I had a different game plan Monday evening after our Sunday skunk - go deep. We set in off Manty in 210ft. and did one troll into 110ft. with five scattered bites and landed three of those fish. A King, Laker, and Bow.. The Laker hit first off a 200ft. copper I ran down the middle with a blue/yellow spoon. Then the King off a deep wire dipsy bechhold lbb fly. The Bow came last on a 5 color wonderbread spoon. No depth was better than any other as all 5 bites were scattered. Water is pee warm on top. Dead flat. The grandson cranked some of the laker in. The two bites we missed were in the top 30ft. of the column. Good luck.

Took some time off and fished 15th to 20th. Lake has flipped with cold water inland. Caught up in the big storm with one brave sole aboard with me. Winds had to b 50 mph! Went straight into the wind near the lighthouse and anchored near shore. Protected! Whew. Coast Guard came at us while looking for a missing craft. Let them know we were ok. Grady White was awesome. PT-73 brought in one fish. Note to self-check weather dummy. We went south of Manty Friday and were skunked 70-90 fow. Spent the rest north of TR and had one or two per trip. Did not see anyone with nets out. Fish were in 40-60 but I found this out too late after runs to 300 etc. Monday my crew netted a nice 18# king on five color planer superman pro king magnum. They ran over the lines as I slept below and had the hugest mess in history. Donated a ball, a couple hundred feet of line and lead core , a planer board and more to the junk pile or Davey Jones Locker. Was totally exhausted when I returned to work Tuesday but had fun.

I always check Michigan coast watch sea grant before every time I fish. For Monday morning it showed 55-60 degree surface temps in front of the point beach nuke plant, so that's were I pointed the boat. I went 5 for 9 fishing 30-50 fow. I picked up the big boy after everyone headed out deep, I always stay where the fish are at first light, they will bite again if you just wait them out. Beautiful morning for a 5 fish limit. Neighbors are happy to receive fresh fish.

Ok, the good with the bad and it was slow, slow slow Sunday PM off Manitowoc. Two other friends docked as I did and there was a skunk in one boat and the other had a Brown. I had checked maybe 7 or 8 boats AM Sunday and it was 1 or 2 fish with one boat having 3. The surface temps were 66 to 72 PM and 50 half way down as the flat sunny day warmed things up from the AM. I had two nephews along and was hoping but the two rips we had were short and gone. One came off a three color the other a 5 color. Plenty of weed floating inside of 25 to 30 feet. My son fishing the Kewaunee piers also had nothing last night. Still a nice night for a boat ride and shooting the breeze. We worked 50 to 85ft. last night. The boats were all over the place searching. Good Luck.

just looking for a little help, looking at coming over for a day trip tomorrow with my boy. what are my odds of finding some fish to bite during the daytime? I only get over 2-3 times during summer, we have a couple hour drive so probly wont be over until lunch time and would fish till dark and make the trip back home. Also has anybody having any decent success? I am not looking for exact gps coordinates or baits, but if you wouldn't mind some general info I would appreciate it. shoot me a PM.

Great morning out on the 14 footer. Set up in 20 fow right in front of the north water tower. The two big kings on a mother of pearl J-plug. The rainbow and smaller salmon on pump handle using 4 oz works. One short of my limit, was back to the launch at 8 a.m.

Tangled 2 thanks for the great reports the past 10 years. They are informative. The autofish system is used for chinook salmon and not trout as of yet. There is a greater than >99% clip rate and each fish is weighed, scanned, and implanted with IDs. Tangled 2's fish are not trout.

The Autofish System The centerpiece of the Mass Marking initiative is the automated tagging and marking trailers (Figure 2A) from Northwest Marine Technologies, which have been employed for years in the Pacific Northwest for salmon management. The AutoFish System is an alternative to manual clipping and tagging in high volume stocking applications. The AutoFish SCT6 is a self-contained mobile system contained in a 44-foot aluminum 5th wheel trailer that has one dual exit sorter and six individual processing lines (Figure 2B). The system can sort by length, adipose clip, and coded-wire tag salmonines from 57 to 142 mm without anesthetic or human handling. The fish are never completely dewatered during the process, thereby reducing fish stress. Significant features of the system are: • Adipose clip and snout tag (Figure 2C) or adipose clip only or snout tag salmonines ranging from 57 mm to 142 mm total length. • Over 60,000 fish processed in eight hours with one skilled operator and an assistant. • Accurate counting and length sorting to within 1 mm of total length (Figure 2D). • No anesthetic required and no human handling. • Fin clipping rates and CWT placement accuracy superior to that of manual operations. Low mortality (<0.1%), very high clip rates (>99%), and excellent CWT retention rates (>98%). • Less costly to operate than manual clipping and tagging systems.

I hope u guys realize that some stocked trout make it threw with no fin clips mark then u think a machine does it and if they are to close there's no fin clip on one fish there as a reminder to how all of sudden we have all this natural reproduction? ????

Overcast, raining, choppy good King weather Wednesday night out of Manitowoc. Seemed like the rain clouds were magnetized to my boat. Some colder water had been inside for a few days but probably won't stick around long. I had 6 lines set at 6:45PM. 56 to 59 surface with mid-40's half way down. Our first King took a mag moonshine wonderbread spoon on a 5 color about 7:30PM. Two other Kings came off wire dipsies running them deep with white bechholds and lbb and naughty leprechaun flies, each took one fish. We did 45ft. to 70ft. twice before pulling at 9PM. The fish were all natural re-producers. Good luck.

Made a full day of it out of TR yesterday; worked 30 to 60 feet from 4:30 to 9:00 a.m and ended with 6 Kings, two Bows, and a Brown to finish 9 for 11. Spin Doctors on dipsys and a wonderbread J-plug on a rigger did most of the work. Worked the same area from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m., ending up with 5 Bows, 4 Kings, and a Brown to go 10 for 16. UV Moonshine and Warrior spoons on the dipsys and 2 & 3 color boards were best set ups for us in the p.m.
