We fished both trips today up north. We set up on the Bank this morning and hit a double right away. The King took a magnum Fuzzy Bear Yellow Tail 65 down on an out down. The Laker hit a 10″ White Crush Spin Doctor with a Dreamweaver Meat Head and a Premium Dreamweaver Strip out 110 on a low wire diver. The Yellow Tail spoon went 3 times during the trip. The other Lakers came on a Tin Can Dodger/Yellow Red Dot Spin-N-Glow fished near bottom. We took another mature King on a Natural Glow Captain’s Choice Cut Plug on a 10 color core. We finished up about 10:30 with a 2 person limit. The wind had picked up from the west when we headed out on our afternoon trip so we set up in deep water and made a northeast troll. We rode for a while until we got our first bite. It came on a magnum Fuzzy Bear Frozen Veggie on a 225 copper. The fish hit and was gone. We took a King on a high wire diver out 185 with a 10″ Yellow Sparkler Spin Doctor/UV On Ice Big Water rig. Our trout rig took a Laker down 150 ft. on the chute rigger. We took 3 more trout on the chute rigger. We landed a Steelhead on the Frozen Veggie on the 225 copper and we took a Coho and lost a King on a 325 copper with a 10″ Margarita Spin Doctor/Green Mile Dreamweaver Meat Rig. We also took a Laker on a Yeck Afro Glow spoon 65 down on an out down.

Only had a couple rods in the water this morning up north when a big King hit a magnum Fuzzy Bear Yellow Tail 65 down on an out down. Before we landed our first fish a second King hit the other out down set a 55 ft. with a pair of Dreamweaver Beefeater spoons. We got the first one and the second broke off. We hit 3 fish on our wire divers. Two on a low wire out 100 with a 10″ White Crush Green Scale Spin Doctor/Action Fly Meat Rig and one on a 10″ Black Slick Spin Doctor/Black UV Big Water Rig out 145. We took one on a high wire out 185 with a 8″ Chrome Killer/Green UV Big Water Rig. A 8″ White Atomic Killer/Green Moo Dreamweaver Meat Rig took two Kings on a 250 copper. A 300 copper with a 10″ Chrome Kevorkian Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water Rig went 3 times. A mag Fuzzy Bear Modified Green Dolphin took a King on a 250 copper and a 175 copper with a number 3 Silver Horde Moldy Wonder Bread plug got one too. We took our Lake Trout on a Tin Can Dodger/Yellow Red Dot Spin-N-Glow fished on or near bottom. Running double tomorrow so no report until Thursday. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
We had all our lines set this morning up north and waited 35 minutes before we got our first bite. It was on the chute rigger and we lost it. After not hitting a fish on the Bank we turned out on a northwest troll. Our second bite came on an out down set at 67 ft. with a magnum Fuzzy Bear Modified Green Dolphin. It was a King and we landed that one. We had a pair of mag Fuzzy Bear Ally Cats on the other out down and that was the next rod to go. To our surprise it had 2 fish on it, a small king on the free slider and a Lake trout on the bottom bait. We turned back in when we hit 300 feet of water (fow) . It was slow going most of the morning. None of our hot rigs were going so we had to dig a little deeper into the program box. We took our biggest king on a 300 copper with a 10″ Black Slick Spin Doctor/Black UV Big Water Meat Rig. Magnum spoons were good for us today. Besides our early bites on our out downs, we lost a Steelhead on a mag Fuzzy Bear Blue Educator 67 down and took a King on it. We took another King on a mag Fuzzy Bear Flea For All on a 200 copper. We took 4 Lake Trout including the big one pictured left fishing near bottom with a Tin Can Dodger/Yellow Red Dot Spin-N-Glow. We only took 1 fish on a wire diver. It was a low wire out 165 with a 10″ Net Minder Showtime Spin Doctor/Blue Ice Big Water Rig. We had a tug on a high wire out 200 with a 8″ Chrome Kevorkian Spin Doctor/Yellow Gasoline Dreamweaver Meat Rig but it didn’t hook up. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
