Holland May 2017
Well the Black Pearl has been back at it the month of May. At present we have been catching good numbers of coho and kings. Depths have varied but the 120-140 ft depths have held kings and coho early. After the morning bite we have been sliding out to 180-190 and generally finishing off our limit. Traxtech riggers down 40-60 ft have been very consistent with regular size Silver Streaks and Stingray size spoons. Free sliders are a must. We have been running a white paddle on the chute 90-150 down with good success. Blood Run wire divers back 150-250 on the highs and 100-200 on the lows have been taking some nicer kings. We have had good luck with Big Weenie meat rigs in Pole Dancer and Purple Haze. Spin Doctors and flies have also been decent. Offshore planers pulling 150-300 lengths of Blood Run copper have been doing damage as well.
We filmed another episode of Great Lakes Fisherman's Digest this past week which will feature some of this outstanding fishing. This will air next February so in the meantime you should book a charter to experience it first hand:)
