Lines down at 8 and up at 11:30.  Had my 16ft river boat so the 1-3's this morning made it a bit stumbly in the boat.  Set down by the pump station and stayed within a mile of it.  Water temp was 36-36.8.  River water was 42. Wind out of the SW.  All flat lines.

13-18 all 18-21 inch coho.  Threw back 3 small guys.  Couple on orange or red thin fins.  Couple on brown trout rapala.  1 on a Jr Flutter devil..  Stars of the day were 3.0 mag lips in Metallic orange flame and Copper mine.  Took 9 of the hits.  Could have limited earlier but after realizing the coho were thick we tried the beach for a while for browns.  Lots of nets flying.

Ramps still not in at Benton Harbor.  All ramps in at St Joe

We went 7-8, in St. Joe yesterday, but had to pull lines early because someone (me) forgot to gas up the boat when he put it away last fall. I always gas up the boat before I put it in storage, so I checked everything but the gas in the boat as I was getting it ready for the first trip of the year. Trolled south from the pier heads. Steady action between 18-30 ft of water. Started out with a mix of small spoons, dodgers and peanut fly, jointed crank baits and a wiggle wart, but went to 3.5 mag lips after it went twice. Metallic gold flame was the hot lure with copper/black bill and flouresent orange/black spots also taking fish.

I think we talked to you at the launch around noon?  Or maybe there was another guy who forgot to gas up LOL.  That copper black bill is the copper mine.

Can't be another guy that goofy. Must have been me. Was he in a boat that looked like this?

Look at this way, now you will have a full tank of FRESH fuel?

      11-12. 4 kings, 6 lakers and 12 lb Steelhead. Tossed a small laker and King back. Excited new guy got broke off on a big king. My fault, I did a better job of coaching him on the rest of his fish. Dropped lines in 60' and trolled out to that same 90'-115' area we did so good on Monday and back in to 90' but only had 3 fish to show for our efforts by 11:30. Thought about going in because I saw boats in 50'-60' on our way out, But I decided to head out and started catching fish immediately upon hi
