Now that I'm home, here's the scoop. Wire back 180 with pink dot paddle and fly took 2. Meat rig on wire diver back 205 took one. Rigger down 75? With paddle and fly took the small one, and rigger down 85 with white paddle and fly took an adult. Lost what I thought was a laker on high slide diver back 250 with paddle and fly- can't remember color. And last fish I believe was snagged. Couldn't stop it or turn it, was out past 700 ft when we finally got lines pulled and turned around. Got above it with 50ft of line out and just popped out. Nothing broke or bent, figure it was snagged. Came on high slide diver. That was the last "fish" of the night at about 945 so just went in as everything was already pulled. It got chaotic at dark for us. 3 fish came after 915

Great report and success out there Someone11. I like how you stacked the smallest one in the pic.

My 10 year old step daughter who came along got a chuckle out of it lol she's like "it looks like all the big fish are eating the little one" 😂

Late report from last night, only 1 for 1, just before 9. Meat rig, white spin doctor and UV bait head. Dipsey, down 65 ft. Nice tank, 24 pounds.

Based on someone11 report, I need to invest in wire divers. Have went back and forth about it, looks like I need to pull the trigger. Anyone have a suggested setup? Rod/reel?

Awesome, looks like a good night. Did the fish not like the spoon program or did you only run flies and meat?
I was only running spoons on my copper/Weighted steel and they never went. Had paddle flies/meat on all my divers and riggers, that seems to be what they've been wanting lately at least on my boat

I run shimano tekota reels and talora rods with twili tips and absolutely love them for wire setups

Looks like a great family night.
Nice report as well!

Convector 30 reel, 1000 feet of mason brand 7 strand wire, convector pro rod with twilli tip. You can use a roller rod but it costs more. One of the most effective setups in my opinion
