Trolling Report
« on: June 12, 2021, 10:11:57 am »
Made it out this week for a few short trips.  Bay was flat, temp warm, no wife or kid, why not?!?!

First outing Wednesday pm managed 3/5, 2 smaller and one about 10lbs.  Found areas with warm surface temps and good bait on bottom, figured fish would be scattered with the lack of winds so i covered ground instead of staying put. Long leads in the upper water column with standard size moonshine spoons took fish.

Thursday am slept in but went for a quick troll.  Immediately found fish, they were actively feeding on bait and lots of streaks on the finder.  Never seen such a concrentration of salmon in one area this early in the season, shortened my leads,  Bites were fast, ripping line and gone.  Went 2/6. Meegs and moonshine spoons scattered throughout the column, constantly changed depths to cover the column and entice a strike. 40-70 over 70-90, surface temp 68.  Other areas was 58 that i passed through.  the warm water made me stop and drop lines.   

Im hearing good reports from around the Bay, could be a banner season.  Good luck if you make it out.

Out off Collingwood on Monday, nailed a 5 pound Rainbow on the cheater spoon, purple and green.  Fishing in 90 feet so I am assuming the spoon was around 45 feet down.  Tuesday hooked into a Salmon in 70 FOW.  Lines were at 60, 40 with cheaters on each.  Hit the deep lure at 60.  Marked all the bait at 60 feet.  Zero marks of anything out at 90.  Decided to stay shallower as a result.
