7/15 Got on the water about 6:00 set up in about 60 ft  and picked up a small brown before we had every thing down. Worked 100 - 140 for a few hours lot of marks but couldn't get any thing to .fire except lakers got three around 12 lbs Put out a 10 inch chrome two face on wire on a 1 setting 220 out and it fired and came unhooked with a hammer fly 36 inch leader. Got set back up and decided to troll out a little got out to 180 and the two face fires again 23 pound king. Had very little action on spoons and a bunch of fish came unhooked on flasher flies. Put  the black spinny that Bob Songin mentioned in video from the day before and it fired with in 5 minutes and broke off and I didn't have another. broke two brand new leaders 40lb big game 8 inches down from my knot and didn't even release the dipsey? I checked both of them for nicks before I put them down and they both broke away from the knot and the release on the dipsey wasn't overly tight. Ended up using some 50 lb Gamma I use to tie fly leaders with put I don't know what happened.

 

7/16 Got on the water about 5:45 and set up in 100 ft  and started our troll. Started a west troll in 130  and anther boat comes in from around 170 ft and angles right at me I won't post the name of the boat but he got to about 100 ft from me and was still coming directly at me. I yelled "Hey what the F### are we doing here" he replies "I'm sorry" and finally turns back out. 6 guys on their boat and they had to see what was happening. I was on my line for 40 minutes and he was literally going to run me over. 

 

Little later the Two chrome takes a nasty hit and screams out, after a great fight Daughter in law land a 18.5 king.Picked up another king on a black and white spinny and a 42 nd flie down 90 on a rigger, Land a brown off a spoon and a laker and decide to head deep. Hit 400 and chili willi spoon stacked at 60 fires with a steelie third jump it comes off. Get it back down and another steelie takes it about 9 lbs, The chrome two face on the 1 dipsey fires again 16 lb king. We don't get it back down and the other dipsey on a 3 setting with the same set up fires and gets off. Circled back through nothing. 

 

The learning curve continues. Had to come back home for a couple days be back Wednesday - Sunday at the Oak.

food for thought ,Navigation on great lakes and inland  seaways vessels approaching each other must pass port side to port side.Does not matter if you have been on a consistant track. Always make adjustments in your heading to pass port to port and you will be in the right

We weren't approaching each other I was on a west troll he was on a sw line, he was over taking me. I had boats on my port trolling west no where to go. I have a boat approaching me I'm giving 20- 30 degrees a half mile away, last thing I want is an issue on the water. If I didn't keep my line I would have been collecting the guys copper on my port side.