Slow start for us up north this morning. We had all our rods set before we had our first bite. It came on a 300 copper with a 10″ Chrome Kevorkian Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water Meat Rig. A low wire diver out 120 with a 10″ Green Holo Slick Spin Doctor/Green Gasoline Dreamweaver Meat Rig took our second fish. They were both Kings. Then we just picked away at them. We took 4 Lake trout on our chute rigger with a Tin Can Dodger/Yellow Red Dot Spin-N-Glow near the bottom. We hit a couple more kings on the Bank before we put it on a 250 troll and worked out to deeper water. We didn’t find any particular band of water that seemed to hold more fish. We would just get a bite every now and then. We took Kings on a 250 copper with a 8″ No See Um Purple Holo Spin Doctor/4th Of July Big Water Meat Rig, a 300 copper with the Chrome Kevorkian/ Green UV Big Water Rig, and a 250 with a 8″ Kevin’s Girlfriend Spin Doctor/Green Mirage Dreamweaver Meat Rig. We took a Steelhead on a 175 copper with a number 3 Chrome Redhead J-Plug. Our hot set up today was the low wire diver with the 10″ White Green Holo Slick Spin Doctor/Green Gasoline DW Meat Rig. It went 4 times and took the 33 inch Master Angler Steelhead pictured left. It fought like a big King. We were all surprised when it came to the net and we saw it was a Steelie. We took it to Captain Chucks and registered it for a Michigan Master Angler Award when we got back to shore. Only 1 spoon bite. A King took a Mag Fuzzy Bear Blue Educator spoon 70 down on an out down. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
We got off to a good start this morning up north. Our wire divers were hot and we got a couple plug bites. A high wire out 145 with a 10″ Mountain Dew Slick Spin Doctor/4th of July Big Water Meat Rig went 3 times. A 10″ White Crush Green Scale Spin Doctor/ Action Fly Meat Rig out 100 went twice on a low wire and a 10″ White Slick Green Holo Spin Doctor/ Action Fly Meat Rig went once. A Green Ladder Back Captain’s Choice Cut Plug took a big King down 40 on an out down. Our only copper bite during the early flurry was a number 3 Silver Horde Moldy Wonder Bread on a 175 copper. When the dust settled we had 6 mature Kings in the box. We made a turn and went on a south troll. We went a little over 3 miles and only took 1 fish. It was a good size Lake Trout on the chute rigger with a Tin Can Dodger/Yellow Red Dot Spin-N-Glow. We couldn’t take the lack action on the south troll any longer so we turned out on a 250 troll. We hit 3 fish in very short order. We lost a big fish on a mag size Fuzzy Bear Blue Educator down 65 on an out down , landed a King on a high wire diver out 165 with a 10″ Yellow Sparkler Spin Doctor/UV On Ice Big Water Rig and landed a Trout on our Tin Can on the chute rigger. We took 2 king on our 300 coppers. One had a 10″ Chrome Kevorkian Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water Rig and the other was on a 8″ Chrome Kevorkian Yellow Gasoline DW rig. We took another King on a 250 copper with a 10″ Yellow Sparkler Spin Doctor/UV On Ice Big Water Rig. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs a Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
We got off to a slow start again this morning up north. We were all “plugged up”. We had them on 3 cores, 2 coppers and one out down and we never had a plug bite. Our wire divers went several times early but we had trouble getting them to stick. Our high wire diver out 167 with a 10″ Blue Bubble/ Glow Blue Bubble Action Fly Meat Rig went 4 or 5 times and we never landed a fish on it . A low wire diver out 145 with a 10″ White Crush Green Scale Spin Doctor/ Custom Dreamweaver Meat Rig took 2 Kings for us. We pulled all our plugs except for a number 3 Moldy Wonder Bread Silver Horde on a 175 copper and replaced them with Spin Doctors and meat rigs. The 175 copper with the number 3 plug has went at least twice each day the past few days but didn’t go today. We took 3 Lakers on a Tin Can Dodger/Yellow Red Dot Spin-N-Glow off our chute rigger. A high wire diver with a 10″ Mountain Dew Spin Doctor/4th of July Big Water Meat Rig went twice, once at 145 and again at 185. Our only copper bites came on a 300 with a 10″ Chrome Kevorkian Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water Rig. We took 2 Kings on it. The biggest is pictured left. We took a big Steelhead on a regular size Fuzzy Bear Green Dolphin free sliding above a magnum Fuzzy Green Dolphin set at 65 feet on an out down. Our last fish came on a 10″ Yellow Sparkler Spin Doctor/Yellow Gasoline DW Meat Rig out 200 on a high wire diver. We fished the Bank early and then moved out to deeper water. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
