  1. Yep it changed alot from Saturday to sunday. Saturday was pretty easy for everyone and sunday morning they either moved or shut off, I think moved. I started where I got them saturday in 25ft, on Sunday, and messed around for an hour and a half without a bite. Then I pointed it East and took it all the way out to 175 catching one here and there. Fishing was better out around 150 but I just ran out of time. I agree the water is getting to warm in close and that why they moved.
  2. In Wisconsin you also need: sport trolling liscence $100 guide liscence $40 permit to charter through county $350. for another 500 bucks
  3. Charter lakes here too. cheap for me, like $500 for the year. It is going to depend on the boat value for rates.
  4. It's 2013 Josh, treat yourself to some shimanos...
  5. This is a great point. Flashers work alot better than spoons in warm water. Also try to find 1 or 2 flashers and 1 or 2 flies that always catch fish and just run them on every rod, you will see your numbers go up. the same flashers and flies stay on my riggers and divers all year.
  6. I cant imagine trying to untangle that stuff once a fish is netted. A fish on a plug is bad enough.
  7. Michigan guys troll way faster then us Wisconsin guys. Just the way it is. Speed has to do with lead length and yes it will affect the fish you catch. If you troll slow say 1.7, you will catch more trout, but if you push past 2.2 you will also catch alot more cohos and steelhead than kings. On my depth raider trolling flashers I find 1.8-2.0 catches the most kings, with 1.9-2.0 being the sweet spot. Sure you can catch them way faster but not nearly as consistently. When the fish are biting like they have been all year it's pretty hard to get it wrong, but when it gets tough you will see the guys who come in with 5 fish and the guys who are still doing double digits. Speed and direction are key, and the guys always getting them know just how important that is.
  8. Thats funny Randy and I were talking about that Sunday and I told him I don't think it matters just like you said. I run a 25 inch lead to the head of the fly and troll 1.8-2.0 and NEVER change that. Once you figure it out those are 2 things you never have to factor into your program again. I fish 2 color flashers and 2 colors of flies, that's it, and if it aint working I'm either not on fish or going the wrong direction. I think the main reason people struggle with flashers is because they create WAY to many variables, the fish don't change what they eat everyday so there is no reason to change your setups everyday.
  9. Don't you guys have downriggers on your boats??? At that depth you could easiely catch 3 fish to 1 on a rigger by the time you got that copper in. In my experience when the fish go that deep it's hammer time with just riggers and divers.
  10. I'm sure this wont be popular but I have released thousands and thousands of salmon over the years. I've let over 30 fish go in a tournament more than once. I don't think they all die. If you shake the hook out with a pliers at the back of the boat, how is that any different than if they fall off 10 feet behind the boat?? I think people get to worked up over this stuff, especially seeing their is no proof that they are dieing when released anyhow. If you don't eat them or have anyone to give them to, your just not supposed to go fishing???
  11. Nice work, take some pictures of your hunt too. Would love to see that!
  12. Fished the harbor on Sunday morning after the thunderstorms quit. Very windy so stayed inside. A lot less fish in the harbor right now than outside. Went 4 for 6 with all the bites in the same stretch of water. All fish came on small orange spoons behind 2 colors. Most fish came on a color change in water. Nothing big all browns from 3-5 pounds. Slower speeds of 1.6 on the depth raider was best. Water was anywhere from 48- 52 degrees. Once that water gets above 50 degrees the fish sure seem to move out. Hope for calmer water this next weekend but, ain't lookin good right now.
