  1. I think this was the most boats I've seen this year. We ended up 4 for 5 with three lake trout and one throw back salmon. Started in 80 fow and worked out to 205 fow. What worked for us 0-1 400 ft of copper mixed veggie spoon----on for maybe 30 secounds---90 fow 1-1 300ft of copper chartuse meat rig green dodger throw back salmon --- 120 fow 1-1 160 ft back wire slide diver silver S.D. with chartruse spin and glow ----140fow 1-1 200 ft back wire slide diver silver S.D. with greem spin and glow--- 160fow 1-1 80 ft down on rigger--- green meat rig with green dodger ---160 fow. Real scattered marks from 55-80 ft down out to 205 ft but nothing would go for us. Heard talk on the radio of some nice salmon being caught ---but in the parking lot everyone I talked to had lake trout and no salmon---go figure--great day on the water.
  2. good day!! how did you do Wednesday?? I talked to you that morning at the launch I was with the fishwhich.
  3. slow morning for us---trolled until 10:30 for our first hit in 130 fow landed a steel head in 142 fow and missed another fish in 110 fow---covered water from 80 to 170 --the temp at the ball 50 ft down kept getting warmer as the day progressed-- (started at 45 ended at 55) pulled lines at 12:00 0-1 dipsey out 90 feet---- snow princess 0-1 200 ft of copper ------mixed veggie spoon 1-1 dr at 30 down----- red mongolian beef
  4. Weather forecast and lake conditions matched!! good start to the day. Started in 90fow got one rod in the water and FISH ON---landed it and got three rods set and missed one on the first down rigger---finally got all 6 rods in the water and the 300 copper goes ---small king. half hour later the 400 copper goes and we loose him about 30 ft from the boat--I think it was a good size lake trout. Any way it's 7:30 am and we are 2-4 what a day this is---------------and then we trolled north--south --east --west -- changed our spread up--down --different lures --at 11:30 we had enough-- tired of cleaning cotton sead off the lines--anyone else having this problem? What worked 1-2 down rigger at 45--10# king all green spoon with uv tape 1-1 300 copper 2# king yeck spoon (snow princess) 0-1 400 copper mixed veggie spoon
  5. I'm using the 4 oz weight and the large ring . I tried the larger weight and didn't like the way it pulled. Also i use the rubber and not the spring on the release. All my slide divers are the light bite style. Hope this helps.
