trifecta-2-img-302417.jpgPerch Fishing is VERY GOOD!!!    Summer is here and the Perch are biting!  Get the perch rods ready and rig them up with perch rigs or perch fly's and stop by the shop and buy some Minnows.   Perch are being caught both North and South of the pier in depths of water from 30 - 35 feet.  Salmon Fishing has been OK out of port St. Joseph and mostly Lake Trout have been caught along with some Coho, Chinook Salmon and also Steelhead. Fish are scattered so boats are covering depths of water from 85 feet on out to 300 feet of water.  Lake Trout have been plentiful this year and the best baits for targeting them are either a flasher fly combo or a spin n glo and flasher rig.  Coho and King Salmon are mostly being caught on trolling spoons with a green/chartreuse combo being the best. Depths of water to target salmon are 120 - 200 and plenty more assortment of fish to be found out past 200 feet.   Perch are starting to show up just outside of the piers in and around 30 to 40 feet of water and as the water temps rise the fishing will improve day by day.  Pier fishing is still a bit slow and not many fish have been reported other than catfish and drum.  The summer run Steelhead should be arriving soon so now would be a good time to start targeting the piers using frozen shrimp or casting orange spoons.  Walleye season is now open and anglers are starting to target and catch them here on the St Joe River.  Best Baits of choice for the Walleye are Night Crawlers being drifted on the river bottom, Jigging minnows or trolling crank baits such as Rapala Shad Raps.   No replorts lately from Berrien Springs Dam.  Make sure to purchase your 2015 FISHING LICENSE before heading out onto the water.    In the meantime, stop by our store and get your gear ready.  TACKLE HAVEN IS OPEN 7-DAYS A WEEK from 7:00am - 6pm and open SUNDAY until 5pm.  We have all your tackle needs in stock.
