Browns Are Biting

Mother Nature gave us a great fishing weekend on May 1st and 2nd. Silver Addiction and Captain Craig fished this weekend and had GREAT ACTION! The Brown Trout were biting and Silver Addiction boated 32 Browns out of 40, along with a couple of nice Lake Trout. Captain Craig took Silver Addiction to the South Side of the Project. He fished in 6 to 8 foot of water down to the Bass Lake inlet. The water was nice and stained and of course, as flat as could be.  A wide spread of 6 boards on a side was key.

An important note:  Make sure to watch for the sand bars!! A large boat will churn mud on the sand bars if one is not careful.

Captain Craig has already scouted this area in the 14ft Guppy Getter.  However, if you can navigate them you will be well rewarded. So if you want a great big lake experience give us a call, we have dates available for this AWESOME FISHERY! Also check out our Facebook for pictures and more details!

The specifics are as follows:

Speed: 2.2 to 2.3 SOG South Troll was Best

Leads:  75 to 125 feet behind the board
