Deep water fish

Filed under: Fishing Reports

Left the browns alone today. They are being pr%&*s because of the strange weather. The wind has been blowing out of a different direction every day. The entire south eastern end of the lake has filled with warm water and the temp is pretty much the same from top to bottom. 62 degrees on the surface and 58 degrees down 135. Today we decided to just go deep and take our chances. We started 10+ miles WNW of the Salmon River in 300 fow in an attempt to find some silver fish. We marked almost nothing but, as often happens while trolling fast over deep water, you don’t have to necessarily see them to catch them. We fished a simple program of Michigans off riggers and wire divers. Blue DieHard, Tux, Habenaro and Chicken Wing all worked. We landed some fish, but no big numbers. I think that if we could have located some bait, we might have done really well with them. The fish we got were all random. We were looking for them, and they were looking for food. The riggers were down 62 – 92 ft., and the divers were out 220 and 240.
