Epic Fishing With Family - Last Chance Bay

We found a camp site in the 5th western bay out from the back of Last Chance, and fished for 2 days.

In total we caught 50+ small-mouth, 4 stripers, 3 large-mouth, 2 Walleye (the first we've ever caught!), and a couple blue-gill!

The fish tacos were excellent, the camping was an epic experience including some 30-40mph gusts at 2am that threatened to launch our Springbar into the air... with us in it!

Overall, an awesome weekend with family!

Stripers (18”-20") caught trolling with a Bomber Deep Fat Free Shad Cranker - Eaten for dinner
Small mouth (8”-14") caught fishing rocky points using various jigs, hula grubs, senkos, spoons - Released
Large mouth caught using small chartreuse jig and a Sammy surface lure
from shoreline - Released
Walleye caught trolling with Bomber Deep Fat Free Shad Cranker (same one as the Striper) - Tacos... mmmm
Blue gill caught from shoreline using fly-fishing flies - Sacrificed in the name of science (stomach had what looked like small worms in them)

When you catch a 1 pound walleye, you get 2 pounds of fillets. They are a very meaty fish!

Congrats on a successful fishing trip and good luck with the Stingray.
The two Walleye were about 16” and produced more meat than the four 22”-24” Stripers.

So by my estimation they’re 4 x 2 (8) times more meaty!

And thanks for the good luck wishes with the boat. Hopefully it’s something simple. 5E1A1366-08A7-4FB4-97A7-FEAD454B1483.jpeg

Great report. Even a wind event can't ruin ALL the fun on a Powell trip! I think Bulldog Marine is a fairly modernized place that could help you out with your boat issue. B & T is right next door to them, but I'm not so sure they are setup for computer diagnostics for your setup.
