Late report from 7/22, launched out of Winthrop but went across the state line and close to Kenosha most of the time. Started around 5 pm and fished till 9, went 4 for 7, 2 20lb kings a rainbow, and a coho. Started in 180' but made a run back to 130' for the last hour and a half or so.

Best rod by far was the 3 set dipsey with double crush taking 2 and losing 2. Swr rigger took a king and lost 1, and 6 color took a king. Rigger with spoon had a drive-by. Marked fish when first set up in 180' and immediately got the bow but then silence for the next hour and stopped marking so ran back to 130' and consistently marking and had quick action as well. King on the 6 color went into dipsey so reeled him in with both rods, and then king on rigger decided he also wanted to give us a hard time and went into 10 color so fought him with both rods as well. Now my fresh 10 color is an 8 color. Seems like water is in the 50s everywhere. Buddy did great the same day in the am but had most action on spoons. Mostly been fishing out of Waukegan / Winthrop with ?good success so that's why lack of reports.
