Manistique Fishing Reports?
« on: July 01, 2017, 05:17:53 PM »

Hello Members, hoping for a recent reports for Manistique.

Traveled up there from my home port of Manistee in the lower.
Had great success and learned how to use my 4.65 Salmon Buster spoons that hit the mark
the fish wanted at 2.6 to 3.0 mph troll speed.

Well, it's July and thinking of taking a few days off to fish this port again.
Any and all help will be much appreciated!  So, thanks in advance.

Hardest reports are the ones that no fish were caught.  But these are the most enlightening too,
by informing members of an area that was dead by the person writing the report.

So, here goes:

Fished out of Manistique on Wednesday morning on 7/19/17 for a little over 3 hours.
Headed towards the red can where I did very well at this time last year.  Massive schools of
bait in 2016 were not there, or any suspended marks that look like salmon to me.

Temp was 58 at 55' down.  No big deal there, last year all the Kings we caught were in 58 to 60 degrees.

Moral of the story is you can't catch what's not there.  Hope there's a quick turnaround for those anglers
who frequent this port.

Know I can catch 'em if they're under my boat as this photo from Manistique last year proves.

Worthy to note, this trip was on the same day in 2016, proving what a difference a year makes.
