So we set out for Algoma today. We were greeted with large rollers out of the north and a good chop from the north west. We powered out to 100 and found 70 degree water to the bottom. In 115 there was 50 degree water in the bottom. We kept going and found 48 degree water down 90 in 200 ft, we kept going and found 48 degree water down 60 in 275ft so we set up and started trolling east. With 4 rods in the 200 CU with a green flounder pounder went off and started screaming and then came off, may have been a king. We continued to set lines and ran FF’s on 4 dipseys and 1 rigger, glow spoons were out on the 200,300 6 color and 10 color. We trolled for awhile without another bite, after the sun came up the 200 cu went off again and we netted a rainbow, we then found a rainbow shaker dragging on the 6 color with a cracked ice spoon. We pulled some FF’s and added 2 meat rigs. We trolled along for awhile longer until a chrome/blue meat rig fired on the rigger down 50. It was a large rainbow that came up to the surface and swam into the 300 copper, we were able to land it and then untangle a small mess. We trolled on in a bit of a lull until we hit 450 there a 57 special spoon on the 6 color took a bow, shortly after that we lost a nice jumping bow on the 200 CU green flounder pounder, a little while later the ten color took a bow with a watermelon spoon, after making a turn and coming through our waypoints the 5 color took off with a orange stinger spoon. That bow made it all the way to the back of the boat 6ft out of net range, tail kicked and swam away. After that the 57 Chevy spoon on the 6 color took a swing and a miss, our last hookup was on a mag pro king on the 250 CU. We ended the day 6-10.
