    Default 6-25/26 Islands, boat rides and no limits

    Thursday boat ride, Neighbor Bob and I Made the 7AM drawbridge in PC on Thursday (and Friday), tried South of F Can (range)23' water was stained, nice marks but nothing but shorts so pulled lines and moved to South of Middle Island and trolled North to the line, Then East for 2-3 miles (Sounds like I should have kept going East from the other reports). Lost 1 nice eye near the boat and landed 2. Moved back to the Ballast Isle area, nothing here, so went further West to 1.5 Mile WSW of Rattlesnake, picked up 4 really quick, about then the wind quit as did the bite. Just seemed could not get a consistent depth speed going on the rest of the trip, tried high, low, fast, slow with all sorts of different colors and harness's. Trolled from here up to West reef and back, lotsa mayflys popping out and showing on the screen from 12' up. All eyes on #1 Dipseys, best? settings/feet back were .5/45', 2/62', 3.5/75-80'. For the day, caught 9 on spoons, 2 on meat, tried for an hour for the last fish, that never came. Speed 2.3 -2.4 both days. Largest eye was 23", Released 20 shorts today. Bob (86 years old) had an epic fight with what turned out to be a 17# catfish, took about 15 minutes to land. He said that that was the best fish fight he had in the last 20 years when he had a 20# steelhead on, fishing Lake Ontario, so that made it a memorable day!

    Friday, 3 on board, Headed back to Rattlesnake, water stained again, trolled North, Had 2 in the box, and had lost 1, Moved up to the Kidney, caught some shorts here. Picked up and went West, 4 mile South of Middle Sister, Water was really clean here. trolled NE with the wind, found a little pocket of fish and worked it. Before we could limit, Storm was rolling in from the West, Radar did not look pretty so picked up and made the 20 mile run back to PC. Had a light Sprinkle going on back at PC that quit at the dock. Nice grade of fish out here, largest was a 28" 7#, with a couple of 5#ers. No shorts here either!! Caught 13 on spoons, 3 on meat. Best settings were .5/50' ,2/64' 3.5/85-95'. Night rider was the highly preferred spoon.

    Nice report, where were you fishing around Rattlesnake? We've had pretty good success on the south side of the island.

    Fished about 1.5 Miles WSW of the Rattles then North to West Reef, and points in between. Did not try South of the island. Thursday, most boats were North towards West Reef, Friday there were more boats South towards Green Island
