Hey Blue I went out on sunday and trolled for 2 hours and had one quick hit that dident stick (solid flame orange plug with rattle). I dident see a net go up in the 2 hours i was fishing. Oh ya I was on th outside of the slough from the mouth down to the satelite house 10-19ft of water. I did talk to another fisherman at the ramp at 12:30 and he only saw 1 fish taken. Let me know how you do on wed.

We were dragging Wiggle Warts in various colors from the mouth to the bridge in the slough. Lost our best plug on the bottom. :depressed:

Sunday 1 takedown, 1 native released. Monday 6 takedowns, 4 hooked, 2 in the box. Tuesday 2 takedowns, 1 and a jack in the box. For the number of boats in the area, saw very little action all three days, not at all like past years. At least the weather was good. A couple of friendly fishermen at the dock said they thought the water was too warm (so far) this year, which is hurting the bite. Any opinions on water temp and the coho action in the Lady Island area this year?

Was there from about 3pm today 'till 7:00pm. Did not see any caught. Didn't see any fish rolling until I got inside the slough. Then they were everywhere! Makes it easier to keep fishing when you know they're right beneath your nose, but frustrating when they don't like your offer:(

Waved to another Ifisher in a North River- who was that? I was in the little Smokercraft.

Hope somebody caught something.........

Three of us fished from 9:30 to 3:00 with only 1 hit. A 15 Lb buck. We fished all the way to the mill and the south side of Lady Island without seeing any other fish caught.I caught this one 1/4 mi down stream from the slough. I was using a mag wart - silver scale sides with orange bottom. I removed the front hook extended the rear hook with a swivel. I know most guys do the reverse, but this set up caught fish here last year.

Hiball, Just removing the front hook did yourself a great favor and headache...That's the one that usually get's stuck..tangled in the net..cuz those silver bullets like to thrash around...Way to go :cheers: I saw another two caught out there myself toward the main channel..don't forget to move around...I was not lucky today...I stunk today :blush:
