5 of us in the Grand Hooker this morning out of Seagull, got on water early at 3am, went straight out to 40' then North between 50 and 70' most fish were caught by the wreck, we made it to the light by the end of our trip. 

Spoons were best but a 22# came on a pro king flasher, aqua fly and a 20# on black purple glow moonshine. Got 3 bows after the sun came up. 12 for 13 total and landing all 3 of a triple made a great fishing trip.

DNR with their crap about low alewives and reducing stocking is just an excuse for them to rob more of our stamp money

Trivers Fri night.  Launched at 7:30 pm.  Very heavy fog.  Went NE of TR to 60-75 fow range.  Fished to 10:30. Fog cleared after sundown.  Fishing alone so ran three rods. 2/3 on kings.  All hits on same line: rigger down 25' with Moonshine glow 1/2 wonderbread.  Ran f/f on other rigger with white glow flasher and green glow fly--0.  Slide diver with green slime, no hits so switched to Moonshine full wonderbread-0.  Third king was a monster.  Ran all over the place on the surface.  Eventually he dove into the kicker prop, wrapped the line and was gone.  Surface temp in the mid 50s.  25' down it was 48.  Speed around 2.5 on subtroll.  Never marked any bait, and only a few big marks here and there.  Talked to 3 other boats.  One went 2/4. Others had some fish.  Appears most were trolling back and forth in close to front of harbor mouth. One guy said they stayed in 20' of water all night. Hard to see all those white boats in the fog.  Lots of guys on the breakwaters fishing, saw a couple of them with fish.

0 for 0 tonight. Started out in the pack in 25ft, got bored after one pass so picked up ran out to 50ft. Had a quick 2 second rip on a 4 color and after that dead. Fished 430-745 when the fog got thick and we called it.

I see people are trolling just past the pier heads, are they not catching fish out deeper?

I had two nephews out for a short trip Tuesday evening.  Sunny and flat made this old fisherman a bit nervous but the net did see the water twice and the guys seemed ok with that.  I had nine lines in at 7PM thinking I could maybe coax a Steelhead in before the King bite but that did not happen so changed things over at 8PM working 50ft. to 75ft.. About 8:10 a nice King in pic gave Tyler in pic his first Lake Michigan Salmon and a pretty good fight.  That came off a 42ft. rigger bloody nose spoon.  About 8:45 a wire dipsy out 55ft. set 2 took our other King maybe 8# on a flasher fly double aqua fly.  Rigger balls were still pretty cold but that may change here with the next couple days can't remember a time when cold water stayed put for this long near shore.  Both Kings were natural and females with no bait in them.  Talked to two other boaters at dock with 3 and 2 fish.  Good luck.

6 for 6 last night, all kings keeping 5 between 4 and 9lbs, releasing one small shaker. Variety of spoons on lead and dipseys took all 6. Staying away from the pack of boats was our key.

I use thus info and it's generally pretry close.  It's usually updated a few times per day.  More accurate on clear days than cloudy.

I don't think there is an observation buoy up that way but I like keeping track of this one located about a mile straight out from Port Washington.
