  1. I think this was the most boats I've seen this year. We ended up 4 for 5 with three lake trout and one throw back salmon. Started in 80 fow and worked out to 205 fow. What worked for us 0-1 400 ft of copper mixed veggie spoon----on for maybe 30 secounds---90 fow 1-1 300ft of copper chartuse meat rig green dodger throw back salmon --- 120 fow 1-1 160 ft back wire slide diver silver S.D. with chartruse spin and glow ----140fow 1-1 200 ft back wire slide diver silver S.D. with greem spin and glow--- 160fow 1-1 80 ft down on rigger--- green meat rig with green dodger ---160 fow. Real scattered marks from 55-80 ft down out to 205 ft but nothing would go for us. Heard talk on the radio of some nice salmon being caught ---but in the parking lot everyone I talked to had lake trout and no salmon---go figure--great day on the water.

    Port Sheldon 7/12 am

    good day!! how did you do Wednesday?? I talked to you that morning at the launch I was with the fishwhich.
  3. slow morning for us---trolled until 10:30 for our first hit in 130 fow landed a steel head in 142 fow and missed another fish in 110 fow---covered water from 80 to 170 --the temp at the ball 50 ft down kept getting warmer as the day progressed-- (started at 45 ended at 55) pulled lines at 12:00 0-1 dipsey out 90 feet---- snow princess 0-1 200 ft of copper ------mixed veggie spoon 1-1 dr at 30 down----- red mongolian beef
  4. what was water depth for the lake trout?
  5. Weather forecast and lake conditions matched!! good start to the day. Started in 90fow got one rod in the water and FISH ON---landed it and got three rods set and missed one on the first down rigger---finally got all 6 rods in the water and the 300 copper goes ---small king. half hour later the 400 copper goes and we loose him about 30 ft from the boat--I think it was a good size lake trout. Any way it's 7:30 am and we are 2-4 what a day this is---------------and then we trolled north--south --east --west -- changed our spread up--down --different lures --at 11:30 we had enough-- tired of cleaning cotton sead off the lines--anyone else having this problem?

    Slide divers breaking line

    I'm using the 4 oz weight and the large ring . I tried the larger weight and didn't like the way it pulled. Also i use the rubber and not the spring on the release. All my slide divers are the light bite style. Hope this helps.
