Fished a total of 29 hours this past weekend , kicking of the dock in the dark every morning. Fished in shep Browns until it was light enough to see, caught a total of 5 salmon in Shepard throughout the weekend all small salmon 16-18 inches. Mainly trolling live bait on single hooks and sliding bait rigs, had an abundance of hits on the bait rig but the fish would just smack the shiner around and kill it but not get the hook. Catching most of our fish over deeper water (40-70ft) with about 3-4 colors of led core. Lost a good salmon on Saturday trolling the gut by timber island headed to Saunders fish jumped out of the water two or three times and the last jump had some powerful head shakes that shook the hook free. Had some luck in Saunders trolling near the witches catching 3 lake trout in a 15 minute span during mid day hot lure being the wayno top gun. Downrigger produced one hit late afternoon coming up by cattle landing back into sheps had us all crossed up with lead core lines and got a double on while tangled and managed to land both fish. Sunday proved to be slow but we picked and poked with a few salmon early morning til the live bait bite died right off and decided to bounce the bottom with suttons and large shiners looking for the lakers marked several nice fish in a hole that produced our 7.28lb laker the last derby and had some hit and spits but no takers. If plans fall into place I'll be headed to the LCI to hopefully get on some fish to make up for the poor weekend at the winni derby all in all though would lake to give a shout out to the boys scouts for really hitting it out of the park with the derby I feel they did an excellent job .
