Put the same set up down but still not marking any fish. Went about a 200 yards and the board rod got bit, 1st koke of the day. Came on a green and clear squid with a silver and green sling blade. Went back through the same area and another koke on the board. Started switching things up on the downrigger/color, depth, line out. To make a long story short I never got bit on the down rigger. Everything came on the board. I caught 4 Kokes and 4 bows. All were within 20' of shore running probably at a depth of 8-10' deep. Best speed was slow .08-1.0 mph. Any faster and nothing... That is what was causing me problem, the wind was so bad I hard a hard time maintain speed. I finally got sick of fighting the wind and set out to find the trout.
Hit venous places in the canyon and was rewarded with 15 or so 3-6 lb. bows. My personal best day for size at the Gorge. Everything I caught was over 19' with the biggest at around 24'. Tube jigs and jerk baits were the ticket. Attached pics don't do the fish justice.... Great day at the Gorge!!!
