You've heard from the pro so here's one from a Koke newbie.

I'd never caught a Kokanee though I had tried a few times. My buddy, his daughter and I decided to to try out his new sonar at Odell on Saturday.

We really didn't know what we were doing but we figured it out. We started jigging over schools and picked up a couple. We decided to troll and got a few more. Then we stopped on top of a huge school and got 5 in about 15 minutes. He jigged and I cast and jigged on the retrieve. At one point I hooked six in a row. Of course I only landed three.

The size seemed to be really nice though I don't have anything to compare them to. They made some delish grilled Kokanee sandwiches tonight.

Here's a pic of my share. The board is a 1x12.

Those are mighty tasty. 12" is just fine. I wish it was closer for me but kind of a long day trip.

Well done Mr. Ace. Twelve inchers are about, an average size. Although I believe that Odell, does have even larger ones. The big Mac's love their sandwiches too!

We did see a guy pick up a Mack on a jig. It wasn't huge but I'm sure it was looking for a koke sandwich.

I've only been there once and couldn't catch a kokanee to save myself but did catch and undersized Mac, about 5 lbs, on a tiny jig and light tackle.

what I saw was about 3 pounds. We did mark some big ones on sonar though.
