Wednesday was the first time I’ve tried fishing the full moon evening bite but picked the wrong time to do it. Water was extremely cold and fish were scattered and very little bait in 95 to 115 feet of water off the filter. Took a lake trout on a Road Kill mag pro king on a seven color just before dark. Not another sniff so pulled lines at 12:30.
Crazy cousins and I grabbed a couple of hours sleep and got back up at 4 AM to hit it again. Set lines at 4.5 north working 90 to 115 feet of water and never turned around until we got to 15 N. 11.5 north 90 feet of water in the fog surrounded by too many boats the five color fired off with a mag blue night getting a 18.5 pound king. Not long after the same rod took shaker king then a 4 pound brown. Too much traffic to turn back and the bites and hoped there would be fewer boats north and still a couple of fish
The 300 copper with a blue UV Big Al fish flash 3 fly teaser and Brad’s Seahawk took 2 Lake Trout. Turned back south at 15 north and in 90 feet of water at 13.7 N. 65 foot rigger with white lighted pro troll and super frog took a 24 pound king. On the troll back to the way point 110 LOC Wire with same set as rigger took about a 9 pound king. Fished another 4 hours and zero bites.
Surface temps ranged from 66 to 53° and down 25 was 45°. Speed on the DRX-10 2.7- 3.0. Delighted to have a decent catch when its been so slow. I didn’t have any trouble falling asleep before the sun went down.
ps cousins are 6'3" and 6' 6" so made the fish look a little smaller.
