Started this morning at 6:30AM in 70fow east of filtration plant. Went 2/2 with a 6lb laker at 7:30 in 120fow on a F/F, dipsy, 110 loc. Trolled north at the same depth and a half hour later picked up a 4lb. laker on a dolphin spoon behind a blue jet diver. Adjacent to towers when the fish hit. Circled the SS Milwaukee and headed back with no more action. Beautiful morning to be out! 10 color with dolphin spoon, plugs and other spoons quiet.

Yep. Get the best you can afford! Thats even after... Surprisingly my 2 $20 canon black plastic rod holders still are going strong after plenty of hours dragging dipsies and hits. Ive had foam get chewed off the rod grip while a 25 lber demolished a spoon. So if you gotta go cheaper I actually would recommend them before some same price metal holders.

set your drags accordingly and you will be fine with those holders. I had to start there on my now old boat before upgrading to Tite locks. You will want to upgrade for sure.

Just get the good ones right away. You have no idea what a king can do to a rod holder. Lol

Going to try trolling the big lake for the first time for some salmon. Just bought 2 new dipsy rods. Was wondering if these rod holders will hold up.

Fished last night just having fun. It was a beautiful night to be fishing. 2 guys, 6 rods 90 to 160 FOW 2 for 4. Slow but we caught fish. Dipsy out 110 FF/Bull Frog,Wire back 120 Tuna Plug and Full core Mag Glow took hits. In case you heard me on the radio last night here is a pic of the king we fought for way to long. It's not the 20+ we thought we had but on the 10 color is was a long fight with a buried board.

Blue Ribbon had a better night with 9 fish, those guys are killing it lately. I'm back out tomorrow hopefully my numbers go back up.

Got out for a evening troll tuesday. Waves were much more than predicted. Only put two lines in the water. Hit a smaller king on a dipsey set on 3 with 135loc with white flasher and aqua fly in 70FOW. Did not see another boat out. Bailed when we the wind started to pick up. Noticed the strange current as well.

The weekend fishing was still pretty decent running the same spread as previous reports. Sunday started to slow and Monday was good, but Tuesday, very tough only taking 5 fish. Tuesday had what I would say the worst current I have seen since I started chartering. Over 1kt on Tuesday, out of a strange southeast direction to boot. This could be the cause of the slow in the fishing as there was a ton of water moving around. Never the less, it was still great to be out. Coppers are starting to get some action in 225 and 300 lengths. 10 color produced a few as well. Dipsys out from 100 to 150 have taken just a few. Dipsys were my best thing going a week ago. Riggers producing the best over the last week. From the bottom up to 75 in around 90 to 120fow. Best flasher fly combo white flasher lbb fly. Best spoon, not a clue as nothing has stood out, but if I had to pick 1 it would be stinger HuD. We really need some stable weather. Thermocline is definitely setting up. Good luck and see you on the water.

Back to 103ft 6:45 between way point and the filter same ff combo a 7 # laker released. Pulled lines at 10:00 as the wnw winds kicked in waves. Slow morning however the fish gods have spoken. Great to be back in action for silver salmon! Smile Smile Smile

Beautiful day at Church on Sunday am. Dropped lines in 85fow at sunrise on an E. troll to start and had steady action on 6-rods. Ran FF with an aqua, green/purple or green, Big boy hit the Last Supper fly on a green coyote flasher. Concentrated on the 90fow mark. Top 50fow was the most productive. Ran 2 dispeys at 45 down, 2 SWR with FF off the Boards and 2-riggers, all took hits. Ended up with 2 Cohos, 2 Chins, and a bonus Rainbow in the box. going 5 for 9. 17.5# on the scale for the King. My son Brett has had a couple Chins of that caliber up to the boat only to end up disappointed, not this time! Big Smile Way to Go little buddy, with just a little help from Uncle Mark too.
