Hit the road to visit my folks. Came out the gates with a salmon, and had a solid rainbow hit my spoon on the retrieve! How lucky! Salmon Hookup at 01:45 and a BIG rainbow at 7:08 the luckiest fish ever!

I was trolling Sufix Advanced 832 Leadcore. YOU MUST use a good quality barrel swivel. Otherwise the lead core will come out of it's sheath! 8lb fluorocarbon leader also about 8 feet of it. Stinger Spoons and Plazma Spoons worked well. Lake Trout are deep in September but the Salmon and Rainbow trout seemed to be about 60 feet down in general. The rod is a Daiwa M Saltist I use for livelining stripers also. The reel is an Abu Garcia Ambassador 7000 which holds 12 colors of this lead core. The 6500 Ambassador holds 7 colors.

I was jigging a hogy epoxy jig during the trip but as shown in the video, only small lakers for me on that.
