Cohoed? Thats what you say when you loose a fish at the back of the boat?? I fricking love that comment, next time I'm out with Big Dave I'm so using that:))

Was on a charter on 8/14 out of algoma in the a.m. we went 3/7. 1, 2, and 3 year old kings. I was cohoed by a 3 year old near the back of the boat and my brother was cohoed by a 4 year old near the back of the boat. North winds had raised the water temp 8 degrees in the prior day or so. Most charters my captain talked to had 3 or less fish. My captain said that until the water cools down fishing will remain slow. we fished 60 to 130ft. Most fish caught that day were under 100ft of water for most boats.

Thanks for the post Slosh....Had luck this Sat. AM out of Kewaunee. Fished 8-11 as wind picked up and veered from the north to the west making for a nasty diagonal chop. Things looked bad, then around 10 o'clock my 2 color SWR set 100 down with a Bloody nose spoon, popped. After unhooking a king I sent it back again and instantly caught a nice rainbow. There was talk of heading in early because PK had to be back to in time to head to the U.P. and catch a charter for some big lakers in Lake Superior. Before I could start the turn another king grabbed the blue pearl fly on my wire line /pound ball (way back rig) with pearl dodger. Fish were deep in 170 FOW. Three fish in a half hours time....good day in bumpy conditions.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is a dead sea out there. Marked fish all over the graph at every depth, but they are not biting. We tried everything and washed 9 rods on Wednesday and Thursday. Good luck to those that venture out, you'll need it.
