  1. St Joe 9-20,21

    I come from the Kokomo Indiana area to fish so I prob won't head any further north. Does anyone know anything about Michigan City? I have never been there. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  2. Went out on 9-20 sun up to sun down, and today from sun up until noon. I fished from 80-150 and only caught lakers. 120 was the only place I caught fish, and all were under 5 pounds. I had luck with glow dolphins and a coyote spoon. I couldn't even get a bump on flies/flashers. Caught about ten and most were so small they wouldn't trip the riggers.

  4. Help with dipsys and releases.

    No I placed them horizontal and put the dipsys out first before the riggers. I did let them out under the pressure with drag. I'm sure it was probably due to not having a driver while deploying the dipsys. The currents were pretty strong and turned me all over the place.

  5. Help with dipsys and releases.

    They were set at 2.5 left on the port side of the boat. I would post a picture but I took the boat apart already. I live in central Indiana and it's primarily my bass boat. It's a ranger vs 1780 with triple trees off the side and riggers directly behind them. The riggers are penn fathom master 625s. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  6. Help with dipsys and releases.

    Ok I will try those releases. It's hard to drive a small boat and rig stuff on your own. I need to bring a helper with me. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  7. I am new to fishing the big lake. I went out today and caught three fish about five pounds each. Question...I bought cannon releases that work by pressure. On the second setting the lure will work its way out on its own. On the third setting none of the three fish tripped the release. Did I just get in that window where my release won't work? What is a good quality release that's reliable? Second I'm about to toss my magnum dipsys. Every time I attempted to use one it tangles around my rigger. I run the dipsy on 2.5 to the left and it still gets in to my rigger. I place the dipsy out first like I believe you are supposed to do. The only thing I can figure is that it's my poor driving, weaving like a drunk that's doing it. What should I do? Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  8. I went 3 for 3 this morning. Two lakers and one king. All on the small side. All in 140 feet of water. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  9. I'm in st joe right now. I just caught a small king in 140 at 90 feet deep. I was using a black and silver glow spoon. Good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  10. I'm going to go back out in the morning where do you guys think I should start depth wise? I didn't see many fish at 120 and none in the 80 range. Hopefully the waves will settle down. Is there actually a good reliable wave forecast ? Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  11. I've been out all day and the only thing I have to show for it is seasickness Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman

  13. Perfect thank you Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  14. First off I'm new here and taking my first trip to the big lake Monday. I've fished it before but not on my own. Where should I start out (depth direction from harbor) I have the boat and gear to do whatever just need a little help from the pros. I don't care what I catch and would consider one fish this rookies victory. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
