Tip For Night Fishing For Salmon on Lake Michigan

With fall almost upon us it’s time to start thinking Kings & Coho Salmon close to the shore and in the harbors of Lake Michigan,, One of my favorite & most productive techniques is to Night Fish using Ivory or Fire tiger Rat L Traps painted with good quality Glow In The Dark Paint. I prefer to use Ultra Green V10 Glow in the Dark Paint on any of my lures, spoons & ice jigs that I use.

Fishing from shore my presentation will vary, after casting count down the lure about 10 seconds and start the retrieve, generally I will use a slow steady retrieve with a light jerk every few cranks, at times a fast retrieve, stop, hard jerk works too..

When fishing from the boat, the same retrieves as shore fishing work great, But my favorite & deadliest tactic is jigging the traps, fast quick snaps up and let the lure flutter back down, You can really cover a lot of the water column  this way!..
