View Full Version : Blue Mesa weekend

We found something pretty interesting at Blue mesa over the weekend. While setting up to troll my brother noticed a large group of fish on the surface. I told him it was probably a bunch of rainbow. So just for fun I tied on a castmaster and chucked it in front of them. Bam got hit instantly and when it got close to the boat I realized it was a koke. Thinking it was a fluke I found another pod of fish and did it again then again and agian. So much for the fluke it went on untill about 11 oclock, then shut down. It was a lot like chasing striper at powell only with salmon! Has anybody ever done this? What a kick in the butt. Most of the fish are the 14-16 inch range with a couple 16-18 and one that was 19. Not huge but fun and it beats trolling IMO.

Right out in the middle of cebolla. We also saw some on the north side of the island (the name escapes me) down by middle bridge.
