Musky, that skunk stinks! But it does make this noob feel a little better about the stink in my own boat!
I was able to get out twice in the last two weeks for a couple hours each time and have nothing to show for it. Actually, I could pretty much copy your post word for word. The only difference is last weekend I did see some hooks and bait piles on the finder, just no takers.
MOON PHASE (28%)
61° - 65° F
46° - 50° F
3 hours, 2 guys, 0 for 0, 80' - 60' then 90' - 140', nothing noteworthy on the finder the whole 3 hours.
Ain't afraid to post when I fail... Blanked @ Bender. FAIL! This is the second time this year and now I am declaring myself clinically ready for a loony house. Before this season I had not blanked for 3 seasons, n now twice in one season. Send Help! 3 other boats @ the launch also went 0 for 0. This is what happens when you fish other species for a month... lesson learned.

Sorry to hear about your accident. Hope all heals well. If you are trailering it sounds like they are doing better up north east of MKE in 120-130FOW. Read a few reports where Manitowoc is taking multiple 31# Kings. For some reason the tanks are up north and the fishing is much more consistent.

Went out about 830 this morning w wife on a last minute change of plans. As we were launching, lots of boats coming in after the wind change. I was a bit skeptical of the waves and weather and the boats coming in, so we took a short ride out and found clean water and nice temp break at 70 FOW and gave it a go for a couple hours, ended up going 7 for 7!! 6 coho on boards and two color - had to be about 12 feet down, one color didn't get touched until I added weight with same stuff. And we pulled a bonus Laker on a dipsey down about 60' on flasher fly.
I had every intention of going deeper, but being a newbie with a northish wind I didn't want to venture to far out - save that for a later day.
@Sunshine and those who pm me, THANK YOU for the advice! I owe you guys a couple beers or something!

I was the lone kayak this morning out of Bender. I started deeper outside of everyone in around 30 fow. 2 rods setup with coho rigs. Nada for me unfortunetly but the morning conditions were awesome until about 7:30 am. The new yak handled the blow and waves very well as i rode the waves back in from in front of Grant park. So Im very happy besides the skunk. Until next time.
