Cindy and I Made a run over to Seaton's Grove This Am to fish the upper pens area. We met hewesfisher, his lovely wife, and their fishing partner Amber in Grand Coulee, and went on down to the launch. Cindy and I ran down to the middle pens to start our day. there was little to no current running, and the bottom pens had been harvested. this changed the environment where we usually fish, so we drifted/motored around below the pens and worked the area with jigs (have I mentioned we like to jig). We tried B-2 Squids, The new (to me) Uncle Walt's mini tube jig (that was hot at the lower pens yesterday), and our usual variety of plastic jigs in 1/16 & 1/8oz. The B-2 Caught fish, and the dark plastic grub caught fish, but not alot of hits, and those were very light. I even broke out my New Fly rod out fit, and threw some wooly buggers and an assortment of other flies to no avail. We ended up finishing our four fish/two person limit around mid afternoon. We passed by the hewesfisher at one point and there were smiles and slime, so look forward to a report from him. The fish today were fiesty, and put up a better battle than most, so an exciting day. Our largest today was 11# 15oz, and the smallest weighed in at 10# and a few oz. A slow bite, but the ones that did bite ended up making it a great day for us.
Hewesfisher, It was great to meet you and yours, and you guys have a great looking boat. Best of luck on your future trips. Tight lines and sharp hooks everyone
