The fishing has been really good, the boats are running West 230 degs for about 10 miles out over the rockline. The middle two numbers are 06/06, which is 68ft of water. They are running Riggers down around the 35ft maker, dipsy back 80 on a one 100 on a 3setting, Off the planner boards they are running 40 jets back 125ft, and hotlpis back100ft. Copper and purple seem to be the best colours yesterday. Some boats are heading South 170 degs out to the Rockline and trolling out along the rockline, there are doing good also, running the same program.
The weather is hot and so is the fishing! The fish seem to be within the same location about 10 miles straight out from the channel at a bearing of 170-180 or if you are interested more so for steelhead, go out the same distance only head out more SE of the channel at a bearing of about 140, just past the rock line.Be sure to have your dipsys set at about 80 on a 1 setting and 120 on a 3 setting, or about 35-40 feet of depth.Spoon colours seem to be consistent as pink, purple, and orange with copper and pink backs seem to be working well. The hot lips at about 100 -150 feet back seem to be the best body bait as more pickerel seem to be getting caught! 40 Jet divers are working good as well at about 120 feet back from the planar boards. Leadcore is the same as locals have 5-10 colours set out.
So there are a couple of spots that are catching fish, the charter boats are doing very well. You can run 235 deg West for 10 miles middle two number are 07/07 just over the Rockline. There they are catching a good mixed bag of walleyes and steelhead. they are running dipsys with copper spoons, planner boards with 40 jets, 5 and 10 colour leadcore. The other spot is South 170 deg middle two 07/55 to the Rockline. There they are running the same program, but start a little high like dipsy back 60ft on a 1 setting, The boys are saying to change the lures often, and move the rods around.
