Went to Clear Lake again for this week’s fishing adventure. After my success last week I was feeling very confident. It was a confidence that was misplaced. Kokanee are sometimes a big challenge to catch. The challenge is often not getting them to hit the lure but in landing them. They are incredibly athletic fighters (for their size) and they have very soft mouths. Combining the two means that you can have a day like I did. I went 1-9 on hooked up fish. The rest all came off before I could get them in the boat! I will be changing out my hooks to a different style before I go back. I did manage one kokanee and a nice 15 inch trout.
Because the Wavewalk is so easy to troll with, I was able to stay out all day and not get tired.
I still need to get some grip tape for my paddle so I am not fighting it all the time, but it is on the list!
