Late report from the weekend. Saturday morning started in 110fow north of the towers. Marked fish but no takers. Headed strait east and didn't get bit till we got outside of 200fow. Went 4 for 5 between 200 and 240 with 3 lakers and one bow all on riggers with flasher fly down 60-70. Started Sunday morning in 60fow and found low 50 degrees down 50. Between 5:30 and 6ish landed a 16 and 17 pound king in 70fow. One on 10 color blue knight and one on swr down 50 flasher fly. Once the sun got higher the bite was over. Headed out to 170fow and trolled NE. Got one bow on rigger and lost a giant king on same rigger flasher fly. Certainly not fast and furious fishing but was happy to get what we did after talking with others.

Fished sat evening from 5 till Dark.  Ended up going 3/4 with 2 kings and 1 Laker.  Fished between 90 and 120' FOW trolling both NE and SW around the towers.  Our best King was a 20lb screamer that came just before dark on a blue J-Plug on 5 Color LC in about 90 FOW.  It took my buddy 40 minutes to get it in.  Had another 10lb king on a 10 color LC on a orangeish/pinkish spoon and the laker came on a rigger about 78' down over 120 FOW on a Flasher and LBB Fly.

A lot of big fish at the cleaning house.  While we were cleaning ours there was a 27 and 23lber being cleaned as well.  Doesn't seem like many people are getting high numbers, everyone and between 2-5 fish in the box but some big fish are being had...

Good Luck out there!

Day 2 of not hitting the "X". 5-1030a, 65-110fow, 4 guys, 2 browns. 

We found cold water and big pods of bait this am but no hooks to be found. 

Sounded like the bite was the first hour for those who hit the mark and found fish.

Worked deeper water this morning 100-175 as that worked Wednesday evening with a #22 king an #11 laker ( with lamprey ) and a #4 coho. Went 0-0 today 

Also lost an offshore board north of McKinly with a pro release, so I'm looking at a $50 loss. If anyone found it, I would be willing to trade good beer for its return. My name and number are on it.

Thanks, Doug ( Loweboat)
