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.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
