Yep, I look foreward to the sleep deprivation and the hard pulling salmon every year! Cheffrey and his crew usually head over about the same time as me every year. Met a couple guys a few years back. Kind of nice to compare notes. Sounds like the spoon bite is picking up, the clay banks have been doing well up towards Sturgeon bay and they have been getting into quite a few fish out of Port Washington. The guys going out of Algoma have been doing prettygood as well and there even has been some fish caught off the pier early a.m. I been going through my tackle and gear getting ready to rock. It is going to be a long 3 weeks!

Sutty and I are planning to head over the last two weekends of July. I will probably make another run out in August with my dad. Also considering a third July run with my dad if I can find the time, but nothing is planned yet.

The island can be awsome! I stayed at a friends out there last year and we fished the island and did well. Some brutes up there and the bait clouds are unreal! We fished rock island the year before and did well out there as well. Good luck! Sounds like there are fish being caught all along the door county area.

I'll be there Thursday by around noon. I'm fishing off my buddys boat THE HOBBYSHOP. He is docked there. I'll have the Crestliner out as well for some easy put in evening fishing if it presents. Gonna leave the boat out there for my eventual return in 2 weeks. Give a holler for Tunrevir on the radio or stop by the dock and introduce yourself. Hopefully we will have hit them good early and be back at the dock having a cold one! I am the guy that is wearing a faded navy blue hat with a white Mickey Mouse logo.

Keewaunee report. Caught a few bows up high on spoons like green dolphin, blaze orange proking, smaller monkey puke off boards with 5 and seven colors of LC. Caught our salmon on a variety of spoons, and flasher flies combos. Pearl spoons did well the first evening and then mag glow spoons like a moonshine happymeal, hotlips, rapture, rainbow. Chrome flashers with blue aquaflies got hit on both dypsies and off riggers. Ended the weekend with a 3 man limit. Biggest salmon was 18#, biggest steelhead was 10# Great weekend and the weather cooperated for the most part.

Thanks for the report tunrevir, we are headed back to kewaunee the weekend of the 30-31 & 1st. We were over there the 8th through the 11th and did well but alot of shakers, did you have alot of shakers this trip or were the fish running larger?

We had alot of shakers and put back some fish. The bigger fish for us were both deeper 110-125' and then shallow late in the morning 65-70'. I think alot depends on the water temps and the breaks which makes "structureless" structure out there on the water. Another thing is that with all of the rain and heavy runoff there were "dirty water" areas and clean water areas. If you don't own a subtroll, fishhawk or some sort of device that can give you readings at the ball for both temp and speed it can be a slight disadvantage. If you are like me and don't own one of these devices then you really need to pay attention to your downrigger lines and see if they are blowing back(indicates current opposite of what path you are trolling) or vice versa. If your rigger lines are straight down you need to push the speed up slightly due to a current pushing the ball towards the boat if the ball is blown way back then take a little off the speed. Cross current your lines will sway to one side and the SOG reading on the GPS can be fairly accurate. Our best speeds this past weekend were between 1.8 and 2.2 mph. My depthfinder might be reading 3+ mph when trolling with a current and the same with the SOG but if the rigger cables are straight down I know my spread isn't going to be nearly as productive because the lures at the ball aren't moving at the same speed as the boat. Hope this makes sense for you guys but you have to take into acount the currents that you can't see due to temp breaks. Warm and cold water can act alot like clouds and air during thunderstorms. Jar Jar, I am heading over again the same weekend weather permitting so call for Tunrevir on the radio if you are out. I am either going to stay in Keewaunee or the in Algoma depending on the reports.

They had storms blow through last night. I just got off the phone with my dad, water temps are going down as the warm water blows out. Hopefully will improve fishing for this coming weekend. It was 70F surface temps last weekend. We don't have a depth raider rigged up though to know the lower temps, but from what we heard it was warm all the way down. My dad said he is seeing 65F surface temps today.

We did well with a variety of blue/green magnum spoons on riggers down 60+, dipsy out 150. The usual morning/evening bite was no good for us with glow baits. Steelhead were doing well up high on 2 and 3 color lead behind boards with orange spoons.

