I’ve been on the water every day this month except yesterday. This year’s fishing has been simply amazing. This morning we shot out to 50 feet of water and the action began immediately. We caught a rainbow, some cohos and some nice king salmon. There was no pattern today at all. We caught fish on the surface with j-plugs behind planner boards as well as 30 feet deep on pro-king spoons. The water temperature was much cooler today than it had been for the past week.  Watch a short video of some of todays fishing action.

I don't believe there is any "best charters", it all depends what type of experience you're looking for. Some are more corporate, some offer more personal customer service, some are bigger bridge boats, some are smaller sport fishing boats. I would recommend picking a boat similar in size and lay out to yours because they all fish different.

You might be just as well off trying to do some ride along trips with other Lake-Linkers so you can see multiple set ups.

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

We were out on Sunday and chose not to deal with the traffic and set up in 85 FOW of water straight out. Early on, We had the riggers working. Rigger 69 Down with a KitGlow Flasher and Rapture Gloceana Fly were good taking a couple kings. Warrior Green Alewife Spoon 59 down on the other rigger took some hits as well. As the sun came up the riggers slowed down for us and the action moved to the 200 coppers and Mag Wire Divers 161 out. Spoons with any type of green frog pattern were working well here. Finished the morning 10 for 11. Kept 6, tossed 4 back , and lost one. Biggest was a 16.85 pound King.  It was a good morning on the water.


Tight lines, and be safe.

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

5-7 on Sunday morning (4:00am to 10:30am).  Was a pretty non-active day meaning that all of the strikes were really spread out and we couldn't get on an active feeding school of fish.  I'm guessing that this was the same for many other boats as it appeared as if people were really spread out fishing from 30-200fow.  We witnessed only 3 fish being netted and the fish cleaning station resembled our suspicion that it was a slow day.

Onto what worked...

-Small coho on glow spoon, downrigger down 35 in 55fow in dark

-Missed fish on big als/brads, downrigger down 40 in 50fow in dark

Big break, no fish till 7:15am.

-Nice bow on stinger spoon, dipsey 3set 100loc in 95fow

-Coho on big als/brads, dipsey 1.5set 95loc in 110fow

-Missed fish on thunderstick, 3 color in 120fow

-Coho on stinger spoon, dipsey 3set 100loc in 110fow

While we were picking up getting ready to leave...

-Coho on big als/brads, downrigger down 80 in 90fow

Sticker, 5 miles south.  North net is furthest out in about 90ish fow.  Next anchor flag is inside that.  Appears to be only a couple nets to the south, for now. Was down that way today.

Go to the NOAA website, put in Sheboygan as a location, scroll down to the bottom and click on nearshore forecast. It give wind directions and wave heights. I've found their predictions to be pretty accurate

Good morning fisherman,

Just a question. I see strong winds straight out of the west this afternoon and then dying down this evening to about 10mph and switching to NW and eventually North around 8 am tomorrow. Just curious how rough the big poind would be early around 4am til 8am tomorrow with W and NW winds? probably wouldn't go out much past the 110 ft depth. I have an 18'6" glass boat but don't want to come over if it is too bad.

Thanks for any advice/info.
