    The online stuff works well too! Much easier that's for sure. Familiar Bite makes very good strips, sometimes I even re freeze them and use them again. Just don't spend money on Dreamweaver strips, they use ballyhoo and it just isn't the same in any aspect. Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk

    At least there's been quite a few steelhead around this year. I don't get it, one of the best springs ever and then they vanish completely! I know they'll be back soon but it certainly seems like it's getting worse before it gets better. Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk

    Looks like you got a couple steelhead there. You can tell by the white mouths, circular rounded head and the straight non forked tail. Nice fish, thanks for the report! Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk
  4. Tough day, sometimes you just gotta be thankful for trout. We went 10/11 fishing 90-110 fow just north of spyglass mostly. All trout. Only had one silver bite all morning and it really was a pig. I don't think I've heard a dipsy rod scream like that before, but only for a second because he broke the fly leader. 400 Cu mtn dew spinny/yellow bead mirage fly 1/1 300 Cu UV mixed veggie spinny/proctologist fly 1/1 High diver back 140 net minders showtime spinny/ Blue bubble fly 0/1 (silver) Rigger bottom UV frog spinny/ watermellon spin n glo 3/3 Rigger bottom UV frog spinny/pink dot spn n glo 5/5 Trout are real small this year, all about 3 lbs for us all year. Anybody find any silvers today? Awfully quiet on the radio! Sent from my LGL62VL using Tapatalk

  7. Haven't posted on here in a while. Have been putting my reports on another site I'm sure you are all familiar with, but I hope to be consistent with this one as well. Sometimes after you get up at 4:30 and fish all day it's hard to sit down and write a report! Well anyway, slow for us. We went north out of PS to 80 FOW hoping to put at least a couple silver in the box early. We ended 3/3. Rigger went right off the bat at 60 with the smallest toss back shaker I've ever caught. Then went 10 minutes later with a nice 9 lb steel. The set up was an 8" fish scale paddle with a uv arctic blast fly. Trolled around forever and then finally had the 200 Cu go in 140 fow with a 7-8 lb brown!! Spoon was a mag moonshine yellow submarine. That was all she wrote. Brown was unclipped too!!

  9. I haven't been out yet myself but the charters are slamming lake trout as always. Seems like they were getting coho and kings inshore a couple weeks ago but that seems to have died. Should be another weekend and we'll be hammering them like St Joe right now.
  10. Glad you got something to show for the effort. Thanks for the heads up about the dredge.

    I've also found recently that most of my fish even in July and august Dont come on flies so much. As we get further in the year I'll switch to a spoon, plug and meat program and generally won't run as many flies.

    I agree on the spoon bite. This was really the first trip of the year where flies were productive enough to be left in the water. The general rule of thumb is to have the fly leaders 3 times the length of your flasher. So in the case of this trip, 24 inches from the end spindoctor swivel to the treble hook of the fly. With 11" paddles 33" leaders and so on.
  14. PS 5/29 AM Went 14/15 all kings. stayed in about 140 FOW south trolling north and south. The bite was hot and heavy right away as we had most of our fish in the first hour or so. It got pretty quiet as the sun came up all the way. Blue bubble flasher/ fly diver 160 1/1 rigger down 60 UV mixed veggie SD /proctologist 5/5 rigger down 40 hawg wild SD/ proctologist 3/3 225 Cu UV Jordo 1/1 225 Cu moon shine green shorts 2/3 (caught a fish on this as I was letting out the copper with only about 30 feet of it out !?!?!) wire diver at 95 fat Nancy SD/proctologist 2/2
  15. PS 5/27 PM 6/8 out of port sheldon all kings. Started in 90 FOW south trolling SW. Took a double in about 120 dipsy back 110 glow green dot SD and a proctologist fly as well as the rigger down 65 SS Hello Darlin. Dipsy got into EVERY line on the starboard side... that fish in particular is going to taste real good! rigger down 65 Hello Darlin went again in 130 but spit the hook at the back of the boat. After a big lull the 175 Cu SS Hawg Wild was looking a little fishy so we cranked it in and to our surprise a 6 or 7 lb king on it. Never took drag never really noticeably pulled the board back and never put up a fight. Story of the night came next when I noticed the starboard rigger thumping away with my brother in the same corner taking a whizz. He didn't see it and I nearly tackled him to grab it. (We always joke that it's gonna happen and it finally did!) 80 feet down mod blue dolphin. 175 Cu hawg wild went again and this time took some drag, turned out to be a smaller fish than the lazy one. 300 Cu with a mag blue dolphin came in clutch later in the game with a decent king as it always seems to do. And to end on a negative note we lost another on the rigger down 80 mod blue dolphin. Beautiful night on the water!
