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.

Frankfort Fishing Report 6/28/10:
King salmon are coming down deep!  We have found our fish 100 to 200 down on riggers.  Water temps have been 63 on the surface and around 50 at 100-110 down. This past weekend our best bait was the Stinger “Modified Carmel Dolphin” spoon. Most action came straight out front in 130-200 fow and north. Uncle Sam Shootout tournament this Sunday. Check out www.GTASFA.com for info.

Traverse City Fishing Report:
Mature salmon are starting to get caught on a regular basis in both bays. 400 to 600 copper rigs have worked well. Very nice size lakers as well are being caught just about anywhere.  Troll the drop-offs in 100-150 fow. Trout like a slower troll 1.5-2 mph.
Cherry festival starts this Saturday!

Frankfort fishing report: 6/1/10
Fished this past weekend out of Arcadia in the Onekama Shakedown Tournament.  Fishing was slooowww!!  Our best bites came 17-20 miles offshore.   We found some colder water (48-49 degrees) and boxed 3 steelhead, 2 lake trout and a few small kings. The inshore bite for kings was extremely tough (probably due to the 7 am start time ).  We ended up 8th place with the ladies on Friday and 7th place for the main tourney.

Traverse City East Bay fishing report: 6/2/10
Finished 2nd place in the GTASFA weekly fishing league last night.  We set up for lake trout in about 30-50 fow and picked away on them all night.  Most trout came on 3-7 colors of leadcore. All spoons. The big surprise was a that we caught a nice 11 pound king on a 3 color leadcore right at dark.  It took 2nd to a 14 pound king! Several 4 year old salmon were caught.  Hats off to GTASFA net pen stocking program (in its 4th year, by the way!) TC trout this Saturday.
