trifecta-2-img-302417.jpgHAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!!  If I was to give the fishing this season a grade it would receive a B+.   The fishing has actually been better than expected during the month of May.  The only criteria that would be lacking and keeping it from getting an A would be the slow and minimal catch rate of King Salmon.   Otherwise there have been plenty of fish to catch out in the lake, however most of the good catches have been in 150-300 feet of water.  Coho, Steelhead and Lake Trout have been taken out in the deeper depths with a few Kings being caught in the range of 80-120 feet of water.  The best baits of choice have been trolling spoons ranging in color from Green & Orange to Blue and Chartreuse.  Productive as well have been flashers and flies or a spin n glo fly combo.   River fishing on the St Joe has been very good for Walleye and they have been mostly caught with night crawlers.   They can be caught here on the lower stretches from the Napier bridge on up past the 94 bridge.  A few Walleye have been caught off the pier as well but usually in the evening hours.  There have also been a few Steelhead caught off the pier as well of reports of an occasional King Salmon but pier fishermen are mostly catching Drum and Catfish.   Reports of Steelhead fishing has been slow up near the Berrien Springs Dam.   The Church Tackle and Tackle Haven Trifecta Challenge dates for 2017 are May 27th, June 24th and August 26th.
