What’s the water temp and clarity like up there Brandon?
Its sorta a grey color. Top of the water column was anywhere from 53 degrees with a moving thermocline, it went anywhere from 30 ft down to 80 feet, watch the bait on the graph up against the walls in the channels near green and red cans, I had Temps down to low 40s at times. Temp break seemed to be from 50 to 45 degrees. The bait follows the thermocline

Planning to make the drive over to Detour this weekend. Never been there and never caught atlantics before. Just looking for a starting point. From what I've heard it seems like I should be trolling up and down the channel running bright colored spoons high in the water column. Is there anything else I should know?

Keep your drags loose especially as they get near the boat. The pattern I've seen is they will hit hard but then swim in towards the boat with little resistance. Then they go nuts about ten feet from the stern. That's where I tend to lose them.