I read on another forum that in Algoma yesterday morning they pounded em in 120-150 fow, down 40, with glow spoons. That guy also said charters were coming in early as well with limits.

Nice pics Cheeta! I noticed on NOAA that the surface temps are cooling down around Kewaunee as of this morning. I see that there are some low 60's and upper 50's according to the map. We are headed back to Salmon Harbor right after work on Friday!!

I'll post When we get back

We did well out there this past weekend. Spoon bite continued, though very little consistency in colors taking the fish, only caught maybe two on flasher/fly combos. Fished in the rain Sunday morning, that sucked, still caught some fish though. We did our best in the deeper water, 150-250 again. Went away from the crowds, partially since we had a rookie in the boat doing a lot of the driving, and also because we just didn't catch anything in the crowds...

Best fish was 17lb, caught a couple 15lb, and a bunch more in the 10-12 range. Higher average weight than last weekend for sure. Only caught one or two steelhead though, not sure where they disappeared to.

    • Here's an old post I found about the WI explosion:   mtbucket Posted February 6, 2012 Thoughts and prayers to this man and his family. It makes me wonder if he was one of the guys that said " I have done it for years with no problems". POLK COUNTY (WCCO) — One person is dead and another is in the hospital after a garage explosion and fire Saturday, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office says the incident occurred at 657 U.S. Highway 8 in Apple River Township. Stanley Johnson, 81, was inside the garage “actively filling a small 1 lb LP cylinder from a larger 20 lb tank” when the small tank ruptured and ignited the escaping gas. Johnson’s wife, 77-year-old Nancy Johnson, was in the garage area when the explosion occurred. She was pronounced deceased on scene. Stanley Johnson was able to escape the garage. He was transported to Amery Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries
    • I remember the pictures you posted of your neighbors house. Those pictures along with the news paper article about the guy from WI that blew up his garage and killed his wife were enough to convince me not to refill 1lb tanks.
    • Just my opinion but I find the 1 pounders to be convenient. I used to hook up a hose to my mr. Heater/Cooker years ago and run off a 20 pounder and I almost melted through the hose. I never found dealing with a hose and a tank to be as convenient as using the 1 pounders.    For me, if it were all about saving a couple of bucks, I would just buy my fish in a store. It seems funny to me that guys that spend thousands of dollars to sit on a sheet of ice and catch fish would risk their safety trying to save a couple of bucks on propane.   But again, that's just my opinion.
    • Thanks for all the info fellas! I ended up buying two 140 mm fans, but have only installed one.  I decided to take it one step further and install a thermo fan switch. I actually ended up buying the switch and mounting plate directly from empire for $30. This way the fan cycles with the heat. The switch kicks in about 5 min after the heat turns on and runs from about 5 min after it turns off. Using the switch should keep things more consistent.  I wired it up to a SPDT On-Off-On switch so that I can run it either in thermoswitch mode or manual.   As far as the fans go, the 140 mm seem are quieter and draw less (0.16 amp) than the 120 mm fans due to the reduced RPM requirements. One thing that I did notice though is that although they are rated high on the CFM scale, they do not seem to have near as much pressure as the smaller fans. I understand why that is, but not sure if the lower pressure will make a difference in pushing air over the heat exchanger. That was one reason that I left room for two  
    • A guy would probably want to buy a back up canister, at that price you could buy a 5lb and save a couple bucks. 
    • I like both so I smoke for about 2 hours and finish in dehydrator.
    • will stay with this method. dont want to be filling that thing every night.  I have a dozen that I keep reusing . 
    • 20 pounder in my sled aint gonna happen. 
    • Been there done that. Not worth refilling. I'll stick to my 20 lbers!
    • https://www.menards.com/main/heating-cooling/propane-tanks/steel-1-lb-refillable-cylinder-with-refill-kit/ysn1lbkt/p-1491546053102.htm   Only $34.99 at Menards. That looks like the real ticket. Personally I would never re-fill those coleman 1 lbers. They aren't made for it and it seems dangerous to me. This kit comes with one refillable cylinder so you might need to buy one or two more but then they are supposedly good for 12 years. I think I might buy myself one for the holidays.