Fished north today setting up off the bank. Seems like there’s getting to be more boats up there every day. I’m sure the boat traffic is going to get worse before it gets better. We hit out first fish on a number 3 glow plug on a 175 copper rod. We caught a small Trout on our chute rigger just off the bottom but it was a little too small so we threw it back. Had one more throw back Trout before we took a second King. It hit a low wire diver out 135 with a 10 ” White Green Spin Doctor/Custom Dreamweaver Meat Rig. It was quite a while before we had another bite. We rode all the way to the 06’s without so much as a nibble. We turned west in the 06’s and caught a nice Brown out 120 on a low wire diver with a 10″ White Green Holo Spin Doctor/Pickle Sunshine Action Fly Meat Rig. We no sooner got the Brown in the boat when a high wire diver out 145 with a 10″ Mountain dew Slick Spin Doctor/4th of July Big Water Meat rig got bit by a good size King. We got that one too. We took 2 Lakers on a Tin Can Dodger/Yellow Red Dot Spin-N-Glow bouncing bottom with our chute rigger. We took our last 2 Kings in a little over 200 feet of water. One took a 300 copper with a 10″ Chrome Crush Glow Spin Doctor with Green Dots/Froggie Dreamweaver Meat Rig. The other came on a high wire diver out 185 on the 10″ Mountain Dew Slick Spin Doctor/4th of July Big Water Rig. We ran the 10″ Blue Bubble Spin Doctor/Blue Bubble Action Fly combo that took 4 bites yesterday on a high wire diver for a while today and it never had a hit, go figure. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and use Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
Good fishing the last two mornings in Ludington. We ran an afternoon trip last night and we hit some fish later in the evening, but it was slow going the first couple hours of the trip. We fished north on all three trips. Our hot rod yesterday was a 10″ Mountain Dew Spin Doctor/4th of July Big Water Meat Rig. It went a total of 6 times counting both trips. Four times out 185 on a high wire diver and twice on a low wire diver out 135. Today we only took one fish on it 185 out on a high wire. We had a 10″ Blue Bubble Spin Doctor/Blue Bubble Action Fly out 200 on a high wire diver go 3 times this morning. Both our out downs went today. One at 58 ft. with a 8″ White Crush Spin Doctor/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly Rig and the other with a pair of glow spoons 65 down. Not much action on our cores & coppers today. We did have a surprise when we landed a nice King on a 400 copper with a Tin Can Dodger/Yellow Red Dot Spin-N-Glow. The top picture is todays catch. Yesterdays morning trip is in the middle and the afternoon trip is on the right. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
We headed back north this morning setting up on the Bank. We had two wire diver bites that didn’t hook up and we weren’t seeing much on our screen so we headed out to deeper water. We took our first fish on a high wire diver with a 10″ White Green /home made Action Fly meat rig out 135. That rig went twice for us today. Our other high wire diver with a 10″ Mountain Dew Slick Spin Doctor/4th of July Big Water Meat Rig went 4 times. Three times at 180 and once at 185. This is the same rig that was so hot for us all last week and never went once yesterday in the tournament. It picked a bad day to go cold for us. Anyway it was working good today. A 10″ Kevin’s Girlfriend/Green Mile Big Water Rig went twice on a low wire out 90 and a 10″ White Green Hollo Slick Spin Doctor/Green Uv Big Water Rig went once at 110. Our 300 coppers were good to us today. One was a 10″ Chrome Killer Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water Rig and the othr was a 10″ White Slick Spin Doctor/UV Mirage Dreamweaver Meat Rig. The Chrome Killer went twice and the White Slick went four times. The King pictured left weighed 18.8 lbs. and hit on that 10″ White Slick rig. A 8″ White Atomic Killer / Green Gasoline Dreamweaver Meat Rig went twice on a 200 copper. We never had a rigger bite. We are running a double tomorrow so we won’t have a report until Wednesday. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
