Friday morning was on fire for me, went 6 for 7. all fish came within 2 hours, was done fishing by 830
mixed feelings!too bad my friend from Wausau decided to head back Thursday night after a very slow day of fishing, only 1 bow all day. So I ended up fishing by myself.
hit water about 4AM... After soaking a couple glow spoons and a blue/glow flasher fly for a couple hours the sun was up and water was beautiful... just no fish in the boat.. Hmmmmm? so I decided to change things up a little and I put on something I love but hadn't caught anything so far this year... Moonshines bloody nose triple fly with a chrome and green flasher went on my 300 copper. I got 2 hits within 20 minutes, so I put same stuff on my orange slide diver lite bite 100' out on setting 3. Not 5 min later got a double on those 2 setups... once I got the 300 copper in, the other fish was out almost 600', got that one in the boat dispite the tangled mess on the floor of the boat with the other fish, rod, net and tackle etc etc... haha! that's half the fun of fishing alone.. I got them both back out and reeled in my 2 color lead and replaced it with a 5 color and chrome flasher and same fly... less than 10 min later it got popped. all 3 got hit 1 more time before I had everything pulled in. ended up with 2 kings and 4 bows (yes 1 went back). biggest was 14lb bow for the smoker rest were all good grillers between 5 and 10lbs. fun morning fishing just wish I had someone else with me... woulda been cool to pull a 2 man limit. fish came in 200 - 300 fow.
P.S. very unusual for me... I was fishing 3.0 - 3.8 sog. with flasher flies??? interesting. I don't ever typically fish that fast unless I am fishin all spoons for bows which isn't very often.
