Not fair to rate a 3 because we only fished a short time, but did manage 3 to the boat and one coming unbuttoned before making it to net range. The day's mission was to get my 4yr old granddaughter...

Hard to rate trip a 2, but wasn't a 3, and although targeted species was kokanee, we didn't catch any, but did catch some RBT. 0430 departure put us at the boat barn right at 6am. Unload/load gear,...

Yeah, I'm rating it a 1 because, for the first time in I forget how long, we got skunked. Nada. Zero. One takedown about 2hrs in but nothing more. On the bright side, water was calm, we spent half ...

Am rating this trip a 3 because surface conditions played a part in our fishing which, even though we caught more quality fish, I believe it also slowed the bite some. We went up Friday evening so ...

Nice day yesterday, a bit breezy and chilly early, but I don't mind "wind trolling". ;-) Like last time, we just fished two lead core rigs, no need for any more even though we both have 2 rod permi...
