Fished 6 to 9 last night near the nukes in 35-45 fow. 25' down temp was in the upper 40s.  One drive-by on a slide diver pulling Moonshine bloody nose.  Marked at least big three schools of Alewives.  One school had to have thousands of fish--at 2.3 MPH the school filled the screen for 10 seconds from bottom at 45' up to 30'.  Marked a few salmon, but only the one hit.  I can't believe that lack of alewives is a problem.  Have marked a few other schools of bait this summer too, in different locations, and I have only been able to get out 4 times.

We went out Friday night and it was awesome weather, just a little ripple so had my boat up on plane and wide open.  Tried up by the plant pavilion to right out front.  Good temps but not much marking.  no bites. The water did get warmer as we headed north, the down temp went way up in front of the plant.

We headed back to town and set up in 33 FOW off of the North water tower, the fish were lighting up the screen all over, way cooler temps we had a 47 down temp in 35 FOW to the north about 25 feet down.   We got one dark dinky four year old and he was ready to do his thing in the river. He was not feeding, tight stomach and ready for his last run.  Hit a Watermellon Moonshine. 

The fish are Stacked up in front of town, we never went deeper than 38 and stayed out of the boats and only got the one fish.  When they decide to go it will be ugly.

Pier guys:  Going out the harbor was 60 degrees and full, I mean full of bait.  the boat in front of us was stirring them up and they were jumping everywhere!  tide blew cold water in when we came in and it was 55 in the harbor.

It was a nice trip for us not to have to fight the weather and the heat


Good Luck!!!

Not so good by the nuke plant off Two Creeks. Managed 2 in close 30 fow, one black donkey, baby donkey. Checked the extended wind an coastwatch, showed a good temp break so I headed out deep. After 100 fow the bottom drops out. Setup in 250 fow an got bite right away from the best eating bug eaters, soaring rainbow trout. Missed a couple. Bites were in 250-285 fow. Good luck to all.

Two Creeks is deep, you can launch anything you want. I fished out of TR cuz any little rollers coming in it can turn ugly quick. Fished 30-35 fow North pasted the light, not much. Turned around an fished 20-25 fow in front of the piers an got dizzy an got bit, marked a lot. Lost the nicer 3yr old fish but the baby donkeys wouldn't let go. Coho an browns will eat good. Should be calm enough to hit two creeks in the a.m.. Good luck an see use in the morning

Fished the clay humps in front of the TR nuke plant. Water was way warmer than I expected but the fish were in close. 35-45 fow. Only one on a plug, kept the little guys happy with blue dolphin mag spoon on slide divers. Was all alone, didn't get dizzy doing circles in town in front of the pier. Last trip of the year, gotta load her up with decoys. Good luck to all

Left the Manty dock after the rain passed ~ 3:30 PM Sunday.  Saturday's west wind had pushed warm surface water out, surface temp outside the harbor was mid to upper 50's.

Took ~ 8 mile boat ride to the south, set up in 110 and started working in & out, mainly between 80 and 120.  Put two 8 - 10 pound kings in the box.  One hit a spoon on a 7 color, one hit a flasher fly down 45 on rigger.  Caught and released about 5 small kings (ranging from 10 inches to a couple pounds).

At dusk, pushed in to 50.  Worked 50 to 60 for close to an hour, not a bump. 

Didn't make it happen, but an absolutely gorgeous sunset and night on the water.

Left home from Fox Cities area at 3:45 AM Friday knowing it was likely going to be a short trip.  Arrived at the Manty dock, no other fools had put in.  One larger boat that was slipped I assume was working straight out in I'd guess 130 when we left the pierheads still in the dark.

We took about a 140 heading, running to 130 FOW.  Could see the lightening on the horizon as we started setting up.  For the sake of time, never put the probe down.  Surface temp was mid 70's.

Got our two-man program out.  Two 300 coppers, one 250 copper, a wire dipsy, a 5-color, and one rigger.  Worked from 130 in to 90.  First big cell was getting close, we figured if we pulled and ran south it would miss it.  So we threw caution to the wind and did that.  After a 4 mile run south and getting away from the first cell, set the spread out and got another hour in before we pulled the plug.  One hit, an 8 pound rainbow that hit a 300 copper green flounder pounder.  Fish fought like a bag of water and was piss warm when it came to the net.

Hoping the forecast holds and can get a good run in Sunday night.  Would like to get into a few four-year olds before she's over.

Pretty good fishing Wednesday evening off Manitowoc as a grandson and I were met with bath warm water and a pretty solid Southeast wave.  I throttled maybe 40% to the South about 6PM stopping South of the dome in 50ft..  The auto held into the wave so I started setting going South thinking I'd turn North and go with them once I had our 6 lines set making it easier on me should a fish hit.  I had four rods in when a 45ft. rigger popped wonderbread spoon.  "Decent King" I told Austin as I handed him the rod to only find out at the netting it was a 13# Brown.  I turned North after setting and quickly boated two more browns off riggers and spoons with longer leads at 38ft. and 32ft. down.  We never left 50ft. to 55ft..  Then a lull and at sunset a dipsy spoon set 3 out 85ft. took a planted 2 year old.  One smaller King after that off a 40ft. rigger and that was it 5 for 5 pulling lines about 8:15PM..  Talked to two boaters with down probes who told me that there is much cooler water down 60ft. but things seem to change almost daily.  Only the larger King had bait.  Good luck.
