  1. Passed on this nice 8 point this morning. Something told me not to take the shot:)
  2. Tried for browns twice last week. Tons of little guys this year, 2-3 lb. Twice on Saturday we had two fish on same rod with cheaters. Really good to see. These fish would be last years stockies which I witnessed being decimated by cormorants and fisherman. Apparently quite a few made it through the gauntlet. Also, caught 3, 6-8 inch kings on Sat and a couple the week before which is equally good news. I believe these kings would be this springs stockers. All fish released unharmed. Lite bite slide diver is nice for these little guys as it actually trips the release.
  3. Not uncommon for salmon to stray. On the pacific coast, studies have shown up to 10% of a salmon population will stray up to 100 miles of their native trib. They theorize that this is a life strategy in that if their is a catastrophe at the home trib, the species can repopulate elsewhere.
  4. King Davy, Interesting on replacing domestics with more browns. Do you know how many more browns will be stocked? Although it doesn’t really matter if they stock them on a clear, calm day with cormorants around.
  5. Yes saw that. Lake rose 2.8 inch in July and now they have increased outflow. We need it to rise a foot+
  6. I image this rain is what the doctor ordered to help with water level. Weatherman saying top 10 wettest July in history.
  7. Just getting around to rigging this. Bought 65lb power pro. Is 300 yds of 65lb enough to fill a standard size reel I.e daiwa saltist 30? Or do I need to add some backing? been 15 years since I’ve rigged a slide diver:)
  8. Most spawn at age 3, some at 2 and some at 4, and some small males at 1. I don’t think they live past age 4 in L.O. Your 4 year olds are going to be the 30 plus pound fish most likely. All die after spawning.
  9. UNREEL. Got gas at Sutters a couple weeks ago and sucked up weeds. Starboard overheated on the way out. Clean my sea cocks after every trip now. Warning to everybody else. My marina is low but at least no weeds. Terrible.
  10. Does any body know what the plan is for the rest of the Summer? Are they trying to raise lake levels? Is water still going down? I’d image we would need a ton of rain right now to have any significant impact. Holding more water back is likely the only way to try and increase levels which is still a long, slow process. I’m already sucking up mud at the marina. Any lower and I’m in trouble.
  11. Like the 5.0s. Get on plane fine and don’t have to use bags to slow down enough to troll. Talked to guys with same boat with the 5.7s and they have to use bags. Looks like new valves and gasket is all I need. I think they are going to refurb the heads too. Cylinders and everything are in good shape. I really appreciate all the feedback.
  12. Looks like I may be headed towards a rebuild/remanufactured on my starboard engine. Mechanic recommends Jasper. Reviews are all over the place. Some say they used to have a lot of problems but have become much better in the past few years. Anybody have any recent experience with Jasper? Any other recommendations? Thanks in advance.
