Hit lake O today with my son and father for some late season down rigging.
I have been trying to learn more about down rigging and this year has been good to me. I decided to go with the late season trip even though I donít have a clue what the fish do this time of year.
We started in 110 FOW with nothing to show for it. We went deep to 280-320 FOW. We were running slow 2.2-2.5 MPH with not a sniff. We changed lures a dozen times and boards over and over. I pushed the speed up to 3 mph and we picked up a nice Coho. The whole day was about getting my son his first down rigging fish so he was on the rod all day. He ended up landing 3 Coho and lost two big fish I suspect were Lakers by the way they fought. On the way back in my son badly wanted a bigger fish so we stopped in 100 FOW and trolled at 3.2 MPH. I finally called it and cleared one rod and put it all away. I went to grab the second rod and wham it went off. My son got his wish and he fought the fish like a champ. He landed a nice Laker about 8lbs that was released for another day.
Even though I tried really hard to catch a fish on body baits all the fish came on spoons.

Ya Werner for real😂😂😂.
I tried slow for a long time. You just never know I guess. The Laker hits were when I was going the fastest. Weird.

Water temp at the surface was 51.5 in 300 FOW
It was 49 in 100 FOW.

you broke all the known rules for laker fishing hahahha. And what is that thing
doing out there anyway, most are all in and spewing eggs

Where I was the water temp was 51 and change but in the afternoon it was well past 55

We've had this discussion before, fish do not always play by our rulebook

Oh I agree.

Good news I have a very very small play book so as soon as I run through my two to three plays I am into experiments again.
