  1. Help with dipsys and releases.

    How many pounds is your rigger ball?
  2. Skunk reports are the hardest to write. I do appreciate them greatly. Thank you.
  3. WILD King Salmon

    I release a lot of fish. I make judgement though based on how active the fish is once I caught it. How long the fight took. How much warm water is there. Right now there is cold water not very far down. I'd release a fish in a heartbeat in this. Sometimes unfortunately I just feed the seagulls. If someone is with me that eats fish. I'm happy to help fill his freezer. About 50 seconds into this video they release a fish. They tow it until it looks healthy. Once it looks good, they let it go. You could also do this method and if its dead. Just reach over cut its gills. bleed it and stick it in the cooler 5 minutes later.

    Purchase the wild caught. Its better for the local fisheries. Those farms bring in diseases.
  5. Fished SH tonight. That was the only spoon we could get to work tonight. Without your report. We would have have probably skunked! Thank you!
  6. Thanks for the report. It was definitely a tough night out there. We set lines in 55. Trolled out to 145. Caught 1 small king in 125. We went towards the south. We didn't mark anything until 100 fow. I tried talking on the radio but something is messed up & I forgot the handheld. Downrigger released 3-4 times today & we missed it. All the action was on moonshine moonshine. Thanks to ed's report earlier for getting me to pull that one out of the box.
  7. Thanks for the report. Especially the part about the marks in the channel.
  8. Thanks for the report Is the moonshine moonshine the 4 black dotted spoon?

  14. SH 8/14 pm Left the dock at 2pm. Heard 150-160 were good. They were not good. Didn't catch a fish until 5:30. We started marking fish as we went in from 140. Best depth was 122. I had a new crew. Every rod went off at least once. copper 150-200-225-250-275-300 2 downriggers set at 85 and 115 and a slide diver. I had my slide diver bouncing bottom at 125. When we came into shallow water we reeled it in a few feet. I think it was around 275 out. I got that big ring & weight kit. If you like lakers go 2.2 If you don't like lakers. Go faster. went 8-15. 4 lakers 2 coho 1 steelhead 1 king (not a big one)(Where are they?) got back to the launch a little more than hour after sunset. Mixed veggies & mountain dew spin doctor stood out. I can't catch a fish at all going north or west or north west. All my fish come from east or south or southeast. If anyone knows what i'm doing wrong. I am all ears.
