Made our first trip down to St. Joe on Saturday morning. Got a late start because my crew showed up late so we had lines down at 8am and pulled them at 2pm. Started out front doing circles in and around the mud line with the majority of boats. At 10:30 still didn't have anything going so we decided to pull lines and head deeper looking for trout. Found a shaker king along for the ride and hooked a coho while pulling lines to get the skunk out of the box. Spent the rest of the morning in 65-80 FOW with 70-75 FOW being best, straight out and to the north with a N/NE troll at 1.9-2.3 being the most productive. Picked up 5 lakers including a double header, 2 more coho, and went 1 for 2 on big kings landing a 15lber and losing another of similar size at the back of the boat. Finished up 10 for 11 overall with 5 lakers, 2 kings, and 3 coho. Here's what worked:

  • Fire Tiger J11 - flatline 100' back - shaker king (thrown back)
  • Orange/gold J9 - flatline 100' back - coho
  • Mag Lemon Ice - High diver, 100' leader, out 200' - laker
  • Mag Modified Blue Dolphin - High diver, 100' leader, out 150' - lost king
  • Tin Can/green/chartreuse spin n glow - low diver ticking bottom - laker
  • Tin Can/green/chartreuse spin n glow - low diver ticking bottom - laker
  • Tin Can/green/chartreuse spin n glow - rigger on bottom - laker
  • Tin Can/green/chartreuse spin n glow - low diver ticking bottom - laker
  • 6" red alderton dodger and fly - 30' copper - coho
  • Mag Modified Blue Dolphin - High diver, 100' leader, out 150' - 15lb king
  • Fire Tiger J11 - flatline 100' back - coho

Great day on the water and amazing weather for April.
