Fished the late morning-early afternoon bite between the 1st and 4th hills off Kenosha today. Never really left 100 FOW for any real amount of time. Lines in at 0930 and out at 1430. Went 15 for 18 with a bonus cat. Had the best luck in the dirty water in the above mentioned area. Ran into a nursery school of shakers at one point. Threw 5 back and kept some due to the dragging rigor that was cast upon them. Got to check them lines often. Downriggers were boss today. Here is what fooled ‘em:

350 Copper with moonshine pox spoon - king and Steelhead
SWR down 50 with hey babe spoon - 2 coho
Blinkie paddle with green Howie crinkle fly on a Dr down 85 - 2 kings/4 coho
SeaQuest Lunchtime spoon down 75 on the rigger - 2 king
10 core - super shadow spoon - catfish
250 Copper with watermelon spoon - coho
Wire diver 3/175 - frog spin dr/pickled sunshine fly - coho

Dirty water and darker spoons were key for us today. Speed was anywhere from 3.1 to 2.4 at the ball. Surface temp was 70. Down 60 52/56. Bigger Kings were caught near the bottom. Marked a ton of bait in the area.

Nice report! Thanks We are going out Sat. We plan on going NE out of NP until we get to that area. I was told get there early before Sun up and then might have to go out deeper 145fow. But I was told there are fish out there and with the way the lake has been flipping around the fish are not yet in yet. It's been a give and take on the water temp. Did you rub that super spoon with any STINK BAIT? We'll see ya Sat.

Hey you were out when I was out. We got an earlier start and went to deep water though. Good job!
