Fished south again today setting up in 120 feet of water. We took 2 fish early. We took a King on a mag glow spoon on a 225 copper and a nice Coho on a 175 copper with a mag Fuzzy Bear Green Skinny Jeans. We marked some bait near the surface and a few fish but the large schools of bait we saw yesterday were gone. We didn’t have any more bites so we headed west for deeper water. We trolled for 3 miles without a bite then we took the King pictured above on a 225 copper with a UV Blue Dolphin Super Slim. We took a Steelhead on a 7.5 color core with a Yeck Fireball. We hit a big fish in he middle of a turn on a 225 copper with a Yeck 66 Lighting spoon. It ran out a lot of line, got tangled in one of our cores, and got off. All our bites today came on coppers & cores.

Finally back on the water. We fished south today setting up in 110 feet of water. We had most of our rods set when the chute rigger set at 60 ft. took a bite. The 2 year old King took a regular size Dreamweaver EVM spoon stacked 15 ft. above a Spin Doctor/Fly and we landed it. It wasn’t too long when we hooked 2 Coho’s on the same rod with a pair of Super Slim Super Bread spoons on an out down. The main bait was 35 ft. down and the other was free sliding above it. We got 1 and lost the other at he net. We took another young King on a 7.5 color core with a Wonder Bread Captain’s Choice Cut Plug. The morning was starting out well. We were marking lots of bait and a few fish but our action died. We trolled out to 180 feet of water and back in to 120 feet of water with no more bites. We turned back out on a northwest troll and took a nice King on a 10″ White Slick Spin Doctor/Pickled Sunshine Dreamweaver Meat Rig out 235 on a high wire diver. While we were fighting the King we took a Laker on the bottom with an 8″ Chrome Spin Doctor/Blue Chrome WhirlyGig with glow wings. We use Dreamweaver Premium Strips in all our meat rigs, Morgan’s Tackle copper on all our copper rods and Morgan’s wire on all our wire rods.
