sandy creek Hamlin 6/24


Recommended Posts

A bit of a late start this am.. set gear around 6:45 in 120 fow straight out of shoot and trolled no further west than the nose. spent most of trip in 180-220 with a few pokes shallower. big weenie meat on 265-320 dipsey was stellar and this was my first success running meat so that was awesome. decent rigger action from 66'- 120' down . Rigger bite was great from 11-200 ish. wonderbread, nbk, glow corn, melon all took fish. went roughly 18/25. lost more fish after the NE wind picked up. the bigger kings came in 50-52 degree water rather than colder. kept a total of 4 fish and all were empty. biggest king 19 ish and steelie 9.5 ish. A great day to be out for sure! Good luck to everyone this weekend! BTW ... I discovered an easy way to remove copious amounts of fleas from your line.... hold section of line tight with both hands such that the wad of fleas is between your hands.. next run the line over the corner of the lid of your cooler while you also rub line from side to side...mine has a textured top (coleman extreme) it removes every flea and takes substantially less time than pinching or chewing off!
