The Ludington area has a lot going on right now but the best bite is for bluegill right now.Bluegill fishing was been very consistent in the upper lake section with limits of fish per trip when floating leaf worms in 6 to 10 feet. You can fish these blue gill using fixed or slip bobber but I would recommend a slip bobber. Bass fishing has slowed which many believe is due to the large algae bloom on in the lake. Water temperatures were 62 degrees. Using spinners on upper Hamlin Lake has produced the most bass along with the occasional northern pike.
If you're looking to get on Lake Michigan for Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lake trout, and steelhead were taken 60 to 100 feet down in waters 200 feet to 350 feet when trolling spoons, flies and meat rigs. The best bite has been on dreamweaver spoons and KRW flies with a 8" dreamweaver spin doctor in front of it. Surface water temperatures were up near 60 degrees and will most likely continue to drop with Fall temperatures. After these big winds fishing didn't change much surprisingly and these fish should just continue to get closer and closer to shore as the temperature in the lake drops.
