  1. Went 2 for 2 this evening 120' to 130' in front of the dunes right off the bottom. Both rigger hits, dipsys were dead.
  2. Same problem, and i was losing readings on plane. Raised it up, fixed all issues.
  3. I just got my unit back from Moor. They serviced due to some bad sensors that needed replacing. Used it the other day after getting it back and received some very weird readings. Temp guage seemed to work fine, but boat speed seemed to be in reverse. The faster I increased surface speed, the lower the subtroll would read. And the more I slowed the boat down, the faster the subtroll read. I called Moor and they thought that it was down currents. The readings were so completely inaccurate, that I don't think that was the case. This is what was happening - If my surface speed was 2, my downspeed was 1.25. As I increased my surface speed on the same heading, to bring up my downspeed, it actually reduced my downspeed. When I had my surface speed up to 3.75, my downspeed dropped to .5. I've fished on other boats with downspeed, and have never seen anything like this. Any thoughts what would cause this?

  5. And that my friends .... is why you need auto pilot. Panfisher sure makes it look easy:)
  6. Looking for a couple dipsey rigs (rods, line counter reels and wire...or I can spool them myself), 450 copper rod/reel, dipsey divers, etc...
  7. Iceman - 10-15 K. I knew the Lund would come up:) I've heard they're versatile.
  8. I need a hybrid. Something that's well suited for family fun, tubing, skiing, smallish lake fishing and LO salmon fishing. Not to hard a question, is it;) Right now, I do it out of a 1998 17' Sunbird 88 hp outboard and it really has served it's purpose well. I'm looking for something in the 18-21' range, would probably prefer staying with the outboard and I like fiberglass. For the fun and sun with the family, I really like the deck boat layout, but the low bow probably wouldn't work for LO. I'm still a few years out from 2 boats, so gotta find something that will do both.
  9. And it got crazy good again that same day the last two hours before sunset. Good day in that depth for sure! Everything went. Dipsey's were better than riggers. Only line not to go all night was a flasher/fly cheated with a spoon for a stray steelhead. Concidence
  10. Nice job and glad to see you got the boat back on the water!
  11. Nice job and thanks for the report. I hate those slow 12-16 days
  12. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: Why Wait ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): 3/20. 3/21 Time on Water: 8-1, 7-12 Weather/Temp: unbelieveable Wind Speed/Direction: 2-3mph south Waves: none Surface Temp: 43-55 Location: west of catfish and north of sandy pond LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 0-2, 4-5 Total Boated: Species Breakdown: browns Hot Lure: nothing real hot Trolling Speed: 1.9-2.9 Down Speed: 2.2-2.4 Boat Depth: 5'-40' Lure Depth: surface - 38' ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Fishing was not hot, but the amazing weather made up for it. Fished from the Mexico launch west almost to the stack on day one. Gin clear water everywhere. Best temp we could find was low 50's in 40 fow. We did nothing in tight, went 0-2 in 40 fow on the surface, but we covered the entire column. One we lost was a good fish - swivel opened, a shame. We were told by others that "we should have been there yesterday". 2nd day we fished north of Sandy Pond past the creeks. With the slight south wind, north of the creeks were best with water temps reaching 54 - just crazy. Water was nicely stained with lots of debris. Went 4-5, nothing with size. Took fish from 5'-15' fow. Firetiger, black/silver/blue/silver all took hits. First fish as we were letting out lines and 4 came before 9 am. Two great days to be out!
  13. Let us know how you do. We were in the estuary and river last weekend and a couple boats came into Pine Grove as we were pulling out. They had a few knockoffs.
  14. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): Time on Water: Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: Surface Temp: Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: Total Boated: Species Breakdown: Hot Lure: Trolling Speed: Down Speed: Boat Depth: Lure Depth: ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Any reports over the past couple days from in front of the Salmon River in 10'-150' FOW??? Sounds like the Steel and jack kings are good out past 400 FOW, but that's too long a run for my boat. My cousin is coming up tomorrow and we were planning on fishing the river, but since all those coho's moved through a week or two ago, sounds like things have really slowed down. The lake and estuary must be stacked with kings, cause not many have run the river yet - but sounds like those kings in the lake have Fall lock jaw. Being the river is slow, I'm thinking of putting the boat back in.
  15. First couple hundred yards from the launch until you hit the channel is 2-3'.
