Jigged for whitefish again lastnight.  1 for 5.  They were biting real light.  They dont seem to be as schooled up in the evenings or as agressive.  I pretty much marked and fished singles the whole evening.  Lost 3 on the way up.  You definately have to baby them to the boat, these come unhooked alot easier than up on the bay.  Fished 100-130fow.  With 15mph winds and two foot seas outta the north put the minn kota spot lock to the test, did great.  I was able to get a 1/2 jig down to the bottom and keep it there until the fish bit or swam off.  Tight lines.

A little late on the report but the fishing has still been pretty good out of Two Rivers. Coho and rainbow have been taken from the surface down 50' on either a Naughty Nesser or Coho Comander from FireFliesWi behind an orange flasher or on an orange spoon. The kings have still been down 80-100' and hitting a blue flasher with a Little Boy Blue UV fly while fishing 100-200'. Get out there and enjoy.

Has anyone been out yesterday or today? I'm debating taking a vacation day from work tomorrow, but was wondering if they were still biting

Had some success Sunday morning going 4 for 5 in 90-180 fow. Fish seemed more scattered after the rain. Saw quite a few other boats netting fish though....


Thanks,

Ace

Speed makes quite a difference regarding depth achieved. Varying your lead length covers more depths and hopefully the fish will let you know which setup is on the right zone. Then I would add another rig to that zone on the opposite side of the boat. Line counter reels are very helpful for reproducing productive setups.

Here is Off Shore's Snap weight dive chart.

You can do a google search for snap weight depth chart and find similar information. Most of them are for the walleye guys who troll slower and not much data for 2.5mph.

Giving it a shot 

I have 6 boards and bought 

6 -2oz snap weights 

n went shopping at Gander  Mountain for bunch of spoons 

now question is 

I know I can't get very deep but if fish are 20' down how much line should I put out to get close to them ??

as you see I'm a bass guy so this trolling stuff is all new to me any info would be helpful

thank you for those of you willing to share with me 


I hope to try my luck this weekend

Another fun trip out of TR on Sunday a.m., going 11 for 12 with 5 Bows, 3 Cohos, 2 Lakers (one released), and a King.

In hindsight should have sacrificed a little sleep and gotten on the water earlier; as we set lines at 6, did well 'til 8, and then really slowed for us.

Worked 60 to 180 fow with no depth better than others. Although if it wasn't a UV Moonshine it didn't get hit for us yesterday; with 0 hits on the 1 & 2 color Yecks, 1 hit on the 5 and 6 color Coho fly set ups, 1 on the f/f on the rigger, and 10 on MS's on 3 & 4 colors and dipsys.

All fish were absolutely packed with Alewives!
