Fishing remains great in Frankfort been catching lots of fish.  There is alot of fish around the harbor but they are pretty dark.  The best fishing seems to be in deeper water from 150-250 on riggers and 400-500 on divers.  Today they had moved up a little bit but still deep.  Plugs and meat is all I have been running and it's working very well.  They are calling for 30 mph south winds the next couple days so we will have to wait and see what happens.  Still looks like some good fishing remains.

The fishing continues to be good in any direction.  Any color splatter back plugs continue to rule along with meat rigs.  Looks like some wind for the next couple days but we should be able to fish with the right crew.  The bay is starting to fill up with kings and they should push up the river very soon.

The last couple days the fishing has been really good.  The big kings were in close early and late biting mostly plugs and meat.  I have been fishing deeper water late morning and early evening with lots of smaller steelhead and coho biting shallow on small orange and green spoons.  This time of year the fishing is different each day with the wind constantly changing direction.

The fishing has been pretty good the last few days.  The mornings have been better than the afternoons.  The bigger fish are near shore and the coho and steelhead are out deep 200-600 fow.  The top 50 feet has produced all the fish with water surface being in the mid 50's.  Spoons have been the ticket out deep and plugs and meatrigs for kings in closer.  Suppose to get a another big wind on friday so things will probably change again.

Fishing has been slower the last couple days with the north winds.  Tomorrow it's suppose to blow 30 mph out of the north.  This will flip the lake and make fishing tougher for a few days.  I would expect alot of fish to move into the harbor.  Lets just say it's going to be interesting the next couple days once things stabilize the fishing should be good, just not sure where that will be.  We will have to look around and find them.

Well it looks like some strong winds the next couple days.  Fishing has stayed consistent it has slowed compared to June and July but this is how August usually is.  Been fishing north of point betsie lately and finding active fish.  Divers out 180-300 have been the best with 300-450 coppers and anything else in the 90-130 ft range.  Plugs have been good early and late with green and blue splatter backs being the best.  A moonshine half loaf has been on fire I have been running 3 or 4 of them and the salmon are really liking them.  The number of fish in the boat has really been different if they stay on you will catch 20 if they are light biting or coming off then 10 seems to be a fair number.  They are really deep right now but that should all change by Monday.
