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.

    • WOW!  More wow to come.  😎
    • Great looking plots and Set-ups! My early season clover plots are doing very well! This weekend I will work on the fall brassica plots, have 3 small ones, about 1/2 acre each to put in. Can't get to them with a tractor so will be doing the tilling with a walk behind garden tiller. Going to be a ton of work but this rain will be great to soften up the ground. I will also be sliding a few portables around and I need to finish to more enclosed permanent stands. I usually do all this stand work in April/May but this past spring I just did not get to it...
    • Nice! I will put a few out this weekend.....
    • Next up was installing the floor. We went with 3/4” marine grade plywood. I also coated both sides and all edges with a water sealer just to be sure.    After installing the plywood floor we put the furring strips in and ran the wiring.    Each wire goes back the front wall where I made a little panel. The front wall has an opening for a 55” TV that sits flush in the wall. The little squares above and below the tv opening are for in wall speakers.  This is half of the wires the other side of the panel has the other half.  This is all the positive wires coming through the front wall and behind the panel. I forgot to take a picture of the back of the panel after I cleaned it up and put the negative wires through.  Here is a picture of the front of the panel while I was booking everything up. All the positive wires on the left and negative on the right. My wiring is a lot different than most shacks. I’ve never made a panel like this before so I didn’t really know what to order. The terminals that the wires go into are called din rail terminal blocks the snap onto a little piece of aluminum called a din rail.  Later I found stackable ones that would have saved space but I like how it turned out. Each terminal block has a slot in it where you can put a jumper. So everything that was going to be on one switch would be jumpered together. Things on a different switch would be jumpered and so on. The terminal blocks have a hole on the top where one wire comes in and gets screwed down to hold it and there is the same on the bottom. So once the terminal blocks are jumpered to things you want on the same switch you only need one wire out the bottom. Things that were ran off of the switch went out the bottom and over to the relay board. You do the same for each thing you want to run off a different switch just run a wire to a different relay. The long green rectangle thing on the right is a relay board. Our house has 12 light switches not all of them are used yet but they can be so I bought a relay board with 12 spdt relays. The green square on the left is an arduino which is basically like a mini computer chip that you can program. I’ll explain more once I get to what our switches look like. The bottom right of the panel is for the trailer lights and brakes and all the stuff that hooks up to the truck.  I eventually replaced these normal terminal blocks with the din rail style.  Here is the wiring panel all finished up.  The reason for using all the relays and arduino was so I could use this light switch and eventually be able to control everything from a smart phone. In the fish house we have 2 of these switches which each have 6 buttons on them. Each switch has a set of cat 5 cable running to it. One set is connected to the atduino board and sends a signal saying the button was pressed.  The other cat 5 wire is to send a signal to turn on and off a little light next to the button when it is pressed   Here is the back of the switch. So basically how it works is the arduino has pins on it that can send or receive signals it also has pins that can send 5 vdc or 3vdc. So one wire from the arduinos 5 v pin hooks up to the back of the switch where it says sc (switch common 5v coming in). A different wire connects a different arduino 5 v pin to the terminal that says pc (pilot common which is just the little lights next to the buttons). So when a button is pressed a brief 5 v signal is sent from the arduino to the switch which goes through board on the switch and to the wire terminal that is for that button the signal is then sent back to a digital pin (receiving pin) of the arduino on a digital pin. The arduino has to be programmed to receive different signals on the pins you want. Once the arduino sees that a button was pressed it sends a signal over to the relay board saying a button was pressed close the relay that corresponds to that button. When the relay closes it allows the 12v to go to whatever you want to turn on. The nice thing about how this system works is everything can be changed in a matter of minutes. Say I wanted to have the ceiling lights be on button 4 instead of 1 you just have to change a couple of numbers in the code and plug the arduino into your computer and upload the updated code. I’m sure I lost most people right away and I’m not sure if anyone else would even want to do something similar but If so you can message me and I can try and explain it better. Before this I’ve never done anything like this so I had to learn all of this online and how to write little bits of code and do all that which was fun but also frustrating at times since I didn’t have anyone to go to with my questions.  Not sure If this video will work or not.  4B8EE058-806B-4BF6-8DD8-8FC76BE46BD0.MOV  
    • Everything is going strong now. Been making salsa for the last week or so, have been doing abt's with the jalapenos,  thinking on letting them go red to spread it out a bit. The early girls are kicking em out but the big boys have a bit. Canned two jars of pickles with more coming down the pipe, but I'm gonna hafta start grilling some zucchini,  can only make so much bread.    Bell peppers seem to be running a little on the small side, starting to change colors but was hoping for some better sized ones for stuffing. Snap peas did good out of the gate but are trailing off already,  ya gotta love this time of year!!
    • juicy or freeze dried?
    • Most of the state has been experiencing sunny, warm, and beautiful summer days. The forecast predicts some rain over the next day or two, but otherwise it looks like warm temperatures and clear days and nights. Canoers at Mays Ledges at the Brule River State Forest.These mild and sunny days have been great for canoeing and kayaking and many river water levels are moderate and perfect for paddling. The lower Wisconsin Rivers is running just about normal for this time of year, with many sandbars popping up.Much of the state has been hovering at moderate fire danger this week, which means, in the right place, wildfires can happen. Nearly 60 wildfires have occurred across the state in July, mostly caused by fireworks or sparks from equipment. .
    • Looks to me like a great fishing cart...mount some pole holders on the sides and a cup holder for your beverage and life is good!!🎣
    • i still have some from 2016, most from last year yet but i like to stay ahead. how do they say it........i like to let them MELD!!!!!!!!!😁 that was a 1/2 bushel, smaller batches makes it not so over whelming. especially on a work nite.
