The Frosty Bear or was that Snowy
Well had a chance to go today so I did... Weather said wind till 8:30 ish so I didn't push any speed limits today on the way over the pass... Good thing it was snow covered from wind blown snow... -1 F as we rounded the corner into the sinks.... Warmed to a balmy 5 F at the marina at launch time... but the sun was up and felt good... Wind was still bumpy so we trolled for a while and ended up with a Cut and a Mac, then a long dry spell so we tried jigging and I can't dance worth crap, so was getting ready to go and I ran across what looked like a ton of fish, so I kept jigging on a drift rather than anchor and as I was pulling my jig to the boat a nice big cut came right out of the water trying to get my jig, but I was too quick for him and kept it away from it... Jigged for another hour drifting back and forth there and had multiple bumps but no connections... Then I finally got lucky and nailed one more native cut... Called it a day about 2:30... Temps warmed to 35 F as the local scout group dropped by the ramp for a nice swim.... Crazy buggers.... We called it a day... Later J

Heading up Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving. Hoping some of the community is willing to play. Today will be a tuneup for the ego at E Canyon. Wink

Make sure you take Whitefish gear. Not sure but I think that was what was banking up just off their spawning grounds. I tried a little but no nibbles but I think they are staging for the big show. Have fun. Later J

Great report Jeff, and those sure are some pretty fish!

Get ready my friend because the whitefish are about a week away from the spawn. I heard rumor today that a few have actually been caught and if that is true then just like the lakers this year, they are spawning a week early. I'm going to try it tomorrow to find out for myself. If they are biting I will let you know.

Thanks Mike, they weren't very big by Bear Lake standards, but they were a lot better than I've been finding in Hyrum that's for sure... I'm so excited for the whitefish run, they are so fun and frustrating to me at the same time... I have the hardest time keeping my offering in the zone... Seems like those days when the fish are on and if I can get it in the right spot it turns into a lot of fun when those big ole girls grab it on my light weight poles I use to finesse them... Got a sucker the first trip after them last year and it was a hog and I nearly thought it would take my whole rig, man it was fun even if it was a sucker... it towed me around pretty well in the toon.... really thought I had a trophy fish until I seen it...
Well, good luck today, wish I could be over there to join the fun, but not sure when I'll get the next chance.. May have to take a day off work to come over since the weekends are getting busy around home... Appreciate any info you're willing to share... Thanks again.. J
