May 5- shoreline fishing is a bit hit or miss- great one day, slow the next. We fished yesterday and had 7 bites, but only landed 2 of them (the bite was very light). There are sporadic kings around, from shore out to 100 fow (suspended). Fortunately, there are plenty of lakers around. They are reliable, and big (average fish is probably 7-10 lbs). We put a decent hurting on them midday Saturday. They were mostly 70-90 fow, but can be out to 130 on any given day. Perch are still around, but will be making their way out to the lake soon.
April 28- the bite is still good on browns near shore. We fished today and it was frankly too muddy- though we did get our fish after some experimenting. Kings have been a big part of the catch the last week, but they weren’t for us today. Guys to the east did them today, but guys did them west a few days ago. The bite had been inside of 25 fow. Still lakers to be had outside of 75 fow as well.
April 18- Still excellent fishing near shore for browns, with a few coho and kings mixed in. Stickbaits are best. Also, plenty of Lakers in 100+ fow to be found. In the bay, good pan fishing and bull heading being done!
April 12- we did very well on browns in 8-15 fow to the west today, before the wind blew. A nicer class of fish today all wanted bayrats off the boards. We kept about half of what we caught
April 7- the ice is gone and the fish are chewing. Excellent nearshore fishing for browns, and offshore fishing for lakers. In the bay, there is food fishing for perch near the points, as well as bullhead nearshore and crappie on the south end near the bridge!
Our shakedown wEnt very well, with many fish released!
