Saturday afternoon my plan was just to replace two trailer rollers but threw some ice into the cooler and took a few rods along just in case.  Probably looked at the Lake ten times while replacing rollers which had some white capping and a couple thousands waves later found myself in 200ft. 7.7 miles at a 120 degree angle out of Manitowoc.  There I got my footing, turned in with a little better than a 2 ft. roller chop pushing NW, set the auto-pilot, turned on the Brewer game - perfect.  I set two riggers and a larger dipsy deep.  Nothing but noticed a few marks starting at 150ft when at 142ft. both my 68ft. rigger blue-yellow mag spoon and my 100ft. rigger mag green coyote LBB fly popped together - geez.  Luckily got both in by 130ft. of water and proceeding in with no action pulling lines at 100ft..  The large Coho a mature male had forage and the King it's adipose.  A slew of Kayaks working inside the mouth when I docked before sunset.  Cooler water there than offshore.  Good Luck.

Wind & sea conditions allowed a boat ride offshore Sunday 9-24.

Headed a little south of the car ferry line out of Manty, set up in 350.  Worked between 350 and 430, pushing to the north as the waves from the south picked up.

Water continues to be very warm, the thermocline was ~ 80 feet down.  Put three fish in the box, all on the deep rigger, blue electric kool-aid spoon again.  Nice three year old king that went about 12, two smaller ones in the 5-6 pound range.

The shallower depths seemed to be better than deeper.  Hoping for at least another 2-3 off-shore trips.  Some nice fish out there if the wind allows you to take a boat ride, and you can find 'em.

Rather than watch the Packer game decided to go fishing.  Left the Manitowoc pier heads at 3:00 pm.  Took a 120 heading and started in 100 fow.  Trolled SSE into the seas out to 225 and back in to 140.  Ended the trip with with 3 kings and 2 rainbows and released 1 other king.  Fish came from 140-200.

6 color Stinger mixed veggie - 2 rainbows, 1 king

DR 55 down with Silver Streak black/green  spoon - 1 king

DR 70 down with Stinger Diehard - 2 kings 

Tried a few FF combos but never had a hit on them.  Temp break gradually dropped deeper as the depth increased.  Fun afternoon on the water.

Husband and I fished in the river across from the sub in Manitowoc.  Lots of fish jumping in river but only one salmon caught off shore from 4 pm till close (by my husband).  Saw a rainbow or 2 caught by boats trolling.  He used a large krok spoon with glitter fish scale stickers.  I was using same thing, minus the glitter scale stickers, and got skunked.

Went out for a short 3 hour trip today. Started in 100 fow and went SE to 150 then back in to 70 before pulling lines. First fish was a Rainbow on a high line with Warriors "Naked Natalee" spoon in 120 fow. Second rainbow came on a mag dipsey out 135 with Pro Kings "Charlie's Special" flasher and the "Four Play" fly by Black Market in 126 fow. We then lost our 3rd hit after turning around and going back in 130. A 275 copper with Warriors "Lemon Drop" did the trick. Our final fish was a Lake Trout on a rigger down 100 in 100 fow. This fish took a Green Dolphin flasher with Black Markets "Threesome" fly. It felt good to get back out to open water after doing harbor patrol the last few trips.  We will be going for another short one again tomorrow Good luck if you're heading out.
