Arrived at the Manty dock around 2:00 PM Friday  8-23, unfortunately were greeted by building white-caps from the NE.  Ran north along the shore until we hit the TR harbor, then took a 90 degree heading and set up in 220.  Ended up trolling with the waves until sunset, ended up ~ 6 miles south of Manty in 120.

Put a nice ~ 12 pound rainbow in the box on a spoon down 80 on a rigger in 145 about straight out of Manty.  One ~ 5 pound bow on a 5 color orange spoon in ~ 180, lost a similar fish on a similar 5 color rig same depth.

About 67-68 on the surface everywhere.  Ran probe rigger down from 45 to 55 most of the trip; probe temperature varied from 50 to 63 at that depth.  Once we got inside of 145, the temp. 55 down stayed above 60 degrees.

As we were on the home stretch going from 140 to 120, ran into a gob of ~ 10 inch Kings.  Released as quickly as we could.

All hits on spoons.

Sea flees pretty bad, gobbing up the riggers.  No issues with copper and lead core.

Saw no other trailers in lot at Manty, or boats out of Manty.  Looked like one boat out of TR, working a similar depth as us (180-ish).

Great afternoon/evening with good friends, fishing less than stellar.  Enjoyed some fine pizza at The Buffalo before heading back home.

Will be back at it again, not sure when.  Time to take a long boat ride out deep I think...

Made an evening trip out of TR last night setup just north in 90ft and worked out to 150ft. Ended up 3 for 3 1 laker, a hot rainbow that hit a dipsy only 65ft back and put on quite a aerial show and a 26lb king on a rigger 60ft down. Beautiful night on the water all fish caught between 90 to 130ft of water. 70 degree water on the surface.

Appreciate the reports.  Have a crew lined up for Friday, will be two weeks since last time out.  Starting to wonder if I should be driving further north before dumping the boat in the water............

Went yesterday and had about the same bad luck.  Only had one on and a couple more releases.  Didn't mark many fish.  Those I did mark were all between 40 and 55 feet down no matter if I was in 80 feet or 300.

Got out a bit late but hit it hard from 6:30am - 10:30am.  Foggy conditions out past 200 feet, calm conditions. No hits in four hours and I got tired of removing all the water fleas from the lines.  Kind of disappointed about the lack of action this year.  Tried flies, spoons, J-plugs but nothing. Fished from 200-400 fow.
