East side Report 11-18

Discussion in 'Steelhead Talk' started by archman, Nov 18, 2008.

  1. Got a call from Vkutsch late last night. We looked at the forecast and decided to give it a go. Our first stop didn't even produce a hit. I didn't like the looks of the water. It was lower than what I'm used to. We then went further east and got into them for about 2 hours. We ended up getting around 12 or 13 in that time frame. All the fish came on jig and maggots in the deeper parts of the hole. Didn't get a single hit on curred salmon eggs from Erie Outfitters. Fish seemed kind of sluggish, and most have been in the river for a bit. Here's a couple of pictures. Vkutsch has a few more on his camera.

    Joel, sorry I missed you man! I did meet your buddy Vkutsch a few holes down. We had a great day, double digits, lots of spunky cherry bucks. I popped this 8 pounder right at my feet:

  5. Hey Jim, wish I had more time. Victor said he ran into you. I had to get back to work. Looks like you guys didn't have a bad day either. I wish we could have stayed longer. Nice looking fish by the way.

    vkutsch You scratched my anchor!

    Good day to be out- the drive was a little dicey at 5 am, but turned out to be well worth it. The fish were all dark, real colorful. The takes were odd, like they were nibbling on the jig for a while, like a sunfish.
    Nice to meet you, Jim.
