  1. Ice Fishing

    Pap that sure does, I see all these posts on Facebook, Thought it was kind of funny to have a fishfinder on a hole. Now make sense in the way you described it Nope I don't way to ice fish Thanks.
  2. Ice Fishing

    I have never ice fished in my life. The questions is why do these guys use a fishfinder in the hole they have in the ice?
  3. I don't have flags, my boards are old, there was no chop to speak of maybe a couple inches at the most. I use these same boards for pulling 400' of Copper in the Spring
  4. Gentlemen, I am an old guy with no reason to fib to anyone. Yes, I am sure the board went back they always do. We have been fishing Shasta Lake Ca since the beginning of Nov for the Browns heading out of the lake to go spawn upriver, The surface temp has been in the high 40's yes this board was every bit above my head, then in less than a blink of an eye it was back under the water then surfaced on the opposite side of the boat, In all my years I have never had this happen before. .We never saw the fish all we have been hooking up have been Browns maybe one or two Rainbows, We have been trolling between 3.8 & 4.1 mph surface speed using Optimizer lures number 3's & 4's . here is a link to my facebook page with pictures of the Browns we have been catching. yes are Browns are nothing compared to what you guys hook up, but for here there not bad.
  5. There was only two of us in the boat, otherwise, I would have had my mast up. Not much of a current. Browns are on the surface now.
  6. Last week we running a 4 board spread out the sides of the boat. Two Walleye boards on each side, one about 40' the other close to 20'. On the port side, the board that was at 40' came out of the water close to 6' and disappeared before I could get out of my seat. Once up we noticed the board pop up 20' on the starboard side,by the time I got the rod in my had there was no weight from any fish. We were fishing in over 200' of water so I know it was not bottom. Just wondering if anyone one has an idea of how big this fish might have been? We have been hooking up a lot of Browns in the 3 to 6 lb range over the last two months.
  7. Under normal use, one would snap it to your downrigger cable at the ball, not affecting anything
  8. Just a thought, I do have one and I thought about it. I think you would be way off the depth once you took off the TD would be different I would think? My Fishhawk on the dash would not help so I bought the TD couple months ago to get true blowback off the riggers at depth
  9. Gill I want to run off in-line boards or my mast and big boards 'During the Fall to Spring I will run 50', 100' Copper off the inline boards getting just below the surface But now that I am hooked on the Optimizer spoons and there higher speeds have been hooking up Larger fish
  10. So your thinking 6' to 7' per 100'
  11. Copper at 3.8 to 4 mph Anyone know what the sinking rate of Copper would be at higher speeds of 3.8 to 4 mph?
  12. I use the Mags have Bert's holders
  13. Fed X delivered 6 new rolls of 45Lb , going on this weekend .
