The planets finally aligned and both boys and I had a free morning Sunday to get out on the big lake since early March. Conditions could not have been nicer. First lines were in the water northwest of the donut at 6:05. We deployed a spread of 2 riggers, 2 dipseys, and 5 flat lines/cores and pointed the Lund east. Shortly after getting them all in the 5 color with dodger/peanut put a nice chucky coho in the boat for my oldest. It was a rather steady pick from there on out, but no real lure or presentation pattern showed itself throughout out the morning. 15-22 feet down seemed to be our best part of the water column. Spoons, body baits, dodgers/peanuts all took fish. We did have a SWR down with various mag spoons most of the morning hoping for a roaming king but were not successful on that front. West troll however was better for us by a good 2 to 1 margin. Stayed in 40-55FOW most of the morning, Pulled lines at 10:45 ending 11-14 on the day.
