Sun morn the radio was much more pleasant to listen to....a lot of arguing Sat......some nice people out there Sun....set lines where we left off sat and had a newbie hooked up quickly ....had quite a fight while a couple trolled beside us and watched ....once it was netted they were cheering as much as we were....:lol: We stayed in 140fow and went 3 for 5 and some knock offs ...... All but the first fish was on a blue uv on a swr which I just made up before this trip.....thanks to the guys on here.....how many of those do I dare run at one time, it worked for me. :thumb: One fish on a glow spoon. Cleaned all up and deep fried some yum..... hopefully be back soon. Love seeing that rod go off.

Nice job Chuck.

I don't run the swr very often - in fact I've not tried it in quite some time because the fish have been coming on standard stuff.

BUT, if I do run it I would suggest only one down the chute.

With the currents we have you really don't want too much stuff hanging that long down there.

Just my opinion.

I learned what Mark said the hard way this weekend. I ran mine for the first time, and with only the one swr down and the other rigger, I still managed to create quite the mess.

Although, I made the mistake of having my non swr rigger being the deepest set. So, I think that's where I went wrong.

      Didn't get out until 9AM but ended up with a nice king at 19 pounds, 30 FOW just south of the pier.  Downrigger on Fintstone ugly coyote.  Nice see the king in the area this time of year. I know another guy who also caught a 20 pound king this morning in about the same water.  Fishon...

      Went out for one final trip this morning. Weather was absolutely perfect as was the water. Dropped lines at 250 and started marking fish immediately.   caught a small laker in 300 FOW so started heading north. zigzagged around from 300 back into 250 then back out to 350 marking good fish and more bait balls than I have seen all year. Fish were anywhere from 50’ down to 100’. Only caught one coho through all that and then a steelhead when pulling lines at noon.   All fish caught on d

      Nothing like last Saturday for me. Set lines in 130 and headed NW marking a decent amount of fish out to 170. Picked up one greaser on a high dipsy 180 back with a blue green spinny and rapture green fern fly. That is all she wrote. . Spent the next three hours going into 90 and back out to 200 without even a mark. after pulling lines we went into 60 foot of water and had a ton of marks laying on bottom. We deployed dipsys and dragged them right along the bottom for another hou
