  1. We had our bites spread out pretty evenly, but we did have our first 5 bites very quickly after reaching 155-165 fow.

  3. 4/7 now. Another steelhead on the 300 copper kevorkian sd. Lost a nice fish on a green 11 inch paddle fly on the rigger down 85 feet.
  4. 3/5 right now. Diver back 125 white sd. 2 kings. 300 copper kevorkian sd steelhead. White sd on rigger down 55 0/2 with snapped off steelhead. 160 fow.
  5. Going to try and update as the morning unfolds. Waiting in the parking lot for a friend. On our way to the launch soon! Plan to start in 130 fow.
  6. Ended up 5-6. Mostly hit fish in the 160 fow range. Water surface temp was pretty much 57-59 everywhere we were. Two big kings were about 22-23 lbs. Speed 2.2-2.6 at the ball (60 feet down) Order of our fish was as follows: WSW Troll King - 140 fow - Dreamweaver Froggy 8" Spin Doctor and Dreamweaver UV meat rig - Mag Diver w/ring back 125 on 3 King - 160 fow - Silver Streak Mag Mixed Veggie - Size 1 Diver w/ring back 125 on 2.5 King - 160 fow - Dreamweaver Froggy 8" Spin Doctor and Dreamweaver UV meat rig (snapped us off at the boat) - Mag Diver w/ring back 125 on 3 ENE Troll Steelhead - 150 fow - Stingray UV Gold Orange Tuxedo - Free Slider - Ball down 45 feet WSW Troll Coho - 160 fow - Stingray UV Blue Veggies - 400 Copper King - 165 fow - Silver Stream Mag Lemonberry - 300 Copper
  7. 4-5 so far. Started in 130 fow trolled west. Mag Divers back 125. Meat and spoons. Free slider on rigger. 400 copper blue veggie stinger
  8. 0 for 0. Fished from 7 to 8:30. The waves were too big for me! 1.5-2 foot rollers with 3's mixed in. Wonder where they were coming from because it wasn't windy. Went from 60 to 130 fow and then turned around. I'll be back out in the morning and hopefully the rollers will have settled down.
  9. Take the boat on a sea trial and see what you get. Figure out what the idle speed is, and then decide how to dial it in. My guess is the best bet would be one large trolling bag place on the same side as the running outboard could do it.
  10. Wow! How did this end up happening?🤢 Wouldn't have gone out without the stable forecast. Didn't venture past 70 fow. That was far enough away. Been a few times the kicker brought me home.
  11. Motor fired right up once we got back to the dock. Might be looking at replacing the power pack, the regulator and stator? I've just about had it with this motor. Might need to buy a rebuilt one.
  12. Motor wouldn’t start at the dock so my plans were partially ruined. So I thought. Used the kicker to get out to 60 fow. Fished north and then south between 60 and 70. Lots of bait. Lots of marks. Cold water (55 degrees down 50). Got a 20 lb king on a spin doctor out 120 on a high diver. Got a 5 lb lake trout on a meat rig out 95 on a low diver. Fished for about 2 hours.
