    Look at the Hummingbird Helix series. I changed over from Lowrance to Humminbird two years ago and it was the smartest thing I have done in years. My Humminbird Helix 10 sees everything and you will wish you had gotten rid of your Lowrance years ago. Theres no comparison. And no, I don't work for Humminbird. LOL

    Sorry for the lack of reports. While I was up there I stopped fishing as my good friend, fishing guide Kevin Davis passed away from a long battle with cancer. It has shaken me to the core. So to answer the above questions, the lake did flip while were there on Tuesday. Temp was 45 degrees down 40 feet. We did fish the inside water and found mature kings and browns in 40' of water. After 2.5 days of fishing we boated 12 kings and 8 Browns and missed a bunch more. All the Kings we caught were cookie cutter 18-20 pounders. Nothing big. Meat was on fire for the Kings and Stingers in natural colors took the Browns and 2 kings. Down speed on the meat was nothing faster than 2.3. I left today and I know many of the charter boats boxed out for kings this morning in 2 hours. Waves were to big for us to fish. The big west wind has blown the mother load of kings into the Oswego area. You guys fishing this weekend should have an awesome trip. Atommik Stud fly meat rig, Atommik hammer time meat rig and the cannon ball meat rig were all working good. Also took a couple shots on the hammer live lime fly and glow stud fly behind a white green dot spinny. Good luck guys this weekend!!!

    Unfortunately We are leaving Friday We leave earlier on Thursday. This big blow coming tonight may last through Thursday. Now. Fishing was really good for us last evening as we boxed out in 400 feet of water. Meat was the ticket. This morning we got blown off early as we had 20 + mph off shore winds We had 41 degrees water down 60 feet.

    Out today at 05:30. Weather forecast was wrong. Sustained winds 15 to 20 south east. Out In 300 feet of water we had 3 footers with occasional 4’s throw. In. To one 20 pound king on a flasher fly. Got tired of being beat up and went in and caught and released a doz. Browns. Ack out this afternoon. Weather looks bad for the next 2 days.

    Nice!! Headed up to fish Sunday to Friday. Not sure where to put the boat, either out of Mexico or Oswego. It will depend on this weeks reports. Its been weird not seeing many reports of squadrons of staging kings. Maybe to much warm water yet??

    Targeting Coho

    Best luck I have had with them this time of the year is fish just above the thermal cline. Colorful spoons work best.

    8/2 out of fairhaven

    We also ran into lots of Steelies out in 250 to 350 feet of water it was crazy last evening. I put one rigger with a light weight rod out just for them. We landed nothing big. Most around 3 or 5 pounds but we’re dun to catch and release. We also landed a 15 pound coho with the rod that was up high!! 😃

    I have a helix 10. Turn up your sensitivity and turn on your switch fire to max.
  14. Fishing conditions have changed big time. The warm water is back with a 74 degree surface temp. Fishing is ok from 200 to 400 feet. 52 degree water at 85 feet down. Lots of small kings in the teens with a few adults mixed in. Both atommik flies and meat have been working. Lots of big marks on the sonar down 200 feet. Can’t get them to go yet but I’m assuming they are big kings.
