1. We couldn't get out past the fog for mahi but we had all the bonito and spanish mackerel we could want. Pretty good fight when they'd hit the lighter gear ...more like this one!

  2. The plan was to fish for mahi but the fog just wouldn't let up and made a long fast run pretty dangerous so we stayed inshore and fished for spanish mackerel ...more and bonita. we did end up nabbing one micro mahi too though haha. Not the biggest of fish, but fun when they would hit the lighter setups.

    6. JC this is the first time i've ever fished lake michigan so idk if this will help, but we caught all our fish trolling north, near the point just north of millwaukee, ...more wi. fish were 50-65ft depth water suspended on bottom half and were hitting various large spoons. we didn't get any significant fish in deeper water or while trolling southward.
