The north wind turned the water over up north. The surface temp was 42.9 in the 00’s. We ended up fishing the pier heads this morning. Plugs on 3 & 5 color cores took all our fish but one. We had 5 bites on our wire divers with 10″ Spin Doctors and Big Water Meat Rigs. We only put one of them in the boat. A 10″ Dark Green White Crush Spin Doctor/Froggie Big Water Meat Rig out 35 on a low wire went 3 times. Our best plug was a Dreamweaver Natural Glow Cut Plug on a 3 color core. The bite was good early, but when it died – it died.

The water cooled a little up north. It was 50 degrees today down 60 feet. Mag spoons continued to be good for us on our riggers and 200 coppers. Fuzzy Bear Yellow Tails, Dreamweaver Hello Darlan & Beefeater were our 3 top spoons. We took fish from the Bath House to north of the Point. Our riggers were set at 50, 60, & 70 feet. A White Crush 11″ Paddle/Pickled Sunshine Action Fly took a few fish today on our chute rigger down 70 feet. On the morning trip we had 10″ Kevin’s Girlfriend Spin Doctors/Green Mile & Froggie Big Water Meat Rigs out 200 & 220 on our high wires and 10″ Show Time & Black Blade White Crush Spin Doctors with Blue Moo and Froggie Big Water Meat Rigs out 100 & 120 on our low wires. On our P.M. trip we had a 10″ Kevorkian Spin Doctor/ UV On Ice Big Water Rig out 235 on one high wire and a 10″ UV Purple Sparkler Spin Doctor/Purple UV Big Water Rig out 180 on the other high wire. They were both good. We had Lucky Charm & Natural Glow Captains Choice Cut Plugs on our 150 coppers and they took fish on both trips. We use Erie Dearie Meat on all our meat rigs.
