    Default Strawberry 5-27-2020

    Made the loner trip with my dog. We are both in training for compatibility in the boat. This trip was his 2nd being the 1st this year. He has been doing well finding his own spots on the boat and whenever a fish is caught and brought into the boat he displays an excitement.
    I fished the Strawberry side out on the main body keeping away from the rodeo that occurs with kokanee fishing. Surface water temp was 50 when I started and hit 52 at the end of my day. I marked a lot fish within the top 10-20' of the water column. My first fish was a scrawny little cutt, after a while I finally dialed in on the kokes with a few other scrawny tweener cutts. The cutts weren't looking good at all compared to the past. However, the kokes seemed very feisty in the 16-18" range I was catching with one weighing in more than 2lbs. When hooked they would do the usually acrobatic top water tail dance but rod bending seemed more intense with line stripping from the reel than what it has been before. This got the oil press up to operational excitement levels. Lost a few at the back of the boat and a couple at the net. My dog would get up with excitement when I would pick up the rod with a fish on. Got off the water about noonish with my limit.

    What kind of dog, Roger? While mine go out duck hunting boat, always been leary of taking my Labs on fishing boat for fear that they'd end up with a mouthful of hooks ;-).

    Glad you had a successful day.

    He's just a little guy a Yorkie. Since I don't hunt anymore he's the right size for companionship and he is a very loyal fella. He get his curiosity up when the net reveals a fish. I do have to watch the hooks in the fish as the stinger might reveal a double hookup.