Wow what a week of fishing . On Monday we fished up north off the bank. We boated 9 fish in less than an hour before a storm rolled in and chased us off the lake. We headed back up there on Tuesday and had another great day of fishing boating 15 fish. On Wednesday we headed south to do some scouting for the Offshore Classic. It took us a while to find the fish but when we did we got some nice ones. We boated 14 fish and 8 of them were mature Kings. For the Ruboy Thursday Event we headed back to Little Point Sable hoping to connect up with some of those big Kings we found on Wednesday. We weren’t so lucky. We caught several fish and had 5 mature Kings to weigh but they weren’t as big as the ones we caught on Wednesday. Our five biggest fish weighed 62.8 lbs. and put us in 23rd place out of 65 boats. The winner was Tail Chaser with a 5 fish weight of 72.65 pounds. The Bud Light Ladies Classic was held on Friday and our women’s team showed up ready to fish. The Lake was rough and foggy with the wind blowing from the southwest. Tournament control decided it wasn’t too rough to fish so off we went. We headed back up to Little Point looking to catch some of those big ones we missed on Thursday. We didn’t find them. We had a nice catch and our woman’s crew did a great job fighting, netting and landing the fish. We weighed our 3 biggest kings, our biggest Steelhead and heaviest Lake trout for a total of 53.9 pounds which put us in 7th place out of 22 pro teams. Team Dreamweaver 3 finished in 1st place with a total weight of 64.9 lbs. The Pro/Am started Saturday morning. It was hard to decide if we wanted to fish north or south. After much agonizing about which way to go we headed north. The boat traffic was heavy on the Bank. We couldn’t find a place to set down until we were just short of the Point in 140 feet of water (fow). We hit a King right away. Our action was steady. We boated 9 kings and a Brown Trout before 8:00 a.m. Our plan was to pull lines and head back south on the Bank in 100 fow and get 2 Lakers and then upgrade the rest of the morning. Mother Nature had other plans. A big storm blew in from the west and the tournament was cancelled. Our day one catch would not count. It was very disappointing to say the least. So today it was a one day shootout. We set up in almost the same spot as yesterday and hit two fish right away on our chute rigger down 90 ft. with a Tin Can Dodger and a Pickled Sunshine Actin Fly. We landed one and missed the other one. We trolled north northwest to almost the 05’s hitting a few fish before we turned back to the south. We didn’t have near the action today as yesterday. You could weigh a total of 12 fish today with no more than 9 of any one specie. We ended up only landing 11 fish, 7 Kings and 4 Steelhead. We finished up in 8th place which was good for $500 and finished 11 in the 333 Tournament. We chose a Silver Horde package for our prize. Congratulations to the Pier Pressure Team for winning 1st place for the second year in a row. Our hottest rig for the whole week except for today was a 10″ Mountain Dew Slick Spin Doctor/4th of July Big Water Meat Rig. We had them on both our port side wire divers and our low diver on the starboard. It was by far our best producer up until today. We never had a bite on it today. Our best rod today was a 10″ Light Green Holographic Slick Spin Doctor/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly Meat Rig. Our second best rig during tournament week was a 8″ UV Lizard Spin Doctor/UV On Ice Big Water or Yellow Gasoline Dreamweaver Meat Rig. We had good results with it on a 175 copper, 10 color core and a 200 copper. A 300 copper with a 10″ Chrome Killer Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water rig took our last 2 kings today. We would have liked to have finished in 1st, but there will be another chance at it next year. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
Fishing was much improved from yesterday. Our bigger Kings came on wire divers with Spin Doctors and meat rigs. Only one spoon bite. It came on a 5 color core and took our smallest fish. This will be our last report until after the Ludington Offshore Classic. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods.
