Our first pass through the Kewaunee gap resulted in nothing, but we did notice that there was some warm water in a little pocket that we missed to the outside on our first pass. We pulled our lines and set back up shallower to pull through the dingy water. As the water temps went from 35.6° to 37.9° our first board of the 2013 began screaming back! Fish On! The best part about it was the fact that 10 seconds before the board dropped back we both mentioned that we should catch one any second now!
After that kind of action we decided that we had to take another pull through that area, so we pulled lines and set back up for another run. This time we had one fish on briefly but it shook free. We then decided to continue our troll towards Algoma, since the waves were building to 4 feet with some 5 footers mixed in! This turned out to be a wise choice, as we found another pod of hungry Brown Trout about 25 minutes later!
When all was said and done, we landed 3 Browns, and the fourth broke our line right by the boat. I was happy with the outcome, not perfect, but I will take 3 out of 4 any day! We both thought about pulling up and heading back north for another pull through this area, but with the waves and distance from Algoma, we refrained.
