Report from Monday 10/09/17
First time out in almost 2 months :( , but after seeing that the conditions looked decent I had to go out.
Left the pierheads at 5:45 am and headed straight east, keeping an eye on the water temp as I progressed out towards deeper water.
60-150 fow I was reading a surface temp of 45, once I hit 150 fow I saw it rise to 47 degrees so this is where I set up.
Was a solo trip unfortunately so I decided to run:
A pair of stealthy leadcore ( 3 and 6 color)
-Magnum Wonderbread on the 6 color
-Magnum Mongolian beef on the 3 color
1 slide diver out 110 LOC
-flasher and pro-king raven spoon (purple and black)
Started my troll headed straight east in hopes that I might find a more significant temp break where fish could be concentrated but from 150-270 fow it was a constant 47 degrees.
Turned back towards shore at 270 and had my first bite in 220 fow on the 6 color with wonderbread. Nice 6-8 lb steelhead.
Kept heading West and in 170 fow had a triple,
ended up getting the 6 color in with a 5 lb laker and the slide diver in with a nice 9 lb steelhead.
Concentrated my efforts the rest of the morning on the same area in 160-180 fow and was rewarded at 11:00 am with a beautiful wild 2 year old king that looked more like a tuna.
Final tally the wonderbread got 3 of the 4 fish, I wish someone could explain to me why salmon and trout like it so much haha!
Hoping to get out again friday morning (weather permitting), its just too hard to hang up the salmon gear for the year :(.
Tight lines and get out while you can!
