  1. Solo trip yesterday in the fog, put lines down at 6pm in 140FOW on an West troll. Took my first king right away, continued to work out to 160FOW when I hit a small band of bait fish. It was easy from there. Limited out with 4 Kings/ 1 Coho, 3 kings came unbuttoned and one broke off. Magnum spoons took all the fish. This king fishing is unreal! I can't wait for the end of July/ early August. Better get the 30lb mono out boys.......
  2. East not West, sorry.
  3. Decided to head off shore yesterday afternoon out of GH starting in 220FOW on a West troll. I didn't take my first hit until 160 FOW, by the time I hit 140 FOW I had my one man limit of coho. Hottest bait was a chrome paddle and aqua fly down 80' on the rigger taking 4/5. Good luck out there guys. I think the action is about to pick up! If the water temp would just creep up a few more degrees.
  4. GH - 8/20 AM 4/5 this morning on my first solo trip out of my new to me boat. 3 Coho (#6-9) 1 #10 King 175FOW 80-110' down Blue seemed to be what they where after. Flasher/ fly and spoons. I was hopeful to see some more 4yr olds this morning. What are your thoughts of this year's run? With the warm water and low flow rates from the Grand push the run back a few more weeks? When do you predict we'll see some staging in numbers out of GH? Thanks and good luck!

    Meat Rigs?

    I have also seen others place swivels behind each teaser to both reduce line twist and make adjusting the tail leader quick and easy.

    Meat Rigs?

    Big Weenie seems to be the brand of choice for many meat anglers. Thanks for the info. one more thing though. Do you ever lengthen the lead from the last teaser to the meat head? I have been advised it should be slightly longer than the teaser-to-teaser length.

    Meat Rigs?

    Meat Rigs? Meat rigs? What's your favorite rig? Type of meat? Leader length? Teaser (tinsil/ squid)? Best attractors (flasher)? New to the meat game and have had limited success just want to see what's working for others. I appreciate the advise!

  14. 9/14 today out of Whitehall with a strong start but bite seemed to slow after 9am. Best depth was 120-140FOW E/W troll 2.8 gps. Everything fired at one point or another from 5 color to a rigger at 88', no real pattern. Best bait was a 11" white paddle and homemade white fly (glow/ UV). Lots of 1-2yr old Kings with the occasional 3yr old. Have the 3-4yr old Kings moved North? Regardless another great trip. This was the first trip of the year we haven't limited out. Hopefully the fishing stays good. Anybody have any luck fishing the slicks out deep? Stealhead should start showing up in good numbers soon. Good luck to all and keep the reports coming!