Tough bite up north this morning for us. We hit four fish right away and boated two of them. They were both good size Steelhead. One hit a 5 color core with a regular size Dreamweaver Bloody Nose and the other came on a 10 color with a regular DW Beefeater spoon. We had a hook break on a meat rig that cost us a nice fish. Our big King came on a Spin Doctor/meat rig out 130 on a high wire diver. We got a s shallow as 100 feet and out as deep as 260 feet. The Brown trout on the far end of the picture came on a 7.5 color core on a glow spoon.
We fished up north today setting up just off the Bank in 120 feet of water. We had all of our rods set before a low wire diver out 85 with a 10″ Spin Doctor/meat rig took our first bite. It hammered the diver and was gone . A 10 and 7.5 color core took our next two bites, both on glow spoons. We landed one and had a split ring fail on the other. We couldn’t figure out why our chute rigger didn’t get bit. We moved it from 55 down to 85 to 95 and back up to 70 still no bites. We finally pulled it and found a Laker hitchhiker on it. We hit a couple more fish, but it was slow going so we pulled lines and ran to a break northwest of the Point. We hit 10 or 11 fish out there and boated six nice Steelhead. Our best rods were clean birds and 1 & 2 color cores. Our clean birds had a Dreamweaver LD Bumble Bee, SS Magic Man and a SS Goldilocks on them. A Super Slim Steelie Stomper and a Yeck Fireball were on our 1 color cores and a SS Starburst and Yeck Pats Bait were on the 2 color cores. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle copper on our copper rods.
After the hard north blow yesterday the surface water up north on the Bank was in the low 40’s. We went northwest until the surface temp started to rise and set lines. It took a while before we hit our first fish, a nice King out 100 on high wire diver with a 10″ Spin Doctor/meat rig. The bites were coming slow today. We hit two big Kings on our chute rigger down 70 with a 11″ White Crush Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly. One got away and the other, pictured left, ended up in the box. We lost another King on a 10 color core with a 10″ Chrome Killer Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water Meat Rig. It turned the hook. We took a Laker and a small King on a 2 color core with a Dreamweaver LD Bumblebee and a good size Steelhead on a Super Slim Slurpee. A 3 color core with a SS Steelie Stomper took a smaller King too. We fished between the 02’s and low 04’s in the 34’s to the 36’s.
Got some nice Kings today up north off the bank. The biggest pictured left was a 23.2 lb. 39.6 inch dandy caught by Bub Smyth. It came on a 250 copper with a 10″ White Crush Spin Doctor/Green Mirage Strong Fly Meat Rig. Bub’s King qualifies for a Michigan Master Angler Award. Two other Kings pushing 18 lbs. came on a 10 color core with a 10″ Chrome Killer Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water Meat Rig. We set up in 120 feet of water (fow) in the high 00’s and trolled north. The surface temp was 53 degrees and it was 41 degrees down 50 feet. We had all our rods set before we got our first bite. It came on a 8″ Kevin’s Girlfriend Spin Doctor/Green UV Big Water Meat Rig on a 10 color core. We hit our second fish on a 10″ White Crush Spin Doctor/Green Mile Big Water Rig on a 250 copper but it got away. We rode all the way to the Point without another bite. We talked to a friend and he told us they were taking some nice Kings out in 200 to 230 fow. We made a turn out to head back south in deeper water when we took a King on a high wire diver out 120 with a 10″ Blue Bubble Spin Doctor/Blue Bubble Action Fly. We took 3 more Kings on the south troll working between 190 and 230 fow. We turned back north in the high 00’s and took the rest of our fish on the north troll. Our 11″ White Crush Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly on the chute rigger only went once today. A Steelhead hit it when we were reeling it in at the end of the trip. All our fish came on meat today except two. Our next scheduled trip is Tuesday afternoon. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs and Morgan’s Tackle on our copper rods.
