Sunday 6/24 - Today was one of our last days off until mid September, so we took this opportunity to grab the old man, and some friends and go have a relaxing day of derby fishing. We left the dock around 5:30/6 o’clock, and motored down to the ladders. The intention today was to scrape kings off the bottom in 100-150’ of water looking for a derby leaderboard fish. The picture got better the further East we trolled. by the end of the day the best picture was from the Glass House to Devils Nose.

We ran our three Cannon DT10’s pulling meat and flies, two wire divers pulling flies, and three coppers (300, 400, 500) pulling meat and spoons. The water got colder as we trolled East, and when it was ideal the screen lit up. Big Kings were hanging in the lower third of the water column. Our downriggers took some nice fish on meat, but it just wasn’t grabbing as many as we’d liked, so we pulled the meat on them and sent down 10†Dreamweaver Spin Doctors with an A-TOM-MIK B Fly and a Hoss Fly and started to light up the big guys. Our divers were taking whacks with green chips and A-TOM-MIK green crinkles, a Dreamweaver clear green dot Spin Doctor pulling an A-TOM-MIK Hammer Lime Live, and a Dreamweaver Green edge Spin Doctor pulling an A-TOM-MIK Pro Am. Lastly, The long coppers had a pretty good bite going on with meat.

We took some really nice fish. The biggest Salmon to hit the deck was 27lbs. Our catch consisted of a nice mixed bag of fish. We landed 15 Salmon (all year classes), two Lake Trout, a few Steelhead, and a beautiful 11lb Brown Trout. It was a very relaxing day with a nice lunch afterwards at the Black North Inn. Currently, our fish is in 6th place, but I don’t see it staying in the top 20 by the end of the Summer derby.




Tripled on sharks!
