Launched out of Ft Spokane with a buddy and headed up the Arm. Stopped at both the first and second islands; caught half a dozen or so dinks up to 13 inches, all released. Next we headed to the south end of Porcupine bay, Lapham's, where we joined 10 other boats. It was a mix of people trolling, casting jigs and like us dragging jigs. We picked up three nice eaters up on the rocky hump. The fish are very scattered based on what we did and what we saw the other boats doing. Best depth was 38 FOW. We also tried jigging deeper water on the north end of Lapham's; this resulted in about ten dinks. We could have kept catching and releasing dinks but decided to try and find some bigger fish. We headed back down the Arm and stopped at McCoy's; never had a bite. Back down to the first island and caught a few more dinks. Headed out to Casino flats and picked up a couple more keepers in 50 FOW and then finished the day at Outhouse flats where we also picked up a couple more eaters in 40 FOW.
All fish were caught on jigs with a black head and a 4" pumpkin/chartreuse tail worm being most productive. Final tally was ten 16-21 inch eaters kept and 20 dinks thrown back.
