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.

Late report:  We went out Saturday out of Manitowoc.  Landed right on them.  Schools seemed tighter today.  Unfortunately with the wind we could not circle around to keep on them.

We went 12 for 12 caught  fish 90 to 130.   Fish seemed to be deeper early and in high lines did it later in the day.

OO  dodgers were a bust.  They were on fire last weekend but today it was 6 inch spin doctors and anything UV. 

Only spoon bit was on dipseys right next to the boat.

Water is warming up fast, I think it will push the fish out deeper

I was out of Manitowoc Wed. & Friday evening.  Wednesday almost dead flat and the fishing wasn't much better landing 2 coho, my buddy was happy with 2 grillers.  Friday night my son and I found some active fish and things really heated up.  Things started with 2 high line hits both off then things got better going 8 for 12 by dark.  I had 9 lines set at 6PM in 100ft. and stayed between that and 120ft.. all night.  Sometimes you get lucky and hit a school of feeding fish and that seemed to be the case Friday as each time we went through the couple waypoints we marked things seem to happen.  Only 1 spoon bite the other 11 came off 00 dodgers or 8" bechholds pulling flies.  Black/copper, purple and double aquas were good.  Nice to have that coho bite as there were years I netted only 2 or 3.  Mono dipsies out 80ft. got slammed; the only deep hit came off a 72ft. rigger white bechhold and double aqua fly.  Most of the fish had bait inside with the bow having a bunch of bugs and an alewife.  2.4 to 2.6 GPS was good and surface water was 55.  We ended with 3 nicer Kings, 4 coho and a bow.  Good Luck.

Tough outing this morning... 2/3 all steelhead.

Ran due South out of TR about 5 miles and setup in 80fow. Picked up one within 20minutes on a green and black spoon slider with the main bait down 75.

Next fish hit the same spoon in about 70fow with the main bait down 68.

The last fish (lost) hit an orange and silver spoon on a pump with a 3oz out 80 on the board in 45fow.

Trolled South to start until the waves and wind got tough to manage and then ran North with the waves and got progressively shallower.

This is my first log in, im doing a test to see that everything is working good.  I typically go out of Kewaunee and have had good success working the 80 to 98 fow just past the can outside the harbour.  3 days ago I caught a 31 inch King and two bows using moonshine blue jackel lures 5 feet off the bottom.  Last two times was tough because of the almost full moon and clear skies all night long, I fish mornings.  Water temp at the surface was 46 degrees.  Lots of baitfish on the bottom, and lots of fish showing early around 4:30 am but hard to get a bite because of the clear skies all nite.

Rainbows are generally a day bite.  I find they turn off as the sun goes down.   Kings like the early mornings and evenings.   I have had good coho bites early but I have also been getting them with the bows all day long.   I have not fished trivers yet this year, however.    I have been fishing Sheboygan and south.    Generally, I go fishing when I can.   If it is in the middle of the day, I go for bows.   If early or late, I target kings.     Your lures will not work in your garage..... That I am sure of.

As a quick example, I fished last friday from 1 until 5, because I could.    I came in with 7 fish.    Wednesday from 3 until 8 I came in with 6.   Not great, but about 1.5 hits/hour on average (some misses).  (Those trips were out of Sheboygan, 130-190FOW, 1 to 30ft down)

Looking for general info, is there a daytime bite to be had or is it just a early morning thing? I know the best is probably early, but i don't do mornings, and typically have to make sure weather is good. Im not running a big boat and take my young boy with. Last year I had everything lined up, good weather no wind the cam looked beautiful. We loaded up and took the 1-1/2 hour drive and rolled into town in a white out, spent 3 hours around town and ended up going home.

1 for 2 this morning, 6 lb steelie hit deep rigger with flasher fly. Lost another fish that hit while reeling in 4 color to head in. Marked piles of fish where we've been doing good just couldn't get them to bite.
