  2. Here's a pic of my rig at the Bar this year. Courtesy of Erby Joe. Thanks Erin.
  3. I'll be aboard with Billy V
  4. Here's an odd speciman we caught on our trip last week. Maybe from a prior hook injury? We caught another one a few days later that was very similar.
  5. Way to go Yankee fishing team!!
  6. Another great trip out west this year. We were fortunate that wind and waves permitted us to fish each day. The trip did not start off with a bang. The first day we fished near the red can but didn't get a program going. Took a few smaller fish, lost one good rip. Surface temps were 46 degrees. The next few days we fished in Canadian waters as far west as 14 miles from the river and got into plenty of kings. Could not get my divers going and all the fish were taken on spoons off the riggers. After a good bite Sat morning in Canadian waters, things dried up for us and we trolled east towards the Bar. Our screen looked great and we had a good afternoon bite in the 130' range near the red can. Sun, Mon, Tues, we had great fishing all around the bar and I had most of my program working except for my highest rigger. My center rigger was usually 90-95 down and had R&R grape/silver mupped the whole trip. That setup pulled up a ton of fish for us. R&R lemon/lime, blue/grape blk dots, and watermelon were also good on my next higher rigger which was usually at 70-80 down. Attomik's "Supercrazy" Spin Dr. with my "Killer" fly and the "Showtime" Spin Dr. with my "showtime" fly were good on the divers out 170'-220' on 2 settings. Wed and Thurs were tougher days. Still hit double digits both days but only had a couple up to 17 lbs. On Thurs afternoon surface temps were 61 degrees and around 50 degrees at the ball 50 down. Our highlight of the trip was a fat 27 lber that my Dad (the "Bull") hauled in on Monday. It came on the deep rigger with that hot,hot R&R grape/silver mupp rig. Enjoyed talking with Erby Joe and Strike 3 during our trip. Here's some pics: "Strike 3" had a fun day Erby Joe hooked up The "Professor" hooked up.We were hooked up too. Doug with a nice one "Showtime" combo Nice steelie "Mess with the Bull and you'll get the horn!!" The 27 lber
  7. Gray, Way to go. Glad you had good trip and banged some fish. I was really chompin at the bit on Fri after I saw your report from Unkeljim. We're leaving on Tues. night and will fish for 7 days.
  8. Erin, I run my wire rods all season.
  9. Hey Nick , Thanks for the reports...good or bad. Was supposed to be up there to right now but we postponed a week. Not an option to postpone again so we will be up there on Sat. Eric
  10. Erin, 20 lb Big Game on my main lines. 20 lb P-Line flouroclear for leaders.
  11. I run them all season. Here's my Dad with a spring king caught on a dodger /fly combo:
  12. Magna, I've rescheduled my trip. Will be up there the 12th-20th. I will probably give Butch a call next week though.
  13. Way to go Bill, lots of fish slime on the new ride!! Wish I could have been out this weekend.
  14. Magna, We are scheduled to leave May 4th. That's good news Bill, good luck to you with it.
  15. Great day of fishing. Catching was a little slow. Ended up 6 for 9 with biggest 6 lbs. 3 1/4" R&R spoons with 85'-95' leads on the rigs and sticks off the boards were about even. Did not have anything that got bit more than once. Most important was no issues with the boat after all the work that was done on it this winter! A successful splashdown. Jr. got some training pullin boards today.
  16. Landshark, check out this link http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templ ... hasJS=true I had used this one on my 20 ftr and it worked great.
  17. Everything was for the boat this year. -new floor -new vinyl -new fuel lines -and lots of other little things and still didn't get everything done that I wanted to
  18. Rick, I'll be trailering each day, so it could be the river or Wilson. Soup and sandwiches in the tent each night does get old .
  19. YT, I'll be there May 5-13 and fishing hard every day that conditions allow.
  20. Hey Bill, there is a couple coming your way.
  21. Here's a new fly pattern I came up with to run with my new "super crazy" custom Attomik spin doc. We'll see how it works out in a month. Can't wait!!
  22. In my opinion, I would suggest you make sure the prop on the kicker will be below the bottom of the hull when deployed. If not you will most likely experience cavitation in rougher conditions. Eric
