The fish seem to continue getting larger here off the port of Sheboygan. Many Kings in the upper 20 pound range have been reported and a few over 30 pounds too. Yesterday Dumper Dan V came back to our docks with this fish tipping the scales at 32 pounds. We are fishing water depths of 100 to 180 foot since the northeast winds a few days ago. The eight inch flasher fly combinations are working well 60 to 90 foot down on the downriggers, magnum or wire divers and copper set-ups. Good spoon choices of late are magnum Pro Kings or Stingray Spoons on the stackers or leadcore board rods. Big king fall season is just around the corner, good luck fishing!

Went out last night at 5:00. Spent most of my time in unproductive water 175-200. Came closer at dusk and put 2 rainbows in the boat using meat on downrigger set at 70 in 160 fow. Had another bite but lost it. All 3 bites within an hour-all on the same meat rig. Marked a ton of fish from 150-160 mostly between 50-70 feet down.

Went out on a charter yesterday with AA Phoenix...Capt. Steve-John and 1st Mate Forrest did a great job overall, fishies weren't super cooperative but made a good haul.

Went 11-14, with 1st fish likely a rainbow trout coming up and snapping the line shortly after hookset....another good sized salmon came off about 15' from the boat. I honestly don't know a ton about the setups we had on, but know we ranged from 250-325' out, roughly 10 miles from shore, and mostly had white and green on I believe.

Had 3 Kings, 7 Coho and 1 Rainbow in the boat....I brought back 28# of fish to smoke in Madison for the group, would guess there was about that left with the rest of the group. I had most of the big filets but only about 1/3 of the total amount.

Cohos were 6.5-8# range, rainbow was between 7-8#, kings were between 10-18#, I believe...we never did weigh any of them back on shore, did measure two of the kings at 36" and 34".

Well it was back to square one with a blow day yesterday out of the northeast. The winds warmed up the shallow water column and moved the thermocline deeper as well. I stopped in 100 feet and probed the water and found 52 degrees down 80 and also marked some fish. Not terrible but wanted to go a little further so I stopped in 140ft and started fishing. Got hit by a big king right away on a rigger set at 93 feet with a 12 foot lead. That ended up being the hottest rod of the morning. It was a green protroll with a super frog fly. We ended the morning going 10 for 17 with 7 king, 2 coho, and one rainbow. The water down 93 feet in 140-170ft read 40 degrees. The thermocline around 55 feet went from 58 on the top of it to 47 just below it. Mag braid divers at a 3.5 setting out 170-200 were good and wires out 110-130 as well on a 1.5 setting. 300 foot copper rods took some bites as well but no touches on the 200 copper which would be riding on the warm side of the thermocline. 2.5mph speed on gps both directions did the trick. Got bites on chrome and white flashers as well but green blades were the hottest this morning! Looks to be a great forecast for the rest of the week! Good luck!

a harness device similar to a fly rig inteneded to be ran behind a flasher.The head of the rig holds a herring for scent and is followed by teasers and hooks. Google it and lots of pictures come up. Smile

I was using a friends 'Walleye Board' last week. It was red and is showing some wear. I usually use an offshore brand board and I had the walleye board clipped to the line wrong. I tried to retrieve it but it was getting too dark. I already bought a replacement for my friend and I have to say that when these boards are secured to the line correctly, they work pretty well. Kudos for posting your 'find'.

Toddj:

A while back I lost an old orange Church planer board while fighting a large Chinook in big waves. All of mine have my name (Mark Leider) and phone number on them, but this old one may not have. Anyway, I commend your effort to find the owner. I'm at 920-918-3309

Fished Coho Derby Super tournament on Max'd Out this weekend and finished in 9th place. Fished 375-450 a little South of town. Action out there is almost nonstop. Wire divers with flasher/fly out 145 and 181 were the best but downriggers's with very short leads between 43 and 73 were good as well. Once the sun got up these were switched to meat rigs. We had a problem sticking the 4yr olds but they are there.
