So I got a chance to sit back and have someone else be the captain for a change. Brianb1962 took me out on his boat for a half day trip that ended up being a most the dayer trip. Awesome time out on the water. weather was mostly nice, it rained a bit, it shined a bit, it was calm a bit, it was windy a bit, and even a bit of thunder. water was like 47* at the dam and 43* at the upper end. Lake just keeps filling up. Noticed a new dock at the first boat ramp at the dam. WE SLAYED THEM TODAY. All the fish came on fenders and worms or thomas bouyants. Had a few shakers and lost another big one at the boat. Brian ended up with 4 on his stringer and I had 5. Not a bad day at all. Kiska enjoyed it as well. All I can say is there are hundreds of large fish kegged up at the dam. Seen one other boat from Idaho on the water. Thanks Brian for taking me out.
