Fished porcupine today. Put 22 kokes in the boat (had 2 kokanee rookies) used various dodgers and srg koko nitro spinners. Lost almost as many fish being the boat

What depth did you find the kokes in? I have been struggling to find fish there this year. I have never had this hard of a time before. Not sure if there is something I am doing wrong, or if my boat is going too fast (i dont think so. i'm at a bout 1.8-2.1 mph).

I really want to get my 2 and 4 year olds on some fish before the summer is over.....

Hi Rooster, hey I think your a little fast at 1.8-2.1 mph. We are usually at about 1.5- 1.7 mph in places like the Pig. JMHO.

Looks like I need to slow it down a little bit..... Might have to get a sea anchor rigged up. I'm going as slow as I can.

Thanks for the help!!

Thanks for the help!!Yes . . . you . . . do - need to slow down a bit. I always troll at about 1.5 for kokanee no matter which body of water I'm on.

I was able to make a quick run up with the boys and wife last night. Used a bucket as a sea anchor and it put me at 1.4-1.6 mph and it worked great. In just under 2 hours we managed to land 3, lose one at the boat and miss three. The boys had a great time. They LOVE fish!

Thanks for the help guys!

You might want to consider using 2 buckets - one on either side of the boat and up near the bow - which will give you even slower speeds and control, will not create an interference with your rigger/fishing lines, and will keep the boat on a straight troll line without having to correct with the motor.
