  1. Its different every year. Whatever weather pattern that developes within the last week of this month will set the tone. Right now were all at 100% of great fishing from right now to June (Yup ive been thru years where browns are still close in June) so we will really have to see in a couple of weeks where we actually stand... But its getting close.....roll the dice on the weather...
  2. Beautiful day here today. There is ice at the south end but by the chute it was relatively clear. Not much ice pack out on the lake as well. The water level was low when it froze so you could see a lot...Stays this way could be early iceout....
  3. Yea but I like to run that thing lol... I thought I would pass something in here that ive been working on. And im not trying to cross any websites or anything like that but basically people have seen me on the water with my kayaks and mostly I used them last year just for the respect to the high waters we had. Honestly the things are a blast and some people in the area I met on the water ,asked me to put together a kayak group thru meetup. Plus there are a few in this thread that do kayak in our area and I thought I would pass it along so here is the link... I just put it together the other day and we already have over 25 members. Again im not cross threading i just thought I would pass this on if anyone is interested....
  4. What a mess lol. We go from extremely frozen to extremely thaw. Bay is still iced over. I would imagine with tonights front moving in the ice will re-harden again. Guess its time to re-button up the hatches lol..
  5. The highs in the next few days are only going to reach 15 plus we got snow warnings posted until tomorrow night. The bays really gonna freeze this year....
  6. Happy Holidays everyone hope u all got your fishing xmas gifts lol...We are in full Winter mode and it looks like the fun is just beginning. Its going to be down toward zero during this week so hopefully the ice fully freezes so these guys can get out there..Have a great week and have a great New Years!!
  7. There may be but Ive never seen any.. Actually I was there last night with the kayak.They are all over the bay this year..Like I said there all skiddish. I think this clear water has something to do with that.
  8. Boy the fish are skiddish this year. The water is really clear so you can see them. They seem to swim away from anything other than another salmon. The clear water makes it this way...Ive tried everything for the past two days, cleos, hotntots, horse hair jigs etc...nothing, they just swim away from them. There all jumping like crazy too....I think this is our 20th year of this stocking here (I may be wrong on that timeline) but maybe these guys are just getting too involved with each other and skiddish due to the clear water. Ill keep at it as long as they are there. They really jump at night constantly and slow that down in the am...
  9. I left dock last night around 4 15, went out to the same area., winds died down it was nice and calm. Im just sitting there casting my naked lady cleo in and one jumps right next to the kayak, and got me wet lol. That was the excitement for me. They are definitely jumping in here for sure. found some dead ones floating too. I think this wet windy weather today should bring more in. its raw up here, waves well over the breakers.
  10. You can put it in at any of the launches. Parkings there too. or you can put it in at the west barrier bar park (across from the state park). That will put you right at the chute. Yea there in here now. Looks like the run is in full swing. Im gonna try tomorrow. This rain brings more in too!!. Im using Little cleo's, some big jigs and of course my hotntots lol..
  11. Well Salmon are now coming into the deep bay. Lost of jumpers. I fished last two days no hits but that should change soon.. Water actually is at a nice level perfect for spoons....
  12. Ok this thread needs some photos lol. Ive been seeing more salmon jumping in the bay. Fish are in the hole and middies are out deep at 250+.Some steelheads and cohos were taken but no biggie really. Pretty soon they will be in close and hopefully we can get some of the black big boys lol. We shall see were gonna try some new tactics lol. However great bay fishing due to this warm weather cannot complain...
  13. Well we certainly are getting into a Fall pattern. Im curious how the run will be this year with all the high water we had. I took my kayak out yesterday and salmon are jumping in the bay. by the chute and by the Marina. There are still kings out there. Best bet is fish the hole for now early am , late night if you can. Should be a great weekend weather wise..
  14. Well it was a fun piratefest weekend for sure. The west winds came up during the week mixing up the fishing for this weekend. Overall it was pretty decent, most working 150-250 down over 100. Water level has dropped so were back to just where we should be for now. Biggest fish I saw was a good 28 lb, Avg daily catch per boat 2-4 since Saturday. Winds kicked up today, its breezy now. Rest of the week looks just fine...
  15. I love hole fishing lol. Well the 5mph speed limit has been lifted. The winds blew pretty heavy out of the west so today is search and destroy. Weather should be fine for this weekend and the FH Challenge (or the "Werner cup" as I call it lol)
