KFGO Trip

2 posts in this topic

I was up to LOW for the first time on the KFGO trip to Ballard's. Fishing was great, the three of us in our house caught about 150 fish over two days. One 24", lots of 16" to 18" fish and tons of smaller ones. We used the genric gold jig and caught some of the light bites. We switched to jigging ice flies with full minnows and 2# line and picked up a lot more fish including the 24". Make sure you tap the bottom with the jig. On the dead stick we had jigs under bobbers with full minnows hooked thru the back about 4" off the bottom. That was the most fun I have ever had fishing.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
