  1. Took my brother in-law out this morning. First trip this year. Set lines about 8, Trolled from just S of piers N from 20 to 30 fow nothing. Turned around on S troll back to piers, nothing! Must have been 11: or so when we turned out to see if we could find a fish deeper. 11:35 I had just switched out a Dr to, on a whim, an orange/ pink glow Wonder Bread and it goes off. Nice little Laker to get rid of the skunk, 36 dwn, 60 fow, Dan turned SW and 15 minutes later the inside Dr goes. ( I had changed it over to the same) big fish ( guessing over 15# as her tail rolled up in the cooler) 39 dwn, 62 fow, 2.2 GPS spd. Looped through the same waypoint picked up another dandy on the same rod and settings as the first. Beautiful morning and had a great day! Hope you all did too!

    Hey fellas, looking for some advice on down temp and speed Electronics. I have a Duo-temp unit that went bad, had the Walker repair guy put a new end probe on and traded out the display for a rebuilt unit. Lasted about a season then started the same crap, give a temp for a while then start jumping all over, again. Don't get out more than a dozen times a season so bang for buck matters. Thanks for your help!
  3. If still available, I'll take both. Thanks, Andy

    Grey fatty layer between meat and skin(salmon)

    I keep a heavy stringer tied to the side (forward, out of the way) to bleed them out. If possible I keep them awake (no bonking on the head) slit one gill and they bleed out completely. Much less messy to filet. Skin, remove lateral line, grill, broil, bake, I don't care! If you don't enjoy this fish... Eat venison! Anything that turns brown while cooking scrape off, it's not good for you! Remember mercury? Those grill mats on those infomercials actually work pretty well.

    Had a similar experience Sunday morning myself. Fished out of Saugatuck, set lines just before sun up, N. of piers, S troll. Fished 90' -105' w/ good marks at 60-65. Made several passes N.&S. Had a newbie on board that even tried chumming something up. Not a bite! Headed E. for a little bit after taking a couple waves over the bow of my 18 footer and pulled lines and surfed our way back w nothing but ice in the box. Heard someone on the radio say they had a nice Coho in the box.
