  1. When I saw the nice Intrepid I didn't see anything out of the ordinary as far as trolling goes. I think we all pissed each other off at some point last night. I did have one tangle last night with a boat that went into neutral while fighting a fish in the narrow part of the channel. We had no where to go because there were boats trolling the opposite way. I released my real and he did the untangling as we both finished trolling out. Nothing lost. When fishing that tight I will only run riggers and divers and all in tight close to the boat. I saw some guys running boards and the boards were close to their boats so I'm guessing they are running diving plugs with short leads. Just enough to get them near the bottom.
  2. I was in the channel last night for a while. I should have been in there more. I first ran out to 60' and fished to 90' without a hit. Went back into to do some combat fishing (yuck) and went one for two. Lost one on a white paddle and green fly and landed a 19.10 lb on a bloddy nose spoon. It sounds like I should have ran more plugs as there was a boat at the cleaning station with 9 big fish. There was also a couple of guys that had I think 5 nice walleye and one 25 pound king caught on a walleye pole.
  3. Nice job with the fish. Too bad with the hook thru the nail. If they keep thrashing it is best to club them. That saves a lot of pain and only takes a second.
  4. Went 1 for 3 last night out of Port Sheldon. -Caught a lake trout on 300' copper with a froggy paddle with green fly in 115' of water. -Lost a salmon at the back of the boat that got tangled in one of the dipsey lines, that came on a rigger 45' down with a carmel dolphin in 115' of water. -Lost another one on a dipsy on #1 about 175' back with a wonder bread in approx 90' of water. Never saw that one. The lake was nice but the fish weren't biting for me. It sounded like others did better. I didn't ask what water depth they were in. Good Luck Dennis Little Gem II
  5. I felt like a fish out of the water last night. There were lots of cob webs to work out. Ended up 1 for 3. Landed a Coho and lost two others after a decent amount of time. The coho was caught on a 8" frog paddle and green fly. One other fish was on a 8" white paddle with green/white fly and a Dreamweaver Get-R-Done spoon. All the fish came from 85' of water and 30'-50' down. The night didn't start well at the dock. Saturday the boat ran fine at home on the hose. Last night the boat started right up after dumping it in the water and after returning from parking the truck it wasn't running. Tried to restart and it would only run for a few seconds and then stall. I slid the dog box lid open and there was about 1/2" of gas in the bottom of the bilge! The bottom gasket on the fuel pump was sucked in and was leaking and not allowing the gas to pump up to the carb (glad it happened at the dock and not at 90'). I had to remove the fuel pump and reposition the gasket and adhere in place with a little peratex. I sopped up the gas with some old towels that were in the truck for drying off the boat and laid them on the curb by the truck to dry. After venting the bilge area for 10-15min we decided to give it a try. It started right up and no more leaks. Has anyone else seen the bottom gasket on a fuel pump suck in? The rest of the night went ok other that being a little clumsy for the first time out. Little Gem II Dennis
  6. I'm not into the tourny thing but may have to give it a try some time. What is the better tournys to enter? I would be interested in just a Saturday tourny. Jake73 I was fishing from a old cream colored 24' Searay. We did talk to a boat while tieing things down for the drive home that caught 4. They were in a four winns I think it was approx 20'ish long. I remebered that one of the other fish came on a magnum bloddy nose DW on a dipsy. I need to work on my VHF communication while out on the water. Good luck to everyone in the tourny.
  7. It was a pretty good night on the lake. The waves were around 1' as predicted. We ended up 8 or 11. (3) 10-12 pound kings and (5) 4-7 pound kings. 110-140 was the depth that worked best for us. Blue dolphin DW on SWR down 80' was the hotest catching 4 of the fish. Blue bubble spin doctor on a rigger down 75'. Mixed Veggies on a dipsy set at 1 back 160'. I can't remember what the other (2) were caught on but I think anything blue/green between 60-90 down would work. There were lots of boats out but they were scattered so no competition for water space. Little Gem II Dennis
  8. Jake73, I'm planning on going out of PS tonight. I'm hopping to be out around 5:00 and plan on fishing between 120-170 per the above recommendations. Boat name is Little Gem II Dennis
  9. I've launched my 24' SeaRay SRV without any problems yet. Like one of the other responses on the way out try to stay a little south (left) in the river narrows.
