Manistee Fishing Reports

August 25, 2013

Fishing has been good in Manistee for the past week with Kings coming in 80-120 feet early and Kings and Coho out 200-400 feet later in the day.  Plugs and Flashers have both been effective from 40-90 down.  Copper and Divers have worked best after the sun comes up.

Fishing has improved greatly with good numbers of Coho, Steelhead, Kings and Laker Trout showing up offshore.  Most people are fishing between the 28 and 34 lines west and in the top 70 feet.  Copper lines with spoons out 100-400 feet have worked well and leadcore has taken fish.  Slide Divers and free sliders on riggers have also been effective.  Our own Capt Larry Scharich took a King over 31# yesterday to prove the big boys are back.

Reports have neen very slow this past week with cold water and scattered fish.  The one bright spot has been some decent Lake Trout fishing to the north with some big fish.  Here is one that was caught while our member Capt Bob Guenthardt was fishing on the Happy Wanderer this week.  The offical weight was 27.25  WOW what a trout.

Fishing is beginning to improve with some nice Kings coming near the point and a few straight out.  Offshore fishing has improved a bit also with some Lakers and Steelhead coming near the surface starting at the 28 line west.  North winds the next few days are sure to change the fishing once again and hopefully bring in some cool water under the warmer water.  The one common report is that there are lots of fish and lots of bait.

Sorry for the lack of reports but to be honest fishing has been very slow and there hasn't been a lot to report.  With the steady south wind we are now getting and the reports from the southern part of the lake improving along with the tournament this weekend we should have some improving fishing and good reports after the weekend.

Fishing continues to improve with some Big Kings showing up.  Several fish last week were taken near the 20# mark and the numbers are getting better all the time.  Recently the fishing has been better in 100-200 feet with the fish coming from 50-160 down.  Big flasher fly combos and meat rigs are doing well as are spoons on copper and leadcore or as free sliders on riggers.  South winds will keep bringing more fish in.
