fished shaver on saturday with dad.... 8:00 to about 3:00 for about thirty fish in the boat and many lost at the boat.... bag consisted of mostly healthy kokes and a few scattered bows.... hot setup was slinblade dodger with red prism tape in front of a green or red wedding ring by on a 10 to 12 inch leader.... tipped with corn at about four full colors on the leadcore.....used the downriggers with little success....little trick was to change the small hook to a size 1 rubber worm hook and load it with the corn.... think it might imitate a bug or something but they deffinately like it better than stock.... most fish were in the 15 inch range with one really nice 16-17 incher... all were nice and fat... they seem to be doing really well this year
