Fishing is really starting to pick up out of Manistee, Ludington, Onekama and Frankfort.  Active kings can be found in 120 to 200 fow in most areas, however I've heard good reports from the 5's to the 9's in those depths.  Dreamweaver 8 and 10 inch Kevin's Girlfriend and UV Showtime Spin Doctors loaded with Pickled Sunshine meat rigs, Diabolical Electric Funeral meat rigs and Diabolical Black Magic meat rigs have been hot.
