Consistent Action, but still waiting on the big push of Coho

We’ve been having coho action every time out, but they seem to be small pods of fish and not the big schools that could show any day. We are marking a lot of bait! The fish should not be far behind. The warm up this week should help speed things up.

The key to our success has been covering a lot of water until we find a school, then making multiple passes over the exact spot to pick off the active biters. The schools haven’t been big, so being a little off the mark results in no bites.

In addition to the coho we’ve been catching some nice lake trout. The average size on these lake trout has been really nice.
