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.

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.

Out solo this morning. Set lines in ~70 fow @ 4:15am and took a nice 14lb king right out of the gate. Then silence. 6:30 am picked up a small coho and then more silence. 7:40am had a nice 10 minute fight with another nice king that got off at boat side - net abortion. Sad And that was all she wrote. Continiued fishing fora few more hours, but to no avail.

Finished 2 for 3. Rigger down 40, 45 & 50 with cracked ice pro-king or Orange Easter egg spoons took all the action, and all in 70-75 fow south of the filtration plant.

Total radio silence all morning, so I assume others were not fairing much better. Only talked to one other boat at the cleaning station, who was 1 for 1.

Take Care,

D.

My Rant, First time out on the pond Sunday morning,( been chasing walleyes all of May and most of June ) All excited, heard the big silver fish are starting to show up. Hit the nice, flat water at 4:30 a.m. out the McKinley gap, and cruising on a NE heading about 25 m.p.h. We get out about a 1/2 mile, and I see another boat about 100 yards on my left cruising on the same heading, but slightly faster. He starts to take the lead and decides to cross in front of me,nice looking Lund Tyee. No problem, I slow down and cross his wake and resume to cruising speed. Continue on, trying to beat the sun out to 80 f.o.w. few minutes goes by and here comes the same boat this time crossing in front of me to my left. Really?!?! Cross his wake a second time and decide to veer hard right and go straight East, ( this guy can't make up his mind! ) Push on a few more minutes and guess what? Here he comes AGAIN and crosses in front of me AGAIN...for the 3rd time! sheesh.. MAKE UP YOUR MIND, JACK!!!

All right, no harm, no foul, finally reach my destination, get my troll on...12 year old nephew has wrassled 3 lakers out of the lake and into the box, life is good, got another boat trolling on my right 75 to 100 yards away, were both heading south at the same pace, when here comes another boat headed at us, with no one on either side of him, and he decides to troll right in between us, causing both of us to deviate,him, and a few other boats in the process. Bet u can't guess who it was..c,mon you get one guess.... Ladies and Gentleman now approaching in the LUND TYEE for the fourth and final time... Ray Charles? nope he's passed... hmm...Summefest is going on.. I know I know it must be Stevie Wonder!!! LOL!! 3 small lakers and a coho.! Rant complete!!!

Our fishing this weekend was slow at best, similar to the other reports from the last two days. Saturday we boated 6 fish hot and fast in the half hour before and after sunrise. Following that we lost 4 more and pulled lines at 830a. No real pattern to our rods which took strikes except they were targeting the 40-50' range in 85-95fow.

Sunday we repeated the same spread as Saturday with much calmer waters. Took two nice kings early, within 10 minutes of sunrise, and then proceeded to drive around for 3 hours taking only one additional strike on the rigger. Two early bites were again targeting the 40' range in 95fow.

Great fishing with great friends.

Got a call that a good salmon bite was to be found in 120-150fow near Fox Point so off the MKE for first time this season. Conditions were beautiful will some leftover rollers out of the north with 56.5 on the surface and 52 down 40. Almost all day we saw hook after hook on the locator but man they were not hungry. We worked 6miles north from setup in 120fow and out to 160 then eventually into 80s and no concentration of biters. Limited radio chatter confirmed we were not suffering alone and except for the action at first light most hadn’t had much going.

I talked to friends who were fishing out of Port that did well Sat and way slower for them also. Decided to enjoy the fair seas and tell stories and take what we could get because my crew’s supply of smoked fish almost exhausted. I pounded the bottom a lot with a Spin n Glo and pulled our biggest LT @13# and only one other release on that ol reliable. I wish I could have continued a northerly troll because the current was pretty strong. The kicker is fixed but big motor has a fuel issue so with the predicted SE rising winds didn’t want to get too far from the harbor. Luckily it worked OK yesterday and new fuel pump on order. Once we turned south just shy of the college we at times had to go 1mph faster SOG to keep the Depth Raider around 2.2.

One goal was accomplished: get a king that took drag. Despite being only 12# it buried the Off Shore board and we had to clear a side and turn to get it back up. It succumbed to a 150 copper with Blk/Pearl Big Al and Blue Hawaiian. We ended the trip with 3 hours of no bites. Score was 9 for 11 with 3 kings, 1 coho and 5LT.

Don't sweat it, Gus. The June swoon is upon us. Fishing wasn't going to stay hot all summer.
