June 2018 Fishing Report

Manistee 06-26-18

Fishing is still on the slow side, but still mature kings to be found.  Best bite has been 100-120 fow straight out of port.  Spoons still dominate, but bigger fish have been coming on meat and fly rigs dressed up in purples and greens.  The trout grounds outside Onekama are setting up well and steady catches are being taken.  80-90 fow with chrome and chrome/green eight inch Dreamweaver Spin Doctors with blue, fire-tiger or green whirly gigs and/or spin and glows are doing well on lows and highs and riggers.  This steady north wind has also brought fish in near the harbor.  We were able to land two nice brown trout in that area on Sunday on spoons behind three color cores.

Although fishing has slowed some this is not unusual for the month of June.  We still expect big things (literally) in the coming months so don’t be discouraged.  As always tight lines and be safe.
