I was out at 445-11. Went 1/2. In the dark I set my rigger in 125fow and 65 down. FF a little blue boy fly and hot spot flasher. Rigger went the first 15 min and that was it. Nothing else other than a bump at about 10 am. Awsome day though. I ran spoons and flies but nothing went.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the people including charter captains that take the time to post reports and pictures. everyone that posts these reports to my knowledge are very good people and very good fishermen, I hope that you guys understand that everyone is frustrated with this season. Please keep the reports coming you guys are the best.

gun_kid better luck next time to you and the other charter boats i guess i use the its been slow excuse sometimes too. I fished 7am to 12pm with a nice family group that had a blast. Considering I was out there and seen the conditions and the weather, well look at the pictures the lake was flat no wind and overcast all morning as the pics show and the sun came out late morning. Here is another picture for you of the kids fighting fish and here is a picture of my afternoon trip from yesterday. Good luck next time man but not cool to call a captain out.

Went out this morning after storms passed. Was a little rough out of the S.E. managed 6-13. 170-270ft. was a good depth. Riggers and dipsy's with flasher fly combo worked best. Charters came in with better catches today than the past few days.

Late report from Saturday AM. Thanks to the guys who helped me figure out the launch routine in Port. Usually fish Algoma, but visiting family so decided to bring the boat and try Port Washington with my bro-in-law and his brother from 0500-0930. Fishing was slow, but I have had that all season up north with cold temps. Fished outside the main group of boats in 140-150 fow and went 4-4 with 2 nice kings, bow, and coho. No other hits. Riggers down 80 and 95 took a king and bow on ff and dipseys/spoons back 150 took the coho and other king. Real warm temps all the way down after it was cold all the way down all July...weird season. Good Luck.

I just wanted to give a report, we were out yesterday morning on a charter until 10 am. We went 1 for 2 with a 10 lb king. We worked from 80 to 240 ft, when we came in from fishing there were roughly 8 other charters coming in at the same time, all the charters had between 0 and 3 bites. I just wanted to post honest a report unlike some captains on here. Considering I was out there and seen the conditions and the weather, I know that some of the pictures posted yesterday were not from Monday the 18th. All the captains were talking how the fishing has been terrible the last 4 days. Good luck

Wow...! Nice kings Captain N.....couple questions if that's ok? Were they 4 year old and what was avrerage to highest weight?..I have been seeing some nice fish come in between you and A few other charters especially Dan F. I live down here and allways enjoy the harbor fishing and fellow fishing enthusiasts that make this a top notch location. Have u and your clients netted any good copper fish for the smoker yet? I know u were out deep due to winds...and water temp...and bait pods. Its getting close to that time of year and I want to take a few folks out that are up there in years and love grilled silvers and ones for the smoker as well. Thank you for your time and input and postings. Hats off to those that make this post one to check out. Take care.

Fishing was good this afternoon and morning worked 100 foot out to 300ft and back 160 to 260 seemed to be about the best nice to see bait on the graph and hungry kings around it every time we ran over schools of bait we had a king on if not 2 or 4 at a time

Snuck out of work today at 10:00, out on the water by 11:30. Lake was gorgeous, forecast was SW at 10kts, less than 1 foot. Started at 70 fow worked to 150, marked fish, nothing. Wind was now SSE and 1 foot. Ran out to 250 fow and headed NW with the wind. Marked a lot of fish, nothing. At 200 fow the waves were at 3 feet. Somewhere along the way we had 1 fish on and off and caught 1 small King. Now seeing the occasional 4 footer. Pulled lines at about 80 fow, surfed into the harbor, talked to people that said we did well compared to most (WHAT???). One well respected Charter boat had 3. Some days you're the dog and some days you're the hydrant. One thing is for sure, the currents are all over the place. Depth Raider was up and down more than ever, found some mid 50's water down 80 to 90 ft with a strong current out of the south and wind was blasting us in the same direction.

Not sure what to think about tomorrow other than it may storm and will be rougher than the clueless weather forecasters think. Sunday sounds even worse.

Bow season is coming, not too many trips left this year...

Were you guys getting most of your bites up high or off riggers down near the thermocline this AM? I've been running lead up high lately but I'm thinking riggers, full core lead and wire down deep tomorrow. Any help would be appreciated.

Went out this morning in the rough waves hard to get a good troll early. Lake started to settle down went 3-10 couldn't keep them stuck. Water is warm in close out to 150ft. Flashers and flies were key again today. Thanks again to John and Cailey.

Hey guys new to the site. Made the trek up from south of chicago to see if we could get into some fish.

We launched Friday morning around 7 am and by 9 am we had two steelies in the box. One on the surface and one on a green flasher and fly 30 ft down on dipsey. It was slow the rest of the morning but a beautiful day. Around 230 action picked up again. We had the 10 color with a fuzzy bear carmel dolphin start pulling line and ended up landing a 19 lb king. Before we netted the fish the 5 color lead started pulling drag and the fight was back on. Landed a real nice steelie on an orange crush spoon. After about 40 minutes we finally hooked up with another steelie on downrigger 40 ft down with an orange crush spoon. We ended up pulling lines around 430 and while bringing up the swr about 50 down caught our 5th steelie on a green dolphin spoon. 6 for 6 was great since down in our neck of the woods has been real slow.

Saturday we launched at 6 am and met up with some good swells out there. It was tough setting lines but hooked up with a steelie in 80 ft of water 30 down on a dipsey with a bloody nose spoon. Fish spit the hook on one its acrobatic shows behind the boat. Watching my go pro video it must have jumped 4 foot in the air a couple of times. 40 minutes later change the downrigger from flasher and fly to fuzzy bear carmel dolphin and sent it down to 89 ft in 140 ft of water. within 2 miutes of doing that we hooked up with a 15 lb king. After that we couldn't buy a hit. Fished until 1130 and pulled lines. Great trip to a great area. Depths we shied were 80 to 140. 140 ft was hot in the afternoon north east of the port.

Thank you to those who have offered tips for me. I went out this morning from 5-8AM. At 6:02 AM my downrigger tripped and I was able to land a 36 inch rainbow/steelhead. My first in my boat this year.

I thought I saw some thunderheads forming to the West, so I went in, but driving back to West Bend realized they were another 50 miles west of here. Could have stay longer, but could not be happier!

I used pieces of the puzzle from all 3 guys who messaged me after the tough trip last week.

Thanks again!

You smell that? could not get the skunk out of the boat this weekend. fished 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 90-150 FOW marking fish everywhere but not a bite to be seen. Ran flashers/flies, spoons, and a couple j-plugs all at various depths on dipsys and planar boards. Not sure if I need to head out to deeper water or fish deeper in the water column. Lot of guys I talked to said they had very little action this weekend, some said fishing before sun up was better. I caught fish in the afternoon/evening last weekend maybe I need to try that again....
