A great weekend out of Sheboygan, at least Friday and Saturday morning until the huge winds came. We found fish in 100 to 130 fow. We caught fish from the top down to 90 down. It was all on F/F combos, we did try spoons with no sucsess. We took fish on 2 & 3 color lead off boards, dipsy's up high, downriggers and flat lines at all depths, good luck to all ....

Report from Friday, fished 7:00am - 1:30pm. No fish till 11:00. We started in 70fow on northeast troll out to 110 and turned north for a while, bad troll into waves, poor trolling speed control. Turned and trolled south, better troll control. No action till we were about straight out from harbor, 90fow and had to turn out to avoid nets. Trolled east southeast skirting the net flags. We hit fish almost immediately after the turn, trolled out to 200fow and made turn around back over same path. East troll was better than troll west. We ended up 13 for about 25/30. All coho but, one steelhead, A lot of swings and misses.
Top producers were: Everything on small red Jensen dodger with peanut fly, aqua, green/Oz and green/cracked ice. I tie all my own using flashabou and Polar flash.
Small fire red Walker dipsey dialed at 3 out to 45, maybe 15
Boards with 1oz bead chain weight or snap on, 75 -100 feet out.
Nothing on rigger.
We ran spoons and nothing on them, mainly steelhead stuff. Tried some cranks and spoon and peanut fly combos, nothing.
Tried to keep speed at ball (Fish Hawk) around 1.9-2.0 knots. Not easy yesterday.
I am fishing coho, just coho.
Question is were they just not biting or were we just in not over fish till 11:00. My opinion on clear full moon, good bite before and just after day light. Than they shut down for a while. Seems like they were shut down a bit longer.
I know for sure you can't catch them if you aren't over them.
Still trying to figure out these nets. I like open water.
Hope this helps.

Went out on friday 6/2 at noon. Ended up with a solo limit by 4 of all coho. The bigger fish seemed to want the spoons. All but one hoe was over 6 lbs. I couldn't get the flies and dodgers to fire mid-day. I had one spoon down and two flies. Took the first fish on a Mt. Dew spoon and i switched to all spoons, mostly orange. Had a limit in no time. I run a Water Wolf underwater camera in-line on a down-rigger. I finally got a fish to stick on while being videoed. Check it out here, it gets pretty shaky when the fish surfaces, there is a bonus clip at the end of some fish revenge taken out on my camera. Tight lines guys and gals, fishing is phenomenal right now.
