Launched at Oro 9 around 7:30 AM and put the cannon ball down 15ft in 30fow, with a long 125ft lead from the ball. Ran my favorite KOHO spoon.

As I went into deeper water, I kept dropping the ball lower, but no action and I finally marked a few fish in 80fow. Did a few circles, but no hits.

Decided to check over by the Oro Reef as well as around a 95ft hole I know. 6-7 years ago it was a consistent producer. Didn't mark any fish. Headed back to where I had marked the fish in 80fow. Anchored and jigged, but not many fish around now and no hits.

Ran down to Oro 6 and checked around the reef there, nothing.

Saw a collection of boats in the middle of the lake and went out and investigated. There were whities there in 80fow, but there was such a strong North bound current, I couldn't keep my heaviest lure under the boat. There were around a dozen boats around and while I marked fish, I never saw anyone land a fish.

I then went and checked the East side of Long Shoal, but never marked a thing . I then went and checked around the Fox Island shoal, but again, no fish. Checked the South and West sides of Long Shoal, but again no fish.

Ran back up to Big Bay Point and trolled the trough back towards Oro 6. Marked some fish in deep water , but no takers.

Used all my usual spoons as well as I tried trolling the lipless crankbait.

Pulled the rod at 2:30Pm and called it a day. Beauty day to be out there-Sunny, calm and warm.

To sum it up, no hits, no runs and no errors.

Glad you had a nice day to tour. And good luck since you did not have to touch or clean fish. I am thinking to try one more day.

While you toured the lake I stayed put on fox shoal.
Morning chop made fishing tough and the fish weren't in any concentration.
Saw maybe 4 fish landed through out the day but personally only had a few soft taps seemed the fish weren't in a biting mode. At least with the breeze kept the bugs down.
Well maybe one more shot tomorrow before I switch to salmon and bluffers.
