  1. Made it out last night for a short time. Fished from 6 to 9:30. Started in 130 fow and went out to 180. Got pretty bumpy in the deeper water. Water temps were good as close as 60 fow. The night was not super productive as we ended 1 for 1. We took the fish early and had hopes of finding more, but the fish had other plans I guess.

    Our tally for the evening, 8 lb coho caught on a jawbreaker spoon off a 150 copper in 153 fow.

    Keep Em' Tight!

  2. Started out about 5pm. Set up in 120 fow trolling west. Fished 120-150 with 120- 130 being the best for us. Fishing was very slow, typical June right? We ended 4 for 4 on 4 different setups. Everything taken on a westerly troll.

    Here's what worked for us:

    150 copper, Jawbreaker, coho

    Downrigger 110 dn, UV Blue Dolphin, king

    Downrigger 70 dn, Siggs Brushed Stainless Fly, coho

    4cl leadcore, Craig's Christmas, coho

    Fish weren't big but they kicked the skunk out of the box. My advice, if anyone cares, if you mark the fish stay with them, don't go to deeper water. Lots of boats last night decided they weren't biting, let's go deep. Be patient, stick with the fish. Lot's of skunks, according to the radio.

    Keep Em' Tight!

  3. First time out his year was over a month ago and I was freezing my butt off. At that time there were no insects, by air or by sea. So, how's things now? How are the black flies and the sea fleas? I'm heading up this week for the summer and looking for a bug report.


  4. I'm looking to upgrade a few reels and I've got 8 reels I'm looking to sell to help offset the cost. They're all in working order and maintained every year. Drags have been upgraded courtesy of Tuna Tom. These are good starter or backup reels.

    Here's what I have:

    2- Magda 30 DX linecounter reels, Excellent shape 25.00

    1- Classic 300 L, well used, most of the lettering worn off, good working order 20.00

    1- Classic 302 L, some wear, very good shape 25.00

    1- Convector CN 30 L, some wear, good shape 25.00

    1- Convector CN 45 L, some scratches, very good shape 35.00

    1- Classic 450 L, well used, lettering still visable, good shape 30.00

    1- Cabelas Gold DMG 45 linecounter, some wear by linecounter, very good shape 35.00

    Shipping cost determined by zip and number of reels purchased.

    Make me an offer.









  5. Stopped by Cabelas today to take a look at Cold Water Reels. Honestly, I was not impressed. The drag took a few turns before it was actually engaged. Then it went too tight in less than a half a turn. The clicker was weak and worse than the old Depthmaster 2 they had on display.

    Compared to the Convector, this didn't seem like an upgrade. Maybe it was just the reel I had and not a overall for the series. Just my opinion, thought someone else might want to know.
