Strawberry Kokes
So, I am not a expert Koke guy and I know on this forum there are some experts that have this science mastered - that said, I did spend some time on the water at Strawberry, trying to develop my skills for this tasty smoker and had a little luck.

Fished out of the Strawberry Marina. Not hard to find the fish as the koke armada was bunched up and giving it hell just out side the marina. We just joined into the pattern. Fish were graphed at multiple depths from 15 to 35 ft. Had 4 rods working stages at 15 down to 35. Picked up half a limit for the group, all on orange and pink squids with orange a blueish Dodger. I am color blind, but they looked orange, blue and pink to me.

About mid morning the bite slowed and our hits actually started to focus on the 15ft rod, so we started bringing the others up to match. Still graphing a lot of signal down at 35, but the 15ft switch filled out the rest of the limit with action even into the wind picking up.

Of course, we also boated a lot of those trash fish. I was told to be a true koke guy I have to call them cuts that. But, I am not a true convert yet so I still smiled as I reeled them in.

No video or photos: i was to lazer focused on learning the trade, so the koke guys will stop snickering when I ask silly questions.

Oh and I think that is number 9 on my Utah Grand Slam list for the year. Long, long way to go on this goal.

Thanks to all the guys at the flotilla that got me excited to go catch some of these critters. Hope to see some of you up there.

Great report sounds like fun. Iím not a Koke guy either as Iíve never tried for them but Iím glad you were able to get after them. You sound like a very positive and fun person wished I could have met you at the flotilla but one day maybe. I have a handicapped son as well, heís not in a wheel chair but he is on the autism spectrum side and Iíve got severe arthritis and have had 24 surgeries to date so I understand disabilities greatly. You getting out is a great inspiration I hope you know that.

Autism is a tough one. One thing I have learned in this journey is spend 15 minutes at Primary Childrens Hospital and you realize you got it good compared to what others wrestle with. We will meet for sure a swap stories. Mostly true ones, even

Primaries is about a sad of a place as there is yet itís almost the most amazing place there is. My nephew was there for 4 months when he was born. Those kids can teach us things we only dreamed of when it comes to determination and over coming obstacles. They are true inspirations. My son is non communicative and shows 10% autism 5% downs, 5% cerebral palsy but run his dna and he doesnít has any of it. He is his own special child. And I look forward to the meet.
