Last trip of the season...

Recommended Posts

We'll be heading out of Genny late tomorrow morning for the last trip of the season. Would anybody be able to offer any tips?

Thanks!

I would try the river mouth at first light and then head off shore. It sounds like temp is really deep way off shore. Look under the reports page and look at pikehunters report. It sounds like the 70' or less zone was best.

Skunk'd,

We've been fishing off shore out of I-Bay most of the summer and fall to avoid the combat fishing in close and we've done well most times. We were fishing 250 fow+, never more than 400 fow. The down temp. was deep until we pulled the boat two weeks ago. That being said, our best program were 10 color cores, surface planers with a 3/8 ounce keel weight, and for the deeper fish riggers parked between 80 and 120 feet down. That was our typical program day in and day out. Our only limitation was choppy water out of the North and East which made the ride out seem to take forever.

Our best lures were: DW SS orange crush in both silver and gold (NK version), watermellon, various NK glow lures, and 42 second. Mostly we caught steelhead, but quite a few immature kings as well. Fish the "schools" of steelhead - once you hit one, keep hammering that area and you're bound to catch more.

Flasher/Flies were slow, but white/white spinnies with green dots with white glow, hammer and purple mirage flies caught fish most times.

Most times we were the only boat out deep and it was nice to get away from the pack and have the water to ourselves. Just watch the weather/wave forecasts b/c it was bumpy most times.

Good luck....

- Chris
