Jason - It was good to meet you on Sunday and your guide service met my expectations as a top notch operation.   Good luck fishing and I look forward to a future trip.   Thank you for the good tips and beware that reverse lightning.

With all this cold water around its hard to decide where to be when. Fished shallow water and harbor are with mixed results for the past week had trips of 2 fish up to 20 fish. Everyday is different and lightning never seems to strike twice in the same spot. Kings and Browns are on the menu. We have been fishing a full spoons spread with 1,2,3 color lead cores. Braided dipstick. And riggers. Boards are best as the water is clear. Best spoon ha been nbk hands down. Plugs are taking a few bit that seems to change by the day. Secret to having a good bite is to be alone. When the gaps are busy it's kind of a waste so I would look elsewhere. As far as the fog over the weekend. I often scratch my head when I see that number of boats on a day like that. I know it's Saturday and yea gotta get out there.....but if you are just using gps as guidance.....slow down. I have radar and I don't go over 8kts. In that crap. The fish will wait. Even guys in big boats like me get nervous when you can hear and outboard screaming 60 feet away and he has no idea I'm there. So if I yelled t you. You had it coming. Lol. Fishing in that kind of fog is Stressful. Good luck nd see you on the water.

I'm looking to come out and do some casting for salmon. I've got a wife and kid free night Friday so thinking that would be a good time to go. Any tips? Is it worth the trip from Delavan?

I think I may bring the paintball gun with. Easy to identify the unsafe boaters

Agreed, Gus. I was almost run over in the fog Friday night. Moron was driving 30mph in the fog. 


We sometimes make jokes about getting the flare gun out on these jerks but I'm one more "near miss" from putting one in the chamber.

Friday evening report:

fished solo 40fow outside the harbor.  2 color with mag sooperfly spoon from R&R (can't remember the name, looks like a cracked ice type) took 2 kings (8lb and 20+lb).  Dipsey on 3 set 50 to 70 loc took 3 kings (10lb, 3lb, and 5lb) with mag nbk.  Green ladderback j-plug on cuda torpedo took a 4 lb coho.  No joy on the cuda with a silver j-plug, mag black ice on dipsey, or flat lined flicker shad.  Boatside released all but the 10lb king and the coho as they were bleeding out anyway, too much salmon in the freezer already.  Pretty sure I was in the pattern with Jason unless someone else has a big wellcraft and a bunch customers having a good time.

Fished from 330 to 10 this morning. Started in 40 fow heading north. Started wth glow stuff on 2 ff, 2 j plugs and 2 spoons.  Plugs did all damage in the dark. Trolling in dark and in fog was wild. Not watching the graph I did a super tight circle by accident and cant believe I got nothing tangled. Picked at them after sunrise with everything taking hits. Had a screamer on for a long while and right at the back of the boat, he broke my tail dancer in half and left me with just the plastic lip. Caught many super small kings on short lines so we were able to release quite a few. Ended cleaning 6 fish from 3 to 17 lbs. fished from 35-70 fow with the 35-50 foot range being best with a south troll doing best. Heading out in morning again if the waves play nice. People definitely need to slow their butts down in the dark and in the fog. A few times came up on boats trolling that we didn't see until 50 feet away. No tangles with anyone. Beeping the horn every once in a while sure keeps things in order out there.
