Set lines at 7 AM in 106 FOW. Ran 4 riggers from 30 to 65 ft, two dipseys back 90 and 130, two flat lines back 125 and 100. Water temp on the surface was 49 degrees. Trolled out to 120, zilch, trolled back in and at about 95 FOW started marking some fish from 40 down to bottom. Had one rip on a dipsey/spindr/fly back 250 set on 3. Marked numerous fish between 95 and 85'. Worked that area pretty good but could not get anything else to go. Change lures, pulled flat lines and put in two more dipseys, ran a fish catcher off one of the riggers, ran blues, greens, oranges and shades and variations between those, but nothing doing. Wrapped 'em up at 11 AM and headed in. Came across a perch fisherman at 70', a bit north of piers and he was busy jerking small perch. Great morning on the lake, flat to start and then a west breeze picked up just before we left. Sounds like it is going to be bumpy this afternoon and tomorrow!

I was out on Friday as well. We fished 120-160 and back to 140. finished 8 for 11. 2 kings, 1 laker, 1 steelie and the rest coho. Two fish came off the bottom and the rest were in the top 40.
50+ surface temps. By the sounds of what came out of St Joe, I should have been in 200. That was coho land in St Joe anyway.
