Went out tonight fished 60-80 fow from 5:30-8:30. Went 0-2 With one hit and then gone, on a rigger down 50 with a spoon. The other was on a wire dipsy 80 loc FF. Fought for 5 minutes, surfaced and got off about 20’ behind the boat. Was still fun to get out and try our luck!

I found a samsung cell phone on the south dock this morning at Bender. The screen is cracked and I'm unsure if it still works. Would be happy to try and get it back to you if its yours.
As far as perch I have been out 4 times and limited out 3.The day I didn't it was too windy,but caught 3 small ones.This was off Milwaukee.
Been wondering the same thing as far as the perch used to fish the power plant out of bender pretty frequently and the boils out of Racine and McKinley pier but it's been a few years as my old perching buddy passed away not sure where the boils out of bender are exactly though and would like to give a go again any information would be helpful pm is fine thanks and good luck fishing everyone
Fished Thursday 6 25 from 630 to 1130 AM and from 215 to 415 PM. 2 guys, 6 rods. 4 coho rigs and 2 spoons. Started in 70ish fow and had one coho in the boat in five minutes. Fished the whole time in 75 to 82 fow. Fish came from 16 fow to 50 fow on riggers, dipsys, and boards. Finished 10 for 13 with 2 lake trout and 8 coho. Released the two lakers. Beautiful day on the water.
Anyone doing any perch fishing down at power plant or the boils? If so any luck.
Thanks for any info.

Late report from yesterday afternoon. Decided to follow the rain out of Bender and head south towards wind point. Figured this was best chance to stay dry! Set up in about 70 fow and work out deeper. Never made it past 90 fow. 3, 4, 5 colors with coho rigs all took fish, wire diver about 70 back w FF lost a nice bow dancing across water, and riggers down 50 - 60 with spoons took lakers and coho. Left about 630pm ending 7-10 or so w a few more drive byes. Lost one when the fuzz on the line got caught up in one of the guides, make sure to clean lines!

16 for 18 this morning, 8 Coho, 7 Lakers, 1 King, 3.5 hours, 90'ow just to the South of Wind.
If there is a Captin just wanting to get in and off the Lake quick with a limit of Lakers... boy do I have a set of waypoints for you!
Started fishing Kings only to catch one with a very slow start. Then sun up switched to more Coho stuff and dropped the ball to the bottom and it was Game On in the same location. Amazingly the Lakers were thick. The ball often times just hit the bottom... 2 or 3 cranks and fish on. I got very board with it very quickly. Literally go 50 yards and another Laker and another Laker and another Laker. All cookie cutters, not the big ones.
Coho were fairly steady with one double and a triple just before I left where I lost 1.
1 rigger down 45' white flasher Lbb fly. Coho then pulled it for the below rigger.
1 rigger down 88' white flasher super frog fly. - Laker assenater
1 3 color orange dogger blk/purple peanut
1 Dipsy out only 40'ol orange dogger Lbb peanut - did most of the Coho.

With a new net in the boat we attempted to try something different, went out yesterday evening from 6:30 to 10:30. Thought with the full moon,maybe it would work.
The good, landed 100% of the fish. The bad, it was our only bite all night. 1 for 1 with a big Laker.
Fished 80-110fow, marked lots of bait, a decent number of hooks, just no takers. Laker came on a wire diver about 80 back on a blue jeans spoon.
I don't have a fishhawk (yet) so can't say for sure, but there must have been some good currents out there. At one point I had to go about 3.2 sog just to get riggers to show up on sonar (down about 60). Also had some challenges getting diver rods to match, maybe that was part of the problem?
Same for me fellas. Been a rough rough start of the 2020 season for me as well. Mostly out of bender. I'd say the first for trips had 1 fish total. Then 1 good trip finally, 1 fair and then a big fat goose egg for me the last time out. It seems I'm always a day late and a dollar short. Keep your head high. You're not the only one struggling.
