South Haven 9/9/16 2/2


Recommended Posts

After another 0530hr launch, we enjoyed a pleasant 3hr boat ride dragging rattling “J’s” on CU. and spoons on DR’s.  Started marking fish in 90fow so we turned North toward the fleet of bigger boats.  One of which was this tanker headed South so we changed our track and headed West to get out of the way.  Once back in 90fow we tagged this salmon on a #4 rattling J on 150x30# CU, he was one hungry fish.  More arches but no bites so we headed in.  Hit our 2nd. fish in 70fow on a Mag. Grn. Dolphin down 45ft.  What the Hell is a Sheephead doing that far out?  That 12# pound rascal went back in the water.  Eleanor didn’t like that bumpy water and neither did my back but I’ll be ready the next time the lake is quiet.  Hopefully this heat will end and I can get out in the evening.

The meat still had good color when I slabbed him out.  Just out of curiosity I loaded the original picture from my friend camera into my Photoshop program at 100% and checked the tail, NO SPOTS on the lower 1/2.  Just walked out back to my gut pile and the nighttime clean-up crew had worked it over pretty good but the head was still intact and the mouth was a light gray.  So I'd have to agree with ya.  That fish weighed a touch over 8#s.
