Fishing Report Sunday March 11th

My first boat outing of 2012 was a complete bust. I took Ken and Brian out on The Boat to do some cold water jigging for lake trout. While a had a hell of a time fishing and talking to Ken and Brian, the catching was quite poor.

We fished from 9am to 3pm. Jigging Binsky‘s in the new 3/4 ounce size, crippled herring, kastmaster and a few other lures in water from 30 feet to 90 feet deep.

Never got a bite even though I was marking fish on the bottom pretty regularly in 65 feet of water. The wind was blowing about 10 to 15mph out of the southwest and I could not stay on top of the fish. The water temp was 41.8 from surface to 80feet when we checked with a Fish Hawk.

We then flat line trolled little chrome Hildebrandt spoons and also caught nothing but a sunburn on my nose! Oh well.
