Is there any commercial netting allowed in Baker Lake like they do in Lk. Washington?

Not that I am aware of. Fish are trucked in from the dam. But I have been know to be wrong in the past.  :chuckle:

The tribe does their damage before the fish make it to the dam

They could just pick their half out of the truck.

I thought they gave the tribe their fish directly from the truck?

Tribes will net the Baker River, not the lake.

Hey fowlr, what kind of phone do you have?  I need to switch mine and have noticed your pics are always limits.  Mine must be broken.

I usually fish at 35' or deeper always.  I troll from .7 to 1 mph typically.  I don't troll in a straight line.
I make my own gear for trolling, so it isn't something that you see from Mac's or others.  It works good, so I have been tight lipped on it.  Otherwise it may be hanging on shelves in short order.   :tup:

Heading up to Baker tomorrow. Any recent reports and locations? I.E. are they still catching 'em near the dam or have they started catching 'em mid lake?

It's been a hit or a miss, doesn't seem like they are liking the normal gear.
