Drifting for Coho Salmon with a Bonus Big Lake Trout

Hello folks! We have a windy day on us, too windy to get out onto the lake. So we’ve moved into the Lower Niagara River, right at the mouth of Lake Ontario for this cloudy, overcast day. Our goal: trout and coho salmon.

We are running with a T-Turn set up down to a Cattail Sinker to help keep us tangle free, and snag free. We’ve opened up with an artificial minnow, as the seagulls in the areas were driving for bait fish.

The key to bottom bouncing, is to keep contact with the bottom. When you feel your line start to lift, either switch to a heavier sinker, or let out additional line. The Cattail Sinker helps keep the sinker was getting snagged as it hugs the river bottom.

Even though we missed the morning bite, due to the overcast day the trout and salmon bite was on all afternoon. As you can imagine, we had a fantastic day on the water. Even if I did manage to break our fishing net on the thick lake trout.

Until next time, good luck and good fishin’!
