Great day on the water, it was like glass out there. In the morning the fog was VERY heavy. Once it burned off it was an amazing day. Someone forgot to tell the Salmon that they hadn't been fished for since last September and they were supposed to be going after lures. We were on the water at 530am, left at about 330pm...not a SINGLE bite the whole day. We trolled Meredith Bay, past Governors Island, up to Bear Island, circled the whole thing, then through Timber Island, Mark and Round, finally back over to Governors and over to the Weirs and back along the ledge in Meredith bay. Water temps were 44-50.8.
We ran mooselooks, DB smelts, tandem streamers with a dodger, Top Guns, etc....Had 4 lines with Lead on the planer boards, tried 1 color, 2 colors and 3 colors. Also 2 downriggers from 3-15 feet down. All lines had 50ft of flouro as leaders and speed was 1.5-2.5mph. We did everything we could but nothing got a fish to hit today. Banman, me and Brad were out there and gave it our best.
We were marking TONS of fish on the finder, but all seemed to be 30+ feet down.
I hope others had better luck!
Scott, don't worry about it!
I was out fished almost the exact same pattern you did and struggled!
We only had a few hits and 1 donkey. Gorgeous day!!!
Everyone was happy to be out. Until I couldn't get up to plane! Swapped plugs and filter, we will see if that is the solution...
On the water tomorrow AM with the fam for some Easter fun!
6 lines, 6 hours, not a bite on Squam , SQUAMED AGAIN, lol ????????? Water was allmost 52 on the surface.
Same story or close to it from allot of folks we talked to on both lakes ???
You Guys should know better then to fish on Easter weekend Bad Luck I guess the devil made you due it hope the almighty is forgiven and don't put the Hex on Ya All for the Year LOL SS
LOL thanks guys!! I actually saw a few salmon and lakers in the shallows, but they just swam away whenever we got close.
Maybe next week if the water warms up some more they will turn on.
Back out on the water today. It was slow- no fish- 1 hit on guide special at 3 colors- dragged hardware and live bait. Marked tons of fish and bait between 60 and 130 feet?? Tried to jig up a few with no luck.
Slow!!! wasn't the word for today 4 lines 6hrs 57 lure changes...but the up side is NO HOOK WOUNDS!!! It beats working.BARRY
I was gonna say I did my part in the battle against hook wounded fish. I did not hook wound a single fish in 9 hours of fishing!!
I cant take credit for this joke, Slip_Knot (Craig) sent me a text saying it. Was good stuff!!!
Beats working which is where I have been all week! No fishing for me until next week! So sad.
I too can brag that i had no hook wounded fish. Just 1 hook wounded finger. 6 hours, 4 rods, no hits. But it was a beautful day. And Tessie was awsome for her first time out. Happy Easter.
Looks like it was a great day all around for the Anti Hook Wounding campaign. Looks Like a few folks using live did vey well.
"2 trips, no Salmon"
Got one nice bow and my buddy got 22" beauty of a salmon that was almost 4lbs. My other friend got 3 salmon on Ossipee to 20 inches the same day. I stopped at the bridge in Wolfboro and had a few beautiful salmon smash my fly but missed each time. I guess I'm a little rusty. I did manage to catch a Mack dumptruck by the antenna on one of my backcasts. I released to to dump another day...
LMAO Joe, I remember a certain person towing the barge to Ames Farm for it's maiden voyage on Winni, also trolling down the road, unfortunatly he didn't catch anything besides a spooled reel LMAO Good Memories Take Care God Bless LOL Dave Who's still soak and wet from that day and trying to get the barge back on the trailer LMAO
Friday Night the final hour before dark, lost a big hit on 5 colors of leadcore.
was mostly practicing my trolling for Lake Trout Technique, picked up a beauty 21 inch Salmon dragging an emerald shinner threw the mud at a 20 foot depth. 30 mins before pitch darkness.... very weird? but true.
