4 am to 10 am.  3 for 4. All kings 15, 10 and 3 lbs.  Two bigger kings hit Pro King Magnum white glow with black ladder back and then Magnum Blue Dolphin spoon.  Both hit at about 4:45 and could be considered a double. One at 85 down, other 90 down. 150 to 160 ft of water north of Two Rivers.   Blue Dolphin also got the small king at 8:20 am at 100 ft down right east of the north light house.  too badly hooked to release.

Note : Fished the top 60 ft for first hour with no hits.  Went down to 85 to 90 ft, sped up to 3 mph and bang two hits.  Should note we marked tons of bait fish  and many arcs as well 4 am to sun up.  80 to 170 fow.  Then they all virtually disappeared.  Spent the next two hours searching barren water 150 to 220 fow.  Finally found bait and arcs by the North light house 80 to 100 down in 105 to 120 fow.  Got the small king there.

Fished out of Manitowoc this AM. 430-1030. Worked 90 to 140 ft of water. Only 2 bites came on deep riggers 90 and 101 down flasher fly. No fish were boated. Ran baits every 10 ft or so all the way down to 110 down. 

That was a good serving of "humble pie" as my dad would say.

Hope someone elses day was better than mine fish wise...

Still some big fish getting caught out of Two Rivers. Flasher flies and spoons both taking kings in 60-160' with bows hitting spoons up top from 80' on out. We even found a couple nice browns in the 10-4lb range. The fish have been scattered and covering water the key. The better bite for us came in the fog, but please be careful. We had way too close of a call with a small boat without radar running way to fast and not paying attention in the thick fog. Good luck to all those fishing the Two Rivers derby this weekend. Looks like it might be a rough one. Pray the weather folks are wrong. We have just a couple open dates yet for July, and August is about half booked. We have plenty of cool water and right now aren't expecting to have to deal with too much warm water so the fishing should be decent all August as well. Call us if you want to book something.

Yesterday evening we targeted 75-110 FOW just south of town. Found no particular pattern, except that most of the hits came after sunset. Water was 3 or 4 degrees warmer than Sunday w/ 64+ degrees on the surface and 47 degrees down 50.

Caught one king, two bows, a laker and a shaker.  Lost some more. Best bait was a green/glow flounder pounder on a 10 color. An aqua fly and orange/glow spoons also took hits.

Also we found an intact inflatable beach raft.

Late report from 7-11 through 7-15. Two boats and six guys, our annual fish derby. We took home 15 fish and caught 20 mostly rainbows (biggest 10lb) and salmon with one brown. High lines and dipsy's did most of the damage (mostly on orange) anywhere from 80 to 160ft. Highlite was my son catching his personal best 25lb king on a moonshine spinner fly/flasher down 80 in 120ft.

Good luck to all in the upcomeing derby.

Went out of Manitowoc for the first time. Super foggy!  Head out to 200 feet, got started there and never left...    3-5.   One 13 lbs king, 50 feet down on flasher and fly, one 8 lb lake trout, 70 feet down on flasher and fly and one coho on flasher and fly, 40 feet down.  Had a strike on orange moonshine with 90 feet out on dipsy (maybe rainbow) and lost another big king on Flasher and fly.  Peeled out 200 feet and then ran at me and I could not keep up!! lol  Took me a long time to get in at 11:00 PM with the fog.

Late report from Sunday morning: went 3 for 10. Just couldn't keep them stuck. Unlike the typical fisherman, the big one didn't get away.

Aqua and frog flies behind green flashers on dipsies did most of the work. Between 90 and 120 LOC which puts them down 35' to 45'. 

We fished in 90 to 130 FOW. Water temps were around 60 on the surface 42 degrees down 50 feet.
