MOON PHASE (63%)
Waxing Gibbous

Launched at 5:30 pm last night and shot out to 150 fow.  Barely got all lines in and coho rig on rigger down 12 fires.   That rig took all our fish ending up 4 for 5, all coho.  Tried everyhing we could think of but nothing on dipseys or lead.  Fished out to 180 and back to 100.  Had other rigger down as far as 110 and as high as 20, nada.

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

Fished 135-185 and back to 80. Out from the towers. Launched at 630pm. Solo. 5 color with coho rig did nothing. Switched to 3 color and nothing all night. Rigged down from 40-90 moving it every 20 minutes. F/F with green frog fly. Took 3 screamer hits all within 250 yards of my waypoint of the first hit. 145 fow. Only one landed was a 27 lber. My biggest to date. Dipsey started with a FF and had no action for 1.5 hours at different depths. Put a chrome hammers spoon on and got 2 coho up to the back of the boat and just couldn’t get them netted solo. It took 3 more whacks, one was a screamer for about 10 seconds and then gone. So needed 1 for 6 or so with 3 fish battling for a while. Still happy about my biggest so far.

Fishing 4 Vets: I run my fish hawk on factory default.  My experience is kings 2.1-2.4, bows up to 2.8.

My guess is once you're past the break wall you're in federal water not Milwaukee juristriction.

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

Fishing the last week has been up and down. Coho seem to be in different places everyday and we have started to include lake trout in our daily catch. We fished all over from 70 out to 240 and its the same story everywhere we went. Scattered and spotty. High coho boards are still taking fish, but is slowing. Dipsys have been best for coho with the standard 00 orange dodger with 2" Blue/Green/ Gold Liz by Hammerflies. We have started to run a few copper rigs in our spread from 150' to 300s They are touch and go but producing a few. Kings have seemed to disappear a bit.....or they are here and are full. LOTS of BAIT around right now. Best 8"flasher and fly combo is white flasher with bullfrog fly. Best spoon this week was UV HUD by stinger. Good luck and see you on the water

If you want flotation for your landing net, I would suggest filling the handle shaft using the "blue" Great Stuff foam. This stuff doesn't expand as much as the "red" can, so it should be easier to fill the handle to its fullest.

I would obviously test this on some conduit or other junk piping so you don't make any mistakes on your new net.

Second Shellfish's idea!  Definitely a good move and super cheap!
