St Joe. Saturday and Sunday


Recommended Posts

Well finally got out again. Lake Trout saved our Bacon Both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday we started inside off Rocky Gap and did not have a hit until we got out to 70FOW. First fish was a nice Coho on 6 Color. Stinger Orange killer. Then it went dead. Worked out to 90 FOW and was marking a lot of fish on the bottom. Put 2 riggers down and bounced the bottom with Green SpinDoc. 8", with a chartreuse red dot Spin N Glo , and A Mtn Dew E' Chip paddle with a green p-nut(Wobble Glo). Both pounding the sand, and about 6' behind the ball. Steady action once we got them going. Speed was critical 1.9 to 2.2 mph, the slower the better. Ended Saturday with 9 fish 4 Lake trout, 1 Coho land 4 small Kings (all kings released) Sunday Went straight out set lines in 80 FOW and trolled to 120, Stead action on Lake trout until we limited out on them, ( more small kings released). We did use some different tactis today. tried to catch some of the Kings we saw suspended around 80 down, but nothing doing. Finished our day Running in to the beach off the Chalets. and Picked up another Lake Trout (released) in 12FOW on a Stinger Orange Killer off a rigger down 9". Weather Great, Moon(Full) Go figure moon had to be an issue. My question is Where are all of the Salmon and Steelhead?

Mike,

Sat 5/2 started late about 7:30 ran stright out from the pierhead, stopped in 50FOW and trolled out. Had a sreamer on a Downrigger 25 ft down in 60 FOW using a SWR and Mixed Veggie spoon. Could not stop the fish and hook pulled out. Caught a Coho on a Firetiger Stick bait off a board about 9:00. Caught (2) small kings and released them. Sunday got an earlier start and went south. Started in 70 FOW and trolled out to 100. Another small king hit a 150 ft Copper off a board with a Green Dolphin UV spoon. Heard from a buddy that caught 2 Lakers in 70 FOW so we ran back in. Trolled till 10:30 when we got hit by 2 nice Kings again off Copper. Seems like the full moon really made an impact on fishing this past week-end.

That was my thought, full moon and marking lots of silver fish with no takers. Moon was without a doubt a factor. Just sayin I have never had good fishing on a full moon.
