  1. After hearing how big the waves were from people that got blew off, we decided to give it a try. Unfortunately we were only able to fish for 2 hours due to the waves and a late start. Started in 70 ft of water and trolled west to 120 and curved back to find 100ft. Ended up 1-2 is all with both hits right around 100 fow. Heres what the two hits were on:

    1. 11 inch white glow paddle with a big weenie white poofster fly on 7 color - decent coho

    2. mountain dew spin doctor with a green squid on full core.

    Slow night with the rollers and the lack of fish, but at least we caught 1!!

  2. Over the past week I have heard about guys doing better on meat than anything else. Currently, I do not run meat because I really don't know how and if it was really needed in my arsenal. However, after the past week I am beginning to wonder if I should give it a shot. But before I go all out, I have a few questions.

    1. In your opinion, what is the best brand? And do I need to buy the flasher, fly, and meat head combo as seen on John King's website, rather than using my own flasher or spin doctor?

    2. Where or what is the best place to buy Herron strips?

    3. Can these be used in combination with spoons, flasher flies, and plugs? Because I heard these require a different speed.

    Thanks to anyone who will reply with knowledge of meat fishing. This site has been extremely helpful to novice fisherman like myself, thank you.

  3. Just wondering on different techniques for using two planer boards (or more) on one side. I know the shorter line needs to be out towards the side the furthest and the longer core or copper to the inside. However, what I don't know is how to avoid tangles when the outside one goes off. It obviously wants to run across the inside board. Just wondering if using two different types of boards will help or if there is other strategies I am unaware of. Thanks for any help.

  4. Since recent success with using planer boards, I was curious about a couple things. For one, whats the best way to clip the board so you don't lose it when you break the line (two in the past week or so).

    And also, how do you run two on one side of the boat? Is it just a matter of the amount of line you put out? On the same note, we are currently running two lead core on the planers, but would like to add two more planer boards to the mix, do you suggest investing in copper rather than more lead core so we would be running two lead core and two copper?

    Thanks for any help

  5. Left the dock at 6:00 p.m. and went to 130 FOW and started setting lines. Worked 130-150 FOW mainly getting our first around 6:45 on a dowrigger @55 feet with a magnum blue dolphin, which yeilded a 22 lb King! Then had three in a row (1 laker and two steelhead) on a 5 color with an ornage medium sized spoon. After swtiching to spoons on our riggers we had one laker and steelhead that hit a cotton candy magnum spoon @ 35 ft. We finished 5-9 with 6 of the 9 hits on the 5 color with the orange spoon. Sure enough just as the sun hit the lake we had a double (blue dolphin on rigger 55 down and the smae 5 color) and both of the fish broke the line. So there went the hot spoon a board and two nice fish. Overall, and awesome day on the lake.
