Spring Brown trout…

While we are not yet on the water…I’m hearing reports from other Capts. that are now fishing the big lake…From just about everyone( Capts) is telling me the Brown trout fishing is red hot.. Manistee to Ludington and south is tops for this early spring fishing as of this report. Small spoons such as the “Mini streaks” made by Wolverine tackle and Rapala body baits have been the “go to” baits this spring. Remember to downsize your line size for shoreline Brown trout…you’ll catch more fish with a 8 to 10 lb leader off your trolling rods than running 20lb test as you would for summer salmon.Real drags must be set light as you’ll never know what size brownie that may hit your baits…

We are looking to be on the water in the 2nd week of May..after cleaning and waxing of the boat’s hull..see you on the water….Capt. Eric
