Our sixth and final club tournament had 11 boats participating. Fishing seems to be turning around and we had 8 boats weigh in 10 fish. Doctor’s Orders had an impressive catch today weighing in 116.5 pounds for a 1st place finish. This was followed by Fish N Crew with 82.8 pounds to keep them in first place for the year. Ruggs was in 3rd to keep him the rookie boat of the year. Smokin’ Fish only had 2 people in the boat and weighed in 10 fish and had a 5th place finish good job.

Coho was the fish of the day called by Doctor’s Orders the tournament boat and they were pretty tough to catch. It was a Steelhead Day out there and most of those fish were caught anywhere between 150’ and 210’ of water. There were a lot of Kings in the 75’ to 110’ water column and mostly 2 and 3-year-olds were caught. South of Winthrop Harbor is where the heavier catches of Lake Trout and a few nice Kings were caught. For good Steelhead action just go straight out of the harbor and turn left or right. It has been a spoon bite for the most part on 8 colors of lead all the way down to 350’ of copper.

Congratulations to the top 3 boats this year.
