Headed straight out of port and got set up in 180’ at 6am and trolled due north.  We got to 315’ before we had our first bite.  Bay Rat NBK mag spoon on a 300 weighted steel with an inline board took a 10# steelhead.  My son was thrilled when it broke the water surface.  We got out to 397’ and a wire dipsey set at 280’, #2 setting with a 10” Mountain Dew spin doctor and a JB custom fly called “showtime” screamed out to 600’ before my son could stop it.  Ten minutes later we had a 24# king on deck and my 8 year old was beaming.  Personal best for him by several pounds.  Ended up 8/12 on the day.  2 kings, 3 steelhead, 3 coho.  All fish were taken between 260-400 FOW.  Temp break was right around 60-65’ down.  Great morning on the water.  Hopefully a sign that things are improving.  89F56A76-B923-489E-BC97-4245D6A6C851.thumb.jpeg.69f51109cc07aa876b735e62be726676.jpeg7135CA92-9561-4443-B9D4-CAB8AF9DE04D.thumb.jpeg.348555c989633de6ce1c48844f1f57b1.jpeg

Good to hear, congrats!

Great catch! - Question for you - how do you decide when it's worth fishing the inside vs the outside? We always decide to turn back around 250' after not seeing anything. Just a gut feeling?

We had been catching more fish out deep since the lake went into transition after the spring derby.  I had not fished Ontario in 2 weeks because we were focused on walleye in Erie but the reports I had been getting were pointing to the actively feeding fish still being out deep.  We started marking fish as soon as we crossed over the 270’ line and we were  seeing good water temps.  Lots of guys have been marking fish and bait inside of 200’ but not getting bites.  That may be changing as we speak though.  Hope this helps.
