This Sunday afternoon’s trip was no exception. These guys came up from the southern tier and decided that a 2pm departure would be great, and that’s what we did. I managed to get 4 rods in the water before we hooked up with our first fish, I was starting to think it was going to be a slow night, lol. But after the first fish broke the ice, it would be steady for the remainder of the trip. The guys brought a mixed bag of fish to the boat, lots and lots of brown trout, some cohos, a couple of small kings, and even a few husky lakers. We fished in the 7-12 feet of water range, and water temperature seemed to average around 44-45, with great water color. The only pattern to lure selection that seems to stand out has been that our stick baits are doing better than our spoons. Sticks 100’ behind the boards did better than our spoons 100’ behind the boards. Our weighted flat lines also took their fair share of fish too.
This spring fishing has been the best I’ve ever experienced, and at this point it shows no sign of slowing down. The LOC derby starts this Friday, there’s still a lot of cold water out there, but things are looking good, and some kings are showing up. We’ll
see what the weather brings in this week, and hoping things will come together to get some big kings in the boat like we did last year at this time.
If you're interested in a brown trout trip, and getting in on some of this historic fishing, contact us and let's set something up. These browns will only be for another 2-3 weeks, so don't think about it too long!
