Fall fishing in Munising are is absolutely breath taking and especially after the fall colors have arrived. Anglers were trolling between the Anna River and Sand Point and majority of the fish were splake. Water temperatures were still in the low 50’s. Anglers targeting that thermocline and fish that were suspended had little luck. Shore anglers fishing Bay Furnace had much better luck and caught coho, splake and steelhead right at first light when using spawn. Pier anglers at the Anna River caught coho, steelhead, and splake.
The best baits for trolling these areas were spoons and body baits when trolling at about 2.3-2.5 MPH. Leadcores and flat lines did the most damage behind offshore planner boards. The best depths were anywhere from 15-50 feet of water. Those using spawn had the best luck with pink,blue, orange, and chartreuse bags. Some shore anglers were casting blue/silver and orange/silver spoons and caught a good number of cohos and splake.
