trifecta-2-img-302417.jpg FALL RIVER FISHING WILL BE HEATING UP SOON!    Fall Salmon run, what little there was has come and gone and now is a good time to start fishing the St Joe River for Steelhead.  On a calm day, anglers are still venturing out onto Lake Michigan to target Salmon and Lake Trout in closer depths of water ranging from 60 to 100 feet of water and fishing with mostly spoons or meat rigs from 30 to 60 feet deep.   Perch Fishing is still possible as well but the perch will start moving out to deeper depths ranging from 50 to 75 feet of water depending on the day and the water temps.  The pier reports have been slow but should start getting better as the Steelhead make their way into the river for the fall/winter months.  The fishermen are mostly using Spawn 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 the month of October and and anglers were mostly catching them on night crawlers as well as trolling baits such as Hot n Tots or Rapala Shad Raps.  Thanks to all the boats that participated in this years Church Tackle & Tackle Haven Trifecta Challenge.  In the meantime, stop by our store and get your gear ready.  FALL Hours for TACKLE HAVEN are 7-DAYS A WEEK, Monday through Saturday from 7:30am - 6pm and SUNDAY from 7:30am - 5pm.
