trifecta-2-img-302417.jpg CONGRATS TEAM "DUSTINS DREAM" FOR WINNING THE TRIFECTA CHALLENGE!!    Thanks to all the boats that participated in this years Church Tackle & Tackle Haven Trifecta Challenge.  Fall Salmon run is around the corner and ready to start any day.  Good Salmon fishing can be found in closer depths of water ranging from 60 to 100 feet of water.  The best overall water depths have been 100 to 150 feet of water and fishing with spoons or meat rigs from 30 to 80 feet deep.   On a positive note, there are still good reports of Alewife's out in the lake and this will hopefully maintain the fishing out of St Joe.  We have a fresh stock of Herring Strips and they work best when used on a meat rig with a spinny or flasher.  Perch Fishing has been good with the perch being targeted anywhere from 35 to 50 feet of water depending on the day and the water temps.  The warmer water brings the perch in closer and they can be caught in the 25-35 feet range but they are mostly targeted around 40 feet of water.  South down by the Chalets or the Cook Plant has produced the best catches but anglers have caught them just North of the Piers as well.  The pier reports have been good as long as the cooler temps are around and anglers are still catching the Steelhead.  The fishermen are mostly using frozen shrimp or fresh alewife's for the Steelhead and also using casting spoons such as cleos, ko wobblers or moonshine casting spoons.  Steelhead fishing here on the St Joseph River has been ok with a few being caught and targeted up by the Berrien Springs Dam. Walleye fishing on the St Joe River was very good during May and June and anglers were mostly catching them on night crawlers.   The Third leg of the Church Tackle & Tackle Haven Trifecta Challenge will take place on Saturday August 27th.  Stop by the store to get your entry in and secure a place in the field for a chance to win $$$$$.  In the meantime, stop by our store and get your gear ready.  Summer Hours for TACKLE HAVEN are 7-DAYS A WEEK, Monday through Saturday from 7:30:00am - 7pm and SUNDAY from 7:30am - 6pm.
