Trolled the Gap last night out of Manitowoc due to weather.  1 for 1, was slow and rough.  The one we caught was ready to run and had not eaten in a while. Stomach was closed up but hit a spoon like a tank. Only saw one other one jump.   Water in the harbor was 71 so would imagine that his holding things up.

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

Late report from Friday 9/14.

Took a 90 heading out of Manty, enjoyed a nice  boat ride until we hit 500 and set up.  66-67 on the surface, thermocline was at 45 to 55 feet.

Marked a good number of fish around the thermocline.  Threw the kitchen sink at 'em, working 440 to 500.  Two baby rainbows released, lost what felt like a very big Lake Trout.  No other hits.  

Great day on the water, not much fish action to report.

Salmon are not in the river or the numbers are not there yet, need some cold nites to get it going.

Fish must be eating mosquitoes as they weren't eating baits Saturday morning.  A few fish caught very few by boats working the gap in Manitowoc Saturday AM or as I did a solo off shore and nothing there either willing to bite.  As I was setting my second rigger rod in at 210ft. a fish hit but was off just as fast.  Surface temps are 65 to 67 most places and there is a slight temp break down 50 plus where a fair number of hooks came through 50-70 down but they have lock jaw.  I zig zagged into 160ft. before pulling at 8:30AM.  The creel guy said I was the 6th boat he checked with 6 = Zero.  Almost dead flat in and out this morning.  Good Luck.

Fall run has been hit or miss for us. Friday before labor day went 0 for 1 hard thump and gone on a rigger. Went 2 for 6 on labor day with a 21 and 22lber, knocked a 20+ off at the boat and lost a huge screamer on a dipsey in the dark. Had 2 others jump and watched the plug fly out. This past Friday went 0 for 0. Yesterday morning 0 for 0. Last night 1 for 1 with a 21lber on a jplug right at dark. Wanted to fish this morning but couldn't rally anyone. Hopefully headed out in the morning. Would enjoy a west wind to kick them back on.
