    I think I heard your updates on the radio last night. I also managed a fish when I bumped my speed up to 3.0 so maybe they wanted to see something with a little more wiggle to it. Good job on a slow bite! Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  3. Fished solo from 6-10:30 Finished 0/1. Found good marks in 95 ft. Straight out. Worked that for awhile then trolled out to 150 and back. Picked up a nice 12-14 lb. king in 105 on a downrigger 67 down. Flounder pounder spoon. Botched the net job. Oh well. Nice night for a boat ride.

    That is my general length as well. Some times in the summer I have more success with longer leaders so I was just wondering if spring/early summer shorter might be the key. I guess I'll just have to get back out there and try it. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    What length are you running for your fly leaders? I haven't been very productive yet this year with them. Looking for any advice. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  8. Ok so I lied. One was a coho. Mis identified it in the chaos this morning. I forgot what it is like to drive,net and hand line all at once. I think I need to shorten up my sliders when I'm all by my lonesome out there. Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  9. Set up in 70 fow 3 miles north at 5:45. Trolled South at 2.5 s.o.g. picked up 5 kings all on blue flounder pounder free slider rigger 57 down. Boxed out by 7:45 Sent from my SM-G930V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  10. Set up in 175 fow around 1pm. Trolled out to 205 with just one bump on a wire dipsy out 125. Trolled SE into 180 and picked up 1 on a 3 color with j-11 rapala and 1 on a 5 color Helmut spoon. Headed back out and caught 3 more in 200. Blue flounder pounder down 125 took 2 and a Orange crush down 100 took one. Trolled back toward the launch and called it quits around 645 when we hit 150 fow. Speed was 2.5-2.8 over ground. Hope to get a fishhawk soon.
