This past weekend has had it’s up and downs but overall it was a great weekend. I started out Friday evening after a line of thunderstorms passed and ended up 4-8 in only a few hours of fishing with a good friend. Sunday i got out with new clients who asked if I could come on their boat and show them how to run it. With the lack of gear, I couldn’t have been happier how the day went. We ended up going 7-13 and the biggest fish was a 15lb steelhead! Monday i decided to make a quick solo run and had to go hunting fish because the water I wanted to fish was extremely warm top to bottom but after 6 hours I managed going 5-7(or 8) and tossed back a small brown. Tuesday I got out with another buddy who doesn’t get to troll very much due to a busy work schedule. The morning started out quick but tapered off as quick as it started but then once the major feed time started so did the bites. We ended the day with 8 fish and a laker shy of another grand slam.
