Holland Charter Fishing remains VERY good during the first two weeks of August. We have been presented with every possible weather conditions that could have been thrown at us during these first two weeks of August. Some days have been absolutely incredible with catches of 10 plus salmon and limits of lake trout included, while other days have been catches of 5-10 fish total. We are seeing more and more salmon show up. Catches have ranged from 2-10 salmon per trip. Lake trout fishing continues to be very good. We’ve seen catches of Lake Trout from 5-18 per trip. We hope as August continues we can see some consistent weather! Once the weather stabilizes we can plan on seeing some great catches of salmon, and trout! August and September are GREAT times to be fishing Lake Michigan
This is also the time of year we’re seeing larger fish show up. August 15th produced our largest fish of the year, being a Lake Trout weighing close to 25lbs!!! Earlier in the week, our largest salmon of the year came to the net, weighing 21 pounds!
We have been consistently fishing 80-100 feet of water. Our best salmon baits have been HAND DOWN Big weenie meat rigs. Our go to baits are, The No Fish Nick meat rig pair with white/slick spin doctors. The Chrome/blue dot combo. Spotted Dick Combo, JJ’s Boyfriend Combo, and the Thruster Buster Meat rig. These have out produced every salmon bait we have on the boat.
Ace high J-plugs are also producing fish on 100-150-200-225 and 250 feet of Morgan’s Copper. Green Splatter, and Blue splatter have been our two best.
Our lake trout are still coming on Yakima Bait spin n glos on the bottom. We have also been taking more and more suspended lake trout on Big Weenie flies and meat rigs as well.
