Fishing report by Capt Ed Stowe of Stowawaycharters at Ludington, Michigan for 6/2/17.

The Lake Trout have slowed down but the salmon are still here and very fiesty.  We are taking them from the 5100s up to the 0800s.  It is an early bite and then a pick after that.  Moonshines are the best baits early and then meat on the divers seem to work better for me.  Orange spoons are working and Blue seems to be the color on the divers.  Blue bubble with a blue bubble fly and a blue moo with a mountain dew spinnie.

At the pierheads there is a lot of bait and a few fish are being taken there.     Good Fishin………..Capt Ed
