Strawberry 11/9
Hit the Berry again on Saturday 11/9. Spectacular weather, no wind! Launched about 8:00am, the ramp was a little bit icy when we launched but it was too warm to last. Lot's of other anglers on the water, in fact the parking lot at the marina was nearly full between the docks being stored there and the trucks/trailers.

We fished several locations, including Haws point and the narrows. Best results came with the classic white tube jig tipped with a worm, both trolling and jigging. Did some exploring in Solider Creek arm and found a nice inlet with fish.

Caught the biggest fish of the day (cuttthroat near the top of the slot) while jigging with the pole in one hand and talking on the phone with the other hand. Not a technique I could reproduce, though. Wink

With the good weather this week I hope to get out on the boat one more time before winterizing, but may hit Deer Creek or Jordanelle.

Thanks for the report, sounds like a fun day there at the Berry. How fast are you trolling when you use the tube jigs?

My main boat battery was dead on the ramp so I had to pull one of my trolling batteries to start and run the boat. As as result, I didn't have my other fish finder on that tracks speed since I was down a battery. Since my electric trolling motor was really running on 1 battery we were going slow. I am guessing 1.5mph or less.

Well that's too bad but at least you were able to get out and fish. I had that happen to me once years ago, so I went out and bought a set of jumper cables and just jumped my main battery with the electric trolling motor battery, after running the main motor for a while, it charged the main battery. Since then, I always leave those jumper cables in the boat.

Good suggestion, I should add a set of jumper cables to the boat kit in case something like that happens again.
