A great time out on the water last week. Flat calm, warm and a couple of fish in the cooler. Not much for the bigger salmon around the pierheads, but a few kings, browns, and a rainbow in the mix. Spoons on dipseys and downriggers were doing the best. Our fishing season is winding down fast on the Willie Bee, a couple more days and 2014 will be in the history book. The river fishing for the big kings has turned on, as a lot of fish have moved up river to Shoto and Mishicot.

made yet another final trip to the big pond this weekend. cruise down to 180 and set up started catching fish in about 220. Went 10 for 12 in 220-250 and were filled up by 930. All spoons from surface to 75 down. Freeze pop, bloody nose and muskmelon taking most of the action. We've had a very good last couple of trips to end this tough 2014 season. Boat is getting pulled Saturday so that is it. Sad Good luck to all and see you again next year!

Good News,

Fish cleaning equipment was recovered. Thank you Sea Gull Marina. After all the fun we had at the marina this last season we are looking forward to spending more time next year.

On Saturday morning the rainbows got the best of me as I went 0 for 5. Three jumps and they were gone. Orange spoons from the surface down to a 4 color got the hits in ~240 FOW.

Fortunately everything else stuck (6 for 6) including 3 lakers, 2 small kings and a mini-coho. Lakers hit white flasher flies down 100'. Kings hit white flasher fly and a silver/blue spoon 30' & 50' down.

There were a number of thick scum lines out there including close to the harbor. I think when a little breeze blew up against them you would see the water appear to push up against them which is what you are looking at. I saw those out there as well on my way out yesterday afternoon.

Did a solo run out of Seagull yesterday afternoon. Fished the water off the lighthouse in that 280 to 375 fow. Went three for four. All rainbows. Fished three boards. Magnum and regular sized spoons. Anything with white tape is what I was running. Hot tip from the guys at the fish cleaning station. Four and five color lead core. And my 60 feet of line one ounce snap weight and sixty feet more line and the board caught two and took another hit. First was a nice 9.5 pounder and the other two were five pounders. They fought hard all the way to the boat.

Also left my fish cleaning equipment there at the cleaning station. A red and black bag with some fish bags and fillet knives. If anyone picked it up for me let me know. I will come and get it. 920-428-2745

What a beautiful morning for fishing, except the fish exactly agree. I worked from 90 to 170 FOW. I also saw no thermocline with 52 degrees on the surface and 50 down 90'. Didn't find any rainbow action, but picked up a pair of 5 lb kings and a mini-coho. Got 3 of 4. No real pattern to the hits: 1 orange spoon on a 3 color, 1 green dolphin on a 4 color, one NBK 30' down off rigger and one 120' down on a flasher/fly.

Who Farted: yes deep water fishing can be very good from now through the end of October, so long as the weather is nice.

Got out for the first time in a very long time on 9/23. Left the Manty pierheads ~ 2:30 PM and took a 15 mile boat ride on a 120 heading. Set up in ~ 280, surface temps around 53, no real thermocline below (dropped temp probe once before setting up).

Worked that depth plus or minus ~ 10 feet north and south. Had some good action, 9 for 11 with four rainbows, three kings, one lake trout (and a shaker released). 100 copper with spoons, 300 copper with spoon, flasher fly on rigger down 50, and spoon on rigger down 100 put fish in the box. The kings were deeper, the rainbows up higher. Last bite was an hour before sunset, had some fast action in spurts.

Fantastic day to be on the water. Would love to take advantage of this great weather again, but don't think it's going to happen. There were fish in that depth range, go get 'em.

Is there any kind of success out on the water this time of year? Or is it time to put stuff away for the season? Any help would be great. Looking at getting over for a trip if it's worth it.

Adamf, the pier always has something to offer this time of year, it's just a matter of being there at the right time.

best thing you could do is take a ride over and talk with some of the diehards, they range in age from about 10 to about well lets just say older... casting with cleo's might be a good way to get acclimated to the pier, have a long net, bring your patience and a cooler.

With the rain and warm weather for the weekend I would think it would be a great time to try your luck.

most of the people there are happy to share there success stories. hope this helps, either way if you catch one or not it beats working!!!
