This past Sunday, we enjoyed a wonderful evening of trout fishing from our packrafts. We drove 45 minutes outside of Seattle to a local lake that we hadn't been to in 2 years. We launched the packrafts and started trolling with The Packraft Table. We got hung up in the weeds and were forced to switch it up. I put out the anchor and we switched tactics to still fishing with sinker & bait. Within two seconds, I had a fish on. I landed the trout and it ended up 13 in.
We wanted to, and are able t,o keep our catch at this lake so I filleted the trout right there and he was on his way to the smoker.
I re -baited and cast again. About 5 minutes later, fish #2 on! Landed that 11 in. trout.
Now Kristy immediately switched to my tactic.
10 minutes later it was fish on for Kristy.
We both caught one more and headed back to dock. It was a great packraft fishing evening
We are looking forward to smoked trout on our salads and some fish tacos. It was such a relaxing evening and a lot of fun. I can't wait for packraft salmon fishing coming up in 2 weeks!
