Started our troll heading SW on the Duck island side of the Lanes. Fished down 70-100 over 140 ft. Picked up a 9lb laker right off the bat down 90 on a blue dolphin spoon. Within an hour we had 3 more lakers from 6-9 lbs, all down 80-100 on spoons.

We started south towards Galloo, lifted the gear to 60-80 ft down, and sped up to about 2.6-2.8 knots. 15 minutes later A downrigger rod popped and immediately started screaming... It's a lightweight shimano reel with 12 lb test and after 20 seconds of the run, it had 400ft less line on it! We stopped the fish's run with about 1/5 of the line left on it....after 20 min we landed a nice 20lb king.

We took a break for lunch and then started up again from 10:30-11:30 and landed another king (15 lbs) and lost a 6-9 lb steelhead that jumped for 5 min then spit it!... Both hit spoons down 50-60 ft over 120-150 ft trolling north west on the Galloo side of the lanes. Was a great morning on the water!! Hope to head back up in two weeks.

We are out of Cape Vincent as well, boat name Renegade II.

We start fishing about a mile south east of Main Duck island. It's about a 19 mile run from the cape, so in anything but calm weather it can be a slow haul.

Tight lines!
