  5. Just in case anyone was wondering, with the north west wind today, the temp in 140 fow from top to bottom was over 70 degrees. It was too rough to stay out and search..... Solid 3 to 5 footers with the occasional 6 thrown in..........
  6. Hans..... Are you getting out or trading up?
  7. It has not been updated in 2 days..... Not sure why.....
  8. Went out for a quick trip with my oldest son and father last night. Set up in 60 FOW, looking for browns. The down temp was 48 degrees... so we started search mode. Found great bait in 70, began marking fish in 90 fow. After 30 minutes, Tyler caught a great king on the diver- out 165. 27 lbs- his biggest so far. Set back up in 102 FOW and immediately hit a small king, a brown that was 12.7 lbs and a 22 lb king. Great night on the water.... the kings are really staging early this year
  9. After only being able to fish a few times this summer, we finally were able to hit the water and put some time in this week. Both AM and PM trips had marks and bait in shallow.... 70-125 FOW but the temp was all over the place......49 to 73 degrees on the bottom. We went East and West.... but had the same varied conditions everywhere we went.... We took fish on divers, riggers, and copper- but no real pattern.... some fish in temp, some out of temp..... flasher/fly and spoons were all taking fish...... Our biggest fish- 34.13 came down 77 feet over 82 FOW on a Finger Lakes Tackle Company mag spoon called the Black Meat Pounding Deep- super glow cup....... It was in 72 degree water and literally took less than 1 minute to reel it in, we actually thought it was about 5 lb brown based upon the way it was fighting (or lack of fighting)... when it surfaced behind the boat we were shocked to see it was a king. We were even more surprised when we saw how big she was--- a total slob.. I think she realized she was hooked after she hit the net, it took 2 of us to get it on board as it was fighting so much we thought the net was going to break......

  15. Saturday morning- headed out in the dark to get set up before the sun came up... on the way out, the screen on 60-80 fow looked good so we set up and headed east. Trolled for about 30 minutes in 75 FOW before hitting our first fish- 8 lb brown on a moonshine, down 70. Kept going east towards Watuma, and the dipsy starts screaming out line, landed a 24 lb king. From then on, it was a slow pick of kings- all on dipsy's and spin drs, drowns and lakers on spoons in the riggers. We never went deeper then 115 fow...... ended up with around 10 bites, 3 of which were decent kings in the low 20s. Sunday- the thunder sent us back to bed to sleep in. Hit the water at 8:30 AM and set up in the same area as the day before. 88 fow proved to be the best for us. We fished for 3 hours in the morning, went in for lunch and then came back out and fished until about 3 pm. Ended the day with 4 kings, all in the 20s. 3 on the divers, one came on a spoon- silverstreak black/purple. 4 lakers and 3 browns........ The water temp was all messed up. We found a pocket of colder water that was holding fish and just kept on working it....... 2.4 mph on the probe was the only speed we had a release at.......... east or west troll did not matter as long as it was 2.4...... At the depth we were fishing, the good temp was within 3 feet of the bottom. The only rigger that fired was literally in the mud....... For the few hours we fished on Sunday, it was the best day we have had this season for quality of kings. The first king we took was black, literally it looked like it had been in the creek for a week already. It's entire stomach had already turned black it was the darkest king I have ever seen in the lake. Oh- almost forgot... I also landed a 4" goby that was snagged. Surprisingly, it really did not fight very hard.
  16. We were out as well; from 4 to 7. Went 3 for 3 in 145 FOW. 2 kings came on the 500 copper off the outrigger- both were in the low 20s. the 3rd came on the deep rigger- 127 down on a super glow- mag. That one was smaller- around 10 lbs..
  17. Started off Saturday morning eastof the creek, near Watuma, fishing the 90 fow range. Had a slow pic of small fish, finally hitting one nice king in 95 fow, around 20 lbs. Fish came on the deep rigger, parked on the bottom on a black silver streak. I think we ended up with 6 or 7 in the morning.... Headed back out in the afternoon- and went west. Ran to the park and set up trolling west in towards the nose. We started picking up fish right away from 90 fow to 115 fow. Ended the night with 2 nice kings one 19lbs, the other 22 lbs, and a mixed bag of steelies, atlantic, and lakers. Hot lure was a moonshine purple glow and a silver streak blueberry muffin. Both kings came high and way out of temp.... the larger king was down 50 on the center rigger. Sunday- left the dock late due to the storms and went east again. Great marks in 85 fow and a steady pick of browns and lakers. we boated 7 fish in about 90 minutes, then the bite shut off completly. Slid out deeper and started marking suspended fish in 165 fow. Dropped everything deep- really deep........ to find good temp. Hit one king 131 down over 165 fow. Topped the scales at 24 and change. The only lure to catch fish was the moonshine purple glow again....... Left the dock at 4 PM for an afternoon trip. Ran straight out into 165 and set up on a north troll. We began hitting fish immediatley. 1 nice coho, then 1 big king, a steelie, and a smaller king. After about 1 hour the storm front came through, poured rain and the wind picked up to about 35 mph from the west. 4-5 foot waves in a matter of 20 minutes so we decided to pull in and head to the weigh station. The big king hit a diver spin dr combo out 300', all the other fish came on the same moonshine purple glow, down 105 and 95. The big king topped the scale at just over 30 lbs. Too bad she was so skinny, she could have been a monster........ 41" long- and no clipped fin...... First 2 pics are of fellow LOU Member- Sharpie with kings from Saturday. Last one is mine.
  18. Hans- Is Lars coming into town for any of the Fall derby? We should try to pick a day and go out, Craig and I are fishing every weekend and most Monday and Tuesday evenings....
  19. On the water at 5 pm, tried the 125- 150 fow range that has been productive. Caught one king on a gater down 65. Decided to pull and head north. Ran out to 300 FOW, screen was blank- nothing anywhere, no marks, no bait..... Ran back into the 100 range and started to set up. Took another king, down 85, then a 9 lb laker on the 95 rigger. Decided to run copper as our 6th rod. As I was clipping it to the outrigger, I felt a tug... handed the rod to my dad. 20 minutes (and 400 feet copper later) he landed a laker that was 19.11. Came on a fishlander super glow- mag size.
