  12. You coukd take a charter and shorten the curve. Plenty of good capt's out of that port. Tell them up front what you are looking to learn and I'm sure you'll find someone to accommodate you. It will save a lot of trial and error. Just a thought. Shawn

  15. I went today with friends Ed and Bob. We got there at 1:30 fully expecting to find long lines and a very crowded store, but instead found a decent parking space, friendly employees, and a busy, but not overly crowded store. I expected the store to be bigger and was disappointed in the narrow isles that 2 carts can't pass by each other. There were no apparent special or sale items and unless you received a sale ad in the mail you had no idea what was on sale. There were no ads in the store, but items in the ad did ring up at the sale price. There were plenty of friendly employees to help you and answer questions and it was common to see 3 or 4 standing around talking to each other. There is a little bit of everything in the store, but prices are higher or the same as many mom and pop stores, so Narbys got my tackle $ on the way home. There is a Bargain Cave in the store, but it's small and most items are not returnable. Might be nice if they had an area where you could open up a damaged box to insure what you were buying wasn't broken. Crossbows seemed to be a hot item and there were men with beards and hats were buying them up. All in all, I'm glad we went, but I don't think I'll be back anytime soon. Shawn
  16. Great report and pics! Sounds like a great time despite the weather. Shawn
  17. It's been a month since fishing on my boat and when 3 buddies who have never fished Lake O before wanted to go we decided on yesterday. We launched the 'Ol Penny at 6 and motored NW out if port and set up in 150 on a north troll. First rig in the water was the port dipsy out 165 with a white double crush glow Spinny and atommik sweetpea fly. Next was probe rigger set cat 55' with a tuxedo super slim. Next was starboard dipsy with a glow gator Spinny and mirage fly and as soon as it went in the rod holder to creep out, the port dipsy fires and James is first up. While the battle was on I got the port rigger set at 65 with a carbon 14 and a board out for a 300 copper with a mag SSW. James did great and soon a 12lb king hit the deck! After some pics and getting things reset the probe rigger fires and Matt is up to bat... He also does well with his first Lake O fish which turns out to be a beauty of a 10lb steelhead. Things were slow out the 27 line when we turned and headed sw. The fleas are bad which calls for cleaning lines every half hr or so and we would change lures as well. At around the 25 line the port rigger at 72 fires with an NBK and Scott is on the rod. Its a decent low teens king that makes a move near the boat over one of the wires and snap! No more fish and no more NBK. That was the first of 4 dropped fish and a break off on the 300 copper with a screamer on. We started to wonder if Scott had a banana for breakfast! We stuck it out between the 24 and 26 lines and Scott finally managed to get a fish - a 7-8lb king on a mag gator off the 80 rigger. He was also able to land the Skippy king we dragged around for awhile and found when clearing lines at 12:30. All in all we had fun despite the dropsies, fleas, and raindrops. And lunch at the black north was awesome. They can't wait to go again which is testament to the great fishery we have in our backyard. Shawn
