My brother and I got out for our first big lake trips of the season, out of Braddock's on Sunday (first time there), and out of Hughes Marina yesterday.


Out of Braddock's, fished out near the fleet in the 130-175 fow range, couldn't get any of the bigger fish to bite, but got a couple decent steelies; one on a caramel dolphin near the surface off a planer board, and the other on an NBK spoon down 30 feet on a rigger. We also picked up a skippy king.


It was nice to have the lake mainly to ourselves out of Hughes yesterday morning. We started about 100 fow at 6 a.m., and ended 4 for 5.  We caught a couple kings in the 8-10 lb range, lost one about 13-14 lbs that decided to go ballistic at the boat and ended up wrapped in the prop and breaking off (white spin doctor with black and green dots), a nice 20 lb king off a natural-colored, alewife-looking spoon, and a laker about 12 lbs.

Most of our action was in the 50-60 foot depths and the fish we took were in the 190 fow range. We saw a couple boats working about 100 fow as we were trolling in at 10:30.

A couple nice days on the water.
