Well, as promised a report of the spawn sac size challenge.
I can't really make a determination as to if size actually mattered today or not, but i did learn that the way I tied the spawn sacs worked out well, and the eggs milked nicely even after being frozen, so I guess I cured them right.
Seems like I had everything going against me today though.
Warm Weather - CHECK!
East Wind - CHECK!
High Water - CHECK!
Not the best of days, but still fishing, none the less!
As many shared with me yesterday, the water was extremely high in the rivers, so I ended up at the Kenosha Harbor and the mouth of the Pike River.
Not many jumpers, and I only saw 3 salmon caught all day, but I'm confident in saying that they were there. None caught by myself, but at least I didn't get skunked! I ended up landing about a 15 pound Channel Cat that bit on a spawn sac!?!?! I think it was the quarter sized one...
Oh and a lady caught a sizable Carp....
The guy that I was chatting with and I were kinda baffled by the channel cat, but oh well. Great company, BTW! Thank you for chatting and making the outing more enjoyable if you read this.
I'll post a video of the catches and the day, but I learned an awful lot and had a great time.
