Manitowoc, fished 125 to 75 ft of water tonight. Ended 4 for 6.
1 laker 45 down on rigger.
1 coho diver set at 3 out 27.
1 bow 45 down on rigger.
1 king diver set at 3 out 30.
Other releases were on the deep rigger 90 down.
Allot of debris inside of 90ft.
Spoons were not touched tonight.
Thinking things were a little better out deeper based on what I saw at the fish cleaning station. Maybe those folks will chime in...
Hope this helps get somebody a starting point for tomorrow.
Good luck out there.
Fished last night in sloppy seas that were not predicted in any forecast I saw. Picked up a 2 year old king on a blue dolphin about 30' down, a nice bow on an black/orange evil eye (chuckle if you will) about 35 down in 150FOW. Later got a 25 lb king 80' down on a chrome/green flasher fly in 85 FOW.

Fished out of 2 rivers 6/21-6/25. Very slow Sunday and Monday. Winds Monday evening mixed with rain and gusts Tuesday morning forced a late start but much better luck. Went 5 for 8, 3 kings and 2 bows with best action around 90 ft. Better action Wednesday and Thursday with kings and bows between 80-175 ft. Spoons on leadcore were best, but caught -1/3 of our fish fish on riggers down 40-70 and dipsy’s out 70-90 with spoons and flies on both. Top 50 feet was best. Good luck this weekend!
No worry there are no longer any hets all the commercial fishing is done trawling now. Good luck
Been a long long time since fishing out of Trivers...
I am looking for help familiarizing myself with the nets... how are they marked, identifying beginning and end, current locations, etc. Is there a web page with relative info/rules?
thanks so much!

Fished out of T-Woc Saturday morning, June 20th. Left dock at 4:00 am. I was going to head to 250 ft right away because it was so calm, but after seeing the big boat in 120 feet, I started there and headed SouthEast. No fish until 8:00 am and 200 feet of water and then the dinner bell rang! 8 minutes later, I landed a nice 14.5 lb King. The first one this year. She hit a blue Moonshine spinner fly on an 11" Slimer green and pink paddle! 2.3 MPH at the ball, 2.3 MPH, 72 feet down, where the water temp was 46.5 degrees. I came back around and nothing, so I headed North and at 9:30 I picked up a 4 lb Coho. It was 20 feet down on a purple Pro King. Nothing after that, but it was great fun! I did head to 250 feet and was surprised to find 47-degree water from 250 feet to 50 feet at the 40 ft mark. Its no wonder I can't find more than 2 fish in a trip! Perhaps I am not visualizing correctly, as my Papa says! He also says I only catch the dumb ones! lol Good luck and be safe!
