Hello all,

I grew up fishing in Northern Idaho, now I live near Tacoma in Washington state. I have recently began lake fishing with my Colorado pontoon boat and trolling motor. I have been targeting kokanee all summer with very little luck but I am determined. I generally prefer to fish closer to home than travel to some of the larger lakes in central WA. However, I may take a trip this summer for a week and try to get into some bigger fish. I don't use a downrigger, only a line counter, 3oz lead ball, dodger, and hootchie. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Tight lines!
