trifecta-2-img-302417.jpg2017 TOURNEY DATES ARE SET!!!  Spring COHO are still Biting!  Spring Coho's are still being targeted out in the lake, however they have moved out a little deeper in depths ranging from 80' on out to 250' of water.  After the wicked wind storm we had the first week of April, the Coho pretty much scattered.  They can still be caught but not many anglers have been successful targeting them in close.  The lake should be calming down and there still are Brown Trout to be caught in the shallow depths along with an occasional Steelhead.     River fishing on the St Joe has been slow due to the high and dirty water that is currently flowing out to the lake.  Reports of Steelhead fishing has been slow up near the Berrien Springs Dam.   Pier fishing our of St Joseph has been somewhat slow with not many Coho or Whitefish being caught.  There have been reports of numerous Catfish caught off the pier these past few days.  An occasional Brown Trout or Steelhead can be harvested as well in the shallow depths of water both off the pier and in the lake.  Walleye fishing on the St Joe River is now closed as of March 15th and will open back up April 30th.  The Church Tackle and Tackle Haven Trifecta Challenge dates for 2017 are May 27th, June 24th and August 26th. In the meantime, stop by our store and get your gear ready for Spring .  Hours for TACKLE HAVEN are 7-DAYS A WEEK, Monday through Saturday from 7:30am - 6:30pm and SUNDAY from 7:30am - 5pm.  2017 FISHING LICENSES ARE NOW AVAILABLE