We checked out the latest Coast Watch image this morning and the best picture didn’t look very good. The break appeared to be further west than yesterday and more spread out. We heard of a couple boats taking a few mature Kings on the bank yesterday. It was a tough decision to make. Go way out and north where we had been doing so good or try for mature Kings on the Bank? We opted to try the Bank. The surface temp was 47.7 where we set up in the 01’s and 120 feet of water (fow). Our fish Hawk probe was down 50 feet. The temp was 41 degrees there. We had most of our rods set when the chute rigger with an 11″ White Crush Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly set at 55 ft. started bouncing with a mature King on the other end. After a good fight it ended up in our box. That combo went 2 more times but, we missed the other two strikes. Another big King hit a high wire diver out 95 ft. with a 10″ White Crush Green Spin Doctor with a homemade Pickled Sunshine meat rig. A little later in the morning 1st mate Austin dropped it back to 135 ft. and we took 2 more Kings on that rig including the nice one Carlito , pictured above, landed. We had a low wire diver out 70 with a 10″ Dark Blue Slick Spin Doctor/Blue UV Meat Rig that took our last King. We took a good Steelhead on a 10 color core with a mag Fuzzy Bear Carmel Dolphin and a Lake Trout on a 7.5 color core with a glow spoon. We spent most of our time this morning working between 120 and 180 fow. A friend made the run out to the deep water break and reported tough fishing out there. The break had widened and the bite was slow.
We fished northwest of the Point again today between 600 & 800 feet of water (fow). We set up in 55 degree water and trolled across a break into 39 degree water surface temperature. We hit fish right away. Our first hit came in 53 degree water on a clean bird with a Yeck Fireball. We hit another on a 1 color core with a Super Slim Magic Man in 44 degree water. By the time we landed that one we were in 39 degree water. I made a turn to go back to the warm water and hit 3 more Steelhead in the cold water. One on a Yeck Fireball out 65 feet on a high Slide Diver and the other 2 on clean birds. One on a SS Starburst and the other on a SS Steelie Stomper. We worked back and forth between 53 degree and 39 degree surface temps. There were a lot more boats to dodge out there today. We were hitting a few fish on the zig zag troll but by the sound of the boats on the radio they were having better action west of us. We put it on a 240 troll and our action picked up. We took a lot of our fish between 46 and 53 degree water. The Lake Trout on the left took a Super Slim Ruby Red 25 down on an out down. We took a Steelhead on it too. Some of our best rods were clean birds with Super Slim Starburst 3 bites, Little Devil Bumble Bee 3 bites, & a Yeck Fireball 3 bites. A Yeck Pat’s Bait on a 2 color core went 4 times and a Yeck Red Laser on a 3 color core took 2 Lakers. The chute rigger with a 11″ Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly took a nice Coho down 90 ft. A SS Steelie Stomper on a clean bird was good too. We missed a few fish today and threw back 2 small Steelhead. Our best speed seamed to be between 2.4 and 2.7 over ground.
After the north blow yesterday the surface up north at the Point dropped to 41 degrees. We checked the Coast Watch image and saw what looked like a nice break northwest of the Point so we headed out in that direction. We found an area where the surface temp dropped form 55 degrees to 39 degrees in about a 2 mile stretch. That is where we started fishing. Our first 2 fish were smaller Steelhead on 1 color cores with a Super Slim Magic Man and a SS Steelie Stomper. We got into 39 degree water and were making a turn to head back to the warm side of the break when a mature King hit our low wire diver out 45 ft. with an 8″ Blue Bubble Spin Doctor/Blue Bubble Action Fly. We took the Lake Trout pictured left in that 39 degree water 73 ft. down on the chute rigger with a 10″ White Crush Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly. Except for about a 30 minute stretch when we made an in troll looking for a tighter break, the action was steady. The last few trips we’ve made to deep water most of our bites have came on clean birds and 1 & 2 color cores. We took a lot of hits on those rods and also had several bites on our Slide Divers. We had a Super Slim Mixed Veggie with a 60 ft. lead out 85 on a high Slide Diver that went 3 times. A Yeck Fireball with the same 60 ft. lead out 65 also went 3 times on our other high Slide Diver . Super Slim Starburst, Steelie Dan & Double Orange Pearl were good on our clean birds and short cores. A Yeck Red Laser was good on a 3 color core. Our only rigger bite was the Trout we took on the chute rigger.We took a couple fish on a Yeck Fireball on a clean bird. It was a fun trip. I just wish we didn’t have to run so far to find the good water.
