Fish derby results for team knotty thrillz
Well the Derby was pretty fun for our first time. Saturday was by far the best day. Started at anvil draw just past pipeline. Fishing was pretty good. Caught 12 kokes and 2 pups before the wind came up. Threw a few of the smaller kokes back and headed into a nice come to eat lunch and try some casting. After lunch we tried a little casting in horseshoe with no luck. The wind died down so went along the cliffs at Sheep Creek and trolled and caught 7 more kokes and 2 more pups.
Here's the gear that worked best for us. A black and gold spinner from Kokanee Creek tackle absolutely out performed any other offering. Used a black and white Kokanee Creek tackle spinner did well too. Ricky mountain tackle serpent viper spoon caught Kokanee and pups and a Kokanee Creek mini squid caught a few.
We caught most Kokanee in 20 - 40 feet of water and the pups slightly deeper in 50-60 feet. Was trolling at 1.5 to 1.8 mph and had the down riggers stacked at 10 ft apart. Had the planer boards with 2 and 3 oz weights. Most Kokanee were 16-19 inches and the Lakers went up to 22.
Sunday was a while different ballgame. We targeted pups so we trolled deeper and faster. Went 40-65 ft deep and 2-2.4 mph. Surprisingly still caught kokes. And they were hitting hard. Both hooks inside the mouth and a couple that were fairly deep down the mouth. Still up in anvil draw. The wind came up quick and hard so we called it a day sooner than we would have liked but still 4 nice ones.
Didn't win any money for size or any of the door prizes but had a great time watching my wife and sister setting lines, reeling in, and meeting all these fish. What a great couple of fisherwoman!!! Hope all that participated had as much fun as we did! Way to go team Knotty Thrills.
