2011 Marquette Spring Shootout
« on: May 04, 2011, 08:15:55 AM »

Just a reminder....The SSFA Marquette Spring Shootout will be held next Saturday, May 21st, at 6a.m.   :rock:

Same rules and regs from last year with a couple small changes.  Meet at the Marquette Dock Association Parking Lot (next to Thills Fish House) on Friday the 13th from 5-9 to register and pick up your rule sheet. $25 per man.  Be sure at least 1 member from each team stops by the registration on Friday evening between 5-9p.m. to get a rule sheet and fill out an entry form.  6a.m. start time on Saturday, and your LAST ROD MUST BE OUT OF THE WATER BY 2p.m.   Dont fish until 2, have your rods OUT by 2.   Weigh in at the Dock Association Parking Lot at 3p.m.  Everyone is entered in both classes. Your biggest 3 Salmon and biggest 3 Trout will be your weight for each class. 100% Payback! Steelhead and Browns are TROUT.

For the spring derby, you can leave the marina/launch before 6a.m. and go to your fishing spot.  ON YOUR HONOR....No lines go in the water until 6a.m.  There will be an announcment on VHF channel 68 at 6a.m. to start the derby.  You can then fish until just before 2, and PULLING YOUR LAST LINE OUT BY 2P.M.  for the weigh in at 3p.m.  Fish will be weighed promptly at 3p.m. and winners will be announced shortly after that.

Hope to see many of you guys there!!  :beer:

It looks like tommorow morning is gonna be similar to this morning as far as fog...

Be careful running out tommorow morning if its like this guys!  There will be guys shutting down in many different spots so keep a extra lookout and take your time!  Remember, you can leave as eary as you need to, just cant fish until the announcement is made at 6.  On a good note....the water looks to be nice!  :rock:


Also, as far as nets go. I know of these few and mabe other people can add to the list?
-Trap net located in the usual spot off the Coast Guard Station Green can.  The shoreward bouy is about 100-125 yards off the can so you can troll between them if needed.
-Gill net located just North of the Picnic Rocks.  The seaward bouy is in about 55' of water and its run to a shoreward bouy in like 15' of water.
-Trap Net about 1 mile East of the Chocolay River in the usual spot.  Runs out to about 45' of water.
-Trap Net about 3 Miles East of the Chocolay River.  Shoreward bouy is very shallow, like probably 5-8' and the seaward bouy runs out to 35'.  The seaward bouy is VERY hard to see.  The Flags can be seen for a while, but remember there are the "ball" bouys out beyond the flags.
-I was told about a gill net placed just North of the White Rocks as well but I have not seen it myself.

With the exception of the many ghost nets that are floating just below the surface from the Ice Netting Escapades this spring  :mad:, all the nets out there right now, including the Tribal nets, are marked very well and can be seen for a good distance.  Be careful tommorow and HAVE FUN!!  :beer:
