Had an all day trip on Wednesday with a group of past clients. We started out fishing salmon but the first landed fish was a Cisco. One small king later the copper wire rig took off like a lightning bolt, fish on.
It was a battle while the fish screamed out more line. Look out, downrigger line screaming with another king. What seemed like forever and the fish continuing to cross over each other the fishermen kept dancing to try and keep the lines from crossing. After fifteen minutes, we saw the fish that hit the downrigger, a nice three year old King. Then it happened, one more run and it was gone.
Still had a King on the wire. Papa battled that fish and was almost back to the leader and it spit the bait. A lot of excitement and nothing to show.
Trolled north out of the harbor and boom, we boated a two year old salmon. Now the sun was higher in the sky and the salmon bite pretty much ended.
As we got north, we switched baits and started trolling for Lake Trout. over the next two hours we landed ten trout and had several other hits.
Tally at the end of the day, ten trout, two salmon and a cisco. It was a great day.
