trifecta-2-img-302417.jpgSPRING IS HERE AND SO ARE THE SPRING KINGS!!!    Fishing has been VERY Good out of St Joseph the past 10 days.  The Spring Kings have shown up and the fishermen have been bringing in some nice mixed bags of fish.  Boats have been productive with the Kings the past week trolling the intermediate depths ranging from 40-60 feet of water.  Most fish have been caught on body or crank baits but spoons are becoming more productive as we move into the latter part of April.  Fishing has been good up close but the deeper depths ranging from 150-250 feet of water have been much more productive with filling the boxes.  Anglers still are targeting the piers for Steelhead, Coho and Brown Trout as well as trolling along the shoreline.   All reports have been a bit slow but the Pier fishermen are persistant and still casting spoons such as cleos, ko wobblers or moonshine casting spoons as well as using spawn and night crawlers with the live bait being the bait of choice.   Steelhead fishing here on the St Joseph River has been good and anglers have been targeting Steelhead up by the Berrien Springs Dam.   Boats are mostly trolling 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.  In the meantime, stop by our store and get your gear ready.  Spring Hours for TACKLE HAVEN are 7-DAYS A WEEK, Monday through Saturday from 7:30:00am - 6pm and SUNDAY from 8am - 5pm.
