Steelhead#1's Achievements



  1. I'm sorry I didn't see this thread until now. Dan ignore these miserable folks. You fish it often enough you're able to judge when not to post reports. I've netted so many fish myself because there was nobody else fishing on the pier I was on. Only once did one of my reports blow up the pier pretty bad. I was still able to get the spot I fished the day before so my regret went away quickly. I got yelled at by tons of folks. What they didn't know was I was fishing alone the 2 previous days. Then 2 days after it was super busy the pier was empty again. So in the long term. I don't regret posting. You know the pier. You got good judgement. You should post when you want. For whitefish, most guys are gonna show up with store bought eggs and fish once or twice and never return. Its rare you get a guy who gets the proper eggs & fish it regularly. They all go back to st joe or their home pier. So its kinda hard to blow out the pier with guys when it comes to whitefish. For steelhead there is unlimited room on the beach and there is tons of room in the river. The other rivers have more steelhead so folks won't stick around unless they're super local for the most part.
  2. If one or a few of you wants to go to the harbor commission meeting. I'd love to go with. That's where all the decisions have really been made for the launch.
  3. Skunk reports are the hardest to write. I do appreciate them greatly. Thank you.
  4. 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.
  5. Purchase the wild caught. Its better for the local fisheries. Those farms bring in diseases.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Thanks for the report. Especially the part about the marks in the channel.
