  1. I see this so often on our fish finder (in the attached picture) where all the fish are lined up vertically like this. What is actually going on under the surface? Do fish actually hang out vertically like this? If anything I would expect them to hang out horizontally at the temp break. Could it be the sonar bouncing back and forth between a couple fish and making multiple marks? Just curious because I see it so often. Does anyone else have this and know what's going on?


  2. Went 1/2 in the morning. 60 fow miss was blue bubble behind a chinook diver (dipsy) 80 back. Fish came on Mongolian beef moonshine behind chinook diver 100 ft back 6# laker.

    At night we did a little better 5/5. Live wire SD was hot on a slide diver 130 back picked up 16# and 8#king and 8# laker. Also picked up a shaker on 100 Cu purple spoon and a laker on life is good SD 300 Cu. Took fish between 55-110 fow little north of the pier.

    Beautiful day on the water :)


  3. Click this link to watch a video of our 2014 salmon hits that we caught on video. At some points the quality of the video is bad but thought you all would enjoy it :)

  4. Hi everyone, I'm looking to upgrade some of my old reels and I am wondering what are the best reels in the $50-100 price range. I obviously cant afford any tekotas so what do you recommend? I have heard a lot about the okuma convectors. Does anyone have anything they like/dislike about those? or is there a better option than the convectors? The reasons I am upgrading is mostly because of the poor drags on the older reels. Its hard to get the line to start coming off the reel but when it does start it rips off too easily.

    Also, though not as much of a concern to me, is rods. Does anyone have any recommendations on the best rod for the money? To me rods really don't seem like that big of an issue as long as they aren't to flimsy, but maybe others think differently.

    Any advice or recommendations are appreciated! Thanks!
