The kings that were present last weekend seemed to almost disappear, so the word on the street was to go long. We decided to forgo the short program in the early AM on Saturday and just head out to 250 fow and drop in, troll east and see what it brought. We started fishing around 6:00am and did not have any action until 8:00 am in 340 fow. We proceeded to pick away at them going 9 for 11 with 380 fow being our sweet spot. We found 2.6 to 2.8 mph to be the most productive with a spoon assortment with blue, purple, green and silver being a main component. The take consisted of 7 bows, 1 laker and a small king. The best method proved to be 2 , 3 and 4 color on boards with wire dipseys out at 100 loc taking a couple fish as well.
Sunday AM - We headed out with a couple friends to the same ground in the early AM. We found the 54 degree water temp from Saturday had dove to 48 after the NE blow on Saturday eve, but we found action almost immediately and found fish past 400 fow as well. The SW winds kicked up a few hours later, so we pulled the pin to head in. We ended up going 7 for 11 with a few jumping rainbows getting the best of us. The program was identical to Saturday but we tried a few offerings 80 to 100 feet down with no success as others did report some fish deeper. The reports once back on shore were that others also fared well in 190 fow and beyond with mixed catches with a few reported larger kings.
GO FISHING, IT'S FUN !!!!
