FISHING REPORT
7/7/14 8:44 AM CST
Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 61° - 65° F Water Temp: 51° - 55° F
Sunday morning by myself 3/5 with 20 lb. king, 5 lb. rainbow and small laker. Spoons were deadsville. All bites came on flasher/fly green, blue or any combination. Started south of town 120-180 FOW but all bites were north of town in 170. Downrigger at 96 took big king. Water temp down there was 39.5. Everything else on boards with 2 color and 4 color.

By the way, this is the 2nd lake trout I've caught on board with 3 or 4 colors out. What are the lakers doing up so high?

A late report from Friday. The lake was flat, so we went long. We dropped in at 200 fow and trolled east. The first hit came in 360 fow. We then started getting bit about every 30 minutes. We thumped a nice king ( 22.2 lbs ) 60 down in 469 fow. The hits all came between 360 & 450 for the afternoon. We ended up going 4 for 7 with bows shaking spoons on 2 color leads. The rest of the kings and 1 coho came 100 down on Pro-King blue uv flahers and green & purple Rapture flys. We ended up coming in early to get inside the gap before fireworks. Good luck to all.

Blitz - copper is definitely becoming the popular choice for its diameter to weight ratio. You can get down huge distances with copper but also need a big reel. Lead is nice in my opinion for getting down in the top 30 feet but is bulky. Copper can be finicky as you need to watch how fast you let it out, otherwise you could have an expensive mess.

One issue with both is that many people will have multiple rods spooled with different lengths of both as you need to let it all out. If you have a smaller boat this can make things cramped.

I personally bring two mono rods and two lead. That goes with my two dipsy and two downriggers. I also don't always have the best luck so maybe I'm not diversified enough.

Sorry for the late report, had a busy 4th of july weekend. Went out on the 4th and went 4 for 5, 2 kings and 2 rainbows on a mixer of flasher/fly combos and spoons. Ran mostly 180'-200'. Also have a question for some of you salmon fishing vets out there, since me and buddy are fairly new to this game we wanted to start running leadcore or copper and was wondering what works better and any tips on using both or either? Appreciate any info, thanks!

BUCK KILLER thanks for the detailed report. We fish out of milwaukee and fishing has been the worst for catch ratio. Fished thurs, sat early morning and both days marked many hooks from 60 to 150 with one smackdown and that was it! The majority of multiple fish marked were stacked on bait. Ive been waiting for some facts on the conclusion that the fish are feeding well and have minimal need in having to search for food and your report supports that theory. Thanks, good luck fishing to all out there!

Friday morning was on fire for me, went 6 for 7. all fish came within 2 hours, was done fishing by 830 Sad Smile mixed feelings!too bad my friend from Wausau decided to head back Thursday night after a very slow day of fishing, only 1 bow all day. So I ended up fishing by myself.

hit water about 4AM... After soaking a couple glow spoons and a blue/glow flasher fly for a couple hours the sun was up and water was beautiful... just no fish in the boat.. Hmmmmm? so I decided to change things up a little and I put on something I love but hadn't caught anything so far this year... Moonshines bloody nose triple fly with a chrome and green flasher went on my 300 copper. I got 2 hits within 20 minutes, so I put same stuff on my orange slide diver lite bite 100' out on setting 3. Not 5 min later got a double on those 2 setups... once I got the 300 copper in, the other fish was out almost 600', got that one in the boat dispite the tangled mess on the floor of the boat with the other fish, rod, net and tackle etc etc... haha! that's half the fun of fishing alone.. I got them both back out and reeled in my 2 color lead and replaced it with a 5 color and chrome flasher and same fly... less than 10 min later it got popped. all 3 got hit 1 more time before I had everything pulled in. ended up with 2 kings and 4 bows (yes 1 went back). biggest was 14lb bow for the smoker rest were all good grillers between 5 and 10lbs. fun morning fishing just wish I had someone else with me... woulda been cool to pull a 2 man limit. fish came in 200 - 300 fow.

P.S. very unusual for me... I was fishing 3.0 - 3.8 sog. with flasher flies??? interesting. I don't ever typically fish that fast unless I am fishin all spoons for bows which isn't very often.

there used to be a area I could go to check the fish report for the piers what happen I would like to know if there has been any action on the south pier since this the only way I get to fish for salmon and the only way I can afford to go Smile

Am planning a trip (600 miles) to Sheboygan. Was planning on coming Friday 11 July but note the full moon is on the 12th of July. Last month I read reports with concern pertaining to the full moon phase and poor fishing. Is their valid concern with the fishing being poor during the full moon period? Thanks for replies.

Fished today by myself from 6:00-8:00 south of town. Started in 90 and trolled to 170 where I shook off my 6th king. Wire diver out 93, 150 copper and 250 copper all took 2 fish each. First hits were in 130 where I landed a triple. Kings were 10-17lbs. Copper setups were pulling meat and diver flasher/fly.

WENT OUT YESTERDAY WITH MY BROTHER UNCLE, AND MY DAD. FISHED IN 120 - 190 FEET OF WATER. WENT 3 OUT OF 4. MY DAD LOST 1 WHEN THE BOARD WENT UNDER. CAUGHT 2 NICE RAINBOWS AND A LAKE TROUT. NICE AND CALM. CAUGHT THE 2 RAINBOWS ON BOARDS AND THE LAKE TROUT ON A SPOON ON THE DOWN RIGGER. HAD 2 BITES RIGHT A WAY AND THAT WAS WHEN WE CAUGHT THE LAKE TROUT AND LOST SOMETHING BIG. A FEW HOURS LATER WE CAUGHT THE 2 RAINBOWS. ONE RAINBOW HAD 20 ALEWIVES IN IT, THE OTHER 1 HAD 10, AND THE LAKE TROUT HAD ABOUT 10 IN IT. FISHING WAS SLOW. HOPE IT PICKS UP.

Finally a flat calm day, no fog and sunny conditions on the big lake! I had multiple boats on the water all week and most days fighting the elements but today sure made up for it. East to west trolling patterns from 120 to 320 feet of water worked well today for Rainbows, a few Cohos, also some Kings too. Very minimal boat traffic but with the big weekend coming up I'm sure many will hit the water. Have a great fourth of July!

For those of you going out of Sheboygan, be aware there are logs, tree limbs, and other obstructions in and around the area. I almost hit a fairly large log on the way in. I also noticed that the nets arent removed yet........ Atleast the marker buoys are still there. Be Safe!
