A trip of wonders. Coming out of portage, but I’d hardly call this trip portage fishing- might as well have trailered. Went out to what I think was 175ft deep on the Michigan side of the lake. Can’t confirm completely because my fishfinder doesn’t work that deep. Who knew?

8/8 - started out in 110ft and kept trolling North with literally no fish until about 11am... thought it was a skunk in the making. We literally ended up 20/21. A ton of lakers and small silver fish so really could only keep a two man limit.

8/9 - wanted to try the Illinois side. Nothing. Ended up trolling back to the 8/8 spot (took forever) and got our limit.

Also got a mad sunburn. So here are the two biggest from both days.

Wow, report like that makes me regret not making the long run from Hammond this weekend. Great job! How deep were the silvers?

Most were between 80-120. We did get a few on a 300 copper.

I probably should have added that trolling speeds were like 3-3.2mps. Not sure what depth that puts the 300 at.
