Spent the week in Sheboygan Salmon fishing. Did two Women's tournaments. What a blast. For the first time I ran wire rods and I decided I love them. Really helps figuring out current when you don't have a Fish Hawk. Caught more kings than ever before. caught fish on on 2, 3 and 5 color, a couple on riggers and several kinds on FF.  Fished from 40 to 240 fow.  Wire rods with dipseys 91 back got the most. Tried to do a few videos but I guess I need a teenager in the house to make good ones, but we are trying. After this one I have a few more to load so if you want to subscribe there are more coming. Trying to get more gals to take the leap and fish big water. I love it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vh77Mb6aaxQ&t=17s

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

You are very correct Flash Gordon. Last Wednesday our mid-day bite was the best in recent memory, on all lures. Yesterday, Wednesday, was the poorest bite in recent memory. We worked all depths from 40-140 fow, for about 8 hours, running a variety of spoons, flasher/flies, plugs, and meat, with nothing to report but a baby rainbow. Many skunks, from both rec and charter fishermen.

The bite was hot early last week, but looks like it's slowed way down.

Fished last night from 6-9 PM, running a variety of flasher fly combos and spoons in 70-110 FOW without luck. Lots of boats out there, but I saw very few fish at the cleaning station when I rolled out. The few I did see were mostly medium sized kings.

Hopefully the bite picks up again after the storms tomorrow.

Went out yesterday and got only 1 coho, was slow according to the radio.   Broke one other fish off.  Went out solo this morning and got the first rainbow as soon as I let the line out and set the rod in the holder while reaching for the planer board.  Nice fish, maybe 9 lbs, on a #4 J-plug "Wonderbread" and 3-color leadcore.

Ended up with 2 more 'bows, one about the same size and one slightly smaller, another one on the J-plug off the board and one from 45 ft down off a rigger and a spoon.  Water was much cooler today and listening to the radio, a lot of 'bows being caught today.  Did speak to one guy at the landing with a 25.5 lb king. 

Marked a fair bit of bait and quite a few good hooks but no bites there.  Stayed in 100 ft or less today, caught my fish in 60 and 70 feet.

Went out this morning in the fog. Went 3 for 3. 80 to 100ft 40 ft down. From what I have heard if you want big kings 70 to 110 ft of water. More fish at 200 plus ft of water. All on spoons today but others have had luck with flasher flys. Maybe for fun might run a j-plug next time out. Only limit I heard of was in deep water. Good job Grant.

Best mid-day bite in years. Pretty much non-stop action in 150 to 170 fow. Flasher/bullfrog flies on slide divers down about 50 - 60 feet particularly hot. Red & silver, and wine & silver pro kings on 6-colors and riggers. Two 20 pounders, good Lakers, rainbows, 11 bites before we had to quit at 1 o'clock.

Got out last night and fished for a couple of hours, pulled lines at 8:15 and went 6 for 6 with one quick drive by.  We had 2 Kings one 21# and the other 23# along with 3 very nice Coho's and one small Laker.  We fished the same area we have been all year Southeast in 130' to 180'.  All fish came on flasher / fly setups 50' down area was the target area.  We did mark a fair amount of bait balls out that way last night which was surprising to see that many.

Better day today. Fished from 4:30 to 9:30 solo trip went 3 for 4. Trolled from 100ft to 300 ft. Got 2 fish in 135 ft and one at 270 ft. Silver eye at 40ft down took 2 , green ladderback down 50 took one. Weird fish location today did not mark a lot of fish and no bait balls. The fish ranged from the bottom to 20ft. Hard to target .
