Well haven't been out on Lake Michigan in a long time!!!  Had a blast going 6 for 14.  We fishing the evening getting on the water around 4 PM and fishing to dark.  Took a while to get the first fish which came on a down rigger 60 feet back in 80 feet of water using a fly dodger combo it was a 10 pound chin.  This down rigger ended up catching four other fish.  We also had one on a dodger fly combo with a keel weight and that was a ten pound rainbow.   We utilized the Off Shore Tackle SST Pro Mag board and that handled 5 color of leadcore really easy along with another line that had 300 feet of wire.  Get out there as fishing is pretty good...

Ice water blasts in and out! Some good action if you can find the temp breaks. High winds and waves pushing things around fast. Some good action on high lines this week with blue and UV spoons and green and aqua flasher flies on the bottom. Keep moving fast untill you find em. Some nice catches and two guys from Sweden got to see action on the Willie Bee this week.

I reviewed my records and found no substantial difference fishing on the 4th of July. The fireworks are just too distant to affect anything.

Out of Manitowoc however, it is usually during or just after the derby, which can affect fishing.

We ran a morning trip on the Semper Fi Saturday morning, took a 130 heading out of the Manitowoc Pier heads and powered down in 50 fow. Got our 16 lines in the water without a hit...I knew we were in the wrong area. Pointed the boat south east and the graph started looking better around 80fow. We trolled south for about 3 hours staying in 90-110fow and ended up 8-12. Turned and trolled north towards Manitowoc for the remainder of the trip and went 2-2 on that heading. I heard from others that the south troll was best for them too. Radio chatter and other reports from the cleaning station was that it was a tough bite Saturday morning. Pick up your Manitowoc derby tickets and support a great organization in our area.

Has anyone been out the day after 4th of July fireworks? Just wondering if all the boat traffic on the lake and all the noise from fireworks screws things up for the next morning? Thanks
