Fished solo today from 530-830. Went 6/6 two browns, one coho, two chins, one bow. The browns and one chin came in 75-95 fow. 5 color small pk spoon and rigger pk spoon down 42. Slipped out to 140 due to a tip and changed the 5 color to a mag bloody nose - took a nice bow. Rigger down 42 took the coho and finally a port Washington rig out 120 took the last chinny. Great day to get out. -ThunderSmelt-

I am wondering if anyone could answer my question. I'm fairly new to the big pond. I was out trolling michigan this morning and as I would pull my line up I noticed 3 of my 4 lines out were tangled, not with each other but itself. This happened two different times. It looked like the spoon at the end of the line came forward and wrapped around the dipsey diver. The spoon is about 4 feet from the dipsey when trolling. My other line had the fly wrapped around the flasher. The fly was 18'' from the flasher. When I set the lines they were good. I never stopped. I had 100 feet of line out on one and 200 on the other. Why would this have happened. I was do ''S'' turns as I was trolling, but not to the extreme it would cause them to wrap up. At least I don't think so. Needless to say I didn't catch anything. Haha If anyone could give me any help on this I would appreciate it. Thanks

Heading out in the AM. Wondering if anyone would ponder what these crazy winds recently have done to the water/temps? I suppose if they are staging this wind/weather/water temp. change may not effect them much and hence "business as usual" for this time of year. Any educated guesses? ty rjs

If you need help getting out, and need someone there to do what you can't while healing, I'll jump at the chance to fish with you. I love your reports, even though I don't fully understand most of it. I want to learn more about possibly doing a low tech version of fishing this water out of my smaller boat, the chance to see all you write about in person would be huge and so quickly advance my new learning curve.

I live in Racine... and can be pretty flexible about timing. Good luck healing, and PM me if interested and needing some assistance.

Setup this morning in 90' out from the main gap. Had one king in the dark one a 7 color blue knight. That was all the action until sun up. Then it was a steady pace. Ended up 12-something close to 20. All rods took fish 7 and ten color Dipsy flasher fly at 200 dipsey and spoon 125 swr was at 57 and the other rigger with flasher fly stayed around 60-70. Most fish were caught in a 100 yard area in 85-86' it really pays off to waypoint bigger fish and swing back over that waypoint again and again until you wear it out.

Set up in the dark 70fow east of N Gap and no bites until enough light we didn’t need lights on the Off Shore boards. First to go a real screamer on first time in the water 150 copper rig and Brad’s spotted cow. It buried the board and just kept pulling out of sight. When the board came back into view 60’ rigger white dodger/ Brad’s Happee Meal bouncing with a shaker king. Meanwhile the 8 color Mag Blue Knight fired and we got the board off then part way back the fish fell off. A minute later 40’ rigger white dodger Brad’s Purple Frog another howler. We are still working the 150 copper fish and near the boat gets into a wire dipsy. I was able to get that undone but then into the rigger fish and after all that work 150 copper fish lost to a cut line. Before I could get the rigger fish in the net 120loc Wire Dipsy white dodger/Spotted cow rips out to over 400’. Poor guy who worked the 150 had to tackle that one but learned in the process how to handle fish bigger than bass and not get totally worn out.

With a start like that I thought we were into a great day but only 3 more bites when we moved out to 95fow with 71 surface and 55 down 60. Two kings on 200 copper Big Al Flasher chrome lazer/Brad’s Wonderbread and 150 copper with Spotted Cow, our first coho in awhile and a little over 9#. Hope more of them start showing. It was getting a little bouncy from the NNW and a ripping current from the south making fishing more of a challenge. We could see lightning to the far south and when a friend’s wife came on the radio reporting something might be coming at us we cut the day short.

The 4 chinooks were hens with eggs, 2 with and 2 without adipose fins. Interesting to see fish with an adipose fin present starting to turn color and still on our side of the lake. I hope that’s a trend that continues.

I’m not sure when I’ll get out again. Just before getting in the truck to drive home I caught my foot on the trailer tongue and awkwardly fell on my left shoulder. ER visit once home and no fractures. Ortho will look at me tomorrow regarding ligaments. Dang just when the fish were showing up again. Even the bluegills for now are safe.

Had an absolute blast this past weekend with my good friend on his 27' Grady White. His girlfriend and I double up to land this brute Saturday night in the high seas (4-6 footers). 85FOW 67degrees rigger 50 feet down with a purple spoon. Got the smaller king on the same setup but with a flasher fly only minutes before the big guy. Went 2-3

HUGE thank you to Princecraft01 who was generous enough to take me out with him this morning. It was my first time out on the lake and I learned so much. Unfortunately I was not much luck to him, but it was so wonderful to be out on the water and he is an excellent teacher. Thanks a million Tim and tight lines to all!
