Anglers Avenue hosted their annual Brown Trout tournament this weekend. Day 1 brought calm seas and great fishing for many teams. Some teams were reporting 15 plus bites on the day and a few boats logged double digit catches of browns. Spoons seem to out produce cranks for the day based on what most boats have reported. Michigan Stinger Spoons in copper and gold blanks seem to be the favorite. patterns like wonder bread, watermelon, perch and gin and tonic. The sooperfly double orange crush mini spoon was a stud as well. Guys were pulling spoons behind 1, 1.5 and 2 colors of leadcore with Offshore planer boards. 10-15 ft of water from the Pigeon River to the Golf Course seem to be the best stretch. The water was 44 degrees in that area.
