Deer Creek 4/17
Kind of slow day at DC...Kayaked around the north end of the lake and around the island from 8:00-11:00am. We caught 3 rainbows trolling rapalas and spinners. Tried a curly tail grub for a bit too but no takers. Nice day out though!

I was there yesterday

I also tried the curly tail grub it did not work

try this Pro-Troll Trout Killer are Kokanee Killers 2"
water mellon or a brads cut plug 3". you need to rig the brads plug right are it will not work to good. I made a video on youtube showing how. you need to run them with a swivel and about 28" leader can also use a 4" dodger you need to get down 10 to 25 feet 17 feet was best for me yesterday

years ago I fished with a guy at strawberry using them I got 3 fish to his one plus a 6 lb rainbow

he went out and bought some and never could catch fish with them why, I don't know they have been working for me the last 3 years

I got my butt handed to me on the 18th! I fished all over the north end and didn't touch a fish.

I wonder if I wasn't fishing deep enough if you were catching them in 17 feet of water and it was 24 feet deep. I didn't get close to that depth.

Do you usually catch rainbows that deep this early in the year?

My dad and I fished on Sat the 20th and caught 3. Had 6 hook ups. Started down by Wallsburg bay and trolled around to Rainbow. Nothing. Then scooted over to the other side and trolled up to Charleston Bay. Finally found some fish along the bluffs up there and landed one. Then the 1:00 blow started and fishing got better. Hooked into 5 more and landed 2 of them (all in the Charleston Bay area). All planters, but nice fish. One was about 14 inches and fat.

Other fishermen did about the same. Better or worse.

All fish tasted very good. :)

have got a lot of big Rainbows this year using downriggers down between 17 and 25 feet in 40 to 50 feet of water the small ones I got were close to the top

you see them on the fishfinder down 30 feet
