With everything that's going on in my life this month I needed a mental health day, and what better way is there to get your head clear than to go fishing? I called my buddy Mark and off we went to Lake Roosevelt.
We launched out of Fort Spokane about 8:30 and headed up the arm. A little bit past the Porcupine launch we started jigging 5/8 oz red heads with purple crawdads in some deep holes, 80-90 fow. We had to hunt around for a while but then my buddy Mark got a bite and boated the first burbot. The bite picked up pretty quickly after that, and in no time we both had a limit. What a great day, the temps were mild, the wind was nonexistent, and the water surface was glass.
After two years of not getting to fish for burbot this was a trip to remember. I can't wait to go back.
