Hello again folks, Captain Mike here. With Memorial Day behind us, and a rising lake beckoning, we are days away from putting all the boats into their summer moorage. Our summer staff is now selected and there will be a total of five guides dedicated to you, the Mo Fisch customer, for the 2017 season. In the coming weeks, I will be doing a bio or highlight on each of them.
Fishing in May saw some great days, and some not so great days, but with cold, muddy, rising then falling waters, that might be expected! The last couple of days have seen many fish 28″ and over with a couple pushing the twenty pound mark! No real giants yet, but as we get busier, and have more boats out daily, the odds will go up. Maybe the next one will be YOU!
We are now running our “Fathers Day Special”, so Dad fishes free with any paid charter so why not make this the year you give Dad that gift he won’t ever forget? Remember, we can take up to six anglers on our boats, so the whole family can join in. Have an even larger group? We have the “Fun Time” available which can take up to FIFTEEN passengers! Call and ask.
Anglers now need to cover some water until you find the feeding fish. If you fish an area with lot’s of fish on the sonar, try a variety of lures, but don’t spend too much time on fish that won’t bite. Once you find the feeding fish, stay on them.
We are finding success with Wordens Flatfish drug in the mud in the 120-140 foot depths, as well as a shallow (15-25′ down) bite on the Delta when the water clears enough for those fish to see the target.
We have several Perch and Kokanee charters booked over the next several days, I will let you know how they go!
Tight lines and No Bad Days!
Captain Mike Howe
