Went out this morning early for about 3 hours. Marked quite a few more than last time and had lots of action. Ended up bringing in 5 I think and missed a few, 2 rainbows and 3 salmon. Most around the 8lb mark. A lot of action 60 feet down on the rigger with a black and purple spoon then a couple about 25 feet down on a bloody nose moonshine. Most hits in 100-150 fow. Fleas weren't that bad this time compared to last week either. Anyone else out of oakville today?

East of you there is good action as well.
How do you take care of fleas?
Do you use mono line or thin braid?
Or do you clean the line every hour?
Any other option?

Been out for 4 days in a row with doubles over the weekend....super tired and fleas were nasty in certain areas.

Even clogging on flea flicker line, 40 pound mono and cables on riggers, if you find colder water it is a tad better, but fishing was hot every day except for Sat. afternoon as we had to quit at 7 pm....ouch, just when things were starting to fire

easy double digits on each outing with decent salmon up to 22 pounds. 16 was average and some of those 8-10s as well.

steelhead are on as well



flies were hot.....hint (green) rest was all spoon bite. fat nancy and nbk and candy corn




I would not put out any braid

Man I've had flies out every time we've been out, I wind up taking them off and putting spoons on cause they've produced nothing on our boat so far.. past years they've been great though. I've had other guys tell me how flies are on fire for them, out of oakville too.. guess it's just weird luck they're only hitting our spoons. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining haha. Sad thing is some of my spoons are on their way out, my favourite to be exact.. black nk with a white glow ladder. They've pretty much destroyed it. Guess I'll have to find a new fav! Actually here's a question for ya Shank, I always seem to hit fish about 20-25 feet down right under the motor, some of our biggest actually, think they're coming up to see what all the racket is?? We screwed up the net job last year on an easy 30 pound brute doing this (would have been my pb, I almost cried). I'll tell ya, I'll be running a spoon there from now on after what I've seen the last couple of years. Also Berger, I've been trying to figure out a way with the fleas, so far I've just been picking them off, but apparently there's a tool out there you can get, I even got advice to smack the water with my rod. I was gonna try it last time but the fleas weren't too bad in oakville.

Well, coho are motor shy, that's for sure as we get them on cheaters 8 feet down and 10 feet behind the boat and as Thoraguy knows I run a short /shallow dipsey when I can which produces not a lot of fish but a mature on pretty much every outing

I'd be more than interested in this flea tool......spiny water fleas are easy to remove, but that fish hook flea is a b####

when dried out you can use s small brush to remove, not so when wet
