Salvation Army Derby aboard Bellis Program


Recommended Posts

Couple weeks ago I got an invite to fish with nauti troller aboard his boat for the Salvation Army Derby couple days later Bellis Program called looking for a couple extra guys to fish with him and his buddy Rick so we decided it would be fun for All 4 of us to get together and fish on Josh's boat for the weekend..

 

SATURDAY

 

Launched 4:45 a.m. out of Long Point and decided to head to one of Josh's hot spots from the week before.. We ran three cores three coppers four divers and two riggers.. We immediately are hooked up with lots of decent lake trout and few smaller salmon.. Our best luck was coming on white Crush glow UV Spin Doctors and paddles with the Iron Duke UV Wild Child , Golden Boy, and Game Over Flies and Bellis Tackle Spoons took most of our inline board fish and that particular program was good for us all day Saturday never stopped catching fish the whole entire day even with extremely bright sun over the top of us... We ended up locating a spot that nobody was really fishing in and there was some really good deep marks so we dropped the divers and riggers to the fish and we are immediately hooked up with two really good lake trout and while we were battling the lake trout we had a board takeoff going backwards (fire drill because someone was napping in the cuddy lol) and we were locked into a really good rainbow.. We ended up Landing all the fish biggest lake trout we landed all weekend was 9lbs 6 oz and the Rainbow was 6 lb 11 oz. We ended up at that point running the fish in to the weigh station at Myers talk to the guys there for a while and had a good time got to meet some really good people that I have only talked to through the internet.. We left and decided the Lake was a little too rough and we were exhausted so we slowly made our way back to Long Point had some dinner got some z's and got up early for the next day..

 

SUNDAY

 

Woke up Sunday morning realizing we had a full moon and clear skies all night long and figured the fishing was probably going to be a little tougher than it was the day before.. We dropped the same exact program we had been running the day before to the fish and they were not interested so we switched a lot of white spinny's and paddles to bright UV paddles and Spin Doctors and got the Iron Duke Game over fly, UV Wild-Child, Aqua UV and Golden Boy Flies down to them and that seemed to get us going again.. You really had to work hard at getting a true straight troll due to the currents and wind but if you could manage to do that you would catch fish currents were definitely nasty on Sunday.. We caught a lot of lake trout and salmon on Sunday but nothing that would bring us up on the board overall and our board fish did get knocked of mid day Sunday we did however manage a grand slam both days.. We had an awesome weekend hanging out together which we normally never get to do on the lake because we are always fishing against each other lol.. Great job to everyone who fished in the tournament There were some extremely nice fish weighed in and also want to thank Barneys and Bears bait shop for hosting this event they always do a great job...

Nice report. How did the new boards work I was looking at the one on the top with my binoculars I didn't realize how big they are

I'll be honest with you I did not like them from the start but once he set them in they pulled extremely well and pulled big coppers no problem like they weren't even on there... we did get into some pretty good waves Saturday afternoon when the wind switched and came out of the North and it handled them no problem.. the only negative thing I could say about them after seeing them run is storing them they are definitely bulky and take up quite a bit of space but definitely pull extremely well

Mike -You guys had a heck of a team there and that red cooker on the back really completed  things :lol: Nice work on the fishing. I hope to get into the derby next time was too late pulling the trigger this time and thought I'd be on Lake O that day  but opted to fish cayuga anyway because of the wind prediction. Thecurrents were all overthe place  and the fleas were a pain but great day anyway.
