:-D
Caught my first fish of the year! Coho about 22 inches. Did not weigh it but standard size. Caught it after 20 minutes on power line with a crawler about 3 feet down, about 50 feet from shore, should have left then, nothing else the rest of the day. Arrived 9:30 am left 2:00 pm. My buddy and his dad got skunked and they arrived much earlier. We saw 6 Coho taken and we think an Atlantic Salmon. Definitely a salmon and looked like a brown but fewer spots. Water was murky lakeside and the weather rough. Weather and lake conditions seemed ideal for a good day powerlining based on past experience but I think the water is still to cold for them to be active.

Thanks for the report...seems all the fish at Montrose have been caught on a powerline lately...I'll probably be out there next weekend.
