  1. Gotcha. Thanks! I don't have a lot to sell but would certainly be interested in buying! If you could post more info as available that would be great.
  2. Sounds interesting! Can you explain a bit how it works? I'm picturing a bunch of guys taking tackle they have extra of or don't use and "trading" with others? Is that right? How about date/location?
  3. Nice! How far down were you in the water column & what type of rods - downriggers, copper, dipsys?
  4. Tough night. Started in 90FOW. Slowly trolled out hit a nice 15# King in 125 FOW. Did a few circles on the waypoint with no more hits. Went out to 150 FOW and then back in to 80 FOW with no more hits. Ended 1 for 1. Caught the King on a wire dipsey, 140 out, spotted dick meat rig.
  5. Something else to try would be a larger diameter copper (60# versus 45#). We tried that last year. I liked the idea because I could get the same depth with less line out. It worked out good and we took as many hits on it as our other coppers. I was worried about fighting the weight of the copper instead of the fish, but because you can have less line out I think it's a wash compared to a lower diameter with more line out.
  6. Guys, I have a gift card to use and need some more flashers. Curious your top "go-to" brands, colors, sizes? The ones you need to have in the water almost all the time... There are so many out there now it can be hard to know where to start. I'd rather go with something that's been proven by my fellow fisherman. FYI - I'm in West Michigan and fish out of Port Sheldon. Thanks!
  7. That's great! Where were you going to put a handful of 20# Kings if you caught them? Maybe tie them in front and they could pull you - save even more gas!
  8. Weather looked good so made time for a quick 3 hr trip last night. Decided to head out deeper for steelhead & younger salmon. Ended up 3 for 3, 2 steelhead & 1 laker. We started in 170 FOW and trolled out to 200 with no hits. Decided to turn back east. Hit the Laker in 195 FOW and the Steelhead in 180-170 FOW. Trolling speed was 2.6 SOG. What worked: Rigger down 40', double orange crush spoon - 8# Laker 200' copper, Caramel Dolphin SS spoon - 11# Steelhead Mag Braid Slide Diver 90' back, silver w/ redhead Jplug - 4# Steelhead Didn't kill em, but not too bad for 2 hrs with lines in the water. Had a few flasher/flys and 1 meat rig out that didn't take any hits.
  9. Great evening on Lake Michigan - sunshine and calm water! 4-4, 2 kings & 2 coho with one nice 24 lb male. 110-120 fow. 2.3 SOG. South troll. Both kings came around sunset. Wire Dipsy meat rig green dot spin doctor 180 back took the 2 kings (24# & 14#). Rigger blue crush spindoctor/moo moo meat rig 95 down - 3# coho Rigger copper dolphin 45 down - 6# coho
  10. Meat rigs have been producing also both on riggers and divers. I'd target the 60-80' range for where to have my lures running.
  11. We ran out of the bigger mid-teen Kings out in 160-180 fow, but instead started hitting a lot of coho and steelhead out there along with a few smaller kings. Caught fish on both east and west trolls. Fun fishing for 3 days straight! Back to work now. AM - 9 for 13. 160-180 FOW. 2.1 - 2.3 SOG. 5 coho 5-9# range, 1 steelhead 7#, 3 kings 7-11# range. PM - 6 for 8. 140-170 FOW. 2.1 - 2.3 SOG. 3 coho 5-8# range, 2 steelhead 7 & 9#, 1 king 9#.

  13. You bet. I forgot to include that a bit slower speed seemed to be working - about 2.3 SOG. West/SW troll on most.
