04/19/2014 - Mike in Tac - American Lake, Pierce County, WA
Went out with 3 friends for a few hours today - 5 fish caught in about 4 hours. 2 rainbows and 3 kokanee. Both trolling and casting bait worked. Weather turned really sour by 11am. The stockers are definitely in! Lots of folks out there with fish today.

Got the boat in the water around 2:00 pm. Motored to my go to hole and within 10 minutes hooked the first Muskie of the year. He wasn't big, around 24". Must have been from the '09 plant. He took a perch rapala. Saw another one cruising the shallows. A lot bigger than the first, but couldn't get him to bite.

Hit Kapowsin for a few hours in the afternoon. Got several hits but only managed to land one. Fish are there but they're really picky and will play with your bait for 5 minutes. Green power bait off the bottom with garlic scent.

American Lake 3-17-14  
The weather said no rain and up to 11mph wind. I thought I would try it. This is the first time this year that I have taken out little Ol’ Girl. I came with a rod and reel with leaded line to try and then my usual 2 rods that I could use for long line or downriggers.  
Launched and parked just before 10am. Good. Boat didn’t sink so I remembered to put the plug in. But I couldn’t get the electric motor started at first. I had to wiggle some wires and I was off toward Russells landing but the wind was blowing pretty good so I let it take me toward the north and Silcox. I put in the leaded line 2 and 3 colors out another rod at 30-40 foot on the downrigger. I saw Trent’s Clifford out between the island and the hospital. He hadn’t caught any yet.  
I kept changing the depth on the downrigger. Up then down again. It helped smooth out the clutch. I brought in the leaded line and put out one for long lining. I was on the northeast side of the island trying to put gear away and downrigger was at 19 foot because I was in the area that kinda has a hill and goes up to 36 feet from 60. I looked over and the rod was dancing. I got in a nice football of a koke on a Dick Nite 50/50 dodger and a Wannafish A Lure Green Agitator. This was about 11am.  
The wind was getting pretty steady and it was really hard to keep it straight! I tried to stack on the downrigger but I could not get it out, the boat was almost turning around if I didn’t keep my had on the tiller. So I gave up the 2nd rod and got one more bite.  
It was just too windy. I was going to have to go in. Said bye to WidgeonmanGH texted Trent I was going and headed toward the launch.  
I was trying to troll but was not doing well so I brought it in and tried to make it in the wind.  
At the southwest end of the island I texted Trent to see if he would tow me to the launch. Then he took a bit of time and I tried to get Mike@ Bills but he didn’t answer and my phone battery was 5%. Then Trent couldn’t see me. I had to wave like a mad woman as I was being blown down towards Bills. Trent came and saved me redeeming him from the Merwin incident.  
It was funny cause he was barbequing on the back of the boat and he got up to turn the brats and Clifford would turn towards me.  
I made it in safe and the neighbor had fish dinner. I tested my battery and it was just down 50% so I think 20 mph winds are too much for a 46 pound thrust electric motor.  
PS I took the temp in 60 foot of water at 19 feet and it was 46 degrees.

We fished from 8 till 2. Threw absolutely everything we had at them. We marked fish but we just couldn't get them to hit anything. We staggered the riggers and had one line on top all day. Just couldn't find the magic.  
Heard that another boat caught 1 Koke and 1 trout. It's early still.

Kokanee_Slayer and I started fishing about 7am. I lowered a thermometer to 25 feet on the downrigger, it was 40 degrees.  
He had been catching kokanee between 17 and 27 feet so we started at 17feet. He was using his go to gear and I started with a Pink Splatter on the downrigger at 27 feet and then stacked a small spoon for a dodger with a Wannafish A Lure Bloody Mary on it at 17 foot. I get a cell phone call from Cami of F24 and as I hung up about 7:30am I get a fish on my top line. K_S nets mine and then he gets one on. We get it in and then I try to bring in the downrigger ball (it has been a while since I have been fishing) I forgot to take the stacker clip off and it grinds up the cable and knocks off the bead and I see that part of the cable has frayed. K_S says it will be ok so we reload everything again but I put the stacker clip away and just long lined my second rod. I changed up a few times and caught a trout on the long lined rod with a Dick Nite orange / copper dodger with a Zray spoon. I let it go. We trolled around and it was 10:30 when K_S line is pulled out of the clip and he gets another kokanee in the boat. He was fishing at 30 feet so I lowered my down to 27 ( I was at 21 feet) while he is getting his in the boat my rod goes down and I have another in the boat caught with a Dick Nite Watermelon dodger and a Orange Thing.  
That was all the kokanee we caught. It was a great first outing of the year. Early kokanee!

Figured I would drag the kayak out of the garage and hit the lake today before the superbowl...saw plenty of fish rolling on the surface, but almost all the fish I marked were below 30 feet. Depths I fished ranged from 30-60 feet. No luck on the green/red nightcrawler tipped wedding ring so I switched over to a crappie jig tipped with nightcrawler and a crappie nugget, trying to catch a few perch...and what do ya know, two 13 inch rainbows joined me just in time to get home and watch the Hawks!

Hit the nasty this morning and at lunch and all that was there was a BUNCH of seals/ sea lions, three other fisherman and no fish, hit mounts on military side and the handicap hole. Guess it's time to fish for metal heads. Tight lines.

Successful afternoon. Agree with JJ, scent was working well. It started real slow but the last hour of fishing was hot. All the fish are dark and look like cancerous coy though.

I was the only person on the river having success. Caught 1 male and 1 female chum in 3 hrs. The key is scent. Scent and corkies with yarn was the key. Be back this afternoon

Very little action. Fished for 4 HRS and only got one, flossed it. He was dark and NASTY, ready to die any day. Saw a couple rolling but that was about it. I live near the mouth, I see and hear the sea lions and seals all day long...damn things are going to town on the fish.

Did some post-Xmas fishing at Riverbend again. Fished for 3 hours and landed one chrome-ish Chum hen. Other than that, not much action from me or our group.

Fished the tank bridge on Friday..12/20 for about 4.5 hours and I was actually surprised at how many fish me and my buddy caught. I know it sounds like garbage but we caught at least 12 fish with 3 of them being bright (and I mean DIME BRIGHT) chrome bucks from 12-18 lbs caught on bobber/jig/shrimp combo. Small jigs with purple in them seemed to work best. Another friend went on Saturday and didn't see a fish caught all day...its hit an miss at best.

Stopped at the gravel bar below the Mounts Rd bridge, and talked with the tribal netters. They said they are getting fish, but slowly, mainly because of the nearly 200 sea lions at the mouth of the Nisqually. One boat arrived shortly before I got there, and had 25-30 chum in the bottom of the boat...most showing some spawning colors, but otherwise big and bright.

Hit up Riverbend, fished for 6 hours along various stretches. Threw all sorts of corky/yarn combos, eggs, spinners. Scent. Nothing but one hook up and lost it. Many fishermen came and went. Out of the 12 different people I saw at Riverbend, only three guys managed to pull out 1 fish each. And this was during my whole 6 hours of fishing. Not sure why many are are calling this river "hot" cause it sure ain't according to the locals and the woman that run the guest check-in. Maybe the river is not, but not this area.
