30 Pounder III fishing starts out in the cold waters of April, fishing closer to shore and with “short lines” as the fish are generally near the surface as the water temperature begins to warm up. These are good times for catching Cohos and some Browns, as well as the Lake Trout, and Steelhead.
In June and July we travel farther off shore to the deeper waters and fishing grounds for lean powerful Lake Trout and Coho as they follow baitfish and cooler water. Out in deeper water is where we find thermal bars down a little deep, or bug lines on the surface of the Lake, as the Lake Trout, Salmon and Steelhead school-up out here. There is plenty of action our here in “the deeps” and 20 fish on in a day is common.
In August, the water warms up and fish are plentiful, although lean Lake Trout are harder to find. Quality is what we’re after, as we look for nice lean Atlantic Salmon, and the beginning of a Coho Salmon run. This is great time for “catch and release” fishing.
September brings shorter days and a cool down of the waters near the famous Manistee Harbor. The fish start to come near shore again. This is a beautiful, at times breezy month, with excellent fishing days getting better as spawning begins. Coho are more plentiful again.
Come along on 30 Pounder III Charters for guaranteed memories of a lifetime. Remember, you’ will Never Go Wrong At Manistee.”
