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.

Went 6 for 7 last night best bite was between 8 and 9 pm, mix of spoons and F/F, no real pattern except everything was up high in the water column for us, the fish we lost was on a ten color,  spooled me then broke off at the reel, if anybody finds the board name and phone # are on it keep everything I just want to know how big the fish was if it's still hanging on haha

Fished straight out of TR last night from 5-10 and went 6/6 with four bows and two kings. Set up in 80 fow with nine lines and didn't get a hit until we hit until 180 fow where we doubled up on bows, rigger down 35 and 6 color, both with green/black spoons. Made a short loop and picked up a third one in the same spot on a dipsy 65 loc, orange spoon. Trolled in looking for kings after that. Found a 14#er on the same 6 color in 150 fow and then decided to pull lines as the fog was miserable, but never had the chance to because both riggers fired. Netted a 12.5# bow off one and 30 minutes later netted a 27# king in the dark to end the night. Long boat ride back to shore through the fog wasn't fun but at least the cooler wasn't empty. Tight lines to all.

I was out of Manitowoc both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.  Fishing was good.  Tuesday a grandson and buddies came along and I had 9 lines set in 195ft. at 4:30PM.  Nothing first 45 minutes when a welcome cloud cover moved in which seemed to turn the fish on and hits were steady until I pulled at 7:15PM.  Top 50ft. got all 8 hits landing 3 Kings, 2 Bows and 1 Coho.  Two and three colors with spoons and wire dipsies out 80ft. to 100ft. were best with flasher fly sets.  We circled 190ft. to 165ft. several times with good action.  Then Wednesday evening I tried to set at 5:30PM in 165ft. and things were busy right off the bat.  A wire dipsy went first orange bechhold LBB fly - a dandy bow.  Reset that and a 28ft. rigger popped orange/green spoon found a Coho.  A few minutes later a 62ft. rigger green flasher double aqua howie fly took a King.  My son and I thought we were really onto something but things slowed but still good.  We trolled to 190ft. and turned West into 125ft. before pulling  about 9:15PM.  We ended with 9 fish and missed three.  4 Kings, 2 Coho, 2 Bows, 1 Laker.  High stuff did not work like Tuesday night only taking one fish high on a 3 color. Riggers and flasher fly dipsies did equally well with only one fish hitting deeper than 60ft. down. The grandkids had fun messing up the boat and my son was happy after getting the Skunk with me earlier this year.  Fish stomachs were pretty full all sizes of alewives.  First pic is Tuesday night other two Wednesday.  Great conditions both nights.  Good luck.

Trolled 100 to 300 ft due east of T R.    Surface to 115 down.  One 4 lb laker on white dodger aqua fly at 50 down.  One hit and miss on blue dolphin spoon 80 down.  That's it.  Marked fish 50 to 110 down but few takers.  DNR doing survey said most boats were 1-3 fish.  One charter had 7 but 6 were lakers.  Slow bite.
