Was a tough night for sure. I took a friend with me who is a boring trout fisherman. Can't cast worth a **** and complains alot - let's move, theres no fish, etc.
So I started my evening around 4:30 and I put him on a good Crank bite - but we cheated with the cranks - we were trolling Norman DLN's in 20" of water. We had 13 fish to 4 pounds by dark and I farmed a 8-9 at the boat near Hwy 150. Any time the wind is brutal I can allways stir up a good bite on the troll. After dark was a whole different story. I threw everthing at them with 2 missed fish on the worm and left around 11:30. Last month was better for sure.
