Good Morning, it is Thursday, July 24th and it’s 58 degrees this morning – with some chop kicking out there today. It is going to lay down to plain old 1 to 3’s later this afternoon. There was no internet in our area for almost a week . There was a lot more we couldn’t do than the websites; fishing licenses were the biggest issue. That made it the hardest part of the outage. Hopefully the Verizon wires are back from their summer vacation.

Fishing is on again off again and getting a little better than it has been. All the charters are in town and ready for some good fishing. I think everyone is. The amazing charters we have seem to be having a great day so far today. We saw a couple of nice fish this last week.

Monday, Roger Young caught a beautiful brown that weighed in at 21.04. The on again off again fishing the day before sent him and Joe Waseleski out there to test the waters before their afternoon charter. They were out in 375 feet of water and hit a big king and lost it. The next bite was a 21.04 brown trout that gave Roger first place in the brown division on the LOC leaderboard.

Fishing has been doing the on again off again scenario for quite a while and they are catching fish out here. It isn’t the typical end of July scenario yet. It has it’s moments. Most are heading offshore out to 350 to 500 fow and doing well on steelhead and kings. After that 335 fow brown the other day out that deep – who knows what you can catch out there. Most have been working the top waters 30 to 45 down out there. Finding temp is the key, the lake is loaded with bait.

Charters have been working hard to get those limits of fish for their customers. Still a strange year for fishing, those fish are in random pockets and when you find them, that area needs to be worked over and over again and they will eventually swim off to another random location. There is still some cold water in a lot of areas when searching down temps.

For those fishing inside – 80 fow was productive for some and not so productive for others.

The LOTSA tournament was this last weekend and there was some nice fish caught in that one. The biggest was a 28.15 caught by 12 year old Hunter Peterson of Pennsylvania. He just happened to be fishing on just about the most fun family fishing boat in the harbor – “Hotline” with his favorite aunt and uncle, Dave and Michelle. He is our first winner in the Lineman weekly this season , salmon division and gets $140 dollars. The trout division is a carryover of $170 dollars so far (30 from last season carryover). Hotline won the weekly, came in 3rd in the LOTSA tournament and that fish is currently in 2nd place for the summer LOC. Al Saureland and his Instigator team won the LOTSA tournament this weekend with 3 sweet kings caught in 80 fow. Frank & Amy Schmidhammer , Reel Excitement - came in 2nd place and most seemed to do quite well.

It is picking up and although can’t give you any great info currently – there should be plenty of good reports for the rest of the season.

One of the charter boats, Indulgence sank Tuesday morning . That was a mess. Just the top was sticking out of the water and there was quite a mess of gas and oil for a while. Today looks like everyone is floating above water – just some waves crashing so far today and cool air temps. This is the final weekend of the LOC Summer Derby and a great weekend to get out there and get on the leaderboard! Have a great day.
