Algoma Kings Are Biting

11 posts in this topic

The KINGS are biting! The past four or five days have made a world of difference on the fishing scene out of Algoma. Both private and charter boats have been coming in with some pretty good early season catches. Best action has been coming from deeper 100' plus water, but action has been getting better each day. Morning catches have ranged from 6 to 14 fish per boat and afternoons have been 4 to 12 fish. Not bad for end of May fishing!

Water temps have been climbing and as of the weekend, I recorded 51.5 degrees surface temps in 125' of water. The surface temps dropped the deeper you went, but the fish didn't seem to mind.

Most of the "bites" occurred between 100' and 200' of water and were coming from the many suspended "marks" down 40' to 125'. Early morning action has been very good and many anglers reported very good morning action in 100' to 140' of water. After the sun comes up, action slows a bit but remains steady throughout the day. Flashers and flies have produced the majority of the fish. A variety of combinations have worked with the best presentation being the downriggers up to 20' off the bottom.

While a majority of the fish have been real nice kings, some lake trout have been caught also. Steelhead action remains slow, but the past several days have been pretty choppy and not many anglers have been running high birds with spoons for the steelhead. Fishing remains slower to the north of Algoma and the best action seems to be straight out of the harbor and to the south of town.

Thanks for the report, this can't possibly be Tom posting this, there are no four letter words anywhere in the report.

Tell him the Rain man crew is looking to come out in July.

One of the few photos in existence of me without a fishing hat on! lol.

That was a great trip. Left Prior Lake at about midnight and boarded the Barbie Doll at Port Washington around 7 a.m. We had a limit for 5 guys of two and three year olds by noon..no four year olds tho.

Time flies... I haven't been out there in over ten or fifteen years now. We usually fished out of Kewaunee....Got to get back out there someday.

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
