I am getting everything ready for fishing on Lake Coeur d’ Alene in Idaho. A bunch of us family members have rented a house with a dock. So, I have to get the boat all cleaned up from the ash and smoke that has dirtied it up a bit. Also, I have to get all my fishing gear in order. Last year we had a blast catching kokanee on the lake and it sounds like the fish are even bigger this year. All I need to get them is my Kokabow blades, spinners and squidders. This sure did the trick last time. I will pack two downrigger kokanee rods and two rods rigs with sliders for lead ball fishing off the back of the boat. I have a note to myself to be sure and make up some white shoe peg corn, scented with Graybills Guide Formula kokanee flavor. The fish loved it last year. I am going to call the folks at the Fin and Feathers tackle shop and see if there is a good place to start looking for kokanee. Last year I just found some boats trolling and that’s where the fish were, and that did the trick.
I am holding a Lake Coeur d’ Alene kokanee from last year’s trip. I hear they are even bigger this year.
