  1. Speed is always important too... too fast or two slow makes a big difference... without a probe (I'm assuming) shoot for 2.8 -3.0 mph on gps
  2. For me, anything green... mountain dew spin Dr. With hammer fly is always a good one. Black and green spoons always do well, NBK spoon etc...
  3. 250 foot was good out of Wilson this past weekend. Went 12-13 on saturday. Biggest was 22 lbs, 11 kings and one steelies. 8-9 on Sunday biggest was 25 lbs. Mostly a spoon bite, NBK spoon was the best producer.
  4. Had a mink pick my koi pond clean one winter... can't say I like the little buggers very much
  5. A good recipe is to take 6 ounces of bourbon, use the laker for fertilizer and drink the bourbon
  6. The sunset grill right there was also renovated this year, a couple nice spots to have dinner and a cocktail by the water
  7. I've never had luck with Kings after dark... Not saying it can't be done just saying it hasn't worked for me
  8. it's the HDS 5 gen 2 ive never done any software updates or anything so it's quite possible yours has the line, just be aware the line is roughly 1.5 ish miles or so West of the red can out there... Hate to have u keep trolling and looking for a line that's not there
  9. My Lowrance with Lake Insight doesn't have the border on the chart
  10. We were working the same water as you Yankee... First time we passed each other I said to my buddy who's pretty new to fishing that if that Trojan says Yankee troller on the back we are working the right water... Can't say we did nearly as well as you though...
  11. I've fished Nipissing and stayed at the shuswap camp. A great 4 days, but like has been stated, get the lay of the land a bit because u can lose a lower unit easily if you stray.
  12. Pics.... also has a 4 blade 10x7 high thrust prop and comes with the spare 9.25x8 3-blade prop
  13. For sale, 1992 Evinrude 9.9 2-stroke manual start with 25" shaft. Runs great, well maintained. Asking $550
  14. I don't know what the right answer is, but I do know trolling the last 2 years, we have still seen the huge bait clouds on the fish finder, but unlike years past there weren't any hooks hanging around the clouds. I find it hard to believe there is a significant lack of bait out there...
  15. Breaking one of those off would sting a lot more
  16. MC rockets outfishes my spoons and flies last year 2-1 easily. Some days they were the only things that fired.
  17. I run them unscented, slight bend and 60" behind an 11" paddle
  18. I got spooled right in that area 2 years ago in the fall.... i figured it was the biggest king I ever had on the line, or it was a Russian Sub. Maybe door #3 was your snag. If Jigstick scuba dives it, grab my Mtn. Dew Spin Dr. while you're down there!
  19. I think you're onto something here... add a Saturday derby into this, and its much easier on the hammy!
  20. Honestly, I think the only true advantage a "pro" has when going up against a well-rigged amateur is time on the water. If you're like me, and usually only have time to get out once a week, there's not much pre-fishing available and its more about the current conditions and where the fish are. If you get on fish and know what you are doing with your presentation, it's anyone's game. The pro's just have a lot more seat time to know exactly where the bite is going on.
  21. I only run 11" paddles with meat, the rest of the setup i use spin drs or pro trolls. With 11" paddles, be sure to lengthen the lead from paddle to the meat/fly (i go with 60-65")
  22. I have 60" of 30lb fluro between the paddle and the rocket. I tied it up so that the stinger sits about in the middle of the Rocket with the treble trailing right at the tip behind.
  23. The dalmation and the #69 - the 69 did all the damage - its hanging by the battery box door in the pic - 8 shots and the strip is still in perfect shape.
  24. A few logistic issues kept us off the water until this past Saturday, but it was a great first outing. We set up just east of the red can in about 190 FOW and rigged from there. The early morning bite was fast and furious, boating 5 kings the first hour, with the largest being 14 lbs. Most fish came in 210 - 225 FOW, and mostly on the riggers. The dipseys never fired all day. The 10 color core took a few shots as well pulling NK 28 black and silver. By far the best producing setup on the day was running an MC Rocket behind an 11" paddle. I only had 2 of these on board as I just ordered 2 from Fat Nancys to see if they worked... i'm a believer now. The rocket produced 8 fish for us on the day, including a very nice, very angry king that weighed in just under 25 lbs that took about 15 minutes to bring in. 85 down was the magic depth for this one. All in all, we ended the morning 13-18. Wish this fish came two weeks earlier
  25. Go catch some walleye this weekend in the islands, that'll pass the time. Then once you get the kinks worked out we'll get a friendly Saturday morning derby going.
