A Blue Kinda Day

Post By: johnski      Posted: 1/24/2019 3:30:43 PM     Points: 4171    
So it was COLD but fun to fish Blue once again. Long drive from Monte Vista but always an adventure. Fished second bridge and drilled about 6 inches of ice there. Fished 47 FOW and had MANY fussy fish swim by but very few taker lakers. Tried plastics with sucker and mealworms. Caught a nice Kokanee which surprised me...first ever through the ice.
Minus 17 to start the day, but a great day none the less.

You weren't alone dealing with fussy fish today... Really had to work for the fish we caught but got on some really nice ones. Glad to see someone else out enjoying the freezer

Minus 17, it has almost warmed up, lol. Hope to hit it next week. Maybe they wont be as finicky. Cool on the koke.

Every day is a Blue kinda day in my opinion! Shame that work gets in the way...
Been a lot of picky fish up there lately from my experience. Cool on the Koke though - on plastics with sucker meat???

It was a small plastic with mealworm for the Koke. I had a lot of fish swim by at 25 feet and NO INTERST at all, which I think were kokes. Then a few masses of baitfish showed on the Lowrance too. Deeper fish crawling along bottom I assumed most likely Lakers and they were very picky. May go back next week and try again...
