  1. Fished 5:00 to 9:30 and went 1 for 5 (about a ten pound steelie) Moonshine sand bur and mandarin minnow took the most hits but something made a rip on a blue paddle on blue fly right at dusk as well direction didn't seem to matter but most marks (and action) came around 115 FOW and 2.25 to 2.75 for speed. Encouraging to see more marks than what I been seeing and may make the Holland trip again come the week end

    Planer board lights

    Saw a report on the news a week or so ago about a paint they are selling in Europe that reflects like mad. they were spraying the antlers on reindeer to keep them from being hit. It cant be seen in normal day light but when it gets hit by light at night it glows very bright. They said it should be available in the US within the year. Looking forward to it. It should work great for boards.

    Ps 8/17

    not sure where that date came from, but it SHOULD read 9/3....pain meds?
  4. Sorry for the late post, but spent yesterday getting patched up. Went 3 for 4 on an evening trip. First was a 10lb steely on a Budweiser looking White/Red spoon I put down 50' on the rigger as a lark. A half an hour later came a nice king on the wire 115' back, green fly green paddle. He made a hard run to port at the end and I tore a muscle in my arm turning the boat quicker than I should have to compensate. I tried to bring him and the net in, but couldn't manage it. Just got settled when the other wire went (blue fly blue paddle) with a ten pound king on it. I pulled the rod but couldn't bring him in either. So my buddy caught him as well. We stayed in the 120' to 140' range from 5:00 till dark. Other than the medical issues a pretty good night.

    where to?

    Thanks guys. Sounds like west sister is still the place to get to. I remember it being quite a hall to get there, but gotta go where the fish are eh? Thanks again for all the help. I'll post and let you know how we do.

    where to?

    I haven't fished Erie since I went with my Dad over 10 years ago. Now Dad is gone but I really want to try it again. I think we went to Monroe, but it might have been Luna Pier. The wife and I want to get a room the night before, but not sure where to stay or even the best place to go or launch. We'll be trailering the boat from over by Kalamazoo Friday (6/13) night and any pointers on location would sure help.

    I was out there also and had the same results. Got to thinking. We marked so many fish (and bait balls) with so few takers I wonder if they were mostly shakers. That might explain all the "hits and misses" Just a thought.
  8. Finally connected. 6 for 9. Two stealies and four kings. 125 to 130 flow, riggers and dipsies had the most takers. A friend wanted to reach me about lead and copper, but one king and one shaker was all we could muster on it. White fly white paddle, and blue on blue, along with flounder pounder glows.
  9. Slow day for us. Set lines at 85 fow and went west to 150 with no takers and not many marked. Turned around and tried a zig zag pattern back to 75...nuttin. Then back west to 220. Finally in 190 got one king around 10lb on a kavorkian on the wire diver back 205. In all that water we didn't mark many fish (or any bait) Thought I must be doing something wrong, but I asked a couple guys in the river coming back in how they did and they said onezies twozies as well. Nice day out though..and it beat watching TV.
  10. After a late start (8:00) from the dock, and working our way around a few boats in the river that didn't seem to be doing much, we set lines at 60' and headed West with some South in it. Nothing until 115 fow and a 12lb King 110' feet down on a chrome jay-plug with a red ladder back. Then went out to 130 fow before turning back in. Headed due East and again at 115' nice ripp on the wire diver (blue paddle and fly) until the line failed half way between the dipsey and the paddle. A few moments later a fair fish one for a bit a bit before he slipped off. (same chrone on red jay-plug) So 1 for three. King was still silver and full of fight. Most fish marked were on bottom (a little cooler?) Hope the weather allows another shot at 'em this week end.
  11. So that Coho must have been hanging right ON bottom eh?...explains all the bottom huggers I've seen on the finder for the past couple of weeks. Thanks for the report.
  12. Thanks for the reort...I'm headed out Saturday
  13. Went 5 for six from 7:00 to 10:00 three kings and two steelies All fish over ten lbs pole dancer behind a UV flasher and moonshines took em all 90I to 108 fow north troll. Wife caught her first steelhead (13 lbs) and he didnt disapoint.
  14. Fished 4:00 til dark but couldn't figure them out. Found fish in the 75 to 80 foot range and had a few trips but just couldnt connect...guess they just weren't my fish. Did have one trip and when I brought it in the spoon had a lamprey on it. All I can figure is that a fish (with the lamprey attached) hit an got free but snagged the lamprey in the process...I'll try and post a pic but dont think I have rights yet. Also saw the meteor on the way in.
  15. Went 4 for 6. in the am. ALL hitz on michale jacksons...All fish at 45 feet down in 70 to 80 fow. All fish from 12 to 17 lbs. Great fun.
