  1. Ran north a few miles and set up in 125FOW with LOTS of marks right at the thermocline. Went 8/10 with 6 Lakers and 2 steelhead all of which had stomachs full of alewives. No kings?!!?! A wire diver with blue bubble spinny and blue bubble fly took 7/8 lakers back 120-140. High divers and short cores with spoons took the steel. Those kings can come back anytime now...

    Holland 6-28 pm

    Nice report. Just curious.... what brand meat rigs do you run? Do you use the Dreamweaver stripes or make your own from blue label. Went 4/4 last night out of PS. 2 bows, 1 laker, 1 king. LOTS OF BAIT!
  3. Thought I'd break the JUNE radio silence...... Did a hot lap out to 130FOW and back with my youngest boy Monday evening. We hit a nice steelhead on a west troll (Mixed Veggy, 45' down, 120FOW), made the turn East and hit a laker (chrome flasher/ Oceana UV Laser fly, wire slide diver #2 setting, 200' back,105FOW). First trip of the year without a salmon. Those kings can make their way over from Wisconsin any time now.

    Slide divers breaking line

    NO issues here with Slide Divers, i run a hi and lo using wire and braid. 30# braid on the hi and a 25' lead of 50# braid on the lo to my wire. I do use the surgical tubing not the spring provided in the accessory kit. Those babies are NOT cheap hopefully you find the root cause soon!
  5. Lost an Off Shore Planner board that morning out of GH. It would have been a LEFT side board with the orange clip in front for mono not braid backer. If that's it I sure would be appreciative. I have some custom spin doctors also as a finders fee.
  6. 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.......
  7. East not West, sorry.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!

    7/29 Tournaments?

    Steve (president) will have details posted this week but also told me at least one Holland stealheader must be on the boat. I was hopeful it was an open tournament.....
