FISHING REPORT
7/29/14 2:18 PM CST
Fishing continues to be the same. Last report before brew city as I'm hoping to stumble onto something. Over the weekend was fair. We have to redefine what good fishing is I think! Lol. Topped the weekend off with a 12 fish trip Sunday morning, but that is an exceptional day as of lately. High lead cores in 3 and 5 color with NBKs prove to be the best. Riggers took a few with flasher fly set ups white with bullfrog and dipsys have been pitching in a little with that same set up. Stayed under 60fow for the last week, but the NE wind warmed things up a bit so that will change now. Dipsys out 70-80. Riggers 25,35. Only ran 2 in shallow. Finding a few and grinding on an area seems to be key, as we have been in different directions and results stay the same. Bite to hook up ratio determines what your numbers are. Pretty excited to see what happens in the tourney, it's anyone's game. Good luck to all!!!! Good luck and see you on the water!

Ive been out a few times over the past week or so and I've gotta say fishing is still really tough. There are fish out there and some of them are willing to bite, but the struggle continues. The worst part is that I just can't seem to get any type of solid pattern going. What or where works one day, just never seems to produce the next. There are a few things that I have observed that seems to be somewhat consistent.

Spoons on short leads\ coppers seem to be the most consistent producers. Whether in shallow or out deep, the fish don't seem to be going very well on deeper setups. When out deeper, you see fish down 50+, but getting them to go seems next to impossible.

Flasher\ Flys are starting to pick up. I have caught very few fish at all on FFs this year which is very odd for me, but as of recently, they seem to be picking up steam. So, for those of you who may have given up on them, Id start putting them back out there.

The larger Kings that we have been catching seem to be around VERY cold water, and I mean "around" . We are not catching fish in that ice cold water but either above or around it.

I really hope we start to turn a corner here soon. All of nature seems to be a month or so behind, and Im hoping that our salmon fishing is just another example of that. There's a lot of mixing going on with the water right now. More typical of what you see in June, but I'm hopefull that when things settle down, if they do, we'll be able to pattern these fish more effectively.

Best news that I can give is that there are some really nice fish out there that fight like all get out if you can find them, and if you find one, they usually have friends. So , try to catch them too. Good luck out there guys. See ya on the water.....

Got an early start this morning 3am. We made the trip up to Fox Point hoping that all of the hooks we marked the previous night wanted to eat. They did not. Ended up going 3-6 fishing until around 8.

New to Milwaukee harbor we fish down south mostly. Was wondering if anybody has GPS coordinates for any bottom obstructions to avoid. I hear talk on the radio and see post talking about ship wrecks. I would prefer not to find them the hard way. I saw one marked on the GPS is there more?

Out sat morning. 5/5. 2 kings and 3 lakers. Blue chrome flasher with llb took 3 fish. Finally got the flasher fly going. Shorten the fly to 24 inches after a charter trip in Sb. Maybe that was the difference. All fish came from 5-6am

Had a pretty good morning trip with 70 to120 fow being the best. Lead core 2,3,4,5, and 6 are still stud setups with moonshine and stinger spoons. Went 8 for 12 with steelhead giving us a show before getting off. Here are a couple pics from this morning.

SWR = secret weapon rig it is either 1 color or 2 colors of lead then 20-50ft mono/flouro on your rigger rod.

4 Kings (18.5#, 18#,16#, small one), 2 Lakers, 1 Coho, 1 Rainbow. 1 guy, 3 rod, 4 hours, evening, 72'ow just inside the C.F. Wreck to Fox Point, all hits 7 color, all fish Blue Knight Spoons. Evenings are proving to be a better time to fish right now vs. mornings for me based on last night. I am usually a morning guy, however last night my first bite came in 15 min. and it only slowed for a short period of time. I had a dipsy, and an SWR down originally but after the first three fish I did something I don't often do...I pulled them and went to all of the same (7 color and Blue Night Spoon). It paid! I am not sure if the other rods (if I left them down) would have fired off or not... but why chance it... I had a 7 color that was consistent lost at least 3 other screamers. I saw very little bait where I was fishing, but I did see Kings and Lakers on the finder. Unlike Bender early in the day yesterday morning the water fleas were not an issue. Bait is heavy at Bender and not so much where I was fishing north. There are dramatic differences in only "that much Lake" right now.

fishing with flashers fly's has been very slow on the DR's. I launched the boat at 7pm at Bender, was fishing by 7:20. 3 rods in the water (2) DR in 60-65fow set at 40 30 yards back. white glow flashers and aqua/silver flys. (1) 6 color LC with Green Glow spoon. last week water temp was 65-67 at surface, last night it was 60 at surface. Last week, nothing on downriggers all week (1 fish). Last night, couldn't keep up. almost everyhing hit on the DR's. the 6 color was productive with landing a few. the biggest of the day was a nice king about 17lbs caught on the DR aqua fly. I was marking fish everywhere. I put the boat back on the trailer at 8:45. went 3 for 7. Much better results from a week ago. Im no expert at this stuff, just started on the big pond a few weeks ago, so Im sorry guys if i dont know the lingo of wich lures I'm using. All i can say is in my opinion, surface temp is 7 degrees cooler than a week ago and fishing has improved tremendously. Maybe the northest winds we had the last few days set the lake up nice. I was out about 2.5 miles straight out from Bender park. another thing, Ive seen a what appeared to be a bait ball cover my entire screen in Red. (once again, im new fishing the big pond and im still trying to figure out my new hummingbird as well) It was crazy. Ive seen smaller bait pods, but literally, this one covered my entire screen and th screen continued to page through with solid red.
