Default No cohos but browns 4/27

Been out in the kayak a couple of times this spring but coho fishing has been slow... so today my buddy Tom and I decided to mix things up a little bit and go after some browns. Winds were on the lighter side so paddled offshore a little bit.

Water temp was 45-46. We fished mostly 15-30 fow, with fish being taken on the shallow and deeper end. There were browns of all shapes and sizes. Cookie cutters to a few that pushed 10lbs or so. Hot bait for me today was a chartruese flicker shad.

We found a pod of fish and had a couple of double headers which was pretty fun on the yaks. Not a bad day on the water, fish were biting in the middle of the day. I ended up 6 for 9. Tom also caught his respectable share. Kept one to smoke. Lot of people at work have been asking me for some fish.







This one coughed up a couple of gobies in the yak.

It takes sack to fish a Big Lake in a SIK. Do browns offer much of a sleigh ride?

Nice job on the Browns. I heard a distress call while fishing yesterday. Some guy in a yak was having issues. I thought about you (not in a that way)An unpredicted wind kicked up out of the NE yesterday about 1-3 pm. I would not want to be too far from land when that happens. You guys are nuts

You guys are nuts ... but that's really cool! Way to get on some fish - Saturday was definitely the right day to take the yak out. Nice job, thanks for the report!
