Our best setup was floating pink and peach spawn sacs with Steelhead Skein cured in Pautzke's Natural Bor X O Fire cure. The fish really showed preference to these two colors, as we tried multiple other colors without any success. We also landed a couple fish on uncured Steelhead eggs, but the cured eggs seemed to get a few more bites on this outing. It is amazing how particular these fish can be on certain days, and then on other days they seem to bite just about anything. This is what makes it challenging, and what keeps me going back for more!
Steelhead are honestly one of the hardest fighting fish pound for pound that we can catch in Wisconsin, although they are never easy to catch there are times when you can do quite well! All the hard work and effort put in to learn how to consistently catch these fish will eventually pay off, as it did for Derek and I on this day!
