I fished Useless Bay in a boat for a few days this week... caught several fish, almost all of them residents I think. No pinks. I caught most of my fish just trolling a clouser behind the boat. I did try casting a bunch, but it was slim pickin's. Full sink line with chartreuse clousers. Several follows right up to the boat by very nice fish, but they weren't buying. I did catch a few smaller ones. It was good time spent on the water with my kids. Everybody caught something.
