  1. Fished in front of channel 25-42 FOW. The baitfish and fish were thick in there. We ended up 2 for 5. Broke off a nice fish (what we assume was a steelhead) on a meat rig. 5 out of our 6 rods took a hit. Lost meat rig was a Big Weenie Spotted Dick, Dreamweaver SS Wreaking Ball, Dreamweaver UV Blue Dolphin in standard size, Warrior Dragon Slayer, Fire Flies UV Jalenskys Special Fly with custom flasher. Loving the cold water in shallow!
  2. Dang, if you ever get a lot like this again let me know.
  3. Nice job again out there Kevin. It was nice to meet you as well. I agree, always great putting a face to a name.
  4. The DNR must be right on then. Thanks. Unfortunately, we did not get to see any of that calming down out there. LOL
  5. We fished a small family/friends tournament yesterday. Ended up only going 2 for 4, but we did get big fish of the tournament with a 17.3 pound king. Here's what we caught fish on: 8# king on rigger down 70 with blue uv glow meat rig and white/green glow 8" spin doctor in 90 FOW SE troll. The big king came on a rigger down 60 in 85 FOW on a orange glow Silver Horde Ace Hi II Canadian. No hits on any copper or lead. The size of the fish sure seem smaller this year. If years past in this tournament, big fish was in the upper 20's.
  6. Beautiful. Great pic! That's a huge part to me of being out there; for the sunrise and the sunset.
  7. You are not kidding that storm was nasty! We were in the mud as well and got a nice steelhead on s 3 color and Moonshine Red Pepper spoon. We saw the storm coming and beelined it back to Port Sheldon. Got off the water just before the heavens opened up. That was our first time in the mud this year. Stinks about the weather as the fish were stacked in there.
  8. 1 for 1. Small good eater king on 300 copper, black and red meat rig(don't know the name), 170 FOW, around 6:45. Other than that a nice boat ride on a beautiful morning. I sure hope the fishing picks up out there soon.
  9. Great job! Nice to see someone found some fish this morning.
  10. Very cool video. Thanks for sharing. You sure can learn a lot from underwater footage. It's very interesting to see how different manufacturers spoons perform in the water and how the fish react to the action.
  11. Great work! Phenomenal fishinh for this time of year.
  12. Nice work! That is a great idea. I am especially amazed you got the trolling spead down though on that thing.
  13. Thanks for the report. Sorry you hurt yourself reeling one in.
  14. JVanderVeenen, that's a good thought to swith over to braid. May have to try that.
  15. Thanks for all of the replies guys! I'll try them. Fish on all!
  16. Thanks. Already using them and I don't like messing with rubber bands.
  17. Thanks Rob. Is there a special snubber or just the ones I run on my dipseys?
  18. Anyone using them? Will they help prevent my rigger line from snapping? As we have broke off 2 rigger lines in 2 years now, I am looking for a solution. Thanks
  19. Funny thing Mark but having less rods in the water after the cable snapped May have improved our fishing as we now had a wider spread.
  20. Well Saturday morning started out very frustrating and expensive but ended up good (fishing wise at least). Bye 10:30 we were only 1-3 with the one fish coming on a Moonshine Stripetastic on DR 90 down in 160 FOW and one break off on a dipsey 188 back with a Moonshine RV Happymeal (fish broke the line). We kept heading out West and got to 190, when snap there went all on the down rigger cable and the ball to the bottom of the lake. At this moment we were very frustrated and thinking about cutting our losses and heading back in. Instead I suggested we go back to the 165 FOW range and that's when the fun began. We quickly took a double with one on a Moo Moo Dream Weaver meat rig. The dipseys kept firing with one coming on a lemon ice regular size spoon (crazy coho wrapped the line and the spoon completely around its' mouth, bending the spoon (never saw that before). The other dipsey (both were braid dipseys) took 2 on a 11 inch green and white Fishcatcher with a green and blue fly. We ended up just circling back thru that 165 foot range and ended up 5 for 8, with 2 coho both nice size and 3 kings both in the upper teens pushing twenty. It was great to get out again as it had been weeks since I was last out.
