Some real nice fish finding the cooler the last week. Flasher flies down deep and lead core rods pulling spoons ding most of the work. It always great seeing kids reel in big fish. It's even good to see the big kids get in on the action too. Don't wait to give it a shot. Good luck to all those fishing in the Two Rivers derby starting tomorrow.

Thanks for the reports.  Sadly, I've not been out in a month so nothing to report.  Will be getting after it from home base at Seagull starting Thursday.

Good luck to all.

Warm water has moved in and the winds now make it a new fishing day again. We pulled a 28 lb lake trout on the Willie Bee not to long ago and had good salmon action, but the warm water will change everything as the Two Rivers Derby comes this weekend. Still throwing everything out there from top to bottom. seems the kings have been suspended in 60-80 foot level from 90-120 feet of water. Keep a eye on the water temp website, you find cold water you find fish. There are no nets out off of TR at this time. Good Luck in the Derby.

Good report Tangled.  Wish more people would give straight-forward info that just gives you the honest scoop.  Also, glad the baitfish are doing OK so that the DNR will ease up on all the gloom and doom about the lake.

The Lake really settled down Friday afternoon and fishing was good.  Just put our 3rd of 6 rods in the holder and a 52ft. rigger went off netting a King.  Nothing beats mono rigger fishing for Big Kings in my opinion.  Only five bites in 3 1/2 hours of trolling but nicer fish with three mature Kings and a Bow finding the net.  Riggers 50 -60 down with spoons and wire dipsy  sets down almost to that depth with flasher and llb flies worked.  The Kings were stuffed with at least 2 year classes of alewife and there were many bait pods coming through on the finder.  2.6 2.8 GPS worked and 67 surface almost everywhere 70 to 125ft.   Good luck.

There are currently no nets out of two rivers or Manitowac correct? I haven't been out of two rivers yet and just wanted to make sure so I don't run into any issues. Thanks in advance. Fishing tips would greatly be appreciated. Feel free to pm me.

yes, lures with glow on them work best at night. One of the best lures I used is a blinking J-Plug. You will need a high intensity light to keep your lures glowing. Good luck!

Late report for Monday evening, the 10th.  Fished by myself.  Launched at TR at 5:30, set up in 70 fow and zigzagged way out to 140, the worked back in.  Probably 8 other boats in area.  Marked some bait balls and some salmon, but could not get them to bite.  Ran one rigger with a white flasher and aqua fly at 45-65 feet down.  Subtroll not working so can't give temp at depth.  Ran 50' and 100' copper rigs with spoons.  Changed spoons every 45 minutes or so. Moonshine--wonderbread; Fishlander Blue knight; lexan spoons in kevorkian and blue, others I don't recall.  Around 8 pm in 80 fow caught a 6# steelhead on the 50' copper with Blue Knight.  Speed 2.4 on GPS.  Last 45 minutes I worked the breakwater area with j-plugs.  Quit at 10 pm.  Only saw 2 other boats pull in a fish.

Hey guys just looking for any tips from some more experienced Big Lake fisherman.

I am looking to try my first night time trip. Just wondering how tactics will differ from day trips (other than needing lights of course). Do the fish move shallower at night, Should I favor glow baits more. Any certain type of bait more than another (spoons vs flies etc). Any tips would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance for your help.
