Out sat am for browns but ended up with a king. Lost one other fish. Got rough so we quit. Waters warming slowly so it won't be long before the Kings get more active.

Torpedo divers with the red or-16 clips and a 12" steel leader are a great way to get baits down for salmon. I use the 8 and 12 oz versions on my kayak - and do quite well. Used these from a boat one time as well and we caught fish.

Laid into the Browns Thursday night, couldn't field a crew for Friday night and I had to be back a little early. Saturday was great until we decided to pack up to go register fish at 1, got back out by 4, Dead Sea. Same for Sunday AM with the exception of losing two big ones... All told I lost count of the Browns, we did manage to swoop up a nice 14.5# King on a flicker shad and a nice whitefish too. A few Browns hit the small dipsies or the riggers but most fish came on the shad type baits anywhere from 100-180ft back...

I didnt have downriggers for a couple seasons and caught plenty of fish. They are still the most effective way to quickly and accurately get lures to deeper fish. Honestly the last two season my riggers were the worst rods in my spread as the fish were in faily shallow water alot of the season and in the uppper 1/3 of the water column alot. Water clarity and water temps have alot to do with that. They have there place but are not a requirement for a small boat guy to go catch some fish. Good luck.

Dipsy so are a great way to go. When I first started that is all I used. Run 2 on number 3 and 2 on 0. Also run a planner board out each Side with snap weights or lead core/copper.

TCF fishing with dippsys is a great way to cheaply get out there. Magnums with fire line will go plenty deep. I've had dippsys do all the catching on days my downriggers don't. You could get a couple boards also with some clip on weights to add to your array. There's also what's called a Slide Diver witch works well. Hope that helps. Stop and talk if you see me at the landing. Id be happy to. Blue Moon is my boat. Cant miss it Cool tight lines.

I have a question for those of you with knowledge of catching kings come summertime. I have a smaller boat (17'6") and currently no salmon fishing gear. There isn't a lot of room for down riggers and I'm not looking to spend a ton of money. If a guy was to pick up a few dipsy setups can I be successful with just a couple dipsys out there and no downriggers or would I pretty much be wasting my time? Does the depth limitations of a dipsy compared to a downrigger limit the time frame that they're effective? If someone could give me a little info/opinion it would be greatly appreciated. Not looking to learn everything you know about salmon fishing just want to know if the smaller investment would be worth my time. On the thread or PM works. Thanks.

I quit fishing that tourney years ago, because they registered a frozen fish because it was a local and of course it ended up being the big fish and i ended in 3rd. Dont worry about that effecting you in kewaunee/ algoma area. But if you are going to fish the tourney fish the bay side from sturgeon bay up to fish creek.That is where i have taken more 12 lb and 18 lb browns from. ANd not fishing close to the shore line. 30 to 80 feet of water. Using just boards no riggers.

I can't speak for Algoma but the odds of the Bailey's Tournament being Won in Kewanee are fairly low I wouldn't think It would add any boat traffic to your weekend

Hey guys, sorry for the delayed response. Thank you to everyone who gave me some advice through this page or that private messaged me. I've gone out a handful of times and my best catch was 4 fish . No monsters , but still really fun. Thanks again for the tips guys. Is it going to be worth going this weekend with that baileys brown trout tourny going on ? Or will it be super crowded this weekend ?
