  1. Started north of Holland before sun up. Picked up a 8lb king and lost one in 85 fow both came on a full core w/ a modified caramel dolphin. Trolled out to 110 and picked up another 8lb king on a 200 copper w/double trouble. Then headed south for some trout. Hit a 12lb laker in 105 fow landed it and immediately took a double both kings again around 8 to 10lbs. Those came on a dipsey 100 back with a blue spin doctor/ blue fly and the other on a full core with a superscrew spoon. Ended up 5 for 6. Felt pretty good considering how the fishing has been.
