  1. Congratulations on that gorgeous trophy ! What a fish!

    We were up there also this weekend and scored Saturday after losing 4 heartbreaking fish in a row.

    I always say, that river will almost break you mentally before she kicks ya out some fish. Your fish is well earned and im sure very appreciated, it aint the hatchery pond fishing up there.

    Great job, amazing fish , sure many memories were made but most of all- good job sticking it out threw the thick n thin. Determination is the key imo. The most successful guide in that area says he has a 25-28% success ratio so as long as you leave the dock with that in mind, ur expectations and dreams won't be crushed.

    Now, if I could just find that mid 50s again that straightened 2 outta 3 of our 6/0 treble hooks out a few weeks ago.............

  2. I can see in gamblers instance using the components name bc its a finished product/lure/attractor that is added to his rig.
    Your situation maybe a lil different but to be sure and for your added piece of mind, maybe reach out to Mustad for an answer.
    Most of all, have fun with your work and enjoy yourself! It's always cool imo to get bit with your own creations and I wish you many bites in the future!

  3. I'm in the lure business also so I think I can understand your concerns.
    Good luck on this venture but don't worry about repercussions advertising your lure components, I've never seen a company come after a builder . I rarely mention VMC, Wolverine etc even though I use them and doubt you'll have any issues.
    Hope you enjoy your hobby bc most days you'll love it yet other days will make you wonder what the heck you were thinking starting this. Absolutely best wishes and hope it turns out well for you.

  4. I've heard that during the striper run on the Hudson at Troy dam, if you get too close to the bank fisherman at the dam, they will take off their bucktail jigs, tie on a 4oz sinker and cast at you. As their weight gets close to you, they close the bail, breaking their line sending a chunk of speeding lead at you.

  5. When my new probe came, worked great and all issues were resolved. I also bought an additional battery pack n o-rings I just tossed in the rod locker just incase it's needed sometime.

  6. Call them, I had an issue and was taken care of the best they could have. My unit was older than yours.

  7. Fished 6am-10:30am, had the boats best day so far this year. Took my sister out and she got her 1st salmon.
    Went 11/15 with DW NBK being our best bait, spin drs with homemade flies and michigan stinger diehard being tied for 2nd best.
    Got the most action at 380' fishing around 50' down. It's always a treat to get the 19' boat out deep when conditions allow.
    Best wishes to all that get out. 20210713_081822.thumb.jpg.7ae03a6cd5fce5db9e04789afa98dc40.jpg20210713_065549.thumb.jpg.09c1cce2267c82055c7fc33d496bc936.jpg1399481640_20210713_1137082.thumb.jpg.2a2f31d662b7c22af4c93318e179c8bc.jpg

  9. Was able to take the boys out fishing Sunday morning. Counted around 2 dozen boats working that 100-150' . We hopped in line for around 45 mins and didn't see anyone hooking up or fish on the screen so we cut away from the crowd. 50 down we had 41 degree water temps again.
    Headed out deeper and at around 280', 65' rigger with green diehard spoon goes off and my son got his first king after a 15 min fight! 23.4lbs on the scale and needless to say- high 5s n hugs were instore!
    Lost another king out there shortly after on glow frog spoon 50' down n landed a smaller laker which was suspended way up high.
    Looked at the weather and said rain was coming, turned the boat towards shore and high diver with mag carbon 14 starts ripping and my sons best friend Logan gets his first steelie. Pulled rods after that n headed in.
    Made it to shore and the rain started, perfect timing! Got ice cream after n soon after that the war stories started. What a memorable morning! Fished 7:30-10am.

  10. Waves kicked us off today at 9am but went 4/5 on spoons off rigger 50' n 60' down and mag off board in 120-150'.

     

    Fishhawk told me 41 degrees at 58', new replacement probe so I hope it was ready right. Do people do like factory resets when they get a new probe?

     

    Crazy to see the lake flip and get cold like that to a rookie 1st year Lake O wannabe salmon guy.fAYh5WFa-498820266.jpg20210709_074409.jpg

  11. ^^^ eriebuck, thanks again for selling me the items I paid for here on the classifieds which you said you shipped just to refund my $ and renig on the deal.

    Bty if you read Yankees previous posts he has graciously written for us so we can have the success he's having- that he normally runs the coho stuff off boards on fishusa stealth leadcore up higher. Almost like what you were going to sell me.

  12. Think thats is the issue? Display on boat works but couldn't read probe. Took probe apart, wiggled the battery wire connection, seemed dry n nothing came of it.

    Just ordered new battery pack like mentioned. Thanks.

    Fish Hawk sells replacement battery packs. They are cheap. Buy 2 and carry a spare6056FAB2-A622-45F7-9F82-61127D6B2B66.thumb.jpeg.b9998cfe4dbe5133594c19ead02a713c.jpeg

  13.  

    Barely marked any bait today and fish hawk crapped the bed but got a brown, couple steelies and a nice king today. 160' back on a mountain dew ff over 115' took the king and steelhead. Fleas have started but not bad.

     

    Replaced batteries, think the connection from battery pack to probe is faulty. Anyone have a fix for this? Trying not to buy a new one. Maybe I'll contact customer service for fish hawk. fRzGOCyO-2918916932.thumb.jpeg.21ebccf6d778f7bfa01441e1aca5750b.jpegZwwvUY2O-2925235873.thumb.jpeg.723e8c390326459f14e4e0d91333ce2a.jpeg20210624_092723.thumb.jpeg.c2fcc3457de5765c16755aacde0ea155.jpeg
