HI

I started fishing when I was given a 1969 Star-craft Holiday from the in-laws. It was seating wide open at the farm for 8 years. Boy, they were happy to get rid of it. It took me weeks to clean it. I redid the floor, seats, carpet and transom. And the motor fired right up. I was excited and happy. Since then, I did some PM on the motor and it runs like a champ. We been fishing the local lakes and it has been a wonderful experience. But now, it is itching me to start fishing for salmon on the big lake. The in-laws had couple manual down-riggers that I got later and I been practicing on Gull lake and I been getting some northern pike, but no salmon or trout.

So here I am, begging for some advice of what I need, what the boat needs to be equipped with for the big lake, and the personal experience for the big lake.

Welcome aboard.

Stick with the two riggers, and add 2 diver poles, and 2 core/copper poles.

Do you have any friends that fish the big lake tat can take you out?

Nailer, I do not have any friends for the big lake. I would love to get on board with an experienced fisherman to learn the basic set-up.

I would agree with Ken, this would be a pretty good starting point. Take a look around , there is a wealth of knowledge on this site. If you have any questions don't be afraid to ask, there are lots of helpful guys here that would be willing to give you a few pointers.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I am getting all of information I need to get the boat ready for the big lake for next year. I would still like to get out on lake with somebody who is willing to teach me salmon fishing 101.

So far on my list:

1. GPS / Fish finder

2. Fixed mount radio

3. Fire extinguisher

4. Flood lights for the back of the boat.

5. Spot light

6. Second battery

Thanks again. :thumb:

Welcome Mazen! I know that I would gladly take you along if you are looking for a ride, I'm just not sure when I will be heading out again this year, if at all. If not, there are other (probably better) fishermen on this site that might have room for you. If I do make it out I will let you know. Good luck on the new hobby. I started out fishing with some of the guys on this site and it helped me out a lot, it is a great way to learn.
