One of our favorite techniques is casting crankbaits for early
season Kings! During
the early Salmon season, (Late August, September) Mint
silver kings that have just arrived from the big lake absolutely
crush these Thundersticks! They just about rip the rod out
of your hand!
Later in the
season, Salmon offer great sport for the fly fisher. Salmon come
into the Muskegon, Pere Marquette and Manistee River in great
numbers and hit flies well. They fight hard and the battle on
a 9 weight fly rod or spinning tackle is absolutely amazing!
Casting Thundersticks on the Lower Pere Marquette River!
Side casting body baits such as Thundersticks and Rapala's,
is by far one of our most productive methods for the early season
Kings! These early salmon have unimaginable power once they've
entered the river!
Drifting nymphs and swinging spey flies are the preferred
techniques but, there are many different ways to fish salmon including
plugs, spawn, and spinners.
Salmon ascend the Pere Marquette and Muskegon Rivers in late
August and September through late October. These fish are by far
the largest power fish of the year. Chinook average 18 to 25
pounds but, fish over 30 pounds are not uncommon!
