Looking at the wind forecast we really thought today would be the day to get offshore and try for a Winter Salmon. Actual conditions, however, kept us near shore. We did grab a Lake Trout in 100', but that's the deepest we were comfortable going.

 

Our first fish was a little unexpected. It fought about as good as a stick, but ended up being a beautiful 8-10lb Steelhead that ate a Bay Rat Lures S3 Green Frog behind an Offshore OR-12 inline board. After that we picked away at Brown Trout. It was a close split between Chinook diver bites and flat lined sticks. The color of the day was definitely chartreuse. Bay Rat's in Jail Bird, Green Frog, and Lemon Lime all took fish.

I was offshore on a customers boat Monday showing him how to run his Electronics package I sold him. We marked them out in 250-300' with bait.

Ah......Rick.....what were you doing out deep?  Stay away from those funny marks out there as they are most definitely Burbot.  Or at least wait until I catch the first king for 2021!  I can't believe you are making me dewinterize my boat now......

If something bad happened on the lake this time of year, is help available? Does the Coast Guard or sheriff's dept. keep a boat ready for rescue, or are we on our own?  I try to hit the lake by mid March, but have been uneasy about heading out this early.

There's not much help, and the cold water doesn't give you much time. In my opinion fishing the shoreline you have a chance, but offshore cell service is spotty and if anything happens it's over.
