To the guy on the end of the pier you can not block navigable waters from the dock with fishing line or anything else. I believe your referring to the no wake law with the 100 ft law no need to thank me for clearing that up for you

Luckylou,

I replied back. Thanks for explaining things. I get it now. Just part of the circus we call fishing the gaps!

Lake Mills,

Main lake sucks for kings right now. You can hit the green can for lakers with browns mixed in. If you want silver fish you have to combat fish in the gaps.

Have fun with that though. Sounds like everyone's having a blast and getting along well together in there.

Hello All, Is the trolling fishing for salmon still any good? I've made the long drive to the big pond several times this summer for mediocre results. Thanks!

???? I'm struggling to figure out how someone could take out two dipsy lines. Was the guy driving through your splash well?

+1 on fishing away from pressure. I did not get bit last night until all the sailboats, powerboats, and other trollers had gone. 0-2, losing a screamer on a spoon and something bit the entire body off my flicker minnow..........

FISHING REPORT
9/3/15 9:45 AM CST
Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 71° - 75° F Water Temp: 56° - 60° F
Kings only with an odd Brown, 1 or 2 guys, morning and evenings, jigging only now, 2 - 5 hours of fishing averaging 2 - 11 fish average with several losses each day. Been fishing mostly mornings and some evenings. It appears the "late day" and "evening bites" are best. Fishing out of pressure is important for good numbers. This morning I fish a lot of "a typical" locations and found fish on all of them . In other words, it is not just the gaps going. It generally is where there is bait. Again, side scan to find the bait with hooks under it and you will likely find active fish. I even managed to slow down enough to find a school of bait this morning dead center in the harbor with hooks under it and popped a fish off of it. Same deal for baits all week... any blade or jig n gulp. I have not caught a stocked King all year. Many of the harbor fish are still "silver" including some good 8 - 10 lb eaters. Others darker than night. Go figure???

Yes, sir. In fact, trolling open water in Sept./Oct. is usually very good for immature kings. The last couple of years has actually been better fishing than summer IMO. Plus there's less traffic and sunrise is later so you don't have to get out there at 3:30am to catch power hour.

Thanks banjo, I will check it out. I actually met him ice fishing this year. Good to hear about the jigging. I meant can i still troll for immature non spawning fish during that time in open water?

Perch,

Search Haataja's youtube page. That should get you started.

You have the entire month of September to jig for kings so plenty of time. If you're looking for meat, time is ticking.

...add I would fish for them pre-spawn....LOL.
