Fall Salmon Summary, Jig Patterns and Bead Colors

I had a 3 day weekend with family on the far northeastern coast of Michigan.  I tried the Thunder Bay River Dam, the Charlevoy Dam and the AuSable River Mouth Pier.

I fished three half days trying 6 spots with only one fair hooked king salmon landed.  It took a Glo-Pink headed 1/32 ounce size 6 jig tied with olive marabou tail with rubber legs embedded in a dubbed thorax.  In past seasons, I got some steelhead and a couple of Cohos on this pattern, it has a history of taking one fish after I have been futilely pounding the water with my go to jig patterns.  I got a steelhead on this a few weeks ago.  That day, I also got a King on a Opal Big Hole Demon pattern jig.  Earlier this fall at Tippy Dam, using a 10mm Pink Glow Bead I got a small King an lost more that seemed to be fair hooked.  I also fair hooked a king on a 1/32 ounce #6 Nuke Minnow jig.  Last season I landed 2 king salmon that hit this Jig.  The Nuke Minnow Jig has been very good on fall and winter steelhead.
