The fishing off Arcadia is looking good. One of the boats out of Arcadia finished second in the amateur division with limit catches and then some both days. He caught fish starting in 110 FOW all the way to 210 using spoons and a 250 foot copper rod. After catching lake trout and kings the bite was out to 450 FOW and the steelhead and kings filled his limit.
Almost all the professional boats fished between the barrel and the golf course in 80 to 100 feet for lake trout. Even the boats docked in Manistee motored up to catch their limit before venturing out to the break for steelhead and kings. This action was much better from Barr Lake south. So if you are after steelhead check the Manistee report
