  1. The front had them not too active this weekend, my usual spots only produced small browns, never hit a bow and I was in the zone, even the temp breaks were dead. I fished all high zones for silver.....and didn’t spend much time as the bite was not happening with quality.
  2. Great day Alex! thanks for the report. Love those orange finned lakers this time of year. Your expertise on silvers hasn’t left you either, way to go.
  3. I couldn’t resist those marks in the temp......you told me to stay high, got two quick and then dropped to the temp and washed lures while you were catching.....a great lesson learned and that is the case on these bows....they are way out of the temp, you don’t mark them and they even feel warm when you grab them out of the net......no wonder they’re not jumping. Stay true to it even when the screen is blank, they are there.
  4. Not this year, but yes, small dipsey on a #3 setting, 90-120 out. Remember to circle, they love hitting on those turns for some reason. Dipsey and wire dont turn well on smaller circles, but I have caught them on them. You will be there at the right time, mid August to September is really good, but remember.....if its silvers you want....set them high and be patient, it's always easy to drop for lakers.....it takes time to find them, most every point holds them though. Good luck.
  5. The bass are fun and go back, a lot in that upper column. Have only gone up to your area once Alex, and it paid off, but the weeds were bad. Stayed south this weekend, great having no fleas, but that jade colored water we get this time of year slows them down a bit. Justin I’m going into walleye withdraws, but soon the fall will come and I’ll be on it again. For now these silvers are fun and cooperating well.
  6. Good silvers still to be had. By no means quantity but good quality. All fired this weekend, core, copper, and high riggers. Algae had water discolored and none of these bows became airborne. It's like they didnt want to come up into it. I know I sound like a broken record but if you want silvers, fish high, stay committed to a zone, and when you hit one, reduce spread, cover water and circle. Speeds were between 2.6 and 3.2.
  7. At a boy, those browns are nice sized, fun on that lighter gear man.
  8. Believe it or not , no show......I had a double on.....smallmouth on the main and the big bow on the slider......they were fighting each other, I didn’t know what was going on. Some major runs though.....I saw the smallmouth, and thought to myself, your nice, but damn strong for a smallmouth......then a huge flash of silver underneath and gone they both went again.......I landed the smallmouth by hand, trying to take the hooks out while the big bow was going crazy yanking on me and the bass.....lucky I didn’t loose it.......she buried the spoon and it was in her gills....that might have kept her from getting airborne especially when the bass was yanking on her too. Crazy but that’s what makes a great experience and a crazy story!
  9. Fleas are non existent which is awesome, however the weed mats have taken over. Quantity of silvers dropped this week but bigger fish started to hit with one super fish at 29 inches. Still many small stocked browns are keeping riggers busy. Core was dead and 200 copper fired a few but it was high rigger that was taking quality, 40 and above was key. And bigger ones we lost in the cooper again. No secret, graph says it all where temp is.....current, that's another story. As always, find that first one, reduce the spread and circle. Bait still sparse.
  10. In all fairness ice, go to Lowes and by a 48inch by 24 inch piece of stainless diamond plate........its $90!!!!!!! Stainless is expensive!!!!!!!! But it will last.
  11. X 2 on the stingers, I use them, and one day washing them the film and/or finish comes off of them, spend good money on them to have the finish come off in a couple of trips or less.
  12. The flurry continues, found them Friday night, got my son and his buddy on the action, still a lot of small stocker browns but they keep the rods firing. As usual the upper column producing 50ft and higher, mostly rigger and slider bite but copper stayed busy too. No core for me this weekend, lost 8some good ones wrapping off riggers into the coppers, they know what to do, but when I took coppers out, riggers wouldn't fire, go figure......chaos is better than nothing. Speed at surface 2.5-3.0. Colors didnt matter, as always.....find them....keep circling them.
  13. The night game is a fun game for sure, great job.
  14. Just can't do the heavy line, I know it's better for fleas not to grab on, but man, even the downrigger cables were coated. I run 12lb main, and the flea build up did not deter the silver bite which is crazy......but getting them to the net.....another story......it gets too bad I go more to copper and core which I guess is just as bad as 50 lb test, but at least you can watch the board RIP back. Higher speeds were key for me too, coupled with smaller spoons, color didnt matter......as I always say, once you find them, reduce gear and circle and circle.
  15. No Justin, I haven’t, water temp inside went to 77, bait wasn’t showing up good, dissolved oxygen terrible, even bullhead dying in tight. I missed the window, now if you fish, you might get 15 minute increments of explosions and their going back out deep to catch their breath, tough when it’s like that. just stuck to silver fishing the last 2 days. Lost some great bows cause I had 5 yards of solid fleas to get off the lines, nothing like getting line burn on your hand trying to take off fleas with a big bow on that decides to take a few runs on ya, that’s where the copper saved me.
