FISHING REPORTS out of ST JOSEPH & BENTON HARBOR:
FALL & WINTER FISHING THE ST JOE AND PAW PAW RIVERS!!! The Southwest Michigan Steelheaders 26th annual Winter Challenge river tournament will be held on Saturday December 5th from 6am till 2pm. We have entry forms located here at Tackle Haven. Steelhead fishing here on the St Joseph River has been good and anglers have been hitting the river hard so far this fall. Fishing is good here at the lower end of the river as well as on up to Berrien Springs. Boats are mostly trollin and looking for the deeper holes where the steelhead will be found. Most Steelhead have been caught trolling plugs such as Hot N tots and Yakima Mag Lips 3.5 and 3.0 as well as T4 Flatfish and Kwikfish. Anglers will be resorting more towards bouncing spawn during the heavy cover of leaves since it makes it difficult to troll lures. Fishing off the St Joseph piers will be getting better as long as you can venture out on them without getting too wet from the wind and the waves. Pier fishermen are casting spoons such as cleos, ko wobblers or moonshine casting spoons as well as using spawn. No reports yet of Whitefish but they will be starting anyday now and being caught off of single salmon eggs. In the meantime, stop by our store and get your gear ready.
