Finally got in a real fishing trip where we started fairly early and fished to noon. Headed to 3 corners and mostly fished Michigan waters in the 85'. 6 rods spread, went with 4 downriggers with long leads and 150' and 200' copper on the outriggers. Flashers at 65' and 60' down (marking larger fish there) and spoon at 40', dodger and green Howie fly at 35' and on the 150' copper. Stinger sized spoon on the 200' copper. Ended up 14 for 20 with mixed back of LT, coho, and King but lost 2 steelhead which would have rounded out the fish box nicely. Released all the LT's and smaller Coho so brought 7 back to the dock. Bait was scarce at first but seem to show up well a little later so just worked the same patch of water the whole time sticking to the mantra of not leaving fish to find fish! Flasher/Dodgers did seem better but bigger coho came on spoons.
