bp213 the harbor water was actually blue inside the north gap then it got a bit brown south of that inside, but not like milk. Outside was clean and not much of anything floatin around anymore with the help of the wind....

Had another great day out on the water today. Fished just south of the power plant. There was a dirty water line in about 16 FOW's where the water was about 47 degrees. Found very good fishing using the 3.5 mag lip from Yakima bait company. Just using mono running them back about 80 ft and hooking them up to the boards. Very fun and easy fishing! Even found a great spring king this morning!

Came down from Sheboygan this morning for a change of scenery. We boated 12 fish and lost one. 5 Lake Trout, 1 King, the rest were Browns. All the fish hit on a variety of spoons. Our two downriggers took the most fish but the Slide Divers worked as well. Only 2 fish on boards today. Wish we couldve worked some deeper water but wind did not let us today deepest we got was 45 FOW. South gap seemed better than the others too for fish marked and hits... Photo of 12.54# King

Kyle,

Try this site: http://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/

scroll down to the second set of maps (forecast). Click on wind or waves. Will let you select number of hour into the future. Just watch out that your not on Nowcast, that one goes back in time.

Good day gents.

I am itching to get the rig out and test her on the big water. Just wanted to get some "expert" advice. With stronger winds this past week and cooler Temps, will this help or hurt the bite? also, what site does everyone use for weather/wave reports? Is it worth the drive down 0r should I just go soak her on bago ;)

Hope to see some.of you om the water. Tight lines and screaming reels

Kyle

+1

You can clip to your lead core if you need to shorten up a color or two. That shealth is strong. The board may run a bit funny but the fish don't know that.

Psssst! I have run my boards off my core many many a times as a full core works nicely as a 7 /8/9 color or less. Unless you put it in the same spot exactly every time then you might ruin your core. And I replace mine every 3 years anyhow give or take depending on condition.

Had a Great day yesterday. We fished the outside pier heads in the stained water. Inside the piers was very dirty water. We positioned the boat in 20 FOW and spread the planer boards right up next to the pier head. Water Temps we caught fish at was 47-49 degrees. The hot bait was the 3.5 Mag Lip made by Yakima Bait company. Boating over 20 fish for the day made for some exciting fast action on such a windy day. Most of the fish were Browns, there were a few cohos and a Lake trout. All were released to catch another day!

Was out with you yesterday 3boys. Wind kept us inside as well. We only found juvenile Browns and they were all caught on reef runners running those same trolling paths you were. They were all in that 19' fow in front of discovery world where the mud line set up (running across the harbor) and more importantly the water temps changed from 46 - 51 degrees. The river mouth had 54, but the water was 'too dirty'. Only caught them going with the wind, running 1.9-2.4. Was running boards but all came on our down rods 35' back right near the boat. We ran straight mono, no lead. More fish were on the graph near the rip rap but couldn't get anything to take. tried different cranks and colors as well.
