We arrived at the launch at Keller at 7:15 and headed out and got our lines in the water. The first three fish came pretty quickly and were all 12 inch kokanee. The next strike came on the sidewinder planer and was a vicious take down. The fish came air born behind the boat with two big jumps and broke off my 15 pound leader 6 inches above the lure! A big kokanee? I won't ever know but it sure got my blood pumping. The next 4 or 5 fish were nice rainbows around 18 inches. Until this point all the action had been on the planers and surface lines and finally the downrigger at 17ft goes off. It ends up being a beautiful 18 inch kokanee! We fished until 2pm and headed home. We kept our speed between 1.3 - 2 mph and orange and pink Apex were the hot lure tipped with pink corn soaked in Super Dipping Sauce. It was a great start to the new year!
