Frankfort Fishing Report 8/22/10:
“BIG” kings have been getting caught out of Frankfort this past weekend. We have been fishing shallower water (finally!). Anywhere from 50-90 fow.  Kings have been coming on riggers with plugs 50-80 down and on divers with meat rigs 123-150 out.  These three 18 pounders were caught just south of the harbor in 85 fow on Sunday. Benzy Frenzy starts Friday. Good luck to all teams!

Traverse City Fishing Report 8/22/10:

East Grand Traverse Bay- Kings are moving into the bays.  Anywhere from  90-150 fow.  Stinger magnum glow spoons in the morning have been very productive.  Also still catching unlimited amounts of nice size lake trout.  Traverse City Salmon Classic starts Friday the 3rd.

Frankfort Fishing Report 8/15/2010:

Thank you SOUTH LYON CATHOLIC CHURCH group! Teams Hawg-Tide, Netminder and Sandpiper took out a large fishing group this past weekend.  We fished in front of Arcadia Bluffs golf course. Great catches of kings were brought in by all.  We were fishing in about 100-130 fow.  Downriggers with all glow plugs seemed to be the ticket fished 70, 80 and 90 down. We were also using 2 colors of lead-core on our out-down riggers.  Meat rigs out 225 on wire divers also worked well.

Frankfort Fishing Report: 8/10/10

King Salmon fishing out of Frankfort in at its prime!! We went 19-22 last night on all nice size kings. Average size about 15 pounds. Our best depth of water was 130 foot.  We were targeting the 75 foot range.  Very good temp break at about 70.  Best baits were green/glow plugs on riggers using Stinger pancake cannonballs. Meat rigs with red teasers caught several fish.  They were fished on wire divers out 180-220. The time is now to fish Frankfort!!

Frankfort fishing report 7/27/10:

18 pound king!

18 Pound King!

Team Hawgtide fished this past weekend out of Onekama for the “Best of the Best” tournament and the Manistee “Big Boys” tournament.  Finished 7th and 10th places.  These were both “no-cull” events.  Targeting only big fish is a must!  We caught all of our fish all days but had too many small fish mixed into our catch.  Best baits for mature kings were meat rigs on divers out 200-350 feet.  Also “J-plugs” on 400-500 foot copper rigs.  Stinger 24 pound cannonball down 200 foot worked for several fish.  125 to 220 fow was the most productive location. 50 degree water was down about 90 foot.
