Got a late start this morning due to a late Friday night 😯..anyway got lines in 10am in a nasty east wind started SE of port and trolled west on the pipelines with the waves to keep good boat control in 72fow..it didn't take long for the the lines to start firing. We were marking lots of bait and fish closer to bottom so we ran lines down 55 to 65ft. We ended up going 4 for 6 on the eyes and lost a double digit coho at back of boat as soon as it seen the net it had other plans it got airborne and broke me off with my harness as a souvenir 😡..but was a good fight.😃 We packed it in 12ish after getting caught up in debris field of weeds etc it seemed to go on forever plus moma was getting a little green from the waves. Best colours were bbq chicken and nascar copper backing . The eyes were between 3 to 5lbs..oh almost forgot the one eye had all these gross wart things all over it all the size of small grapes 🤮..didn't not get a pic of it just wanted it out of my boat as per moma 🤣..I've seen that before...anyway I believe the migrating fish are starting to show up. It will only get better now 👍🍻20200801_135006.jpg20200801_155025.jpg

Yes it's promising for us in the east....I use dipsy..#3 setting out 158ft and 108ft #1 setting ...troll speed 1.5to 1.75 mph on graph ..they generally run 55 to 65 ft down depending on currents etc..but adjust accordingly to conditions

Nice! We decided to forgo today due to the weather and took the other toy for a cruise to Point Abino/Crystal Beach. Got rained on in the convertable with the top down. Bad weather got us anyways.

Way to go Dave, did you happen to see the nets out at the fingers or maybe they moved them.
When I was out there Thurs. the weeds where all over the place had to keep checking lines. I just fished the riggers with Gold Red Fins tried harnesses no go. but then again I only got the 1 Walleye.

What are the fingers that I keep reading about?

Ya guys started calling it that name the last few years, I guess because looks a little like stubby looking fingers 😀
