Father's Day Fishing Success

The Burkhart guys annual fishing trip was a huge success last weekend.  It's a Father's Day gift.  No wives and children, just a couple of days to relax, fish and play poker.  

It's their one chance to fish for Kokanee on Lake Mary Ronan. They stay in a rustic cabin at the Lake Mary Ronan Resort and there's a lot of planning as to what food supplies to take. There are certain beverages that are required if you are planning to really catch a lot of fish. It takes a lot of phone calls and emails to decide what fishing tackle is needed and which fishing technique to use to catch Kokanee.  All good things.

I wish I had more photos to share with you but all I have is the photo of the fish they brought home.

35 Kokanee this year

Retired Mountain Man will smoke these as soon as we get some nice warm weather.  Smoked Kokanee, one of the tastiest treats in the food world.

Yes, I know Father's Day is in June, but after the first year's trip to Lake Mary Ronan, we learned that to really catch Kokanee, the guys needed to fish earlier in May.

I think their success was because they tried your technique Connie... "Here, Fishy, Fishy, Fishy!" I haven't been able to verify it.
Guys really need to go drink Kokanee while fishing Kokanee once in a while. They come back much happier :)
