Went 6 for 7 this morning between 2 of us, 13lb king, 3 steelies, 1 7lb laker and a coho. King smashed a 110 loc dipsey with mag bloody nose, steelhead came on 3 Color coho rig and 5 color with a standard Sunkist UV. Laker came on 4 color flasher/fly. Lost a steelhead on 5 color/Sunkist when it jumped. Caught fish all between 90/170FOW south of nets, there was no magic number. Stayed out a bit longer than we should have and the ride in took over a half hour in 3 footers with a 5/6 thrown in.

Report is form 06/17

Motored out from the Two Rivers pierheads around 4 PM and set up in 120 fow on a ESE heading.

Had 7 rods set by 4:30:

2 downriggers 

80 feet down with custom white flasher, mirage uv glow fly.

105 feet down SWR Mag Blue Knight

Stacker at 50 foot, Mag Dancin Anchovy

2 Slide Divers

140 LOC, White flasher, custom LBB glow fly.

220 LOC dodger with Mag Atomic Melon.

2 Lead cores

3-color, Mag Glow pearl spoon

6 color, Mag Milwaukee Minnow

Ended up going 10 for 10. They were definitely hitting the baits hard, I always add some pro-cure gel either alewife or smelt scent.

5 coho, 3 kings, 2 steelhead. 

2 four year old kings (17 & 19 lber) both came on the rigger down 80.

Other rigger with stacker picked up 3 coho.

One steelhead on the slide diver with FF.

The rest came on the Leadcore.

Found our most active fish in 170-210 fow, no boats were near us. All but one fish came on a north/northeast troll. Best action was from 7-8:30 when we pulled lines. Other anglers I talked to at the cleaning station had 1 or 2 fish. I think this was because the majority of boats were all fishing the same depth of water 90-130 fow, lots of boats out=spooked fish.

Great evening on the water with good friends.

Late report for June 17.  Left Manitowoc harbor at 4:45 am, set up in 65 feet of water and continued to troll deeper.  Set down riggers from 24' down to 70' (4), set 2 dipsy's on mono around 130' and 2 slide divers around 90' with over 100' behind the diver.  All hits came on the down riggers.  5 hits and only got two in the boat.  The hits were light.  Used a combination of flies and spoons.  Hits were on 3 different rods from 24' to 70' down.

Fishing was pretty good for us out of Manitowoc Thursday evening.  Moderate chop but the auto held which is a concern with two youngsters along.  A grandson and buddy came along I started setting up in 60ft. and had 8 lines set by 85 ft. only running two side riggers to keep the middle open for a netting.  Ended up we didn't need the riggers or dipsies as all our hits and fish netted came off high stuff and birds.  A nylon mono back 110ft. and 3/8 stopper took two fish and my 3 color took a bow.  All other 8 or 9 hits came off mono high lines with 1 1/4oz and 2 oz weights peanut flies and short set backs.  One fish kept the youngster busy for 10 minutes with a 600ft. run and peanut but the small hook couldn't hold.  Both kids were more than happy and so was this Old Man.  We never got deeper than 120ft. and tried to work two waypoints.   Good Luck.

Cohos are in tight schools just now. If you find one keep hitting it again and again. Caught a 2 man limit today: 1 king, 1 bow and 8 coho. Coho rigs with purple/gold/black or aqua peanut flies did most of the work on 2, 3 and 4 color leadcore. Also a white flasher with a little boy blue fly run on a deep dipsy caught 3 - 180 LOC set to #1.

Our school was in 165 FOW straight east of Manitowoc all within the same 1/4 mile.

Still some very good action in the 80-200 foot depths around the nets this week. Not as fast action with the full moon, strong current, and shifting weather and heavy boat traffic, just have to keep moving around to stay on top of the fish. A mix of Loner peanuts and UV spoons on top and 40-60 feet down seem to do the best but no pattern from day to day. Have to see how the storms will move things around, a few more kings staring to move in and plenty of bait fish to draw them in.
