    Caught some small kokanee last week out in the middle near Ok Lk. resort. Only fished 30 minutes as it was more of a shake down cruise for summer salmon fishing.

    Anyone have a source for galvanized trailer fenders in Kelowna. Princess auto are raw steel.

    Anyone getting back out there now the Albertians and their wakeboats have gone home? Where's good at moment? Thinking to head Squally Pt/Rattlesnake Is tomorrow but new info might influence me elsewhere.

    Spent a couple of uncomfortable hours off Rattlesnake/Squally yesterday until the breeze freshened a bit too fresh for us. Small rainbows were taking a red/purple Lyman cutaway plug at 60 ft fairly consistently around Rattlesnake, we kept largest only, about 2-3 lb. That's about it for me for this season. I'm having full canvas made this winter so maybe I can stay out further into fall next year. October sure was good though.

    Around Rattlesnake produced every time I went out in Oct, I think was 3 out of 4 weekends. What a golden month it was, mild and dry. One day mid month they were taking just about anything, plugs, spoons, leeches, worms. Couldn't crack the code for something big though, 3-4 lb was about it.

    Time for an update. I finally got out onto the lake yesterday. 10 minutes in on a 4" #98 lyman down at 27 ft on the rigger. Hit so hard it popped the rigger! I've been waiting for that for awhile. Caught right out front of the old ferry docks in gelletly bay in 80ft of water. Temp was 40.2 when we got out and 41.2 after a few hours of cruising around.

    Hey good one Fisher Dude. I always get myself tied up in knots this time of year with work, skiing and home renos all conspiring against me getting out there. New sport top is complete though, one day needed to replace my outboard's internal fuel hoses and I'm good to go. I just have to finish off this fkn bathroom first...

    I think I might go out and play in the rain today. Who knows, maybe it'll be the ticket!

    Hey Travo, were you out on good Friday? Saw a nice thunderjet out there with a big OB on the back.

    I went out on Friday for a few hours with nothing to the boat. Put the new underwater camera to use and got to see some neat action. Had a few drivebyes and a cod even came by to check out a spoon. I'll put together some footage when I think I have enough.

    I went out Friday too, Naramata to Indian Rock and back. No hits on surface trolled bucktails and spoons. Maybe next time I'll remember to bring my downriggers, lol. Did a bunch of little adjustments to cables, carb sync, idle speed etc that were much needed so it was a worthwhile outing anyway.
