Silver Bay

2 posts in this topic

Just wondering if there is any fresh info on the area for fishing the big water from silver to the baptismor down.

Fished out of the Silver Bay landing the 22nd and 23rd. If you saw a 14' Deep V Alumacraft with a silver 20hp Honda battling the chop, that was me. Got four Lake Trout and six Pink Salmon and a few lost "mystery" fish, although I'm sure they were Pink Salmon. Used a downrigger and a Diamond King spoon with a stinger hook. All the salmon and two of the trout were nailed with the stinger. Short biters. Got the biggest trout 60' down over 357' of water. Marked smelt and got him. When I opened him up, it had 18 smelt in its stomach. The other trout were caught on the downrigger at 40' down over 57' of water and 25' down over 80' of water. The Pink Salmon were all 9-15" long but fought nicely. Caught them on the downrigger from 40' deep to 20' deep. Caught a couple casting over 20' deep water on the surface. Never fished out of there before. It was nice.
