Default Northpoint Report AM - 4th of July Fireworks!

Launched this morning out of North Point and headed straight East until we reached 95 feet of water. Ran an 8 rod spread consisting of 4 downriggers, 2 dipseys, and 2 lead core (10 color and 5 color). Did not have to wait long to catch fish! Trolling speed on the GPS was anywhere from 2.4 to 3.1. I quickly realized that if I saw fish on my screen, I would boost the speed up a bit to trigger strikes. This landed us our first quadruple (That's right...4 rods going off at the same time. We managed to get everyone of those fish in! Overall, ended 8 for 11 with 6 Steelhead, 1 King, and 1 huge Laker. We pretty much stayed between 95 and 105 feet of water. Here is what worked for us today:
1-1 10 color with tuxedo magnum stinger spoon - Steelhead
2-3 Downrigger at 67 feet with crush glow spin doctor with a green hypnotist fly - 3 more Steelhead (1 lost at boat).
1-1 5 color with Monkey Puke Magnum Stinger Spoon - 1 Steelhead
2-2 Dipsey out 135 with a NBK E-Chip with a Green Hypnotist fly- 1 King, 1 Steelhead
1-2 Downrigger down 56 with a silver prism dodger with a white Howie Fly- 1 Laker, missed Steelhead
1-2 Downrigger down 35 with a Blue Dolphin Neon Magnum Spoon - 1 Steelhead, missed King

Overall, we had great weather, and spent the day with great friends! I tried to download pictures to this post, but the website will not let me for some reason. I wish everyone continued success fishing!

Good stuff Sal

So much for fishing for Drum on the Fox Chain

Make sure when using photobucket that when you resize pic make sure you " replace original" or you are going to be beating your hot dog in the ground all day like i used to.
