Wednesday, June 7, 2017
By Dave Graybill
I had the batteries charged. I had the life jackets and other safety equipment on board. It was time to put the new Smokercraft in the water and see if everything worked. My wife Eileen suggested that we take it up to Lake Chelan. We could try everything out and even put a couple of lines in the water and try for kokanee. Off we went on Monday, arriving at the Mill Bay Boat Launch at just after noon. I had spotted some boats fishing below Rocky Point and headed that direction. I put out two rods with 3-ounce cannon ball weights ahead of Kokabow blades and squid spinners. We caught a couple of fish but the action just wasn’t that great. I pulled the gear and we ran over to an area near Lakeside Park. Now we were into fish. I missed a bunch of hits while I was fiddling with fish finders and the new remote for the bow mount. We lost a couple of fish right at the net, of course, and by 3:00 we had landed 10 kokanee and a cutthroat. The day was overcast and the Kokabow Blueback Feather and Talon (orange) squid spinner worked best. Everything on the boat worked great and I am looking forward a lot more fishing trips with this great boat.
