings. The best fishing was in about 150 to 200 fow.  Downriggers down 125 feet using the Stinger 25 lb. ball did the most damage.    We were pulling a 13 inch white Protroll flasher and a Rapture Hypnotist fly.  Divers were also good from 125 to 200 out. 400 coppers with Stinger NBK spoons went several times. Water temps were about 50 degrees.
Traverse City West Bay fishing report.
Trout fishing is heating up! We trolled in 50 fow with 6 colors of leadcore and 200 foot of copper pulling gold with orange medium size Stinger spoons. The east side by the gravel pit has been good. Water temps are now in the low 50s.

Frankfort: 5/16/10
Water temps have been very cold do to a week of east winds.  Sunday the 16th surface temps were 44-45 degrees.  Ran a trip in the morning and manage to catch just a handful of lake trout.  No salmon!  We fished the bank in 100-130 fow.  Trout were coming close to the bottom.  Standard trout program.  Cowbells and dodgers… Salmon are very close to Frankfort. The boys in Manistee have been catching salmon. This week of south winds should bring them up.

Traverse City. West Bay: 5/17/10
Lake trout in the shallows!  Trolling with short cores anywhere from 25-50 fow has been good and this will only get better.  Water temps are 45-49 degrees today. Spoons with orange and gold have worked for us.

Frankfort: still catching a mixed bag of browns, steelhead, lake trout and the occasional salmon trolling anywhere from 4 to 70 fow. Smaller spoons light the Stinger Stingray and body baits like Rapalas and Bombers have all worked.  The best spot has been the darker colored water out front of the pier heads.

Traverse city: lake trout seem to still be in deeper water (100 foot or more).  Water temps still in the 40’s.  Look forward to the shallow water trout program soon to come. Also we are seeing some real nice size lakers this year.  Should have several over the slot size weighed in at the June trout derby!
