I think some of the kokanee I have caught like black, gray or light gray 'cause they attacked it and got hooked.
Look for Wannafish A Lure on FaceBook
He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

I started getting Gary's stuff over a year ago and have been using his info and technique suggestions since. its helped me catch Kokanee regularly on my favorite lake instead of only occasionally. He is a great guy in person ( met him at the Puyallup show) and very open to questions and suggestions. I made some observations in my fish catching last summer that he used in modifying some of his gear. I'm almost sorry you guys who are already better Kokanee fisherman than me are paying attention to his stuff. thought maybe it would give me an edge at lake Chelan in May at the get together. that'll teach me to be petty.

Gary will be at the event. I get to fish with him Saturday. [biggrin]

He'll be at the potluck so people can grill him then.

NP, I only recently gave much thought to just how many knowledgeable kokanee guides and anglers will be at this event. It really will be a unique opportunity for guys that are just learning the ropes to be able to network with some real pros in the fishing community. And rseas is a great cook. [drool]
