  1. So what lengths should I run for a fly flasher behind the dipsy?? One of the Howie Fly's i bought has a leader built in an it's right around 28". So, I am assuming that 28" from the bottom swivel to the tip of the hook on the fly is what I need. Howie fly is out of Sturgeon Bay so im assuming this is what the GL Salmon are looking for. Sound about right?
  2. My friends keep saying that I need to name my boat. Right now, I have two names in mind. #1 My Wife. This way I can tell everyone how much I like My Wife. How I try to take My Wife out every weekend, and how relaxing a trip with My Wife is.... lol #2 Salmonvoid. Lol... because it's Void of all Salmon-oid. Lol
  3. One of the clip/swivel things. I don't know the name of it but half is a swivel the other half is a loop that wraps around itself. So you start the spoon hole on it and work it around 1 turn so it seats down into the bigger loop.
  4. Here is what I'm running .... (that doesn't work!) (IMAGE ATTACHED)
  5. Hi was out again today in Algoma from 6a to 10a and didn't get a bite. I lurked anywhere from 80 to 130 FOW. I ran spoons off the dipsy, pushed the throttle up as suggested and worked the line out slowly as the day went on. Still, nothing. Running as mentioned above, the 40# braid to #1 dipsy. The leader is a total of 8ft with a 12" snubber included coming off the dipsy to the spoons. I run a variety of sizes, including ProFoils as well as ProFoil magnums. With more throttle, the GPS(Garmin Nuvi for cars) was reading 3.5mph to 5.2mph and fish finder was similar but slower by .2 or so depending on direction. Before I would be in the 2.5-3.5mph range at just out of neutral. So I ran into the waves today which were going SW to NE. To get some more speed I ran with them as well. I also fished in the ditch both running directly at the sun and away from.... still nothing. Im not ready to give up, but I'm getting discouraged. And I found fish, just didn't find bites.
  6. What should the spoons look like going through the water at the correct speed? What should a flasher/fly combo look like going through the water? I have being doing some research and it appears you want the spoons to do for lack of a better term, some bobbing and weaving. So it's going through the water and not really spinning per say, but darting back and forth with the hook side almost flicking up and down. And I missed it before, but I am using #1 Dispy Divers.
  7. Tell me more about the flys and meat rigs. Again, I'm a novice so I have only seen spoons and flasher/fly run. I have no idea how to set the others up or what kind of meat to run. I'm open suggestions!! I run the main #40 braid to the dipsey. Then I have a rod length of #30 fluorocarbon and 12" snubber combined, so it's roughly 8'6" from Dipsey to spoon. And I would love to run some different setups, but I have only TWO RODS/LINES. I need to get some fish running off of these before I get crazy and start buying more rods or copper lines. Etc. But I do appreciate the suggestions.
  8. I have one flasher fly combo.... The standard Howie fly and a "Dragon Slayer" flasher. When I was out with Kinns last fall, all the hits came on it, so that the first, and only, one I have at this point.
  9. Really!?!?! That's the one thing I did NOT expect to hear. I have been trying to slow the boat down, not speed it up. I have been fishing in anything from 90 to 200ft. The latest DNR fishing report says the bite was 120-300ft of water and 60-80ft down... I so kept into the 150ft range. Thank you... Appreciate the info. Excellent to know what the GPS vs. In water lure speeds are. Thanks for the info. At about 4:45 the dipseys were around 130ft of line out and I work them down and up through day by feeding more line. I have been doing some reading in the past and know there are a lot of what people are referring to as "Suicide Kings" that will some out of deeper water and slam the lures in the shallows. Plus, I think all fish would prefer to come up to hit rather than dive down... So, you are all thinking I need MORE speed?
  10. I need some help guys. I am a novice when it comes to running my own boat for Salmon. I have been out on Kinns Sport Fishing and Reel Action and needless to say I paid attention and caught some fish. I'm trying to do that now on my own boat, and I can't seem to get any bites when others are reeling them in. What am I doing wrong? By all reports, the bite was on out of Algoma which I went out of today at 4:00am I'm running a Mid 90's Lund 16ft Tyee II with a 100hp Mariner outboard. I don't have a fishhawk or anything similar to get the actual in water lure speed, but per a GPS with the boat just in gear it runs around 2.5-3.0MPH. Thinking his was too fast, I have tried a 36" drag bag off the side which per GPS slows me down to 1.5-2.0MPH. I don't have any down riggers but I have two Dipseys set at 3 to dive left and right of each side of the boat. They're the medium sized ones and I have given them a fair amount of line to get them down. I have run them out 200-225ft at times to get down. (40# braid) I am running spoons of various size and color and no luck. They are hooked onto 30# test fluorocarbon leader which is about 8ft long. That's hooked to a 12" snubber, which is hooked to the dipsy divers. The main line I'm using is Cabelas brand RipCord in 40# test. What is the new guy doing wrong??? I have probably 24hrs in the boat (3-4 different trips/different days) with NO bites. It's getting really frustrating. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
