Went up to Lake O to fish for kings for the first time with OGF member Reel Power on Thursday morning. We were greeted by a strong west wind and a lake of whitecaps. We figure we would take our time getting ready and hope the lake would die down. We go to launch the boat to bring it to our rented slip at the marina. Start the motor and it over heats. Long story short, and a couple of trips to the Boat Doctor in Olcott (highly recommend), we figured out the problem, got the boat to the slip and started getting things ready. 7.5 hours after arriving, we decided that the lake was fishable and we headed out. We had heard that the inshore bite had been pretty hot lately so we set up in 75 fow. We were marking fish all over the place and had good feelings about the fishing. Ended up fishing the 75-100 fow range for 2.5 hours and could not buy a bite. Saturday morning we were on the water by 6:00 and went out to 350 fow. Fished for a little bit with no luck. We ended up discovering that the thermocline was much deeper than where we were fishing. We made adjustments (fished between 70-120 fow) and started picking fish. We ended up catching 9 kings (we kept 5, we were searching for another big fish to give us our 6th fish, she just never came, just her smaller brothers and sisters), 5 steelhead, and a nice 8-10 lb rainbow (we felt that it was a domestic rainbow and not a steelie. Pic is below, lemme know what you think). We lost another 10-15 fish, visually confirmed a few of them (kings and steelies). Most of the kings came on spoons off the downriggers. The steelies seemed to like flies with spin doctors off of dipsys. Caught a few fish on the copper lines as well. We ran some sushi and pulled a couple fish that way too. The catch of the day (and biggest fish of my life) was this 29 pound, 39 inch long, 23.75 inch girth female king salmon. Fish hit a green spoon on the downrigger around 100 feet down. I have never landed a fish and had adrenaline pumping like I did when that fish hit the floor of the boat. Needless to say the fish is going on the wall, obviously a replica since bringing it home in one piece was out of the question. I owe many many thanks to Jarrett who invited me to come out with him for my first opportunity at kingers. I had a blast and can't wait to do it again.
