Are there any nets out of two rivers or manitowac? When will they be put out?
The fish are biting off of Two Rivers and Manitowoc. 80 to 120 was good for us. Ended up 9 for 15, lots of short hits. Top for rainbows and deeper for kings. The girls are big this year. when they hit hang on!!!
The fish for us were scattered and we had to constantly move away from the boats. We had a double and had boats move right in on us. So while the Googans almost cut us twice we move well away from them found a school and worked that.
Get out there the bite is hot!!!
Fished out of Manty this morning and had a decent bite. When,t 649 with four Magnum steelhead a Coho and a respectable King. My partner boat cleaned up on the big salmon with four over 20 pounds to round out a 9 fish cooler! Flasher flies in the top 60 feet was the best presentation, with the 200 copper also providing lots of action. 90 to 120 feet of water between the cities was very productive! By any accounts that would be a great day but if you feel as a charter captain that had an off day and you want to vent your frustrations at the fish cleaning station please be advised to keep that to yourself...... You are a representative of your port and your city and hollering at girls is unacceptable! A little courtesy goes a long way.
Took a shot out of Two Rivers this morning. Went 0 for 1, fish hit in 80 ft of water and took a bunch of line before finally coming unbuttoned. Green flasher fly. Was just too rough for my small rig (16'). Finally got tired of being bounced around and called it an early morning. Several more larger boats were working out in deeper water.
Wow. Fortunate to enjoy this trophy fishery Thursday evening.
Left the Manty dock ~ 4:00 PM Thursday 6/7. Set up to the south and in 150, started working in. Around 5:00 PM the 300 copper with a magnum spoon got smoked and the battle was on. Almost spooled us, you know it's a big fish when it comes to the surface with 300 feet of copper after a 700 foot run. Got it to the net, a 27 pound natural.
Worked between 110 and 150, ended 7 for 9 with four kings and three rainbows. All bites on spoons, deep rigger, deep coppers, and 5 color leadcore were the presentations that got bit.
The "small" fish in the picture was 17, gives perspective to the size of the big girl. Amazing trip, great memory with Kid Joe who's moving to sunny San Diego in a few weeks.
Take advantage of this, an amazing opportunity to catch a fish of a lifetime.
11/16 today. Largest fish was 26.4 lbs. Kept 8 kings and 2 coho.
Almost seemed to easy...
Clearly the bite is on.
Get em while you can.
No photo today, we all know what they look like.
Had our group of 5 out with Eric at Cool City Charters - Two Rivers and had an incredible morning. Went 22 for 27 and all big fish. Left the dock at 4:00am and had 8 fish in the boat by 5:30. Kings - 26#, 25#, a few 21-23#, 17# bow, 18# laker leading the great catch.
18 foot boat ? V hull or flat? Fiberglass or aluminum? Flat and aluminum... I wouldn't. V hull and fiberglass sure if you're ok with the rodeo but unlikely you'll be swamped. Also depends on where you put in and if the wind is at your back or coming at you. I put in with terrible winds at my back. Stay behind the white caps all day and no problem man. Launch with the wind at my face and holy sh$t hang on for the ride of your life trying to land your boat. In short 10 is ok with aluminum and non v hull if wind is at your back but don't go out far. The rest depends on other factors
