Fished Lake Ki for Memorial Day. Wanted to put a few fish in the freezer, but also get on and off the lake quickly. Ki seemed like the right place. I am surprised at how many boats and kayaks there wound up being on the lake today.
Started my troll with an Elgin Fishing God's Tooth spoon in 50/50 brass on 1 line, and the other line running a Elgin Fishing 4 inch prototype dodger, then 16 inch leader to an Elgin Fishing God's Tooth Spoon in a frog patter. Immediately the 50/50 brass got bit at 25 feet, but the fish came off. A short time later, a good takedown on the 50/50 brass at 25 feet. Soon as I popped the line from the clip, I got that unmistakable feel of a decent fish "digging" instead of thrashing around. Fish wound up right at 17 inches, and chunk. Very healthy looking fish for Lake Ki.
After playing around with different patterns on the other line (frog, 50/50 blue, silver shiner, brown trout) I put on an orange top God's Tooth Spoon, and fairly quickly landed 2 more rainbows. The 50/50 line I decided to change out to a Reli Lures Diamond Flash spinner, tipped with a gulp worm, trailing a Elgin Fishing prototype 5.5 inch dodger. It immediately got 2 fish to finish out my 5 today, and get me off the lake in short order. I normally would stick around, not ever use bait, and go for 4-5 hours to see how many I could catch. With a looming honey-do list, and being grateful that my wife lets me fish as much as she does, a fast limit was a wise choice :)
Video shows the quick fish this morning, and a little of my set up. On one side I ran the God's Tooth a little differently from how I normally do it. The spoons are just so versatile.
