All day action
If you haven’t been out for awhile now is the best time to fill the freezer with Chinooks, Coho and trout. In recent weeks the fish have been deep but not any more. There are fish down deep but the best action has been 35 to 65 feet down. Thirteen year old Master Jack Hansen battled this sixteen pound two ounce Lake Trout up from 100 feet down. The trophy came on a Vulcan Magnum Monkey Puke Glow Spoon. Vulcan spoons are made by http://www.badgertackle.com
Our best presentations are 8 & 10 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 40 to 75 down. Fish have been on regular and magnum spoons in a blue and silver or green and silver pattern. Our best boat speed is 1.7 to 2.0 mph on the Depth Raider. Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 50 to 125 feet of line out with the ring.
Cold water is in and there is an all day bite from the break wall and out to 150 feet. With all the current troll southwest to northeast. Set up in 60 and troll northeast. Out in front of the water filtration plant is a good option for small boat anglers the fish seem to be closer to shore in that location. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!
