Started out at 4PM in the Big lake in 50 FOW. Not marking much, heard of some take at 60 FOW on spoons. (This time of year...spoons?) Noted boats in closer, decided to have a look around (we were playing with new flashers and such). Noted a couple fish on, decided to go Old School. Hoochies on Dipsys, glow spoons on riggers. It was Combat Fishing Central in the breakwater arms and just outside them. Building seas. Hooked one on a Dipsy at dusk, but it got in the rocks by the North arm and broke off. Almost immediately after, One of the riggers went off. 21# King. Made a couple more loops with nothing- decided to recharge the glows and re-scent, pull the other Dipsy. Dropped one rigger, was in the process of dropping the other (about 6 feet down) when the other rigger went off. Again with the spoons. Ended up being a decent size channel cat, and while sitting there thinking "Really- another catfish on a rigger?", the other rigger took off. Hadn't even taken the slack out of the line! Only about 6 feet down! Handed the rod with the cat to my brother as it wasn't in the boat yet (the cat hit so hard it pulled the treble through the top of it's head). Pulled him in the boat with the line and landed a 17# King. Made another pass, trolled through the channel. Called it a night.

Everyone out there was very conscious of people with fish on (saw a lot taken) and very gracious. Even the sailboaters were well behaved, and cheering! Made for a great end of the season for us. Gonna try some shore fishing and Whitefish when they come in...

Here's a tip for scent (as the new Baitmate bottles are horrible...). Get one of those Misto olive oil sprayers (10 bucks at your local supermarket). Works fantastic!

Good fishing guys! See ya here next year! Fish on!
