FISHING REPORT

The 2015 big boat season started off with a bang today! Not knowing what was going to be around after the giant blow for the last week Made me skeptical. Set in 30 fow, and that is where we stayed. Went 15 for 18 for 3 hours of fishing. Was not what I was expecting. Ran 3 riggers all with orange killer stingers. Dipsys with any copper colored spoon good as well. Best rod of the day was a 5 color down the chute with....I don't even know what the name of it spoon. Copper with green and orange dots. Ran coho set ups with 0 coho bites. Probably wasn't fishing in the right spot for the cohos that are still around. Tallied 3 kings all on that no name spoon. 3 lake trout and the rest Browns. If this is the forecast for the rest of the year fishing wise, I am a happy man.righers were set at 30,22,15. Dipsys out 50. Boards did nothing. Weather will more than likely change the bite with the wind coming tomorrow so it might be a few days til we get back on it. Good luck and see you on the water.

The ThunderSmelt made a strong voyage tonight from South Shore. Our first discovery was 48-49 degree water near shore. Second we found the water was 45 down 8'. Such a great setup compared to prior weeks of 38-41. Our adventure was an eventful one going no more than 15 min without a strike or better said a RIP on the planer boards from 5-7. We managed to land 2 browns in the delicious size range and lost what I am sure was the largest brown I have ever hooked aboard this Warrior ThunderSmelt of mine. I was simply dumbfounded to see that it had broken the loop holding the hook to the thunderstick. (this was one of the baits where I had replaced the hooks and loops with stainless ones) Sorry skipper, I promise we'll get you another massive fish next time. Throughout the evening we went 2/9 with a mixed spread. Fish only hit boards with cranks that were miles (figuratively) away from the boat. Upon reaching 7p fishing shut down with one last missed fish. Great night with a great crew as always. Looking forward to more adventures with these skippers.

Did a quick trip 2h Saturday night out of South Shore, went due south looking for the obvious stained, muddy/sandy, and clear water lines. Worked the stained to muddy line going 2/4 in the 44deg 15fow. Lost a very nice bow behind the boat, all we could see was a fish going wild without any rods moving, then finally the rigger tripped.

Fished out of Bender on Sunday after hearing the strong reports from Saturday. Wasn't worth the trip. Too many boats crowded around the plant scattering fish. We pushed south hard towards wind point to find some warmer water and no other boats, picking up one rather nice brown before the winds blew us north again into the cooler water. Radio chatter repeated the same lack of success.

Though I never met him, Jason offered to give me a bunch of spoons after I was swamped in MKE. That's character.

Trolled from 7 to 1 pm on Saturday. Started out slow, but once we found the warm water, and the color preference, our success improved. Ended up going 8 for 9. Dipsey rods took 4 fish, 25 loc. 2 color leadcore had action, and our downrigger was hit twice, down 10 -15 feet. All fish taken in less than 25 fow. Spoons worked best for us.

I went out of SS also on Saturday and trolled all over from 6 am til 10 am looking for these elusive cohos only to find a few browns. We trolled from 12 fow out to 30 fow and notta for coho. If anyone feels like throwing me a bone I would really appreciate it. I was using mainly flicker shads on boards and a couple of small stinger spoons. Too fast? Too slow? Wrong area? Water was a consistent 36.9 everywhere we fished. Going 1.9-2.3 GPS speed. Concentrated on the area south of the launch right by the apartment/condo complexes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Went out yesterday out of South Shore and only had one coho on. Went back early this AM and had nothing. Went down to Bender and lost one coho. Made contact with MuskyIL, got some good intel and headed back towards SS at 11. Got 7 cohos in a half hour, kept 5. Knowing how easy it was and the weather was going to get bad this week, I called my dad and I took him out. Didn't take long and he got a limit as well. All on Flicker shads.

Thanks MuskyIL you saved what would have been a fairly poor trip!
