  1. 5/28 PS PM Sorry so late in getting this out. Hit the pier heads at 6:30ish Sunday night. Starting taking fish in 120-125 FOW, on S troll, 2.8 SOG and Ball. Kept circling back over the same waypoints we took our first couple fish and it worked. In 2.5 hours, 6-7, all spoons(Flounder Pounder with red, with green, mag carmel dolphin, Michael Jackson) 10lb Steel on 5 color lead small coho and nice coho on rigger and stacker, down 80, stacker 15 above 12 laker down 100+ 10lb King on 200 copper Small jack on rigger we gave back Great day as my Foreign exchange student/niece had never been fishing.
  2. I'm heading up this weekend and was wondering if anyone was willing to pass on any reports. Thanks in advance, I'll come back and post once I get back, or live!

    I picked one up there, did yours have an inscription on the handle?
  5. Started on a SW troll in 85FOW NW of the channel. Took first hit in 130FOW, 250 Copper w/Jager Bomb, 4lb Steel, just as the sun disappeared, took another one in 120FOW, E troll, 125 copper, 9lb Steel on Orange Crush. Water conditions were great, still slow out there. Marked a lot on the way back in 80-90FOW all above 50.

    Detour

    Thanks for the report, I think we'll be giving it a go Friday morning. Did you stay in a specific depth?

    Detour

    We actually moved it to the following weekend, but if you would, please let me know the report after you hit it.
  8. I was thinking about heading up the Weekend of May 23rd, is it fishable there yet? If so, are atlantics being taken yet? Any help would be really appreciated.
  9. After boxing out Saturday AM I thought I'd go down and get another limit, not so much. We were battling 2fts and a nasty wind. Fished 15-30 FOW with everything from Riggers, Divers and boards, 5-7:30. The COHO were not there, don't know if they went back south or deeper but not where they were, the cold front and snow certainly changed things up. Did manage to go 2-2 on browns, on little one this nice one:

    Trolling Motor Batteries

    I'm set up on a 24v system but seem to just have a terrible time keeping the batteries charged. I've just invested in a 20 am OB charger, but I'm also replacing the batteries. Just want to know what batteries are recommended?

    Holland 8-10 AM

    I'm speaking more to a bait ball that pretty much filled up bottom to top of my screen.
  12. I know it's late, sorry. Had lines down by 6:30, in 90 FOW, was planning on starting in 120 but hit a screen filler at 65 and kept marking so I decided not to leave fish to catch fish. Just before 7 things got started: -20lb King, down 55 stacker on the DR, Easter Egg glow in 100 FOW -7lb King, out 135 on DD, glow Frog -12lb King, down 75 DR, Carmel Dolphin -5lb Steel, out 130 on DD, glow Frog -7lb Steel, down 65 DR, Michael Jackson -2lb Laker, 200 copper, Orange Crush Had two break off 30lb big game on 180 copper and 125 copper within SECONDS of each other, both were monsters, and you'd have thought I'd remember the drags after that, well.... On our troll in, at 50 FOW had a DD, Glow Frog again, and this time I didn't get my spoon back, IDIOT!!! I think I'll hang signs all over the boat: REMEMBER THE DRAG STUPID!! Anyway, had two rookies with me that had a great time going 6-9. Best water was 100-130. That Glow Frog was hot all day. http://www.greatlakesfisherman.com/gallery/files/2/7/9/8/aug_10th_with_jay.jpg' alt='aug_10th_with_jay.jpg'>
