Holland 9-23

Had a great day, decided because the reports from 100-200fow have been  dismal at best .  I decided to Fill the DD3  up and take a long  distance run offshore,  and it paid off very well with a finish 10 for 18 with only one lake trout , the catch consisted of 3 nice steelhead , 1 lake trout and 5 nice coho.  We left the dock around 8 am because im a firm believer the off shore fish bite better later and set up in 215fow and trolled straight west to 270 with only one 9 lb laker to show for it , there was a lot of marks in that area 100 down , just like every one has been seeing in the shallow water for the past month. At this point we made the decision to pull line and make another 12 mile run to 300 ft , at this point we reset and continued our west troll out , we had a fair amount of action but not a lot of fish in the boat , we decided to make a turn back to the east at the 360' area and as soon as we did the action resulted to fish in the box! With two new boat records , one was a 15.3 lb COHO, and the second and most impressive was a 17.41lb steelhead wich will be heading to the taxidermist. We continue to take fish and steady action all the way back to 290' were  we ended the day , as a side note , we didn't mark any fish beyond 300 ft. Here is a list of what worked and our two master anglers!

1) Silver Streak UV Blue Dolphin 90 down on a rigger 

2) Silver Streak UV Hat aTrick on a 350 copper

3) Silver Streak UV Slap Shot on a 400 copper this was by far the best, it took 9 bites and was ran on both 400 coppers 

4) Silver Streak UV Lite Green Diva on a high diver out 200

5) Silver Streak Pink Pantys on a 300 copper 

I did run higher line , heck every thing from a 100 copper all the way to a 400 in 50'  increments but only took fish on the deeper rods.

surface temp out there was 72.6 and it was 64.1 at 95 down  , best speed was 2.7-3.1 down 

And here are the two master anglers, and other pics from the day

Good day for conditions to make the long run. Great job! I don't think they mapped that part of the lake yet? You and La Salle are quite the explorers!

Very nice Terry,    sounds like fun but Nii deep is out of fuel funds for the year and for me that would be a 2-bill trip....

LOL , no , but there was a boat that came into Yacht Basin to refuel that was from Wisconsin, and had a very nice box of coho and steelhead . One of the charter capt told me this.

I'm so happy you found fish, but I'm sad. My 16' deep V doesn't have the courage to go get them..,
