does anyone have any good stories from the weekend? myself, I spent a day dragging bucktails on Shuswap lk. nothing except a big pike minnow my partner caught. sure has changed from last year on the Shuswap. with very few salmon fry the trout are gone. nothing like last year. now it is so friggin cold you would think it was winter. fresh snow on the hilltops! where did summer go?

what were you using? how deep?
we did not pick up much on the fish finder. not even lakers in some of the usual spots. I guess the fish were following you.(lol)

.we have similar methods. I use small bucktails/fry imitations. Saturday I left my flyrod at home and used the downrigger at 15 ft +/- 10 ft.i guess we were just in the wrong place. we went over sunnybrae way/engineers point. usually we fish the tunnels and down that way but went the other way for a change. bad decision (last year it was always good when we fished engineers pt.)
next time we'll have better luck I hope. thanks for the info.

i'll have to try some of your secrets. I do the same thing on small lakes but generally don't on the big ones.
do you live in fish arm area? i'm out in turltle valley............ever fish Phillips lk?

gearbox, is that you that took those mack squids etc off me? they were not a bad deal!
funny how things change. I had not used them in so long I got rid of them. I figured someone may as well use them. now i'm getting back into the big lakes again. anyway, thanks for the tips. I fished Okanagan lk about 200 days a year for about 7 years. I used to nail them preety good at whiteman's crk and 6 mile doing exactly what you describe.
i'm going to try my luck in the Okanagan derby june 15th so will have to remember all my old tricks by then.
