  4. It could have been.I thought the same thing at first. It had more green in the coloring and the tail is a little different. It did hit the 5 color and jump like crazy. It would be my biggest at 14+ lbs. I never really gave it a good second look just whipped it on the table and cut it up. Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  5. Launched at 3 and headed out past all the blow boats and set up in 200 trolled west to 275 and back into 110 before finding many fish. Had a double in 102 fow. 21 lb king on wire diver on 1.5 180 back chartreuse meat rig and 14 lb king on 5 color with mixed veggie. Trolled north south in 90-100 fow for another couple hours and had another double on rigger down 80 on chrome spinny and green meat rig and same wire diver as before out 166. Both were 17-18 lb kings. Headed for the pier heads and marked fish into 75 fow with no takers so we pulled lines and boogied at about 845.

    Best budget rods?

    Diawa wilderness. I bought about a dozen when i first started and still have all of them. They are bulletproof. You can dind them for about 12 bucks i think. Heavy for dipsy's medium for core and mediun light for riggers. I have been slowly transitioning to shimano tdr and okuma copper rods. Those are also very affordable middle of the road rods. The diawas are being moved to the little tin boat and used as loaners. Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Wire dipsys

    I run 1000 ft wire on 30 series reels no backing. I dont get too hung up on having my line counters calibrated perfect. I just let my divers out a little at a time and use the counter to be repeatable after i catch a fish. Hope that kinda makes sense. Also if running only 2 divers i usually run on 1.5 and if running 4 ill go 1 and 3 on settings. Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  13. Had a chance to sneak out for a couple hours this afternoon. Fished from 3-6 pm. Set up in 290 fow just north and fished east to southeast. Found good marks in 275 -250 fish all 75-90 down Ended up 0 for 3 all on a chrome 10 Inch spin doctor and green meat rig. And one short rip on glow and white s.d. and purple fly. It was a little sporty out there solo. Also looked like some good strong marks in the channel. Saw a few people jigging. Tis the season. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. Sounds like the morning bite was better. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. 2 for 3. All meat. Tried spoons plugs and flies with no results. Launched at 2 and headed up towards rosy mounds and set up in 130 fow. Trolled n.e. into 90 fow before I had first hit around 4 on a chrome spin doctor and green meat rig down 65. Lost a small king near the boat. Trolled north in 90-100 fow and couldn't get anything to go so packed up and ran back South of p.s. about 2 miles and set up in 75 fow and bounced around from 75-90 on a north troll. Picked up a 5 lb. king around 7 on same meat rig as above down 70 and around 745 the 450 copper sang with a chrome spin doctor uv tape with black spots and white meat rig. Picked up a 8 lb king and called it a night at 8. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
