  6. We were between 80-130 fow Sent from my SM-G950U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  7. Fished from 4-9:30 pm... Lots of scattered marks and plenty of cold water allowed me to get the second skunk of the season... Tough conditions, but we tried! Sent from my SM-G950U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  8. Fished from 7 - 10:30 pm in 120-250 fow... Some good marks and some bait here and there, but could not get anything to go, first skunk of the year! Radio chatter seemed to confirm this was a very slow night... Sent from my SM-G950U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  9. Sorry for the late report... Fished from 5:30 am and pulled line at 10 am, went 3/4 Didn't have a hit until 7ish, even though we marked some fishing bait from the time we started trolling in 75 feet of water until 140 or so. It wasn't until we headed south about 3 miles south of port we found some active fish in the 130 range. Fish hit everything from wire Dipsy 150 out, downrigger 55 down, big rip on a 400 copper, that fish was lost, and the Deep rigger at 95. Oh no it was a good hour of catching, we caught an 8# laker on white paddle little boy blue fly, 12# king 55 down with glow green fire tiger moonshine, and a 11# steel head on wire dipsy, with blue paddle and protagonist fly out 150. It was a beautiful morning and the west wind kept a good shop on the water, but when the fog bankrolled in we called it a day. Sent from my SM-G950U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  11. Awesome! Worth it Sent from my SM-G950U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  12. I had a single copper rod that was hit 2 times in 1 week this past month that I didn't have enough backing on for various reasons - I had about 150 YDS of 50# PP and both times almost ran the whole thing out on the first run - that was the LAST time that reel would get hit - I added about 250 YDS of PP and now - let the big boys hit is all day...use enough mono to start with IF you don't have a little 'post' on your reel seat - otherwise the braid will slip on the spool - the mono helps keep it in place. After that - add as much braided backing so that the reel fills up properly with the copper or lead core after that.
  13. Fished 8:15 AM - 1:30 PM Hit the lake a little late - headed NNW to 125 FOW with some scattered marks - temps were 76 on top and 51 down 90' Stayed on a NNW troll to about 320 - turned back to 200 and headed back to 320. There were good temps and some bait balls here and there - but we could not get things moving What worked: 3 rips on wire mag dipsy on 2 - 175 back with green/pearl SD and white fly 1 rip on braided mag dipsy on 2 - 225 back with glo blue jeans SD and blue crinkle fly 1 on DR - 90 down - glow mag green and white mag spoon - 8# steelhead not many guys seemed to be catching - not sure these fish will ever show up this year!
