  1. It was a beautiful day out there for sure. The bugs started to show up late morning. Nice fish! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. 2 for 3, both laketrout, 4# and 6#. Lost another fish (?) 65 ft down in 125fow. Fished 115-140 with a few marks. Lake was flat. Both fish came on a 8" flasher "Hawg wild" with a home made fly "Irish shallow". Lost fish was on a 250 cu with blue holo dolphin mag. Both laketrout came on north troll 2.3-2.5 sog with rigger just off bottom in a 120-122 fow at 7:56am and 8:52 am. Village joined me today.

  3. Good to know about other unusual catches. When I filleted the fish all of the meat looked very good. Thanks Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  4. I was extremely happy getting that rod and lure setup back. I was already calculating what the loss cost me $$$ and had resigned myself to the fact sh*t happens. When it came time to pull up my rigger I was in disbelief (jumped about 3 ft in the air) when I saw the green fly treble hanging on to the rigger cable just above the release. The rod had not released its line during this whole episode. I carefully inched the cable up and grabbed the connection at the SD and rod tip, doing a hand over hand vertical lift until I got the rod out of the water. It was probably a good thing that no fish took the bait during that whole time. I did send the pictures to the dnr office listed on their fishery division with my cell number.

  6. 1 for 2 with a 9.5# steelhead (very unusual looking). Caught on a 6C with a lemonberry mag spoon, in 144fow at 10:48am, west troll, 2.3 sog. loss other in 155fow. I had a rod with SD and fly fall out of my rod holder while I was double handling everything. I thought it was lost for sure. 2 hrs later when I pulled up my DR there it was hanging by the fly hook on the cable. I pulled it all in and saved everything.
