  1. Mike, Unless something changes for me by the end of the week I may not make the Saturday event. I'm leaving Thursday for Oregon on business and won't be landing in Detroit until Friday night around 10:00pm. It is a 3.5 hour drive for me after I get home. I won't really know until Thursday night late or Friday morning if we are leaving early from Oregon. I will be there Saturday afternoon to be in place for the Sunday event. If you can get someone to take my place any buy the lure package from me that would be great. I may be able to send someone in my place. Let me know.
  2. I've never run a Slasher before. Which end goes to the front (toward the rod)? I'm looking forward to this event. See you Saturday.
  3. I talked to Northern King on Monday. I gave them a recap of the tournament and asked them about the hooks on their lures. The hooks they use are VMC, Cone Cut hooks, Size 1.
  4. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- First, thank you Northern King for sponsoring this event. Over 810 pounds of fish were weighed in, with all the other fish that were caught and not weighed in we had to be close to 1,000 pounds. After lure distribution in the parking lot, we were on the water around 4:45am, cleared the pier heads and slowly made it out and set down in 75 FOW and set the first line around 5:10am. First indication that there was fish in the lake interested in our offerings didn't come until 6:30ish. Big rip on a dipsy, blue bubble blue fly, no one home by the time we got to the rod. Fished around 80 FOW with a surface temp of 69, had the Depth Raider on a rigger set at 65 reading 66 degrees. Headed N/NW to find colder water. I kept the probe down and around 120 FOW it started to cool off, at 140 FOW I had 49 degrees on the probe. We fished from 140-180 FOW and started hitting fish. Riggers set at 65 and 75. Slider on the 65 rigger hit, small king. Full core with a 4 oz snap weight, lemon ice ripped, REAL NICE King, until he ran into the wire diver......bye bye fish, did keep the spoon but had to retie the mono leader that was chewed up. Wire diver was next, 200 back, white dodger green fly, nice king. Full core with 2oz snap weight small king. Took the wire diver out because it was more hastle than it was worth and replaced it with a PowerPro diver, same rig, set at 175 popped a small king. 21" Laker on the Fullcore/2oz program. Around 10:30am white dodger-green fly combo picks up a 13 pound steelhead on the troll back in. Way to finish!

  11. Fished Friday night and Saturday morning, slow but we did manage a few. Friday PM: Launched about 5:30pm and went straight to 180 FOW based on a report, the entire lake was flat as a pancake. Set up 8 rods and trolled to 220 without a hit. Turned around and trolled back toward shore, and picked up a small King on a 10 color in 170 FOW, NBK, then the 5 color went twice, again one King one Coho, both on a spoon but I can't remember what it was. Didn't mark much of anything on the graph but the best marks I did have were in 160-170 FOW. Surface temp was in the mid 60's. We went 3/3 Saturday AM: Launched at 5:30am and headed right back to 160 FOW. Marking fish 40-120 down. First rod to go, and it took a while, was the 5 color, small Steelhead, on a small Moonshine Blue Lemon. While we were bringing in that fish, another small King hit a small Flounder Pounder slider on a downrigger. Biggest fish of the day hit the 5 color again, about a 6 pound King. Next to go was a White/Glow SD and White/Glow fly, small King. The 10 color went next, shaker, it was released. The lake was as calm as Friday. Surface temp was 55-58 degrees. Got some pics of a great sunrise. Little to no radio chatter because of the tournament I think. It sounded like we did better than most and I was not impressed with the size of the fish. Where are the big Kings? I REALLY need to hear the drag scream and feel the pull of something with shoulders.
