July 18th fishing report
Thanks to the Wickens team for joining us today! We fished back up north of port this am but the bite was a lot tougher than yesterday. We had 8 fish on and boated 5. The water was 20 degrees warmer with very little bait. We lost a monster king on a 3 color lead core / green jeans spoon very first light. The remainder bites were 8 in netminder spindoctor / blue fairways meat rig on a low diver out 100 ft, rigger at 25 with Blue Jean spoon, 4 color leadcore / naked jordo spoon, and 5 color leadcore / orange green proking spoon.
