Talked to the park manager at south shore today. He said the construction is "scheduled" to be done end of June. Until then the launch will be free! He also said that the cleaning station and bathrooms are getting upgraded in the new project. As for fishing, yesterday was amazing, today was decent. Finally got on a couple lakers today as well. Tight lines

I was on the Thundersmelt 2.0 and can confirm 40 something fish on yesterday. We did a number on those browns. What a blast!

That will probably never happen again, Tripled up a couple times!

Got a couple of nice ones and kept a few smaller ones for the smoker. 

Stellar day on the Big Pond!

It's unclear to me whether I should consider our adventure an epic morning or simply above average... I'm leaning toward epic since it is march aferall.  Setting lines the two of us were at rod 4 of 6 when the first double fired. Upon clearing those two fish another went. While regaining strength from 1 line in the water towards 6 we caught two more. The first hour was ground hog day of this pattern less than 6 lines running at any given time. 6:45-7:45 yielded 11 fish and 2 lost. The morning continued steadily forward with fish after fish whacking boards. At 11a we decided to call it with 29 fish boated and another 11 lost. For sure my best two man day on the lake ever. Regarding species we figured a coho would mix in eventually but all in all browns ranging from 2-10#.

late afternoon 2 hr troll again. Foggy and cold with a SE breeze, boat control a nightmare.  4-7 all browns.  1 double that were the largest fish both running 10 lbs.  They got revenge though.  The first hit the outside board so I cleared the inside board to the other side of the boat only to have it get hit basically in the prop wash.  Not the first time I have had that happen.  Pretty sure these are C4LN.  They behave a lot differently than domestic strain.  Ended up with a massive tangle of braid that took me 30 min to unwind and I am sure I would have done better had that not taken me out of my pattern.  #9 flicker shad fire tiger 3-5 and #9 pearl white flicker minnow 1-2.  Water was dirty, most hits were in the milky colored water.

Fished 9-12 solo same program as yesterday. Dirty water and 5 fish pretty quickly with one double. Again another great day to be out. However, there was a little boat traffic today. Highlight again was a colored up steelie.

Tsquare86… good for you!

Something about less crowded areas are always more enjoyable.  Good luck out there!
