My daughter and I took the new boat out for our second break in session on Sunday morning. We got a late start and were on the lake around 10am. Started by running over to the small end of the lake to see if we could mark any fish.
We don't have downriggers on the boat yet so we're limited to using leaded line. We fished that end of the lake for a couple of hours with no luck using several different setups, including a variety of Dick nite dodgers with hoochies and spinners tipped with tuna corn. We didn't see many fish on the screen, but when we did see them they were between 24' and 36'.
Around noon we decided to give the area around the boat launch a try. Made a couple of passes from the buoy at the launch to the North. On the second pass we finally had some action. My daughter had switched to a RMT dodger in green with pink splatter and a Brad's cut plug (pink magic) tipped with corn dipped in Super Dipping Sauce. She was at 2 colors on the leaded line and landed a small but feisty kokanee which we took a quick pic of and released.
Water temps were right at 50 degrees so fishing should be picking up soon. Great day to be out on the water even though the fishing could have been better!
