FISHING REPORTS out of ST JOSEPH & BENTON HARBOR:
CONGRATS TEAM TITAN ON winning the first of three tournaments !!! Fishing has been fairly GOOD here on Lake Michigan out of St. Joseph. Good catches of Coho, Chinook Salmon and Lake Trout have been reported and also Steelhead have been caught. Fish are scattered so boats are covering depths of water from 50 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 60-90 feet of water early in the day and then out to 120 - 250 feet of water during the afternoon hours. There are plenty of fish to be found in the deeper depths. Perch are starting to show up just outside of the piers in and around 40 to 50 feet of water. Not many have been caught but its a good sign that they are starting to appear. Pier fishing has been slow and not many fish have been reported being caught other than catfish and drum. Walleye season is now open and anglers are starting to target them here on the St Joe River. As of yet, there haven't been any good reports but as the water temps rise, so will the catching. 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.
