I was very busy over the course of the 4th of July Holiday !
Thanks to both "old" and some "new" customers. Fish were biting! Browns were in 40 - 50 feet of water, anywhere between 15 - to 30 feet down of the riggers. Warrior spoons and stingers were taking most of the fish.
We also, tied into some salmon this weekend both off Calf Island and in the Shipping Lanes in between Gallo and the Duck islands. Salmon were taken on dipsey divers back 200 feet, with flasher fly combos, and off the riggers.
Please note the pictures I took from the Phillip Oliver Party....kids love fishing! And when they spend a day on the water reeling in some monstrous trout the end result sometimes is a nice nap on the way in after the trip.
I recently had the pleasure of working with several local captains with the Henderson Harbor Guiding Association in donating a 4 hour trip for 35 kids from Henderson - Belleville Schools. We all had a good time. We at first tried our hand at the Bass fishing for a few hours since that has been pretty good over the last several outings. Normally we have been limiting out at the "Lonely Tree", but the morning I took the kids there we really did not have alot of hits; and we lost a real nice one at the side of the boat, so I decided to try and catch the kids some of the Browns which have been very consistent all this spring. We found the kids a few browns, then went back in around noon.
The West View Lodge cooked up the catch for the kids and we had a great Shore dinner for all the kids and the Captains that donated there time and there boats. The weather held out for us, and I even was able to teach the kids a few of the "super secret" names for some of the lures we used (Fat Nancy, Blue Tuxedo, Sunkist, Baby Shower). LOL!!
