Fishing continues to be the best we have seen over the past few years! Salmon are Huge and the numbers have been great over the past couple of weeks. Lots of Kings over 20lbs have been caught as well as huge Steelhead and Browns are being reported. Flashers and Flies and Meat Rigs are a must if you want to catch Kings. Lake Trout are abundant in the Saugatuck/Holland area. There is a shortage of Herring this year which has led to a limited supply of Familiar Bite Herring Strips. There is a limit of 3 Packs per person until we are able to get a larger inventory. Please call us at (269) 857-2248 before driving down to confirm we have inventory. Best of luck to everyone fishing the Big Red Classic this weekend!
We are Open 10am-6pm on Friday and 9am-3pm on Saturday

Sliders Continue to be great on Downrigger Lines!!
To run a Slider Use a 3' Piece of 20lb Test Line with a swivel attached to both ends. Once you set your downrigger, take the 3' Line with swivels and attach a lure to one end and attach the other end to your downrigger line. Toss the slider in the water and it will slide down to the bow in the line.
-Silver Streak Mini Streaks on a Slider have been great for Kings/Steelhead
-Moonshine Standard Size with UV Finishes have been excellent for Kings and Steelhead as well!
