Fished solo on Friday 10/18.  Nothing in the 90 to 120 FOW range with temps around 40 degrees, nothing on the graph. Nothing in the 15 to 25 FOW range with temps around 44 but bait was abundant. 

Hats off to Santa. Glad you found them. I am just not willing to go out 22 miles into the lake in my boat - especially solo.

Santa found the fish.

Left the Manty dock ~ 9:30 AM Sunday, took a 22 mile boat ride due east.  Surface temps from 40 FOW to 300 FOW were about 40 degrees, we hit 39 just before hitting 300 FOW.  Once we got outside of 300, started to rise.  Was hoping to find 50, the highest we found was 49.  After a nice cruise, set up in ~ 500 and started working.

We worked a nice stretch that went from 450 to 550 in a pretty short span most of the day.  Ended up 10 for 13, with two 17 pound kings (one stocked, one natural), one 12 pound king (natural), the rest bows and kings from 2 to 9 pounds.  Best presentations were a blue spoon down 69 on a rigger, green flasher green fly down 50 on a rigger, 5 color lead core with various spoons, and 250 coppers.  Pulled lines around 4:00 PM, wet 23 mile boat ride back to port through thick fog.

Effin' fantastic day, what I love about fall fishing.  You don't find 'em very often, but when you do it's a blast.

Hoping for at least one more shot this season.  Need another day of low wind, not looking good for a while.

Santa back to 9

Sadly, very few opportunities to fish the next month.  With yesturday's fantastic weather, decided to tell The Man to ram it; left work at 10:00 AM, hooked up the boat, and headed east.

Left the Manty harbor ~ 1:30 PM, took an approximate 90 degree heading until we hit 300 and then set up.  Surface temps were ~ 59 on the surface until we hit about 220 FOW, from 220 to 260 it dropped a degree or two.  

Started setting up ~ 2:15 PM with a NNE troll.  Probe had 56 degrees down ~ 40', started marking a decent amount of fish from 40 to 60 foot down.  Had a mixed spread with 5 color LC the highest, two riggers spread from 35 to 80 down, 200 coppers, 300 coppers.  Later tried 3 color leadcore.

Worked in as shallow as 280, as deep as 380 trolling different directions but ultimately ended up pushing north (ended up probably close to the point).  Marked a good number of fish, most between the 320 and 350 depth range.  A few small bait pods.  Most of the marked fish were between 40 and 70 foot down.

We ended with 4 in the box; 10 pound bow on 5 color spoon, two ~ 6 pound bows also on 5 color spoons.  4 pound stocked king on 40' black/purple spoon.  Tossed back smaller king and two bows (one on 40' rigger, other two on 5 color).  All hits on spoons, no flasher/fly bites.

Pretty fogy on way out until we broke beyond 3-4 miles off-shore, then visibility was good but very overcast.  Probably around 4:00 PM the sun broke through the fog/clouds, I'd say we had most hits while the sun was shining.  We trolled until the sun was hitting the horizon.

Fabulous afternoon on the water, would love to do it again soon but not going to happen for me.  Was encouraged with the number of fish we marked, and bites we got.  No really big bows or three-year old kings, but nice action.

First picture is what we found in the bellies of the fish we cleaned.  Second picture was taken as we pulled out last rod; marked three different pods like that in a very small area.  What are those fish down deep?  Whitefish??

Go get 'em!

If the salmon is a slight to medium golden brown color, i would probably smoke the bigger ones, and grill the smaller ones. Once they turn dark brown and blackish color , the flesh is deteriating  and becomes soft and mushy and tastes terrible ! If you push your thumb down on fish's skin, and it doesn't pop back up , its garbage.
