I don't claim to be an expert fisherman ... just a guy who loves to fish and has been blessed for his efforts. I learned a long time ago that in fishing, and in much of life, you get out of it what you put into it. I work hard when fishing, I study a lot, and always try to learn something on every outing. I hope you can use the information I post on this blog to learn something as well. Thanks for following along!

Friday, November 26, 2010.

Decided to venture out with my buddy Troy. Founds a place to hide from the wind below the harbor wall that was actually quite comfortable considering it was 18 degrees with 30 mph winds. Ended up with these 6 fish:

This was my first personal double. Caught the brown on a green and gold Cleo ... hit right at the dock as I was about to pull the bait out of the water. As I was taking the hook out we heard my other rod sliding across the dock. Grabbed it and landed this beautiful male steelie that inhaled a chunk of cured skein fished under a float.

Got this buck steelie on a spawn sack.

Hen brown hit a black/silver X-Rap as it paused between jerks. I was letting it sit in neutral buoyancy for 5 to 10 seconds ... then giving it a small twitch and letting it sit again. This fish just hammered it as it sat still.

Hen brown caught on spawn.

Seeferellon Brown caught while retreiving a spawn sack. It hit while I was cranking the spawn in to go home. Followed it like a muskie would a jerk bait, then grabbed it and turned. The fish swam this line into another float line. As the second line was being dragged along it got hit by ANOTHER brown. This one broke off as Troy tried to free the line / set the hook. Crazy experience you only see on those magical days!


  1. Hope I have half the success tomorrow that you had today. Great job!

  2. Simply amazing...Very nice!
