Started setting lines from pier heads south so that by time we have all 8 lines in  we are at or past water treatment plant.

Trolled in 18-20' past concrete wall; nothing; did SB turn trolling north right next to Dimitri Georges in  his awesome C Dory, "Fresh Fish" boat and nothing there..Sea Eagle had just caught a nice brown in 19' so we made another pass south , but 32-28' on SE troll. Got all fish in there on high line back 60', 2 colors and 22lb king came on riigger down 21', 45' back also on J-9 jointed rapala but on medium light walleye rod; what a battle and fun.

Beautiful day, sunny. lazy 2-3s most of the time out of the SE; started picking up around 12;30; small craft warning is predicted for tonight and tomorrow.

Detroit River Wednesday in mate Andre's boat jigging for eyes.

Yes, didn’t realize the fat belly until I put  it on the cleaning table.

Was in a hurry cleaning the fish and should have slowed down and cut open it’s stomach.

It was a planted fish, aka adipose fin had neen clipped.
