I will be going up to michigan on the 11th and was wanting to know if that is way to early for the salmon run. The guy im going with has been there the last few years but never this early. He has always done good but later in the year. we will be fishing Pere Marquette river and the Ludington area. Also i dont that most of my rods are strong enough for these kinds of fish. Most are medium action spinning outfits except for one med. heavy baitcaster i have.
