Lake trout are biting

Sunday…we had a morning charter to do and after hearing reports from other Capts. ….that the Lake trout and Browns were still active in west Platte Bay,we motored up that way to fish. Bite started slow but as the sun came up and warmed the waters ,the fish turned on…Some real nice lakers were caught and a nice Brown about 5 lbs…The adult passengers let the kids do the catching…as this trip was a family reunion outing..Stinger spoons in Orange and Orange crush colors off 3 color lead lines with Church boards took most of the fish….We worked the 30 to 50 ft water depths…riggers were set at 18 to 25ft range.
Here’s a photo….showing our entrance sign at Betsie Bay Marina at Frankfort/Elberta …
