Jim and Dad at Roosevelt (Ft Spokane) 3/12

My dad and I got on the water at about 9AM after camping at Fort Spokane.  I had never fished Casino Flats before, so we started there.  There were about a half dozen boats there along the outside break, so I started scanning with my electronics near the point, and saw most activity at 35'.  After going over a spot that had several fish on it, we immediately dropped the trolling motor and swung back to fish over this waypoint.  We continued with the same technique successful to me my last few trips… a motor oil grub on black 3/8 oz jig dead-sticking it along the bottom.  On our first pass over this spot my dad landed the 19" walleye in the picture.  After several more passes we did not land another fish.  For a short while I placed my grub rod in a rod holder and cast a fire tiger colored Rapala Clackin' Rap  I did have one good solid bite while I was casting it, letting it drop to the bottom and ripped it back to me.  After a few hours here, we relocated to across lake from Casino Flats to the upper end of the flats on that side of the lake.  (Another new to me spot.)  Again, I used electronics for about 10 minutes to locate fish, the swung back to an area that had most fish activity.  We ended up catching three walleye between 20" and 21" in the next 40 minutes while dead-sticking grubs on jigs.  After that we needed to call it a day and head back to Spokane for my daughter's Kindergarten musical this evening.  Will be a great day with the family!
