Had an epic day out of holland yesterday morning!  22-40? 15 Kings, Released seven coho.  Set up in 90 at 6am on a westerly troll to deeper water, as soon as the first rod hit water they started going.  It took 2 hours to finally get all of our 9 rod spread down.  Worked 90-105 all morning.  Riggers were on fire all day.  JJ Mac muffin Rv on swr down 60 went atleast a dozen times, FF on other rigger 12 back from ball down 70-80 went atleast that many times also. Had 4 rigger doubles with mature fish.   The  300’ s with bloody nose rv & Craig’s flounder Rv were steady also.  Braid divers with spin doctors and atomik flys back 80-120 on setting 3-1/2 held their own also.  

The bigger fish all come 60-80 down. Pulled all my shorter coppers to keep the smalls off.  Best speed at the probe was 2.2-2.5.  Best water temp at probe 42-43.  Top temp was 47.  Moonshines spoons were the star of the show!

Wow! Fantastic day!  I'm newer to this big lake stuff so forgive the newbie question, but what does "SWR" stand for? (" JJ Mac muffin Rv on swr down 60 ")

Wow, what a day!  Great job.  The SWR was hot for us last week too.  It's great getting them on the rigger.  Great job.  Thanks for the report.

Well this is disheartening as I was in the same water sat morning without a bump for three hours. Starting to believe something is very off on my setup. I had riggers 40 and 60 down with spoons and paddle/flys, two dipsys with spoons back 100ish on 2 setting, and planer boards with ddhj up higher for anything down 20ish. Trolled 80-120 changing directions and speed on my gps 2.0 to 3.0.

Thanks everyone.  I wouldn’t of been able to get on them if it wasn’t for all the great reports on this site. 

Lreigler-

i wouldn’t question your setup. Steady 15mph north blow Sunday might of made all the difference.

Incredible! I'm on the wrong side of the lake this year. 

Looks like all mag spoons you were running?

Wow!!! That's a heck of a day. Thanks for the report. Haven't seen a day on the water like that since I was a kid fishing out of Pentwater in the fall with my uncle Bill Alman.
