Labor Day Great Lake Salmon Fishing
Location: Traverse City, MI 9/1-3
We made a last minute decision to head to Traverse City instead of Grand Haven after seeing the forecast for there and reports of slow fishing. This was our first time in Traverse City and it really couldn't have been any better. We had some great fishing and really enjoyed everything the area had to offer. We fished a super tight circle for staging kings in 100fow. It was chaos at times with all the boat traffic so we only ran 4 rods all weekend as long lines were not an option.
Our best bait depths were 50ft down to the bottom with our best baits being green meat rigs and white paddle/green rotator with green flies. Our day 1 weight of our 5 biggest kings was over 80lbs which would have put us in 1st place in the Am divison and 2nd in the pros on day 1 if we would have entered the tournament. Fishing was great and while we only ran 4 rods all weekend we still managed over 25 bites! We will definitely be back and might even fish the tournament next year!
