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.
The fishing has been great as the weather is starting to clear up for the next few days! Reports have come in that both Steelhead and Walleye are being caught just around the Point of Pins in 65 feet of water, straight out from the channel into about 70 feet of water, or SW of the channel about 10 miles in 60-70 feet of water. Dipsy’s are being still set at about 120 feet on a 3 setting and about 80 feet on a 1 setting. The hot colours for spoons seem to be orange like the Jerry Lee, purple spoons, and pink back spoons. The body baits have not changed as locals are catching fish any where from 150-200 feet back.
