I had completely exhausted my supply of smoked fish in my freezer. That’s a sad state of affairs. To correct this, I invited my brother in law Tom Verschuren to take a trip to Rufus Woods. There is no better product to come out of a smoker than smoked triploid. We drove up in time to fish for a few hours on Wednesday afternoon at the middle net pens. When we arrived, we saw a bank angler land a fish. That was a good sign. Even better was him getting a fish on his first cast. The trout hit his Power Bait on the way down. However, the apparent good bite failed us. One issue was the very heavy current. We had to add weight to get our baits to stick to the bottom and sometimes our bait was even washed off. We made the run up to the upper net pen and Tom got another fish. We had discovered that the Berkley Power Bait Nuggets, which look suspiciously like the pellets they feed the fish in net pens was what the trout preferred. At the last minute I finally landed a fish before we called it day.
