Thursday - We put in a 12 hour day on the water. It was mediocre at best until 3pm when we found a temp break on the boarder in 250' of water. We took 4 matures in an hour, so that gave us a starting point come Friday.

 

Friday - We weighed the biggest box of the event on day 1. The break was still there, but we fished it as it was dissipating. A-TOM-MIK Blue Glow Hammer/Smartfish Wonderbread started the morning off, but Familiar Bite meat and Whip Flash paddles did most of the damage. A-TOM-MIK 400 and 500 coppers, 150 divers, and our deep Cannon downrigger. We boxed 12, lost 5, and sent back 2 unders.

Saturday - How do you not go back to that water? Although we knew it went away we had to try it. Well, it was only good for 1 fish. We picked and ran to the bar in hopes we could salvage the day on Cohos, but that was a bust. We went fishing from there and were able to box 5 fish. We lost 6 or 7 fish, and had a few shorts. Just a few bad decisions that led to a poor performance. 

 

Sunday - We fished with the pack in the morning on the inside, but it was dead in there. We pointed it north, and once out there we located another temp break. We worked that the rest of the day boxing 11 fish, losing 7, and tossing back 4 or 5 shorts. We weighed the second biggest box of the event on day 3. Day 3 was more of a spoon bite than meat for us. Top spoons were UV Caddy Shack, UV Black Tuxedo, and UV Two face took a majority of our fish on A-TOM-MIK coppers, wire divers out 150', and our Cannon downriggers in the top 80'.

Another nice finish for the Yankee Troller team. Good job Rick and crew. Seems like a lot of lost fish though? Do you guys normally drop that many fish per outing or was that the exception in this tournament?

No, we don't typically miss that many. They just weren't hitting great. Lots of the fish we landed were hook poorly.
