Big Schools of Fish Marked at 5 Down

Post By: ND Transplant      Posted: 11/23/2020 7:13:05 PM     Points: 713    
Marked a ton of fish today in schools suspended at 5 in water between 10 and 20 along the western side of the lake. Any idea what these all might be?

Duh. Obviously arctic bass preparing for ore spawn and heavy feeding frenzy. Since you're a transplant you probably are not familiar with arctic bass. You're lucky to have survived!

Hey! At lest I am not a California or NY transplant! LOL

I slept on it and think I'm going to dumb it down on Friday morning and go out with white and chartreuse jigs tipped with worms and anchor up when I find them again.

Try pulling a flasher with a crawler harness past the schools . . .if its trout,one will hit it.The cokes got eatten by the eyes,so CWP don't stock them any more.

My guess would be the hatchery truck has been by lately, and those are stockers. Flat line trolling some small sooons or spinners should tell you pretty quickly if Im right.

So Hawaiian do you fish with the chow as bait or just dump it in hopes of growing the stockers quicker?

Those are giant schools of smelt, there are millions in that lake.
