If you need help getting out, and need someone there to do what you can't while healing, I'll jump at the chance to fish with you. I love your reports, even though I don't fully understand most of it. I want to learn more about possibly doing a low tech version of fishing this water out of my smaller boat, the chance to see all you write about in person would be huge and so quickly advance my new learning curve.

I live in Racine... and can be pretty flexible about timing. Good luck healing, and PM me if interested and needing some assistance.

Setup this morning in 90' out from the main gap. Had one king in the dark one a 7 color blue knight. That was all the action until sun up. Then it was a steady pace. Ended up 12-something close to 20. All rods took fish 7 and ten color Dipsy flasher fly at 200 dipsey and spoon 125 swr was at 57 and the other rigger with flasher fly stayed around 60-70. Most fish were caught in a 100 yard area in 85-86' it really pays off to waypoint bigger fish and swing back over that waypoint again and again until you wear it out.

Set up in the dark 70fow east of N Gap and no bites until enough light we didn’t need lights on the Off Shore boards. First to go a real screamer on first time in the water 150 copper rig and Brad’s spotted cow. It buried the board and just kept pulling out of sight. When the board came back into view 60’ rigger white dodger/ Brad’s Happee Meal bouncing with a shaker king. Meanwhile the 8 color Mag Blue Knight fired and we got the board off then part way back the fish fell off. A minute later 40’ rigger white dodger Brad’s Purple Frog another howler. We are still working the 150 copper fish and near the boat gets into a wire dipsy. I was able to get that undone but then into the rigger fish and after all that work 150 copper fish lost to a cut line. Before I could get the rigger fish in the net 120loc Wire Dipsy white dodger/Spotted cow rips out to over 400’. Poor guy who worked the 150 had to tackle that one but learned in the process how to handle fish bigger than bass and not get totally worn out.

With a start like that I thought we were into a great day but only 3 more bites when we moved out to 95fow with 71 surface and 55 down 60. Two kings on 200 copper Big Al Flasher chrome lazer/Brad’s Wonderbread and 150 copper with Spotted Cow, our first coho in awhile and a little over 9#. Hope more of them start showing. It was getting a little bouncy from the NNW and a ripping current from the south making fishing more of a challenge. We could see lightning to the far south and when a friend’s wife came on the radio reporting something might be coming at us we cut the day short.

The 4 chinooks were hens with eggs, 2 with and 2 without adipose fins. Interesting to see fish with an adipose fin present starting to turn color and still on our side of the lake. I hope that’s a trend that continues.

I’m not sure when I’ll get out again. Just before getting in the truck to drive home I caught my foot on the trailer tongue and awkwardly fell on my left shoulder. ER visit once home and no fractures. Ortho will look at me tomorrow regarding ligaments. Dang just when the fish were showing up again. Even the bluegills for now are safe.

Had an absolute blast this past weekend with my good friend on his 27' Grady White. His girlfriend and I double up to land this brute Saturday night in the high seas (4-6 footers). 85FOW 67degrees rigger 50 feet down with a purple spoon. Got the smaller king on the same setup but with a flasher fly only minutes before the big guy. Went 2-3

HUGE thank you to Princecraft01 who was generous enough to take me out with him this morning. It was my first time out on the lake and I learned so much. Unfortunately I was not much luck to him, but it was so wonderful to be out on the water and he is an excellent teacher. Thanks a million Tim and tight lines to all!

Thanks for bringing those back! I have had great success with the Blue Knight blue glows.

I actually just emailed Warrior Lures and they sold them to me directly ( 2 reg and 2 mags).

Tight lines!

The Blue Knight blue glow 'knock-offs" you are seeing are the result of a joint venture by myself and Musky IL. We received the first custom order of over 400 spoons last December from Warrior Lures. Roger @ R&R got some of the first order and quickly sold out. He ordered more and I think he is still carrying them. Warrior lures was producing only green glow spoons and ordered blue glow blanks for our custom order. Mike Steffes @ Warrior lures has told me he will take any custom orders, no number limits. You can get the spoons through him in blue or green glow.

The last week and a half is starting to make up a little for the tougher season. With most trips coming in with mid to upper double digit catches,Topped off with a 4 man limit this morning in just 3 hours. Our summer spread is in it's prime with flasher fly on everything. Dipsys out 150-240, riggers from 60 to the bottom in 80-120fow. White flasher and bullfrog fly seems to be the dominant combo. I'm only running 1 board on each side. 300 coppers with moonshine uv spoons. They have not been that stellar tho. Most of the work on riggers and dipsys. Seems to be a good number of "our" returning kings that are beginning to stage. Should continue to be decent for awhile.....I hope. Good luck and see you on the water.

Gill crusher- I do not own any of the "originals" that glow green either. All my blue knights are the blue glow version,and to be honest, I thought that's what probably makes it so good. Almost all my other glow spoons are a green glow of some type, so I figured that to be the separating quality of it. Because of that, I have searched out other blue glow lures this year and found most of them to be out producing green glows as well. Original or copy cat, I could really care less. All I care is that it catches fish, and catch fish it does!

I have some of the Blue Knights which actually do have a blue glow. Anyone out there have any preference of blue glow vs green glow?

I realize that they both work, but I seem to have better results with my lures that have a blue glow.

Anybody else have a personal preference?
