Harbor Beach Fishing Report
August 29, 2016
Some nice Lake Trout are being taken in the 80-130 foot of water areas using Dodgers with Spin and Glows close to the bottom. Clean spoons off the downriggers fishing 60-100 feet down have been working as well. Best colors have been the blue alewives, green, and purple colors.
A few Pink, Coho, King, and Atlantic Salmon have been taken out in 80 to 135 foot of water areas on clean spoons run down 15 to 80 feet. Try running some clean spoons on the Offshore Boards as well, 5,7, and 10 colored leads should work. You might want to start running some J-Plugs as well, it is that time of year.
Some nice Steelhead were being taken near the color lines out in 75 to 100 foot of water areas on bright colored spoons off the boards and off the dipsey divers out 160 feet with clean spoons.
A few Walleye were taken on small spoons, thunder sticks, and crawler harnesses working the 70 to 120 foot areas.
Some nice Bass were being taken in close to shore casting small body baits and spinners.
Please use care when fishing, and keep an eye on the weather and wind. It can pick up quickly and the waves can grow fast.
Keep those lines tight,
