Manistee Sunday July 8th

Recommended Posts

Pat (tangle factor 2) and I hit the water around 9am. We went 6 for 7. We started in 110 fow and trolled out to 350 fow. Best was at 225. Best speed was 2.2 at the ball. Slower seemed better. I had bought two 300 45# copper rods and reels all spooled up from the Outdoorsman at the Grand Rapids Sport Fishing Show last spring. This was the first opportunity I had to use them. We got 6 of the 7 hits on the copper. We ran a UV BTI paddle with a UV blue fly, and a Stinger UV green dolphin on the other. The other hit came on the down rigger with our standard red meat rig with big Al's flasher. Our first fish was the largest 20#. I have pictures with the scale but I left my camera in the boat. Will post next week. Back in Manistee this weekend.
