Kokanee Trolling
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zf9fMFn6PDE

Wood Lake British Columbia was the first lake that I ever fished for and caught a kokanee. These smaller sized land locked sockeye are a great fish to catch during the summer and make a tasty meal. When we started fishing for them we would use weights on our lake trolls to get the lure to depth. No I have downriggers on the boat which makes controlled depth angling for these kokanee a whole lot easier. While with weighted line you're just guessing where you're lure is based on how much line you let out, with a downrigger you know exactly where your lure is. Match up this with the depth of the kokanee schools and you are usually hooking up with fish in no time at all. I hope you enjoy the video. Let me know what else you would be interested in seeing or information you are interested. Maybe I can help out with more how to videos in the future.
