The 2018 spring salmon fishery was probably the best I've had in a decade ,

To start out I hooked up with a fairly new member who had purchased a beautiful LUND package complete with top of the line cannon riggers , He "WAS" a newby to rigging and wanted to see if he would like it .. On invite my reply was , " name the time and I'll pick the place ..

We ran three trips on GB in various weather conditions , rain , wind and one great sunny day , my new partner is a trooper and wasn't fazed by conditions ..

Most fish were caught on small body baits and small spoons, over the three trips we landed in excess of 40 fish from 3-11 lbs, best trip we had 4 double headers , at times it was complete chaos..

We did bring home a good amount of these delicious fish and believe me nothing will go to waste ..

Included are some pix of our take home ..

I won't mention who I think is hooked now , Just ask "FRANK""

Nice to see the numbers returning, now if theyll just start scarfing those gobies down maybe we’ll see the 25 lbrs of the past

Im guessing it wont take much convincing , that is , if you let him reel a few in and not just drive the boat

Thanks for the report! Not sure weather the salmon numbers are really coming back or if the weather and lake conditions had every salmon in G-bay concentrated in 1 area... Either way fishing was good, and hopefully it stays that way all season but I doubt it.
