FISHING REPORT
5/23/15 6:30 AM CST
Made the traditional Memorial Day Friday trip out of Manty. Left the dock as the sun was rising, took a run south. Surface temps were consistent around 41-42. Dropped the temp probe before setting up in 90, temps were pretty consistent top to bottom. Not sure exactly what I was fishing for, I started with a mixed king/laker/brown spread. Thought of fishing shallower focusing on browns, but never made it shallower than 55.

We mainly worked 65 to 95, put two kings and two lake trout in the box. All four were plump & healthy, which I was pleased to see. No pattern; both kings on spoons, one on down rigger near bottom, the other on a short copper ~ 20 foot down. Lake trout came on flasher fly down 40 - 50.

Gorgeous day on the water, it was great to feel a few fish tug on our lines. Hopefully the start to a good season!!

Catchkilleat, was at twin cities marina on saturday they were putting the docs in for the slip then. I know they didnt get much accomplished then, guess they finished it up today. I was also extremely irritated by their late start. Oh well though, guess thats how it goes. On a side note, went out saturday afternoon was a bit choppy and pretty foggy. Fished 40 FOW water, the temp was around 41 degrees I want to say at 10 ft down. I was pulling small spoons and flicker shads never got a bump. I was more concerned with making sure the boat was up to par and ready for the season. Good luck to all.

We did a little shake down run this morning on the Semper Fi in the extremely foggy conditions. Surface temps inside of 35fow were right around 50 degrees. Marked some nice bait pods inside 35fow also. We slid out to 70fow just to see what we ran into. The surface temps fell a little to 46-47 degrees and we were not seeing the bait pods out there either, probably because they are all on the shore line spawning. We did get a real nice lake trout in 60fow. Other than that it was pretty uneventful. Hoping the water will warm a few more degrees in the next couple weeks to turn things on.

We had the Salmon Chasers boat out for a little shake down run yesterday. Dropped a few lines in and managed to catch 2 browns and 2 lake trout fishing between 9 and 11am. The fish all came on spoons of various colors long lining behind boards and riggers. We fished mainly out in front of the pier heads at Two Rivers and didn't get out much deeper them 25 FOW. The charter season will be starting soon and we will be posting more when that starts. Good Luck to everyone out fishing this season!! Captain Rich

Beautiful out last night. Laker on a spoon/rigger and a few Browns on crank airs. #5 flickers and the #12 I think it would be rogue.

What kind and sizes of cranks are typical out here? Just got into this water last year and looking to see what else I can add to the tackle box.

Question: are you guys pulling all cranks or some spoons early in the year? I don't get over this early but I am looking to head over in the next few days. Thanks.

Kings and Coho will probably be within 2-3 miles of shore by mid to late May, however every year is different. In some of the busier ports, some people have caught a few very close to shore already. Typically throughout the year you don't have to travel more than 2-3 miles to find fish, but of course there are exceptions.

Water temperature is key more than any other factor.
